  • Posted to Show DN: Noodles Explore, Oct 23, 2015

    Noodles Explore is my latest project to help anyone find the best recipes on the web as quickly as possible. Just enter whatever you're looking to cook, and Explore will find some fantastic recipes for you. You can see the recipes right there, and clip them back to your Noodles library in just one click.

    Enjoy, and let me know what you think!

  • Posted to The "Unsubscribe" experience needs to be improved, Oct 23, 2015

    Unfortunately, this is way too true. A while back on CodePen's podcast, there was an episode on email newsletters. They discussed some of these points, and how easy it is to make a one-click unsubscribe link.

    For my app Noodles, I occasionally send out emails about new features. I always get so frustrated by those kinds of insane experiences, so I added a single checkbox for either getting email or not getting email in the settings. And on a newsletter, if someone wants to unsubscribe, it's not a good time to attempt to "re-engage" them. So I stuck this at the bottom:

    Unsubscribe from Noodles newsletter

    It's just one click, no login, no crap. I wish other companies could be a little friendlier, too.

    Jekyll is great for most static sites, especially ones with blogs (but it's only for devs). For other things, React + Webpack is pretty sweet.

    This is obviously a great exercise, but in the end it's not super applicable on the web because it's such a huge sacrifice to accessibility, translation, SEO, and content editing for basically no gain. Props to the creator though — it's an impressive feat!

    Good point. I think here they're focusing on a really great, paid blogging platform — it can stick around for a while in a market where customers want good design and something that isn't going to shut down next week. Posthaven is OK but definitely not very popular. I think their decision is going to work out over the long haul.

  • Posted to 11 tips for prototyping with Sketch, Jan 15, 2015

    This is pretty slick! I used Sketch to explore different UIs for Noodles, and it was a huge improvement over Illustrator. I'm definitely going to check out the InVision/Sketch integration though!

  • Posted to Ask DN: Do you still put effort into designing 404 pages?, in reply to Kenneth Chin , Jan 12, 2015

    I disagree. You can build a really nice set of error pages in half an hour, and they extend your brand greatly when something happens. While maybe it isn’t technically “valuable” it adds so much to the UX.

    Definitely. For Noodles, a cooking app, the error pages have "500. Our Noodles are in a bit of a tangle.” I think they really show off your brand and are a great opportunity to have some extra fun.

    Nice job on that! And Wunderlist's design is just awesome as well :)
