  • Posted to Microcopy - tiny words with a huge UX impact, in reply to Primoz Cigler , Apr 24, 2018

    It’s a big part of UX (writing, not the term). Phrasing things for maximum legibility and impact in error messages, help popups, explanations, etc. It is harder than it sounds because you can write the same thing multiple ways, yet only a few variations resonate with the audience or is appropriate in tone to give a product personality.

    In Figma, you press Command-/ (mac) and type what you’re after directly from the menu so if you have something selected and want to make it uppercase you just command-/ upp ENTER. It’s not as featured as Runner but I dont miss it!

    Set all colours up as swatches/componets on a symbol page, not just backgrounds ;D

    I'm still not sure what Figma's deal is, but it's a web tool so I'm good.

    It performs better than Sketch by a long shot, and there is a client you can download to get fonts syncing. The fact that it's web based isn't an issue at all, but a huge benefit for sharing any sort of work or basic prototyping. I use it for everything I can. Hell, you can even do it on linux! ;)

    Stephen, were there any discussions into using trained ML data sets? Pixelmator has some layer naming conventions but I can see this has a big future outside of photo manipulation.

    I have far too much excitment buying stationery to be stuck with a device.

  • Posted to Why you shouldn’t UX test by gender, in reply to Andrew C , Oct 15, 2017

    Health related apps where age, height, weight and gender determine body type and shape. The information, order and representation have differing priorities depending on the gender.

    You told us nothing. Only mention of “money" was Hongbao. No mention of anything design related.

    It’s really about not forgetting the subtle (or not so subtle) audio queues designers sometimes forget. It transcends language and culture and is just as important as visual queues in the UI. You can read the presentation PDF https://devstreaming-cdn.apple.com/videos/wwdc/2017/803gyqggd62btz0/803/803_designing_sound.pdf but I recommend watching/listening to it as it’s about sound!
