Paddi MacDonnell wrote an interesting article on the hamburger menu and related mobile-first approaches to design a few days ago: It outlines some of the problems of hamburger menus, and concludes with the observation that the device is something of a way to brush the navigation of a complex app under the carpet of the hamburger icon (my carpet analogy, not ...

Every example you gave would work. One might work better within your design than the other. Your users won't really care about the way the search input pops up. The best search fields are bug free are easy in use give relevant results help users find what they are looking for (auto fill or alternatives) So I would focus more on functionality and less on ...

Let me provide you with insight of Multichannel as its just an antonym to the Cross-Channel term. Multi-channel is a way of delivering services that allows users / customers to interact with the system through a number of different channels and enables successful completion of tasks through any number of these in complete and discrete fashion. The typical ...

Considering the first part of the question, Mobile First Approach is not a constraint. It's an opportunity for designers to determine the MOST CRITICAL use case of a product. As we get only a limited real-estate to work on, we need to prioritise the use cases. Second, you need to convince your client that It's not users who have to conform to their ...

I believe you've already answered, partly, your own question. Looking into web analytics we can see patterns of actions that stick together and which features are used the most. That said it's important to ensure that options that may not be as popular can still be serviced to users who may require them. Taking an existing web application and ...

Content First One of the biggest things to consider is what can stay and what can be removed or adjusted, at each breakpoint. Smashing Magazine was the first to take the approach of leaving behind (fully hiding) some ads when it doesn't fit into the breakpoint. With the mobile first strategy, Content is King. Most ads are sold on a Cost-Per-Click or ...

When referring to responsive web projects, I assume that it is in reference to designing for different channels of access for the user. This could be in terms of the device and viewport that the designer needs to cater for. When referring to cross-channel web projects, I take this to mean either one of two things: Projects that involve adaptive or ...

As others have said the differences are small, but there are a few details to make sure you get right: If any content is covered (options 2 and 3), there needs to be a clear, simple way to get rid of the covering, for if someone hit the search icon by mistake or changed their mind for any reason. This might be a point in favour of options 1 or 2: with 2, ...

Put usability and accessibility concerns ahead of making the site paralax is the simple tenet that I would advise you follow in order to acheive your goal. Remember that content comes first, that users need to acheive goals easily. Work on good, accessible navigation and keep content clear and easy to find. Remember users browse on different devices and use ...

The interaction and location of the search icon depends completely on the context it is being used. Is it used to search for an item, in case of e-commerce site or is it used to search something within a site(professional/company site? The intent will give you an answer. If search is really critical to my task flow for an objective, then probably I will ...

Did you intent to post a picture of the actual timeline? Because it is not there :) In terms of the filtering, I read the filter applied above as: "Find events from september 2015 that fall on the dates 2nd, 18th OR 19th." Seems like a weird way to filter a timeline. Fine if I want to get a timeline of what I'm doing on the 3rd of january, march and june ...

Rather than spend a huge amount of effort making a extremely large site responsive, more likely they've spent the money/time on developing a native app for iOS and android. There's a lot of good reasons for this: Apps have a lot more capabilities on mobile and tablet compared with HTML. Your can gather more information about your user from an app. (allow ...
