    Great motion and layout, the design is sublime, altough I struggled to get the main project navigation to do what I intended I had to go back a couple times to succesfuly scroll, the main nav should also have the ability to be dragged, instead, the website captures the mousedown event as a direction to open the project, but what i wanted was to scroll.

    Plan interactions by category, for example, plan for inputs, toggles, sliders, etc. these should transition within the same timing function, bigger media such as image blocks, grids, etc, might need some slowing down, so the way i do it is:

    1. Prototype desgin view, then 2. Front-End, then 3. prototype interaction, then 4. Populate content, then 5. implement interaction

    Reseraching cultural context is a step big brands always take before getting hands on a consumer product. Obv, not all agencies do it but it's a step towards formalization.

    Well, first of all, they read and process pictograms differently. Here at the studio, for example, there was once a difficult client, chinese, we couldn't ship because there were design nuances that had a meaning in chinese culture, for example, a green crown has a negative meaning towards some people, so we couldnt use a crown icon, and stuff like that.

    Hamburger Icon : Learnable, predictable

    Comic Sans: Whatever

    Normans Door: Learnable, unpredictable

    Fake Preloader: Predictable

    Infinite Scroll: Predictable

    The main thing to communicate trust is to allow the user to foresee what is going to happen.

    Walking late at 10m/s into an office you've never been into just to arrive at the meeting with a sore forehead is not exactly foreseeable
