Designing For The Multifaceted User Advertisement Designing with users in mind is a tricky thing. Not only does it require of us a sound understanding of who our users are, but the actual act of translating what we know about them into a well-designed product is not always an obvious or easy path. Currently, our user experience tools tend to focus on “who” users are. So, first, let me explain where I think our current toolset falls short, and then I’ll walk you through an example that uses this newer technique. We Are Multifaceted Put yourself in the shoes of a user for a moment. Imagine also, then, that you’ve stumbled upon a blog post on a topic that you care strongly about. 1Acting differently according to circumstance and context is natural. What does this mean for us as designers? In short, our current tools tend to focus on the person, not on predicting their reactions and, therefore, what we should effectively be designing for.

Responsive Typography: The Basics by Oliver Reichenstein When we built websites we usually started by defining the body text. The body text definition dictates how wide your main column is, the rest used to follow almost by itself. Used to. Until recently, screen resolution was more or less homogenous. Today we deal with a variation of screen sizes and resolutions. In the heat of the relaunch I wrote a quick blog post on responsive typography, focussing solely on the aspect of our latest experiment: responsive typefaces. To avoid designing different layouts for every possible screen size, many web designers have adopted the concept of Responsive Web Design. Adaptive layouts: adjusting the layout in steps to a limited number of sizes Liquid layouts: adjusting the layout continuously to every possible width Note: Responsive design already incorporates a lot of macro typographic issues (type size, line height, columns width). Choosing a typeface The right tone Serif or sans serif? What size? Line height and contrast

Trends in interactive design 2013 Google Nexus Website Menu A tutorial on how to re-create the slide out sidebar menu that can be seen on the Google Nexus 7 website. View demo Download source Today I want to show you how to reconstruct the sidebar menu of the Google Nexus 7 page. It slides out with a really nice effect where some subitems get expanded as well. We will reconstruct this menu using unordered, nested lists and some CSS transitions. So let’s get started! The Markup Our menu will consist of two main parts: a main menu, the one that you can see at the top like a header, and the sidebar menu. <ul id="gn-menu" class="gn-menu-main"><li class="gn-trigger"><a class="gn-icon gn-icon-menu"><span>Menu</span></a><nav class="gn-menu-wrapper"></nav></li><li><a href=" Inside of the nav element we’ll add another wrapper that will help us with hiding the nasty scrollbar for Windows browsers. Now, let’s style everything. The CSS Let’s start by setting border-box for all the box-sizing:

15 Ethereal Examples of Ghost Buttons in Action Web designers, it would seem, “ain’t afraid of no ghosts.” More specifically, they seem quite fond of the transparent buttons which bear the haunter’s namesake, and the sudden explosion of immaterial outlines across a number of high profile, aesthetic-heavy websites makes a compelling case for their use. The name of the game for this trend is aesthetic appeal. Perhaps a counterintuitive emphasis, since these buttons stunningly eye catching while simultaneously aloof. In the gallery below, you’ll find animations, interactive elements, full-page ambient video, luxurious hero imagery, and a defacto outline of everything you can do with negative space. Before you move on to the visual buffet below, let’s examine the trend itself for a few moments. Mashing Your Phantasmal Buttons As much fun as it is to fall in line with herd behavior for no other reason than “everyone else is doing it,” one can’t help but speculate on the actual appeal of the bandwagon. tweet this 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
