Clubhouse room

Over the past few days, the word clubhouse has been circulating the web… and, no I’m not talking about this clubhouse… I’m talking about this one… that doesn’t even have a website yet… ok I know it’s technically a website, but there’s nothing too useful there yet…

And while some have been trying to figure out how to deal with it and control the damage on their SEO, others have been using this new platform around the clock.

I can’t help it but think about the fact that every now and then, there’s an idea that is born at the…

I’m sure I’m not the only one who started a new job in 2020, but this time for me it was different, not only because it was during the pandemic, but also because it was during the lockdown, I just became a dad and on top of that I also managed to cut my thumb’s ligament a day before I had to start my new role.

Now I’m sure other people also found 2020 challenging, and this article is not about that. …

1. The right fidelity

It might sound trivial, but it’s true. Choosing the right fidelity for your prototype or even screens or ideas to discuss with users or clients is vital for getting the right answers. If you’re trying to figure out whether a certain feature would be useful or on the right place, then maybe a single screen of a wireframe or even a sketch might be enough. If you’re trying to understand if a transition makes sense or if you’re testing out a form, then a higher fidelity might be needed. …

How to organize your design system when you are building an ecosystem of products across multiple verticals.

We’ve all been talking about Design Libraries over the past few years. They’ve became that irreplaceable part of product design which not only keeps things consistent, but reduces the time that teams take to create and build products. And for the most of that time a single library does cut the mustard.

The issue starts when you use the same library for few verticals.

Say you’re designing mostly for mobile, but you do have website too and maybe you have a car infotainment as part of your product offering. …

Often times I look at some animals or plants or even the planet and I wonder, how exactly did nature manage to get things so right. Why are ecosystems so perfectly balanced and why do they work like a Swiss watch? How come birds have eyes on the side of their head so they have a better view of their surroundings so they can manoeuvre better. And how come we humans have undergone so many changes over thousands of years to be what we are today?

Well all of that is called evolution and it’s something that has taken a…

There are tons of articles out there around how much AI will disrupt everything in our lives and how it will change everything and make it better. And mostly I agree with all of them (well maybe except the creepy ads that pop up every now and then). There are other technologies we put a lot of effort in and I don’t think it’s going to lead to anything, but that’s a different story.

What a lot of people don’t realise though is how much effort it takes to make a good model and a good graph neural network. Not…

Let’s face it. CVs can’t clearly show what you can do and what qualities you have as a person. But what they can do is give a clear directions to the reader to the things he’s looking for. And this article is not about telling you just why some CVs are bad. This article is about telling you what I and other fella designers have been looking for when we hire new candidates as well as what can you do to make it more useful. …

As anything with data, results are really relative. Relative in the way you read them. They can also change depending on who’s analysing them. I mean what IS critical and what’s something we can dismiss? If we use machine learning to read these results and surface ideas on how to tackle problems, are they going to be wrong or are they going to improve over time? Are we going to do the right decision, or are we going to look at things from our little bubble point of view. …

Long story short… there’s always a time when you’re working on this massive project and… well you need to think about how these pages will load, how things would transition and inform people about what they’ve done. The questions that you’re asking yourself at this point are a lot, but just to name a few…

  1. How quickly is that going to load?
  2. Is there a DB request that we need to wait for?
  3. What about any other scenarios? Bad connection?
  4. Is this giving me enough information about what’s going on?

Well these are the ones you might start with and…

And how they’ve changed in the past 10 years

This guy also? YES! Sorry but I just can’t stop being amazed how much the web has changed over the last 20+ years. It’s mesmerising to look at websites from the early 2000s and onwards and how the industry has changed over time. So as part of the 10 year challenge I’m also going to be going over 10 popular websites and services I admire and use on a daily basis. Let’s see how they changed in the past 10 years.
