    Yeah, how does one close the menu bar app?

    I've actually experienced the opposite, the page has a list of options where only one of them can be picked, but the designer uses checkboxes.

    I wrote about it, wondering what leads designers to do this when there's supposed to be a convention that exists. Like is it ok to break those rules now, or does nobody care about the distinction anymore?

    I’ve been increasingly bothered by the characterization of design lately, and this blog post has been percolating in my drafts for a while. Thoughts?

    I could be totally wrong, but I suspect it has something to do with designers understanding that UX is part of their responsibilities, and others having a limited definition of design.

    “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”

    In a similar vein, all the UX vs. UI articles, infographics, job titles, & domain names are a result of attempting to concretize roles so non-designers know what those tasks are and who should do them, except it's never that simple.

    Lastly, slightly off-tangent but still related: I don't believe that people in the design/arts-related industries are the only ones who should be called “creatives”. I think it's the same with UX. Managers, designers, developers—they all require creativity in solving their own problems, and they all should care about UX in their own ways.
