We’ve all interacted with an app walkthrough at some point or another. Heck, some of us designed them.

How to design for mobile devices, when you don’t have one

Once upon a time, about an hour away from where I currently live, worked a web designer who loved his Photoshop comps and fixed-width layouts.

11 websites that perfect UX by focusing on details

Charles Eames said, “The details are not the details. They make the design.” A website is a composite of details—and its content is communicated through them.
