  • Posted to 3 Reasons to Use iPhone Mockups in Your Creative Process, Oct 01, 2019

    For instance, highly realistic device mockups presented in ¾ angle help to build trust in a product since dimension in tandem with perspective add an extra level of legitimacy to the showcase.

    Interesting perspective. The first think I think when i see angled mockups is, wow look at that fake mockup.

  • Posted to UX deliverables with real project samples from Clay, Jun 07, 2019

    I wish this included how each deliverable was validated with users or stakeholders. It's not like you just create an information architecture and run with it.

    Also I feel like this is missing some strategy or overall principles of experience-deliverable? It's very down in the details of interactions.

    And of course the never ending "whats the deal with personas" debate. The ones in this example works OK as an explanation of the jobs the app should solve, but not much else. I'm way more fan of looking at it over time through a situational perspective.

    OK this intrigued me since the comments here were a bit strange regarding something as suspect as IQ tests online.

    2 of the people commenting and the poster have almost exactly the same upvote history. Where one is which links to this IQ site if you hang around for a bit.

    The colour picker link also links to which as the exact same design as this IQ site. Taking the nature of that site in to consideration, I'm giving this a pass.

    This made me laugh. Spammers always find a way. Reported here and on evernote.

  • Posted to 19 Free Fonts You’ll Want to Use in 2019, Trends and Examples, Jan 30, 2019

    Just over half the fonts are free, and some of them have some real issues that make them hard to work with I think. The trend analysis is so thin I don't know what to say.

    For actual font advice I'd much rather recommend

    Congrats, I think it looks great, I think it's so great and interesting to see how an org has embraced a new designer and how that is expressed in the product. Great things to come it looks like :)

  • Posted to A guide to designing better modal windows, Jun 27, 2017

    Ironic how the site has a horrible modal. In my experience modals are mostly used to cover a business need and not a user need, which usually produces horrible UX. Modals should be used for very context specific user inputs, and almost always activated by user action.
