Einige mögen es vielleicht schon gemerkt haben, für alle anderen: Ich beende UARRR.org an dieser Stelle erst Mal. Nach über sechs Jahren fühlt sich der Ort nicht mehr richtig an und etwas neues musste her. Das heißt nicht, dass es hier niemals weiter geht, aber derzeit spielt hier die Musik:
Danke für zig hervorragende Jahre und wir sehen uns auf der anderen Seite.
Today, we are happy to announce that we will be introducing a new Yahoo! logo next month.
Over the past year, there’s been a renewed sense of purpose and progress at Yahoo!, and we want everything we do to reflect this spirit of innovation. While the company is rapidly evolving, our logo — the essence of our brand — should too.
Yahoo presents a rejected version of their new logo every day for the next 30 days. Interesting way to promote a new logo.
In an amazing use of paper, IKEA’s new catalog can be placed anywhere your home, and appear as any piece of furniture on a smartphone or tablet.
Taking this principle further, we can actually create the illusion that your action has taken effect when in reality it hasn’t yet. Instragram co-founder Mike Krieger calls this technique “performing actions optimistically”. As an example, when you like a photo on Instagram, the button changes instantly telling you that your action is complete.
His other examples are very interesting, too. You might want to keep these things in mind.
It should just, boom, rotate, and make a swooosh-like turn at 90 degrees and then bam, bounce a like jelly in outer space, but more whop-whop-bang in a microwave. Right?
I welcome Morten’s post very much. I used After Effects quite often in the last weeks to show how I imagined animations. Some parts of Morten’s videos are especially interesting, for example: I didn’t know you can build bounce effects through Java Script directly in After Effects. That’ll save me a lot of time.
Today we’re releasing something fantastic. It’s the type of thing that only LayerVault can do. It’s called the Project Style Guide.
The Style Guide is automatically generated as you work and is always updated with styles pulled from your latest revisions. Access it from your project’s sidebar.
Whoa, another great new feature by LayerVault. Here’s an example of one of those automated styleguides.
It’s a type of fishing net that is made up of two layers of different types of net. The fish – or your user – can either get caught up by the first layer, or the second layer, or they can get stuck between the two. They’re banned in most kinds of commercial fishing, but it seems you can put them in your UIs without any legal repurcussions.
On dark patterns.
It’s not everyday that a word you helped create gets added to this prestigious publication, so I thought I’d share a bit of the early history of the word “tweet.”
Craig Hockenberry describes the origin of the word “tweet” and how Twitterrific was born.
A Good User Interface
has high conversion rates and is easy to use. In other words, it’s nice to both the business side as well as the people using it. Here is a running list of practical ideas to try out.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with this list of things you might consider the next time you’re building a website.
Use shadows sparsely, and make them subdued. With the general lack of shadows in iOS 7, you don’t need much to make an element stand out. Consider new levels of subtlety.
No matter if you like how iOS 7 looks like or not, you have to update your app to make it feel :f1 right :f2 . This post offers a few clever approaches to do so.
