Disconnected China
Working digitally has some similarities to the physical world. For example, when painting, brushes can break down, lighting can change, and models can shift. Often these variable forces have interesting visual results. We've collected a handful of our favorites from the Connected China project. This first image is the result of Katy testing out the homepage on Windows through VMware:

The next two bugs were caught by our own Mark Schifferli when we lost him to the cavernous org chart. Upon resurfacing, he had captured this shot of "The Central...Xi Jinping." “The Central Committee” had been shortened with some comically large text that didn't fit properly. This happened back in July 2012...a foreshadowing of Xi's election as the new top leader of China in November 2012!

This last image isn't a bug, but it gives a glimpse of the artistry behind UI critiques we share with each other. Magenta has an important role when we are marking up comps; however, this creeping hand by Jimbo Grady was a first and favorite. We suspect this won't be the last time we see the pink arm of doom (with French cuffs) added to a mockup.
