  • Posted to A/B usability test came back with 50/50 success. No Option for C. What do you do?, Jun 08, 2018

    The idea behind an A/B Test is to test designs, roll them out and do it all over again. So iterate and never stop. Because you will never find the winner on an A/B Test.

    Would also suggest that this kind of "design" is created by marketeers who drive for conversions. That`s bad. A real UI/UX Designer wouldn't design like that and if so he is an asshole...

    For now bodymovin is the only solution that exports usable "HTML" content in form of a JSON file out of after effects, that i know. The "coding" part is really easy. Have look here this might help:

  • Posted to The design of Google AdWords ads is starting to look like normal search results, May 29, 2018

    It's obviously clear what's happening here. I think that's not very transparent and honest what Google does here. Here, the stupidity of the user is shamelessly exploited due to financial interests.

  • Posted to What the hell happened with DN?, May 25, 2018

    I am not one of the early members of DN. I joined 2 years ago. I have to say it is hard to find cool discussion on DN. DN is so cluttered with the publishings of contributions for self-presentation. If i want to get inspiration i go to dribbble/behance/awwwards and so on. I go to DN to discuss/discover new technologys of our field. Not to see/talk to people who celebrate their own work.

    It is like Dribbble/Behance but without preview image. Would be nice to have some sort of private areas where people can share their links. If any one has interesst to build a clone i am happy with that. Just ping me i am happy to help.

  • Posted to Graphic Designer Redesigned Apple Music With Simpler UI and More Features, May 23, 2018

    Yeah always the same, i think this is the 1.000 version of the apple music app? Just creating a "better" version of a famous app to create some buzz. Why you guys aren't designing things for real purposes? Even when they are not be developed? Why have a take on an already established app?

    It won't make them a better designer if they create derivates of an already existing app. I doubt that these designers have learned anything in these kind of projects. They just some sort of copying already existing concepts that lies within the original app and altered it. I see nothing new.

    I always hear the same dilemma: I got no gigs but i need a project to show what i can do. Then please design something new. As a designer you should always push yourself to limits and try always something new. For Example:

    • Go to the next NGO or NPO and ask if you could design something for them for free
    • Ask a Friend if they need help in their projects
    • Check out some meetups maybe there you will find a project
    • Dive into momentum techonlogys like Bitcoin, AI, PAs, Conversational Interfaces, etc.
    • Start solving problems instead ripping of existing apps

    Don't get me wrong. I am bored of this kind of design derivates. They add nothing to the design community in my perspective.
