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 Multiple vs single field capture for phone number form input
+1 @Izkata I like the way you think.

comment Is it appropriate or wise to merge two similar search inputs together?
It sounds like your creating extra work when it's not needed. From a user stand point it seems daunting to have an extra element that preforms the same task. I'd motion towards using one element.

Actually... how would you include an extension inside a single input? I've only seen a separate input used for extensions. Can anyone provide a pattern/article displaying a single input including the extension?

@Izkata: I should of included an ext. input but you're right example 2 wouldn't work well for them.

The related topics are insightful and really eye-opening to the various types of phone formats. Kind of makes example 2 not look like a good choice IF you are supporting internal numbers. However it it's based say in the United States it could work. I guess it depends on the audience the form is for in the end.

I had thought about using a mask but there are issues dealing with screen readers that can be seen in this video. docs.google.com/file/d/0B9rGmqNcHo-mRGpMS0xQbzVzeGM/edit it's not pretty...

@Crissov you misread my reply. "of course it didn't help there was no error message instructing her not to use them" It wasn't my mothers fault...I know that. There was no error message telling her otherwise as stated.

Just curious is there a way you can detect a number format by location within your browser? I know on mobile devices as you type the number it formats automatically but never seen it on the desktop level.

I sadly have fallen victim to typing in the 1 when dialing a phone number (force of habit). Overall i've seen various ways people input phone numbers from using the 1 to dialing the seven numbers. I've actually watched my mother (not technical savvy in any shape or form) type in the () around the area code which made the form she was inputing data fail of course it didn't help there was no error message instructing her not to use them, lol.

comment Are distraction-free text editors effective?
Right on @mrcharlie sublimetext.com FTW! Back in my younger years I used to code with Dreamweaver and it was a nightmare trying to navigate the GUI.

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.

comment Text vs Icon (Opens in a New Window)
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?

comment Text vs Icon (Opens in a New Window)
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.
