It could just be an image map like the current one, no web2.0 worries here. I think it looks fantastic.

The look of the site is rather basic anyway, possibly could use a little color - but really, I've gotten used to and comfortable with the way the site looks. Although I'm not feeling the "motion blur" shift knob although I understand what it is trying to convey.


Seconded. And the mixing of the Helvetica Ulta Light and Lucida Grande looks icky. (Mixing sans serfs like that rarely works well btw.)

Another vote against the blurred knob.

How about indicating motion with a ratcheted/staggered/trailed (or whatever it's called) image of the knob? Like if you enable Mouse Trails in Windows, or like combining a few photo frames where the background is the same but the subject has moved.

I can visualize it, I can't create it, and I don't know what it's called.

That's what blurring is XD. Just more rapid and numerous. I could make it blur the way you're talking about, but I tried it and you couldn't tell what it was anymore.


I will make a new one with the fonts fixed and they layout tweaked.

This effect is close but not quite exactly what I was talking about:

I don't know exactly how it differs from what I visualized earlier, but I know it's a little different.

I don't know what "Hyööörrrrggh!!" means or even how to pronounce it, but it seems like something that may be full of win.
