Contrast Sensitivity in the Craiglist experience
Craigslist is not known for its well-designed user interface. Many designers have developed (pro bono) complete redesigns, but the designs fell on deaf ears. Not wanting to contribute to graveyard of dead design mockups, I took a different approach. I focused my efforts on researching the biological functions of how the human eye perceives light, contrast, and color to critique the current design of Craiglist. I then tweaked their design from that perspective (as opposed to that of a graphic/web designer). I decided to send the project directly to Craig (of Craigslist), he responded and thanked me for the careful research and said that he would discuss it with his design team.
