Which one? Square or rounded?
@kev I'm not sure what sort of web utopia you're building, but with the wave aesthetic I'd go with rounded.
@proactiveservices that#s what started the thought - straight edges and waves go against one another, I think.
@kev I should point out I have almost zero design talent whatsoever, so you may wish to read any comment I make in a mirror, while upside-down.
@kev I've come to the conclusion that even if you want a 'square look' then even in that case a slight rounding off of sharp corners is always much better looking.
Sharp squares are always harder on the eyes I think.
@kev Depends! Needs to fit the design as a whole.
As such, you got wavy lines on that page, which suggests rounded. However, on other subpages you have everything appear rectangular in the main part of the page.
So I since the landing page allows more freedom (using the waves) while still suggesting consistency, I would go with rounded corners to stay consistently curvy within that page.
@kev Very well. Then I'd stick to rectangular rectangles. :-)
If I may suggest, I would consider adding one more corner to the replaced wave. (Such that no pair of angles and line lengths is equal.) I imagine this could look more lively, but that's just a guess.
@binyamin I mean, isn’t it obvious? Just trying to canvas for people’s opinion on rounded vs square.
@binyamin it’s a subscribe box that’s on various places on my site. Bottom of posts, my homepage, newsletter page etc.
@kev Rounded, but I like my buttons to be a part of the input box, like right next to it with no gap, and the touching edges of the input box and button aren't rounded
@kev Since I've been with Fosstodon, I've learned: Kev loves change. So start with round and then change to square? 😉
@kev square is definitely my preference here. I see the community disagrees though, haha. Not sure why, but I think it seems leaner and more simplistic, which is how I like things.
