comment Color choice for maximum legibility of text on glass
A better solution is to put a block of solid color behind the text.

comment Colored circles to signify status - a violation of accessibility guidelines?
I can't make heads or tails of that chart. What's it saying?

comment Designer II, Designer III, Senior, Lead, and Principal
Also, FYI, in firms and agencies, "principal" usually refers to part-owner.

comment Designer II, Designer III, Senior, Lead, and Principal
"The terminology varies between orgs" = indeed. There's simply no standard. I don't think there's any way to answer what the differences between those are in any specific way. The only general answer we can give you is "they appear to different nodes in the org chart".

comment What is the difference between a Hi-Fidelity Prototype and a visual design?
@Peter it's an issue (IMHO) when we're talking high-fidelity interactions. The catch is that you can't easily replicate the true interaction inside of Axure given axures limited scripting abilities. For low-fi, not a huge deal. But for hi-fi, I really prefer people not spend too much time in Axure making the interactions.

comment Which way should arrows point for a dropdown button?
I agree. I just don't think it's necessary to show that with an icon change. Does it hurt? Probably not.

comment Which way should arrows point for a dropdown button?
I think this is acceptable, but it could be argued that you close it by selecting the first item--which isn't the case at all. As such, I'd argue that the icon shouldn't change at all. The actual act of using the drop down is enough to communicate what is going on.

comment How to write correctly the term “User experience”?
I've never seen it hyphenated, but sure, why not? :)

comment Any good presentation examples on why minimal + responsive design is a good approach for a website redesign?
I'd like to believe that simple math would convince people. Show how the numbers of people connecting to the internet on mobile devices is growing year after year--not to mention the number of people only accessing the internet on mobile devices. Combine that with the fact that building one responsive web site is cheaper than separate sites for each device. Granted, I've worked for several companies that can't grok that simple math, so YMMV.

comment What is the best way to display nullable bool value as UI component?
This would be better asked over on UX.stackexchange That said, while this is a common pattern in Windows desktop, I don't know if it's necessarily a commonly understood UI pattern. I think context is also going to be very important here (both your audience, and what the items actually are).

comment In order to become a UX professional,should you also know how to design?
It certainly wouldn't hurt, but no, not every UX designer is a graphic designer.

comment How to write a perfect style guide
There is no 'perfect'. The best you can do is to make sure it's a living document, as it will need to be updated and maintained over time.

comment UX/UI Documentation
There is no 'one process'. It's going to really depend on the particulars of the project.

comment Should iOS native app be distinctly different than the responsive website's mobile version?
"The point is not to have an amazing user experience" = but that should be the point...regardless of apple.

comment Should iOS native app be distinctly different than the responsive website's mobile version?
@Yakk mobile and desktop are different contexts, but a responsive web site is one context. If we're talking desktop app vs. mobile app, then yes, you have very valid points. If we're talking a single RWD, then no, those points aren't as valid...also remember that at the core, the benefit of a web site is that it isn't that concerned with the context of the device...as a well designed site responds as needed to accommodate.

And, again, we're talking about responsive web sites. I'm not sure you are. I think you are talking about native software perhaps?

comment Should iOS native app be distinctly different than the responsive website's mobile version?
@yakk 'more' isn't necessarily 'better'. The great thing about RWD and mobile-first design processes is it de-clutters the experience for all users. RWD isn't about 'crippling' the desktop. It's about streamlining the experience for all.

comment Logo Usage: Rule Breaker or Acceptable Practice?
Using their logo in the first place is breaking 'the rules' will you get sued for this type of use? Highly unlikely.

comment Can we use CAPITAL LETTERS to indicate actions?
There's nothing wrong with using small caps in this situation, but it'd merely be an aesthetic decision. Small caps are designed to be used with lowercase letters. In other words, they're meant for the context of being used within a block of text.
