A while back we asked some designer associates to suggest some redesign options for Citation Machine. Our two number one goals were easy appeal and operation, and almost now change in the layout and operation of Son of Citation Machine. This may seem like an impossibility to many of you, but I think that they achieved it.
Even at that, we’ve decided to pursue the (slightly) new look in phases. It seems that any time I try to enact an improvement, many people “freak” — and rightly so. The primary advantage of CM over other attribution tools is that it is quick and simply, and it stops being that when you have to figure out some new layout.
When you visit CM, you will see phase 1 of the change. Mostly, it’s a new logo, new color for the main menu bar, oh! and the squirrel’s running the other way.
One important deviation from the new look suggested by the designers is that I’m keeping the squirrel. I’ve become fond of the fellow. Perhaps I can put a red hat on him.
