comment Should I code my own numeric keyboard? It's bad UX?
Look at a phone then look at a calculator. There is no standard numeric keypad layout. :)

There's a broader question...why have an on-screen keyboard of your own making at all? What's the problem you are trying to solve here?

comment What is a wireframe deck?
Yes, ditto what Michael said. The eye-rolling term is used all the time in corporate America. :)

comment What is the proper balance between clean and ethical design?
I don't know what legal requirements you have to work around.

comment What is the proper balance between clean and ethical design?
Sounds like your lawyer needs that...no so much your customers. :) That said, business and legal requirements are something one needs to handle. There's really no way to answer what the 'proper' balance will be as it will vary from one situation to the next.

comment What is the proper balance between clean and ethical design?
Not sure 'ethical' is the right term here. Are you implying that if you don't show certain content you are misleading the user somehow? At the core of your question, you're really asking about the user experience. You need to figure out what content your users need/want. That is what you should base your design decisions on.

comment What to avoid when adding the slogan/value proposition to the logo to reinforce branding?
They're definitely related but I don't see much UX value in a corporate slogan. It really is a marketing thing.

I don't think it's a UX issue. It's a brand identity issue, which is the purview of marketing and graphic design most of the time.

I think this depends entirely on the slogan and how it was designed from a visual branding standpoint in the first place.

comment Are multiple navigation menus really better?
Note that the 7/2 rule has nothing to do with menus: uxmyths.com/post/931925744/… as for the questions, context is everything. We can't say 2 menus is better than one without the context of the site itself. It's always going to depend.

comment Is there any place to get browser and version usage by industry?
@LukeBearl that's not quite what I meant. I meant that a hospital may be using IE7 only because they still have to support some crappy other software. That doesn't preclude them from allowing the latest Chrome, though...it's just since their enterprise software doesn't use it, they may not report much Chrome use. But your software could still certainly be used on Chrome. For example, our company would report 90% of our traffic from IE10 due to crappy enterprise software...but we can all use Chrome as well.

comment Is there any place to get browser and version usage by industry?
Note that enterprises still supporting old browsers tend to do so because they have old enterprise software that only supported said old browsers. So it's not so much what they use now that is of concern but what they could use now if their enterprise software supported it in the first place.

comment Is my gender selection sexist?
"I wanted to go with something a bit more unique." = I'd start with that. What value does making this 'unique' add? Unique for the sake of being unique isn't always a good thing...in fact, it often is a bad thing.

comment Would putting a pricing page on our website more likely improve the user experience if our competitors only offer ‘contact for quote’ pages?
Showing customers what something costs would usually be argued as a good user experience and encourage sales. That said, maybe your product is priced ridiculously high and would deter sales. Really hard to say without knowing all the details.

comment Small Caps Headings: Accessible or not?
Note that text-transform: uppercase is not the same as small-caps. What you are looking for is font-variant: small-caps; which will load the actual small-caps of the font in use (provided said font has a set of small-caps)

comment Research behind current design patterns?
this is simply too broad of a question. And I doubt any research could find anything conclusive on such a broad design trend. It's mostly just popular is all.

comment Is anti-aliasing still relevant in a high resolution display?
@DA01 what that 'point' is is probably a matter of opinion and age (how good are one's eyes) :) But I'd say the iPhone 6 is pretty damn close...as are newer eink screens like the Paperwhite

You are correct in that as pixels get smaller, the need for Anti-aliasing decreases. In theory, there's a point where it becomes irrelevant.

Not sure I understand the connection between PPD and 'pixels moving'. Yes, one would see pixels moving on high PPI devices, but not sure that correlated to anti-aliasing, does it?
