Articles, Web

This is an excellent read and addresses issues such as accessible hiding, and content toggles. In regards to focus order, this article brought up a good point about that the visual presentation on a screen might not match the DOM order because of the ability to reorder content through CSS (thanks to floats and flexbox).

Alternatives to hamburger menus

Articles, UX/UI

Some interesting alternative to hamburger menus on mobile. The tabbed approach works very well if users will be jumping back and forth between these different places in the app. I think it really depends on the app or website content and intended user interactions on it as to which type of menu to use.

Motion Design is the Future of UI

Articles, Motion Design, UX/UI

Motion design is becoming increasingly more important in today’s UI design. It can portray things faster (and in less space) than words can. For example, if a user enters the wrong password. OS X does this very well… when a user enters the wrong password, the input box shakes and the password disappears. This message get across to the user a lot quicker than having to read text underneath the input box stating that it is the wrong password.
