As the rate of technological innovation increases, we have to rethink our methods when designing for the future. Here’s how to approach the needs of the users of tomorrow with forward-thinking, ethical design.
Designing for user needs is at the core of UX, but have you ever tried designing a solution for a user who doesn’t know they have a need for it yet?
Innovative technologies are reshaping our lives to a degree where disruption has become the norm. This poses incredible challenges for designers to become…
I created it because I couldn’t find it. We’ve only just introduced it here at momondo but my hopes are that it will make it easier for:
I didn’t have to worry about our browser stack — its a devtool. This meant I could rely on fun stuff like var().
CSS variables are really useful because we can overwrite them in media queries which gives us preprocessor like powers…
Memories, pictures and people from a 4½ day trip
I needed a break.
❶ Flight tickets were fairly cheap. ❷ I had no idea what to expect. ❸ They had snow clad mountains. ❹ I had heard good things.
The western media paints a dark picture of Iran but the recent nuclear deal and subsequent lifting of some sanctions has somewhat alleviated that although lacking human rights is obviously still a major concern.
Our wonderful brain helps us navigate the world by grouping and simplifying what it encounters to make sense of it all. …
Below you’ll find talks, code, tweets and pictures (video should be coming soon). Our next event will be about “bots & conversational interfaces” and will probably be announced in a week. Stay tuned.
With Progressive Web Apps being the big thing and ServiceWorker allowing us to build applications resilient to unreliable networks we need to reconsider what we consider “best practices” for web development. Our world of Desktop machines with fat connections got replaced…
TL’DR: Scroll down for videos (you should at least watch the first 30 minute demo and talk by Lars who’s practically blind himself).
Very informative about a topic that has been given too low priority for way too long. Lars sharing his struggles (and successes) was very powerful. — Ulrik H. Gade
The limitations of a mobile screen really helped us focusing more on what’s important to present on a website. I strongly believe that a focus on creating more accessible websites will make them better and easier to navigate for all users and not just people with permanent disabilities.
As a designer and programmer I want to:
not just build the product right but also build the right product.
To do that I create prototypes and test them with my users. Unconvincing prototypes can distract the users with the risk of skewing the feedback I get. But 🕰 = 💰 and creating convincing prototypes used to take a lot of time. …
I made these lamps for my hallway and I quite like how they turned out.
They are easy to make. All you need is:
This is not really instructions. Just showing you guys some pictures. There are many great tutorials online already on how to cast concrete — also using Lego.
But feel free to ask me any questions should you have any.
I’m proud to announce that Crafting Type will be coming to Copenhagen this spring where they’ll do a 2½ day workshop open to anyone interested in typography.
You can read more about the event and sign up here — early birds will save 10% and students get 50% off. The schedule will probably look a bit like this and the instructors will be Thomas Phinney and Blondina Elms Pastel.
1508 has kindly offered to host so we will be in the centre of Copenhagen.
Let’s draw a heart. I’m drawing using spiros because that’s how I can draw curves fast. Our heart looks like this:
