So when it comes to designing an app the first thing most designers think if creating a user flow and then just filling in the screens one by one. Although looking at flow is of course the first thing any designer should do the filling in of the blanks much too often happens in the present state of the app. Why present state? Because that’s what is being build right now and design has always struggled with the slower and changing pace of development of an app vs design. Many designs right now are create in one go. If things are missing there are issues, if things are added there are issues.
But there is a way for design to work with and in sync with development. A way where design is a tool, like code, for the direction the app is going in.
Although not a very scientific question it is a very relevant one. Over the past couple of years there has been a drop in how much is being paid per eyeball on an advertisement online. Not because the mass on the internet has become much bigger, no there is not enough return from the advertizements placed. In some cases advertizing online can even have a negative effect when done in the wrong way. What cases these effects? And an even more important question how can we do something about it?
If we try to define quality we will use many different parameters to make it measurable. These parameters differ from subject to subject. This makes it almost impossible to compare quality of a movie versus a book, even if they have the same story. But the medium does not simply allow us to say that one is better than the other, we mostly use our gut feeling to judge this. Although subjectivity is a big part of quality we still want to make it measurable, making it more objective.
We tend to measure quality to very specific parameters that apply to a medium or subject. This does not allow us to compare two different pieces. Even comparing a comedy movie with a action movie becomes really hard. But is there a universal way to measure quality?
I think there is!
it has always been a challenge for web developers and designers to create a website that works on both desktop and mobile. Although the current day mobile devices have left their ancestors way behind them in may ways it is still a fact that the screens are smaller and the input devices are different. How do we solve that issue in one website?
So, for the past few months I have been working backwards! How is that working out? Actually really well!
When building a web-application you’ll need to do some sort of styling to get it looking a kind of decent. To enhance your web app you would probably like to do some more advanced styling with lots of css, images and other stuff… But what if you needed a styling system that dynamically changes the colors of your style?
I’ve designed and implemented an application that uses Sass to created dynamically colored styling for such a system!
