  • Posted to Does your design team have dedicated dev resources?, Oct 11, 2016

    We have a designer on each team (with usually around 4 devs and a product owner). These teams are developing features on a roadmap as well as improving usability. The key is to get usability prioritised along with your feature backlog. The best way to do this is to prove the value it has vs new features. A/B testing of usability improvements can usually provide some evidence for that - quite often we see usability improvements having a bigger impact than new features.

    Lets all remember that designer news was just a copy of hacker news when it came out.

    Really disappointed this isn't anything to do with Taylor Swift.

    Love the simplify of this site. So easily could have been scroll-jacked to hell but they resisted. They've put in the bare minimum, and nothing else. Even the loading spinner for the 360 view is brilliant.

    Can you add NSFW to the title?

    This is bad. Agree wholeheartedly with the review. This new logo gains nothing except some horrible rounded corners, and loses the recognition the old logo had grown.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Any good examples of either/or form fields?, in reply to Arielle Aurrichio , Mar 23, 2016

    Do you mean their login form? It's pretty much what we've landed on. 1 field, multiple input possibilities. Thanks for your help though!
