Please, do not hire me for design and expect me to solve your business problems.
Some of us do offer this service.
Point should be more about being clear about this before the project kicks off!
Otherwise fully agree :) Solid post!
I love how every single comment here sounds like "I don't care fuck Photoshop".
Maybe 1 exception.
I'm actually pretty stoked about this. Will wait to see the reviews to see how stable and how "full" it is, but this sounds like a reason to purchase an iPad to me.
Remember people, it's just a tool, and has its uses.
How predictable is that?
I've been out of front-end for a while, and this question popped up in my head:
Is there a reason why you shouldn't set your body font size to 10px, always?
Can you elaborate, why is this discouraging?
Come on now.
"HI! Our name is Ownetic and you can be the first to find out what we do if you give me your email address!"
... so you want me to invest into something without being able to know what it is, what it does, why it's better than other places, without trying, etc?
Recognisability yes, learnability is different.
The main thing to communicate trust is to allow the user to foresee what is going to happen.
Not always. When an interface element gets used 100x per day, usability doesn't always equal "predicatability", hence "learnable". It's more about having the features there, so you can get away with imperfect predictability.
Inifinite scroll can cause huge usability issues where you can't link to a specific portions of it. You can't bookmark a section. You can't always easily scroll to that portion either. You also won't be looking at the same thing as someone else. Etc.
I talk from experience
... alllllrighty then.
Hamburger icon: learnable
Comic sans: get over yourself, it's areadable font
Norman's door: learnable
Fake preloaders: cost time
Inifinite scroll: cost time and break UI as it means you're never sure of where something is and you can't link to stuff anymore
Easy win for infinite scroll being the worst.
"LeBron sure is gifted!"
"What do you mean? He's not wrapped and tied with a bow!"
Suppose it was a tongue-in-cheek article? Bet the writer has kids. Dad joke level 100! :)
I'd use that if I was a one-stop agency that didn't have flexible access to designers.
