    Upvote from a design standpoint. Lots to learn here.

    • They do a great job of grabbing your attention and keeping it with the succinct video playing out the before and after.

    • They let you try it and experience the pain.

    • Low friction price.

    Areas to improve

    • Weird icon usage is distracting (especially the cloud one)
    • Clear CTA at bottom of page
    • The "I'm convinced" cta has really confusing placement.

  • Posted to Does anyone here actually use UI kits?, in reply to Bobby Womack , Feb 08, 2019

    This has been the main use from what I've seen. Devs and startups who don't/can't spend on design at the stage they are in.

  • Posted to I was inspired by "10 year challenge" and researched how popular iOS apps have changed. What do you think?, in reply to Elis Lilo , Jan 29, 2019

    Its crazy that the big change only came recently. It was categories and lists for waaay too long.

  • Posted to Flat Design vs. Traditional Design: Comparative Experimental Study, Jan 01, 2019

    "A flat icons search is performed almost twice as slowly as a realistic icons search, and is characterized by a higher cognitive load."


    I've had this gut feeling that this was the case, it just makes sense that the more affordances someone has, the lower the cognitive load and the better the usability. I hope this triggers more discussion and research into design topics.

    I hope 2019 will be more usability focused and less about homogenous trend following visual first design.

    Let's bring back depth, detail, affordances, but only if it improves the experience. Let's borrow from the real world again, but only after we test it. Let's open our minds to different visual styles that show our users we care about craft and thus we are worthy of their time because if we care about craft we'll put their needs first. Let's make designs that always meet AA standards of accessibility and take account for good and bad user behaviors. Let's make designs that are as inclusive as possible.

    Lets make 2019 about good, solid, user-centered, observation based design!
