Khoi Vinh recently revealed the new design for Subtraction, and it’s a doozy. Vinh’s new design is one of those designs — the kind that inspires you to try and match its brilliance while simultaneously making you want to hang your head in shame. I’ve been working on a possible redesign/restructuring for Opus (more on that later, hopefully), and looking at Vinh’s work, I see so much I can learn from — and how much farther I still have left to go.

It’s a wonderfully simple and beautifully-executed design, from the ultra-minimal color scheme to the hidden interface extras (orange has never looked so cool) to the ingenious use of a grid layout. Be sure to check out this detailed overview of the new design — and it’s nice to see someone putting the smack down on Internet Explorer.
