When they made Sofas!

At times I wonder – The companies that provide best of the service solutions are somehow not able to implement those solutions within their organization itself. One of such examples is ‘madebysofa.com

They produced apps like Versions the ‘Subversion Client for Mac’ and Disco the ‘Powerful Disc Burning for Anyone’ as the company states. Honestly, I am impressed with the design of both these websites.

Another product of this company is Checkout – which won Apple Design Award runner up, in category of ‘Best Mac OS X Leopard User Experience’ for the year 2008.

I think a few small considerations can add value to user experience in ‘madebysofa.com

  • Landing screen has links like Products, Work, Company and Blog. When I clicked on Products – the content for it opened below in the same screen. It would have been great if the arrows pointing sideways [>>] would have also been directed downwards [v] once the content is visible.
  • The screen has good amount of vertical scrolling, maybe a link to ‘top’ at the footer would have been helpful for the person to avoid the effort of scrolling back to the top of the screen.
  • The ‘Work’ section allows the user to view the portfolio by clicking on ‘next icon/screenshot’ but does not provide any option to view the ‘previous icon/screenshot’.
  • Horizontal scrolling could have been avoided in Firefox and Internet Explorer. Yes, the products are for Mac, and probably it works well on Mac; but other operating systems could also have been considered 🙂

I’m sure madebysofa is one of the most creative company that exists in today’s world, and it has to be as it is associated with Apple.

    These people essentially educate you on everything that you must
    know with no gems are generally not transformed with regards to all
    of them instructing you on in order to earning
    money from home on the internet. The verification is mainly conducted to make the companies free from any
    loss in respect to their reputation, time and wealth
    as well as provide a healthy working environment to
    other employees. Bad credit means you defaulted on repayments of loans and faced
    CCJs or filed for bankruptcy and your credit score on FICO is below 600.

  6. Another Japanese-style window treatment are panel track blinds, also know as sliding panels.
    Unfortunately it is impossible to list all state sponsored loans here because
    it is too many to mention. All interest paid on the loan is
    deposited into your own account, so you actually pay yourself
    the interest.
