#UI #uidesign observation: while @ChrisHallbeck is funny, and he is certainly trying to do the right thing with the "Swipe for More" indications...
The "swipe <direction>" UI still defies easy explanation... 1/11
The same can be said for the std IG blue/gray dots under the picture... 2/11
By all this I mean, imagine the view presented is modeled as a camera looking down at a sheet of paper. 3/11

NEW THREAD: The impact of #COVID19 on #smallbiz has been catastrophic. According to 2 new analyses from @SHamiltonian and @HamiltonProj:
From mid-March to mid-May 2020, > 40% of all small businesses closed, causing revenues to drop 40% on average #COVIDEconomy
By mid-July, more than 420,000 small businesses had permanently closed—equivalent to the # of failures typically seen over a whole year. #COVIDEconomy #SmallBiz

New @CAPolicyLab Report:

Me, @TillvonWachter, @alexbellecon & Geoff Schnorr take a deep dive into the recent #UI claims data to shed some light on what’s actually happening in CA’s labor market.

capolicylab.org/publications/s…
Thread --> (1/13)
In late August, initial claims for PUA skyrocketed, while EDD expressed concerns of a surge in fraudulent PUA claims. There was also a slight increase in initial claims for regular UI.

BUT...

Prior to this, CA saw 5 consecutive weeks of a decrease in new initial claims. (2)
Coinciding with this surge in initial PUA claims was a change in the demographic profile of PUA claimants- Recent claimants are more likely to be male, white, and self-employed than earlier PUA claimants - whether or not this is driven by fraudulent claims isn’t totally clear (3)

Good microcopy is one of the fastest ways to improve an interface.

Try doing an audit on your UI with these tips to see how it stands up. 👇 Image
1) Use personal pronouns

Address the reader instead of just talking out loud. Use the word you. People pay more attention when you talk directly to them. Image
2) Start with a verb

Names for interactive elements should begin with an action verb. The same goes for important copy. Starting with a verb is more direct and engaging. Image

Hello @trainline_fr. Comme votre nouvelle beta plante quand on veut faire des retours, je vais les faire ici.
En une phrase : j’ai envie de pleurer. Vous avez repris le seul défaut d’#UI actuel (la non-sélection de destination à l’autocomplétion)… et tous ceux du site OUISNCF 😢
Le sélecteur de date et heure était le meilleur que j’aie rencontré pour ce type d’action. Des plages de 2h, c’est amplement suffisant pour la fréquence des trains.
Remettre une pop-up avec des menus déroulants… Je passe de 3 clics à 7 pour choisir date et heure 😭
#UXdesign AvantAprès
Dans les résultats de recherche : qu’est-ce qui est mis en avant ? Les conditions d'échange et remboursement. L’horaire, le déroulé global du trajet, le type de train, le temps de correspondance ? Allons, qui regarde ça pour choisir un trajet de train !

It has been an unusual day today as I have reflected on 13 years of flying the #Boeing747 for #BritishAirways with a few people. I woudl ask for your indulgence as I take a short walk down memory lane from Boeing 747 No 1 to Air Force 1. #BA747 #BritishAirways747. >>>> Image
It all started in 1969 when Joe Sutter an engineer working for #Boeing launched the first #Boeing747 from Boeing Field in #Seattle. The aircraft was the first widebody airliner & over 50 years later it is still be flying. Join me visiting No1 here 👉🏻 Image
This year has seen @BoeingAirplanes announce the end of the line for the #Boeing747 as they will stop manufacturing the freighter version soon. The venerable aircraft hasn’t changed much since 1969 but it will be around for many years to come. Read here 👇🏻 theavgeeks.com/2019/02/09/rep…

Missed out on the last one, so for this year’s #GAAD I wanted to highlight colourblindness and how to better tailor game UI for it with a couple of tips, tricks and examples #gamedev #ui

Thread (1/4)
When displaying two opposing teams and only colours can be used to tell them apart, aim for ones that sit opposite one another on the colour spectrum. Orange and blue being the two most distinguishable options when accommodating for the most common colourblindness types.

(2/4)
When working with a variety of different colour states for similar elements it’s worth considering using icons and/or patterns as a way of indicating what each state mean.

Can have the added effect of strengthen the intent for non-colourblind users too; win-win.

THERE is a hidden crisis occurring in NY State

1000s of NYers have had ZERO income over a month, w NO relief in sight.
#NewYork is intentionally withholding #PUA #Unemployment payments from NYers for over one month.

**A Thread** 1/
These R the people 2 tag in EVERY post u make regarding unemployment, tag these people in the post. Flood their comments section on every social media platform
@NYGovCuomo @melissadderosa @RichAzzopardi @GarethRhodes @LindaLacewell @byHeatherLong @PeterAlexander
It is beyond unacceptable that NYers have gone 6+ weeks without income or assistance, but the leadership in #NewYork paid $60+ million to an unknown person from twitter for '#ventilators', without any question.

That was OUR money they wasted!

Hello tweeps!

In this #Thread, I'll be explaining step-by-step process of designing the below #UI #Mockup (by @frontendmentor) with only #html & #css.

You can follow along by typing out the #codes in the images.

#100DaysOfCode #CodeNewbie
#WomenWhoCode #freeCodeCamp

1/25 ImageImage
2/25

We'll learn how to look at mockups so we can do the following:

1. Deduce #html tags to #code the #webpage
2. Declare #css properties to style the webpage
3. Establish #breakpoints to make the webpage #responsive.
.
.

First, let's set up our html page.

#webdev
3/25

As shown below, we started with the following:

1. Create an #html document.
2. Specify the title.
3. Set the width.

The width is set to equal the viewport width. This means that it'll be as wide as the screen viewing the page - first step to #responsive #designs! Image

Some thoughts on economic disaster relief - aka fiscal stimulus (things are fluid, and I'm open to refinements!). First, we should aim for $1trn, or 5% of GDP, which is on the high end of estimates. Better to overreact now, both on this and public health mitigation measures.
1) We should send #ChecksChecksChecks to every person (including kids!) - $2000 is a rough estimate - could be $1000 per month during the national shutdown - this is about $600bn
We could have these be taxable a year later for those above a certain income level to make it more progressive, although the @gop may not go for that

🚀 Jump on in and enjoy this forever growing, and regularly updated Thread of bite-sized, and easy to put into practice, UI & UX Design MicroTips by @mrcndrw #ui #ux #uxdesign #design #webdesign Pls RT
💡Use Multiple Drop Shadows, or a very subtle border (just a shade darker than your actual shadow) around certain elements to make those elements appear a little sharper, more defined, and help avoid those muddy shadows.
💡It’s absolutely fine to just opt for the 1 Typeface when creating your artwork. Ignore the ‘Always use 2 Typefaces. Minimum.’ crowd. Using a combination of Weights, Sizes, and Colour you can still produce perfectly acceptable results.

@nathanshedroff @daveixd @bkenna1 @impactology I mostly concur. The silo’ing we see in many organizations is bad.

But you didn’t say that silo’ing of related design disciplines is bad. You said there are no meaningful disciplinary distinctions:

“There is no difference between #UI, #UX, #IXD, etc. They are the same thing.”
@nathanshedroff @daveixd @bkenna1 @impactology Unlike @nathanshedroff, I do not see anyone advocating for silo’ing. But I do see people advocating for being dismissive of distinctions between different classes of design problems and the disciplines devoted to addressing them with appropriate methods.
@nathanshedroff @daveixd @bkenna1 @impactology My memory of the late ’90s is not UXD generalists who had been solving digital design problems well for years facing upstart territorial specialists with a lack of holistic awareness. My memory is the opposite.

This description of the sorry state of the ways we understand #UX is very, very good.

And I have some quibbles with its telling of history which I hope folks will find useful in the discussion already brewing around this piece.

medium.com/spotless-says/…

1/
I have an old telling of the history of #UX design which takes a different slice through things and focuses on the way that it bound together different tribes of practice in an overlapping space of work

boxesandarrows.com/this-thing-tha…

2/
An important thing which I see present but unspoken in Max Taylor’s telling of #UX is WHY the term emerged when user experience has been a question in products and services since long before the expression “user experience” was coined

(Psst! It’s the SOFTWARE!)

what's the rapey noise study™, you ask? great question!

it's a (not good) study about interacting with a computer using your brain by focusing on a noise while other noises are playing.... [look ma, no hands!...]

A fantastic thread on specific examples of breeding applicable interdisciplinarity.

In fact, I think we can go further, and designers can help.
There's a trend here.

In a lot of different environments, designers are realizing there's useful and powerful theories, insights, and communities from disciplines they never considered; and there happens to be a reactionary clash from the communities who live in that space.
We have an opportunity here.

Sometimes that clash is valuable, because it offers space for people to acknowledge, voice, and catalyze a community to make their knowledge known.

But sometimes, we can connect without friction, and towards a collective goal.

I'm a few years behind the curve; y'all still do follow trains?

Well, I'm starting one. Let's do one about #equitydesign.

@albanvillamil asked if I knew people, places, and tools for equity and design, and I wanted everyone to know everyone.

Spread the word! (1/million)
That being said, like equity work, this isn't (and arguably can't be) the definitive

Equity is a verb, like @_ChristineOrtiz says, so my hope is this is only the beginning.
I tried to get everyone's resources and descriptions correctly, but if there's anything wrong, feel free to correct me! (Crit's in our blood, right?)

Feel free to add, amend, include, and let's get to know each other. Cool? Cool.

THREAD: Usability insights requested from those who like word games and puzzles ! Please follow along with me for a bit of exposition, then provide your input! (1/17) #Puzzles #WordGames #UI #UX
(2/17) Imagine you're using a new tool to search for solutions to word puzzles. One thing this tool lets you do is discover pairs of words in which two consecutive letters anywhere within one word are reversed in other words.
(3/17) For example, "dairy" & "diary", "united" & "untied", "geocentric" & "egocentric", and "unclear" & "nuclear" share this property.
