Vimeo’s Code Art

by Nate Croft

I’ve been looking for a higher quality alternative to YouTube, and have really been digging Vimeo. So while I was there, I did like any other self respecting web designer/developer would and had a look at the source code.

It was there that I found this:


Now that is some pretty sweet ASCII-style logo action!

I was impressed with their service already, but this is a stylish touch that goes above and beyond the call of radness. Hi-fives to the Vimeo crew for professionalism with style.

  1. That is pretty slick…

    I wonder if there is an online ascii generator for something like that? I’m guessing there is maybe definitely plugin’s for textmate or something to do that?

    The usual place you see those is in readme files, not sure I’ve ever seen that in an actual coded page smile

    I like the point you made about “any other self respecting web designer/developer would” do… It makes me feel less the geek now, or more the geek which is it?
    I hope the 47M gang has a great Memorial Day weekend holiday there, enjoy!

  2. That proves the point I was trying to make in my Gallery post this week:
    ...wondering if anybody even reads them?

    I also dug up a link to a WebDesign Is Art wallpaper I noticed someplace.

  3. To the Geeks!

  4. Anyone know of plugins that generate ascii code?

  5. Never heard of Vimeo before, thanks for the tip.

  6. Never heard of VIMEO before but it certainly looks like a great alternative to Youtube.
