Sign-up and sign-in journeys have been there ever since the transactional eCommerce begin. But, after 20 years, we still tend to get that wrong. Most of the time, these are dictated by the platform of choice or the UX preference. Debates rage on, in the interweb, on whether a decision by an organization is correct, user friendly and complies with… Read More →

In short Atomic Research is the concept of breaking UX knowledge down into its constituent parts: The Atomic Research model — a funnel from data to conclusions, then around again Experiments “We did this…” Facts “…and we found out this…” Insights “…which makes us think this…” Conclusions “…so we’ll do that.” By breaking knowledge down like this allows for some extraordinary possibilities. How It… Read More →

Below are my thoughts about what it meant to make the team and the work successful. As tech companies grow, the creation of their design system can become a powerful and… Read More →

The Problem It drives me crazy that the text bounding box almost always brings in extra space above and below the actual text. Therefore, when the bounding box is used to measure space, it ends up being bigger than you intended. The bigger the line height, the bigger the problem. In the example below, the design was created by measuring… Read More →

We wanted to solve a common problem when working with multiple projects, stakeholders and clients where links to important information including project briefs, project trackers, prototypes, feedback and more, are all in different locations When people need constant access projects and contextual information, the last thing you want to do is keep track of share links and fielding questions like… Read More →

All of this strengthened my… Read More →
