search cancel – Visual Feedback Tool For Designers

SpurApp.comPresented by ZURB (the ones behind highly-respected web tools such as Notable and Bounce), Spur enables designers to get a timely understanding of any piece of work they’re doing. We can say that Spur is a visual critique tool which works entirely on the browser, and that can be used for free. It empowers designers to perform many different operations that all lead up to the very same end: realizing how any site that they’re getting together stands from a design point of view.


For example, users of Spur are allowed to view any layout in a grayscale, to bump the contrast of pages to see which are more noticeable on first looks, to draw grid lines and figure out focal points, to have everything mirrored so as to focus on the actual design of the page and not on the text which is included on it… these are all tricks designers have been pulling for as long as the Internet has been around. Spur brings them all under the same roof, and it lets new designers pull them off as fast and efficiently as those who have designed sites all their lives. In Their Own Words

A fun and easy way to critique your visual design.

Some Questions About

Do these design tricks apply to just any kind of site or blog? Or are there contexts in which using Spur could be counterproductive?
