What "circle" is perceived as the most "round"?
Our eyes are a rather strange organ, which, often, deceives us. But if you know the features of human visual perception, then you can create a more understandable and clean design. Typographers are not the only ones who use optical tricks in creating readable and harmonious looking fonts. This knowledge is also useful to interface designers who organize communication between the user and the machine.
How to create visually proportional icons, correctly arrange objects of different shapes and perform an ideal rounding of corners. In the post there are more than 50 images.
According to our rough estimate, based on 20 years of practice, earthwork can "lose" up to 50-60% of the budget. On reinforced concrete and finishing is exactly 30%. On the errors of re-registration in collisions, the cost of engineering increases by approximately 10%. It is for this simple reason, when the "evil customer" implements the BIM-model of the building, wild cries and groans begin on all sides.
BIM-control will now be on all state orders on a new standard, so the cries and groans will be especially epic.
Here I see the trace of all systems, I can get an accurate estimate for each node: and when I move or add an object I will receive updates in all project and working documents at once.
What is a BIM model? This is a three-dimensional model of a building where all systems are docked and tied together in one single plan. We put an outlet in the room - in the general estimate there was a new outlet and the corresponding cable meter. The error of this model is 2%. On paper, usually take a stock of 15%, and the surplus of this stock is desperately "lost."
Let's show you better examples than I will tell.

Google's lead designer for search, John Wiley told about the new unified interface of Google’s services in a presentation at UX Week 2011. According to Wiley, it was the result of the biggest redesign in the history of Google. Interestingly, this interface has nothing to do with Google +. It is associated with Google +, because it was the first product of Google that used it.
Larry Page decided that Google needs a better interface right away when he became the CEO of a company in spring. Google Creative Labs that created Google’s Super Bowl ad and many others of the Chrome ads designed a new interface and the Google’s designers have been really surprised that finally they were allowed to create something bold.
Larry Page was very pleased with the result, although many employees of Google did not like a new redesign at first (especially the new interface of Gmail), but they have changed their opinions in a few days. This is a pretty big and important change for Google, and it was really surprising to find out that this was the idea of Larry Page.
