Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 24/12/2015 pm31 17:11:00

Mobile is today’s first screen. So design responsively, focusing on content and structure first. Websites and apps alike should remove distractions and let people interact as directly as possible with content. 90 percent of design is typography. And the other 90 percent is whitespace. Boost usability and increase pleasure with progressive disclosure: menus & functions that appear only when needed. The post The Year in Design appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design.

Web Law & Disorder

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 22/12/2015 pm31 16:01:00

LEGISLATING THE WEB has long been murky ground. When glacial processes, uninformed committees, and international politics meet the individualized culture of the internet, friction ensues. Despite the resulting confusion, it’s our duty to work within the law—and to speak up for a better relationship between governing bodies and web professionals. In the current A List Apart, Heather Burns guides us through the current dilemmas in digital law, and offers a solution: professionalizing our industry to ensure a seat at the table.

Ad Blocking Phase II

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 19/12/2015 pm31 20:13:00

The world has finally caught up with Been, Inc. Three years ago, this tiny start-up company shared my studio space in New York. Their product idea was remarkably original: instead of passively accepting the data collection and loss of privacy that comes with most ad networks on the web, what if people had a choice—to either block ads and third-party trackers entirely, or earn rewards for letting ads through? The web wasn’t ready then. It is now. The post Ad Blocking Phase II appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design. Read the article

Hamster Dance of Death

Jeffrey Zeldman By Jeffrey Zeldman on 16/12/2015 pm31 18:07:00

It soon became obvious that the hamster had somehow crawled into the family couch. When little incisions under the cushions failed to reveal the missing rodent, I painstakingly destroyed the entire seating area in hopes of finding him. Insider tip: when destroying a couch from ABC Carpet & Warehouse, a scissor works better than a kitchen knife. The post Hamster Dance of Death appeared first on Zeldman on Web & Interaction Design.
