@killamouseski Hurts to hear that, Chim. Get well Ziggy.

@established1987 Nice. You should also see architecture in real life at Melbourne Open House this weekend. Look it up.

@oddysee It’s just faster and smoother. Tab switching gestures are really nice and the unified search/address was much needed.

Safari’s awesome again. Thanks Apple.

@Pesterino That’s a big smile! Great photo.

@andrewlitvak Of course. It’s just taking forever to download.

@andrewlitvak Yeah. It’s not right for the obvious ones, but if being aware of the alternate options is critical, then push it right.

7:26 AM Jul 26th 2012 in reply to andrewlitvak

@andrewlitvak Apple has placed primary actions on the right before. Highlighting it is key. On right can help users scan the other options.

@souvikdg I jumped on that deal too. No regrets. Loving the Mac app in particular.

Is there an online grid system for controlling the vertical rhythm? Most frameworks are columnar. The web needs a modular grid system.

Art direction for NGOs is an art in itself. Political correctness while provoking action, and privacy restrictions on people shots (victims)

A developed nation we may be, but there is nothing developed about our public transportation system. Woefully unreliable and expensive.

@metrotrains delays over 25 minutes on the Pakenham line and not a single announcement?

Writing is the most overlooked skill in UI design. Copywriters prepare content, but functional copy (headings, form labels…) is up to you.

@melizaho I don’t know how they get away with it.

@grahamrb But I assume it’s for credit card processing, and I’m making a group booking for a bunch of people. Not fair.

#ScumbagUX is @IMAXMelbourne charging an online booking fee PER person.

Reluctantly signed up to @foursquare. Getting swamped by badges and invites, but that free skewer @Sataybar for checking in was worth it.

Typography can’t hide your dull copy. Textures won’t fix your weak composition. Focus on the epicentre. Be creative in the right things.

@established1987 Amazing. Who’s desk is that? Birthday?

@trowdy Fair article. Imagine if print designers didn’t understand typography or the printing process.

@trowdy @deanfra I’m bringin it back, hipsters.

3:51 PM Jul 13th 2012 in reply to trowdy

@deanfra Today it’s called UX, tomorrow something else. I just design for humans and try not to use the acronym version of User Experience.

2:54 PM Jul 13th 2012 in reply to deanfra

@trowdy @deanfra Sound principles, but ultimately UX is an end result, not a prescription. We need to design well FOR a good user experience

2:43 PM Jul 13th 2012 in reply to trowdy

@deanfra Pretty much. It’s what User Experience stood for historically, but overuse and misuse has misrepresented its real focus (People!)

2:20 PM Jul 13th 2012 in reply to deanfra

@deanfra I know it’s stretching it, but substitute ‘user’ with ‘human’ and the distinctions in design and channels start to fade away.

2:12 PM Jul 13th 2012

@deanfra They are interacting with your store’s staff, brochures, ads or floor plan at a psychological level. In that sense, they are users.

2:06 PM Jul 13th 2012 in reply to deanfra

@deanfra @established1987 Because user experience concerns people, regardless of channel. Designing a phone UX or web UX is not dissimilar.

1:55 PM Jul 13th 2012 in reply to deanfra

@deanfra @established1987 I don’t make that distinction. I am always designing for users, regardless of whether they’re a customer yet.

1:22 PM Jul 13th 2012 in reply to deanfra

Sometimes, the best user experience design is NOT to make a website or iPhone app. Could you design a better store or phone service instead?

@andrewlitvak You’d think there’d be more left handers at a company like Twitter :)

6:11 PM Jul 11th 2012 in reply to andrewlitvak

@robzolkos @andrewlitvak Left handers layout would be ideal. They could also detect slight tap-and-holds to differentiate.

6:10 PM Jul 11th 2012 in reply to robzolkos

@andrewlitvak Why is that poor design? The tap area is different and the end result contextual.

@jymmysim Yep, Nitin’s music sure has that vibe with bit more synth. Love working to his tunes.
