Thanks, but

  • Can you provide data, or sources for, the claims here? For example, ’27 characters will cover 90% of search queries.’
  • Are any of these patterns AB tested? If not, how can you confidently recommend, for example, limiting placeholder text to ‘just a few words, otherwise you actually increase the cognitive load.’ Isn’t it possible that clarity is better for users?
  • The only source or reference you linked to was to an article written by yourself, about icons.
