(English) Second-order Affordances: Design & Quantum Superposition

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Britisches Englisch verfügbar.A few years ago, having read a thought-provoking article by Csongor Bartus I wrote about design & quantum superposition. The main idea behind this article, and my interpretation, is that - similar to a particle, which exists in a state of quantum superposition - a design doesn't exist by itself but can only ever be realised in a given context and at a specific moment through observation by a user and possibly ...

(English) Design & Quantum Superposition

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Britisches Englisch verfügbar.Last year, Hungarian designer Csongor Bartus published a thought-provoking article I've only recently come across.

In a nutshell, Atomic Design favours systems of reusable components in lieu of monolithic pages. Now, don't get me wrong. This is nothing utterly new, of course. Style guides and brand guidelines always consisted of reusable and combinable components, fonts and colours. However, in traditional web design up to the mid-aughts designs used to be rather fixed, rigid and monolithic. It wasn't until relatively ... Read more

(English) A Few Notes On Responsive Design

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Britisches Englisch verfügbar.I've been doing quite a bit of work involving responsive web design lately, which is why I thought I'd share a few useful resources I came across. First, there's an article by Luke Wroblewski about the importance of considering mobile devices first for websites and web applications. Ethan Marcotte describes foundations and some techniques of responsive web design. An article by James Young deals with 'the top responsive web design problems and how to avoid them' Brad ...
