    Nice... If only they had the ability to do if/then statements... You'd be able to stitch together some pretty convincing prototypes.

  • Posted to How can a self-taught frontend developer transition to a UI/UX designer role?, Mar 14, 2017

    I'm a self taught UX designer with some front end chops. I sorta learned it all as I went.

    There is plenty out there on the web with blogs, podcasts, interviews... I think it's important to follow the people you find in the industry that are vocal. A lot of us don't actually share much.

    My best advice is to constantly examine everything for a while. Recognizing the pieces of an experience that make it better or worse. Think of ways things could better, and don't hesitate to question why something should exist at all.

    "Be obvious."

    Something that for me, means that your goal should be to create something that feels familiar enough to use without being explicitly told.

    I had been thinking about this a lot recently and have come to some different but similar conclusions. Haven't messed with craft much, but will be looking into it again after reading this.

  • Posted to But most of us want minimal CMS for portfolio + blog site, don't we?, Jul 03, 2016

    I've been looking into the options out there but found the same lackluster options...

    With that said, my 'dream CMS' is much different from yours.

    *Edit content like a Medium blog post *Version control built in *Sketch plugin to import content updates and export new mocks *Meta data and automation integrated for the small stuff

    Let's just go ahead and throw in internationalization... Custom variables... Math operations, loops, and logic...

  • Posted to Show DN: I made a CSS3 scroll position based animation library, Jul 01, 2016

    Even though you mention that it's dropped for mobile, it does seem to work as it does on the desktop when I'm on my iPhone with iOS 9.3.2 in Safari.

    This might work out nicely for my portfolio project. Thanks for sharing!

    Wonder what separates this from squarespace, or any of the other website builders out there.

  • Posted to Why the Comment Section on Dribbble Sucks, Jun 08, 2016

    I talked to Dan, the founder of Dribbble, at a meet up a few years ago in DC...

    I said to him that I wanted to be on Dribbble so that I would become a better designer. Once I got on it, I didn't get any critiques and my designs only got better with my own experimentation.

    I thought maybe having the ability to add write a "for their eyes only" comment with markdown such as a hashtag would be something I would love to use. No one wants to openly bash a design, but I think if we had the ability to do something like...

    #feedback Your line height and margin could use some work, and I'm not sure about that font type for legibility reasons.

    Only the owner of the shot seeing that sentence... Who knows, maybe that would do the trick. It would also be easy to implement and iterate on.

  • Posted to 327 User Onboarding Experiences Categorized into 9 UI Patterns (and which you should choose), Mar 31, 2016

    These are generally bad onboarding techniques. Contextual onboarding is soooooo much better.

    Really great question.
