Classic design principles still prove true today, but there are no good tools out there to help you apply them on the web.
Spur is a fun and easy way to critique web designs in ways you’ve never done before. Just paste a URL (or upload an image) and you’ll be able to use seven different tools to help you find what’s working (and what isn’t!).
Looking at your web design through Spur’s seven tools will give you new perspective to see things you might have missed. You might think twice about that bright green Buddha after you look at in high contrast! Or maybe not…
Spur generates a unique URL you can use to share your design with any of the tools applied to it. Get feedback from your team by uploading the altered image to Notable; they’ll be more than happy to dig their Spurs into your design.

No, it's not the official Tottenham Hotspur too I'm afraid though it does work with the speed and efficiently of a rampaging Gareth Bale. While theres no shortage of classic designers out there there is certainly a dirth of good design tools to help you apply them on the web. Spur is a design and feedback share tool that's not only fun and simple to use but also manages to do a bit of analysis on your website too.
Spur is designed to critique a web design to optimize it to see what works and what doesn't. Just feed in your URL or upload an image if that's more convenient. Spur sets all seven of it's design tools into operation to analyze your website and see which areas are drawing attention from your viewing public and which areas need some work. Maybe that huge Rooster logo wasnt such a great idea after all. Spur can analyze in high contrast to see your good points from your bad. Spur generates a unique URL you can use to share your design with any of the tools applied to it. Get feedback from your team by uploading the altered image to Notable for their comments and possible ideas.
It's surprising that there aren't more design tools for the web available. They are certainly in demand as everyone would love to take their web design to the next level. Spur is simple and free to use and, once you have set it in motion, it does all the work for you and provides you with the ammunition to fire your web designers. Only joking guys. Spur is well worth a look see for anyone interested in web design tools.
