Since the early 90s I've always had a passion for design. This passion lead to taking up both a Graphic Design and a Front-End Design career path.

Currently I am a Front-End Designer for New York State Health and Human Services Cluster. I also have a BS in Electronic Marketing & Publishing.

My primary interest lay within Responsive Design, SASS, Color and Web Typography, small projects built on these technoligies are viewable via CODEPEN.


Want to see what else i'm up to?

comment How Should Mobile Validation be Designed?
When the form fails and errors are then displayed. I wanted to include if a user skipped an input within the given order, for example if a user skips select industry and clicks region first they are prompted an error but i'm not sure if that can be done or if it would be within best practice.

comment Personas mini focus groups vs one on one interviews
What type of products are the personas for? Will they be used to help create a website or a web application? For example, i've created personas for websites and their basic navigation structure.

Thanks for all your help @Benny Skogberg! I'm going to pitch using the pdf icon vs (open in a new window) text to the client. Now I just need to find examples and i'll be set!

comment Text vs Icon (Opens in a New Window)
This may work however my only concern is while looking through sites last night to see how PDFs were displayed, I couldn't find a single site that used an icon at the mobile level. @Benny are you aware of any sites that at the mobile level display a PDF icon next to the corresponding link?

comment Why not use ellipsis to ask the user?
Adding to what Izhaki said, simply saying "I have a car..." doesn't instruct what action the user needs to take. "Features of my car" is a little closer but still feels like it's lacking. Try "What is the make/model of your car" as it's instructing the user what action to take clearly.

comment Responsive Design with Lengthy Links
That reminds me of a text preview. They work on news sites (syracuse.com/poststandard for example, uses Full Story >>) Do you have any other examples besides news websites using this convention?

What about using a pdf icon with a new window icon? But then you need to ask yourself if the icons could carry the message on their own. I think the pdf icon is understood universally.

comment Responsive Design with Lengthy Links
Yeah that's another issue in itself. I've been looking into solutions but the interaction itself is handled so differently from touch to mouse. If it was just text, tap could be used to display the full word however if it's contained within a link tap will direct to another page.

@JonW: Yeah I looked into <title> as a possible solution but JAWS doesn't even see the element.

comment Best Practice for Responsive Website Header
Thanks for your help @Jonathan Strate! The link you posted on consistency really helped in backing how the site header should be the same color from desktop to mobile. As for the graphic we moved away from using it and opted for a leaf svg and a web font because it'll be easier to maintain and looks so much cleaner than the pixel jpg.

Hey @Racheet! Yeah there is currently two images being used. The image seen in the mobile view is the shaved version of the desktop version.

comment Best Practice for Responsive Website Header
Media Queries were initially used as part of the responsive design. I tried what I could at a a 26.875em size but it's not readable and the text clips. If I reduce the size it's not readable and if I increase the size the image clips.

Yes it's a background image and it sadly does clip when reduced. I've tried to use what scss magic i have but it's not fairing out so well.

comment What is the best way to indicate that a user can perform a value lookup
Ah alright. So your looking to tackle one input or multiple? I ask because it sounds like your trying to tackle multiple inputs.

comment What is the best way to indicate that a user can perform a value lookup
I like @Sildoreth idea however I would add description text maybe inside/outside the search input describing what users can search for. If users are limited to certain key values it would be beneficial to mention.

Are users limited to what they can search?

comment How to motivate users give feedback?
If your discovering that you app has alot of bugs people probably aren't using your app hence why your feedback isn't getting traction.
