The role of taste, Optical adjustments, Design system breakdown: Select, Onboarding tutorials vs. Contextual help
The role of taste (and what it means) - There was a reason artists like LL Cool J were sending demo tapes to Rick Rubin's dorm room at NYU to get it in front of him. His taste was respected and trend-setting. -
Formulas for optical adjustments - A long-standing trope of the design world is that computers are bad at aligning and balancing the relative scales of elements. This is incorrect. -
Design system breakdown: Select - Our audit uncovered many types of inputs used for selecting options including: forms, table sorting, filters, multi-selects, country selections, searchable selects, and more. -
Onboarding tutorials vs. Contextual help - Tutorials interrupt users, don't necessarily improve task performance, and are quickly forgotten. Contextual help signals can avoid these pitfalls but require unintrusive ways to activate. -
