Be nice. Or else.
And here I was hoping for some fresh examples from this thread: https://gearpatrol.com/2015/05/14/vintage-hi-fi-sound-systems/
I tried to explore the underlying principles of our interactions with space. Hopefully this will help people who are currently working with AR and VR interfaces to see beyond what is currently technically possible.
For me they’re all a bit too similar to really say something about liking one more than others.
In my humble opinion you want to steer away from what anyone person might like or not like, and move towards why one solution works better than another.
I just started watching some excellent talks from the Leading design conference: https://vimeo.com/clearleft
Have a look at (for example) Peter Merholz talk on what is expected from a design lead(er): https://vimeo.com/243666544
Or more hands on, he also shared this framework to distinguish a senior from a lead designer: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/1/d/1m-Cso3848CgEz0eng5spL0lDppnwOgt726jJ01pVwO8/htmlview
Take it one step further and you can start selling sketch templates, like the people at Great Simple are doing: https://www.greatsimple.io/ :)
Probably look for the more ux-y end of the portfolios, for example: http://simonpan.com/
No-one ever claimed usability was the only aim of UX.
Donald Norman who coined UX has this to say about it: "User experience encompasses all aspects of the end-user's interaction with the company, its services, and its products."
And continues with "We should also distinguish UX and usability: According to the definition of usability, it is a quality attribute of the UI, covering whether the system is easy to learn, efficient to use, pleasant, and so forth. Again, this is very important, and again total user experience is an even broader concept."
Perhaps good to know that there are lots of classics to be found in the DN archives: https://www.designernews.co/search?q=design+podcast&t=everything
Concluding: if you lay your content out in an F pattern (navigation bar, plus rows of content) you'll see an F pattern emerge. If you don't, you don't.
