    If you're running an Agile Engineering Team - I highly recommend clubhouse.io hands down one of the best products for engineering (I even use it for Marketing activities as well) . Its super cheap fee up to 10 users and is one of the most straight forward/not a complex tools I have used in comparison to Jira.

  • Posted to Facebook are trialling a Reddit style up / down voting system, May 14, 2018

    I was at the Facebook developer conference this year when they announced this feature. One of the devs I talked to mentioned that they were going to be testing this new feature over the next few months before rolling it fully out across the platform. He also mentioned this feature would hopefully help/train fb to improve identifying negative comments/post, which I thought was pretty interesting.

    The UX on this site is so BAD in my opinion!

    So a few comments:

    1. Typography - I really think you should relook at how you are current sizes/line height and possibly refine. IMO it looks like you sorta threw that your typography together without thought. The about section really stood out to me the most, small text white on a black background is always really hard to read, makes me not want to read it :/ TBH I never like text on black backgrounds.

    2. Watch out how you use vwvh I see you use those units quite heavily in your CSS, IMO these units should always have a fallback and be adjusted for mobile & tablet. I have also had issues in the past with these units when considering browsers, some use these units differently especially between desktop & mobile.

    3. The menu - 1. on mobile make the animation quicker - I thought the menu was broken initially since the animation took so long. 2. If your going to have a dropdown add a icon or something to it to indicate. 4. On desktop for a UX side of things I had no idea the links where links. they look exactly the same as everything else. 3. The 1,2,3 links on the page are handy but I had no idea what they were for until interacted with.

    4. Your case studies on home page - They are really dark and small. Id say you have about 10 seconds or less to grab the attention of your user before they bounce, IMO the case studies I just scrolled right by, They really don't catch the eye at all when you are hiding them behind text & a dark overlay. I would recommend taking another look at them and make them 'pop' a bit more. Make me want to click them lol.

    5. The 'Design' & 'Code' links along the edge of the screen, I had no idea theses were clickable. IMO no user will interact with these, very unknown/can be looked passed very easily, especially if they are just scrolling though.

    Other notes:

    • Relook at your sites SEO & meta tags, make sure you are using your heading tags correctly, I saw you have 8 h1 tags on your home page.

    • Combine your JS & minify! Why not reduce the amount of your requests? Also don't load JS in the head unless you really need to can hurt performance.

    • Grab a free account on hotjar and set up some tracking, it records visitors & has a pretty cool feedback tool. I find watching users can give you some great insight's on how to improve.

    Ok I think that is for now! Hopefully that helps. Let me know if you have any questions!

    Just as a FYI, I use AdGuard Ad Blocker, and it blocks your page saying:

    This web page at hamzaahmedgd.myartsonline.com, has been reported as a malware page and has been blocked based on your security preferences.

    Not sure what your running on your site.
