This book shows you how art direction will: Design Principles — Solid principles are the foundation for any well-functioning system. Shared Language — This chapter describes how to establish a shared language, which allows a group of people to create and use patterns cohesively for a particular product.
Parameters of Your System — This chapter introduces some of the qualities a design system can have, and the ways in which risks and downsides can be managed.
Systemizing Perceptual Patterns — The exercise in this chapter describes how to conduct an inventory of styles, define perceptual patterns, and integrate them into the system. Smashing Book 6: Written by Heydon Pickering and reviewed by Steve Faulkner. This Is For Everyone — Though we shall encounter visual design challenges, deal with performance issues, and adopt progressive enhancement — all of which are accessibility concerns — the underlying theme of this book is about making the interactivity of web applications include keyboard and screen reader users.
The WAI Forward — Even when we branched out to do something a little more radical with CSS transitions, we made sure our technique was a progressive enhancement, built on robust foundations. This way, older browsers and other technologies still had something to fall back on. Getting Around — The structure of webpages which many people consume visually, set to a grid, is no structure at all to those who are not looking.
Introduction — We will look at an interactive element, a button, from the perspective of three types of designers. The purpose of this example is to show you how a little bit of knowledge about the medium can lead to a simpler and therefore more inclusive solution. The Document — We will look into discrete interface patterns; modules, components, widgets, conventions, whatever-you-want-to-call-thems. It would be foolhardy not to first acknowledge that each will ultimately belong to a web document.
HTML pages vary dramatically in shape and size and can include any combination of patterns, but there are a handful of 'document level' best practices to which we should adhere.
The aim here is not to go in search of the ultimate 'boilerplate' but to configure a parent web page to support inclusive design. A Paragraph — We'll be looking at typefaces, leading, measure, justification, contrast, focus indication and more, to help you design paragraphs suited for a hugely diverse audience. We'll also tackle specific issues for folks with limited vision, dyslexia, Irlen syndrome, low literacy and limited technical knowledge.
A Blog Post — We'll show how to incorporate accessible landmarks and a sound section structure to make the content more navigable and interoperable to a diversity of users and parsers. This will be bolstered by giving well-written and context independent structural as well asand context independent structural and navigational cues.
A Menu Button — In this chapter, we'll ensure our menu button and the content it reveals are inclusive of differing user settings, circumstances, devices, and assistive technology software. Inclusive Prototyping — By going straight from paper to HTML, we lay the foundations for efficient code and inclusive experiences.
A List Of Products — In this chapter, we'll practice our inclusive design chops. As in previous patterns, the organization and structure of content is paramount. We'll look deeply into image accessibility, from both the perspectives of alternative text composition and performance. In catering to blind consumers, to those who cannot afford generous data contracts, and anyone accessing your content from outside your interface, this is a chance to really push the limits of inclusive design.
A Filter Widget — We'll explore the importance of giving users choice and control over how their content is arranged. We'll also use some techniques to make sure our design was tolerant of dynamic and fluctuating content.
Inclusive design also means a visual design which is not too strict about the nature of the content imparted to it. A Registration Form — This chapter will give you everything you need to develop inclusive forms. By using standard form elements, effective labeling and facilitating the correction of errors, users of all walks are able to access and contribute to your websites and apps. By keeping the form simple and avoiding irritating experiences like disappearing labels and passwords that you cannot check, we've made sure using the form isn't just possible but pleasurable.
Test-driven Markup — Test-driven development allows developers working with frequent iterations to move forward with confidence. By writing tests first, to prescribe outcomes, then creating the functionality to achieve them, you can ensure successful builds behave in a predictable and reliable fashion. Making It Right: What The Hell Is Hardboiled? Embrace the possible, instead of complaining about limitations.
Learn about the basics of how a page should work in first place, not necessarily how a design should look. Get away from limiting your creativity to the capabilities of a lowest common denominator browser. Learn about ten CSS modules that are most relevant to the work we do, its vendor-specific prefixes, and how to manage them with your favorite tools effectively. Embrace that not all browsers should render websites in the same way and focus on providing the most appropriate experience for the capabilities of a browser or device.
All that without anyone being left unable to access content or features. Learn how to present the atmosphere of a design while designing components separate from layout with Style Guides. Learn how to use type proofs for presentation, how to balance them the right way and how to make them legible and readable on many different screens.
Responsive Typography — Much of the web content we consume every day consists of the written word. Learn about the different web font formats and how to implement them properly, with fallback fonts and website performance in mind.
Borders — CSS borders can be exciting because they include properties that open up a wealth of creative opportunities. Gradients — Flat design aesthetic has become the norm. Almost every site you see these days include large, flat areas of colour, often laid out across horizontal bands, almost always the full width of our screens, with flat or outlined buttons, and icon graphics that are also flat.
Background Blends And Filters — The rapidly increasing pace of change is a good thing for designers and developers, businesses and brands, and the internet in general. Transforms — CSS layouts can sometimes be a little strait-laced.
Transitions — In web pages and applications, changes in state can have a huge impact on how it feels to use an interface. Make a change too fast and an interaction can feel unnatural. Make it too slow, even by a few milliseconds, and an interface will feel sluggish. Multi-column Layout — You might be surprised how unimaginative most website layouts are today, particularly since the responsive web design came up. The different ways that magazine designers use columns of text to make their publications individual are an enormous inspiration.
Converting Images To WebP — This can be done in a myriad of ways, from something as simple as exporting from your preferred design program, by using Cloudinary and similar services, and even in Node.
In Closing — WebP does offer potential benefits to a large portion of internet users. In my experience, WebP has substantially improved loading performance for many of my clients, and continues to be a tool I reach for when I want to make pages as lean as possible. A Checkout Form — The one thing per page design pattern is a cornerstone of creating well-designed forms.
As such, this comes with its own set of challenges and patterns, including a responsive ARIA-described action menu, multiple selection, and same-page messaging. Together, they can make search discoverable, simple, and useful.
A Filter Form — Users often need to filter a large set of unwieldy search results. Without a well-designed filter, users are bound to give up. Filters pose a number of interesting and unique design problems that may force us to challenge best practice to give users a better experience. Reset affiliate password. Smashing Media AG.
