comment What is the optimum button size of touch screen applications?
@ScottBiggs Thanks for calling it out. I have removed the initial reference from the question, but put in the original reference so you know that it was originally a valid link but someone else hacked the site (at least that's my guess).

comment Is there more benefit or more complications with UX working with the marketing team in user testing?
I think (and hope) that UX designers are wanting to be more proactive in exploring and experimenting with designs as well to deliver more innovative products and services to the customers/users. After all, if you do user testing and research after you have built a product, it just means that you could have saved some time and resources to do it before building the product. It is also funny to think that organisations wanting to create an environment of teams that don't have goals that align with one another, and how productive that might be in the long term.

comment Building an archive of insights into our users
This is a really good initiative on your part, and I think you can draw a lot of parallel from the user profiling techniques used in segmentation analysis of consumers in marketing research as well. If I can find more details and reference I'll probably throw in an answer for you.

comment The Keikendo Maturity Model for developing an organization's UX capabilities
In the same way that these processes are useful for companies or businesses that want a prescribed or structured way of growing their UX capabilities, I would suggest that these processes are not useful for companies that already have a user-centric approach. In cases where an expert is dropped into an organization that is not ready or mature enough to embrace UX fully, I tend to see the organization fall back to whatever level they start with after the 'expert' leaves, which suggests to me that there is too much reliance on the expert and not enough effort in creating the right culture.

comment Implementing Google Material Design on non-digital products
Is this live somewhere on the Internet? Can you provide a link? It certainly has a Google Material Design look and feel about it. I would like to see the interaction and behaviour as well.

comment Pixel Perfection in Development
@S.Gilbert My answer still holds true in the sense that communication should be a two-way street, and what you provided for them should facilitate discussion and changes for both parties. If they don't want to collaborate then I think they only have themselves to blame for the end result. From a theoretical and technical perspective I don't see why designs can't be translated to implementation in a pixel perfect way.

comment Do users really want responsive dumbed down versions of websites?
I don't see it as a 'dumbed down' version of the website, because this should not necessarily be the goal of designing to cater for different devices and user environments. I think in the context of mobile devices and perhaps people viewing the content on the go, some consideration needs to be given to a different interaction and content strategy that will suit these types of user behaviours

comment What to show while a game is loading?
I think there are a lot of different things you need to consider before coming up with the right approach. For example, how long it would take normally to load, the type of game, the type of users, and whether it takes too much focus off the actual game itself. Worst case the user can just walk away and come back later, so I guess it is not as critical as the actual user experience of the game.
