Seriously, though. What is a progressive web app? – Amberley Romo – Medium
“Progressive web app” (PWA) is both a general term for a new philosophy toward building websites and a specific term with an established set of three explicit, testable, baseline requirements.
As a general term, the PWA approach is characterized by striving to satisfy the following set of attributes:
Connectivity independent
As a specific term, websites can be tested against the following three baseline criteria to qualify as a PWA:
It must run under HTTPS.
It must include a Web App Manifest.
It must implement a service worker.

Reality Types - When Graphic Designers Create Augmented Reality
This UK-based design firm shows off their augmented typography prototype on their Instagram posts—including one featuring rows of type lined up perfectly behind cars in a parking lot.
The fairly new collaboration between Benjamin Chan and Malone Chen boasts some impressive AR typography work. Considering the two are currently graphic design students at London’s Central Saint Martins, their focus on typography AR is a hint at what’s to come.

Perhaps the most stunning use of Gerard Mallandrich’s typography AR concept is a video taken of swirling font projected on the floor of a Barcelona train station. Or perhaps it’s his metallic lettering that seems to somehow reflect the environment around it. Or it’s him seeming to move letters with a Star Wars like telekinetic ability. We’re stumped. You decide.

Head to this Brooklyn design studio’s Instagram to see their research in action. DIA focuses on “design and typographic kinesis,” a manifesto made for AR. You can see its brilliance in a video of text resting on top of a dog’s head that moves every time Fido moves.

Artist, researcher, and hacker Zach Lieberman created openFrameworks, a toolkit for designers who are looking to meld coding and graphic design. He used that toolkit to create Weird Type, an app that’s currently available for $.99 and #27 on the Entertainment list in the App Store. It allows users to choose typography and animation styles to place in the world around them.

The next time you see an Instagram video of words crawling up the side of a building, you can thank Pokemon Go. In late 2017, with the massive success of the creature-catching game fresh in their minds, both Google and Apple released tools for app developers (ARCore for Android and ARKit for iOS), that allowed them to take full advantage of built-in AR capabilities. What sprang forth were commercial applications (of course), but also some beautiful, surreal pieces from the graphic design world. Bold fonts that swirl around burst forth from sewer grates or swirl around in midair. Designers who flourish in this space between art and technology (like openFrameworks’ Zach Lieberman) are building apps and experimenting with placing kinetic text in the real world. The results are trippy and fluid and just plain cool. We’ve collected a few of our favorites.

A lot of people contributed to the product — designers, product managers, researchers, and countless engineers (across Android, iOS, Web, and the server) to name just some of the major roles. My responsibility was the web UI, and more specifically the photo grid.

Oder Du besuchst eine Ausstellung, in der nur Prototypen und Objekte ausgestellt sind, die es niemals zu kaufen geben wird. Warum sollte man Dinge konzipieren, die niemals genutzt werden? Das klingt schräg. Ist es auch! Heute geht es um das Thema Design Fiction. Nein, nicht Design Thinking, sondern Design Fiction. Diesen relativ neuen Diskurs-Ansatz möchte ich heute vorstellen.

How to Find the Font That Has the Glyph You Need - InDesignSecrets.com : InDesignSecrets
The fonts we use today contain a huge array of Unicode characters. So how do we find the fonts that contain the particular character we want? Sadly, we cannot use InDesign’s Glyphs panel. This panel has many great features, including the ability to create glyph sets for the characters we use frequently. But it contains no search capability, and no way to find a particular glyph across different installed fonts.
There is a great utility which meets this need, but it’s for Mac only. It’s installed on all recent versions of Mac OS X, but it’s not turned on by default, so many Mac users may not even know that it exists. The utility is called the Character Viewer, and this is a brief introduction to its powers. (A free Windows utility called BabelMap is mentioned at the end of this post.)

Druckersprache – Wikipedia
Druckersprache ist die Bezeichnung für eine Fachsprache, die in der polygraphischen Industrie, insbesondere in der Drucktechnik, entstanden ist. Dabei ist der Begriff Drucker hierfür aus dem „druckenden“ Handwerk entstanden. Erst mit der Herausbildung der Massenproduktion fand eine Differenzierung der Berufsgruppen statt.

Die Bezeichnung Setzersprache wird gelegentlich für jene Begriffe verwendet, die sich nicht auf den eigentlichen Druckvorgang beziehen, sondern auf den vorigen Arbeitsschritt, den Satz. So wehren sich Drucker dagegen, dass Rechtschreibfehler als „Druckfehler“ bezeichnet werden. Sie verwenden stattdessen den Begriff „Satzfehler“, wenn ein Rechtschreibfehler vom Setzer verursacht wurde.

Formally Specifying UIs • Hillel Wayne
Good UI is necessary to making correct software. If people have trouble using the product, they’re more likely to do the wrong thing. Personally, though, I can’t stand UI work. I don’t think it’s “beneath me” or anything, it just doesn’t quite mesh with my brain. Visuals and interfaces give me anxiety. Mad respect for the people who can handle it.

I love formal methods. Recently my friend Kevin Lynagh released Sketch.systems, a new tool to bring formal specification to UI designers.1 Can my love of formal methods beat my fear of UI? Let’s find out.

9 weeks ago
Some of the components I've explored here have specific standardized requirements in order to work as expected. Tab interfaces, for example, have a prescribed structure and a set of interaction behaviors as mandated by the WAI-ARIA specification.
It's at your discretion how closely you follow these requirements. Research may show that your audience doesn't do well with a tab interface precisely as recommended. Nonetheless, those requirements are there.
Other components, like the ubiquitous but multivarious card, do not have a standard to follow. There's no <card> element, nor an "ARIA card" design pattern. These are some of the more interesting components to work on. Each potential barrier to inclusion needs to be identified and addressed in turn.
These barriers differ in line with the card's purpose and content. Some cards are just illustrated introductions to permalinks like blog posts; others are more autonomous and offer a lot of functionality. In this article, I'll be looking into a few permutations of a simple card component, emphasizing a balance between sound HTML structure and ergonomic interaction.

Designing A Perfect Responsive Configurator — Smashing Magazine
Here’s a little challenge for you. How would you design a responsive interface for a custom car configurator? The customer should be able to adjust colors, wheels, exterior details, interior details and perhaps accessories — on small and large screens. Doesn’t sound that difficult, does it? We have all seen such interfaces before. Essentially, they are just a combination of some navigation, iconography, buttons, accordions and a real-time 3D preview. But how often are they actually engaging and helpful? And how often do they feel like a series of tedious steps in a never-ending wizard UI?

Having an understanding how your brain works will help you become a wiser designer; master manipulator of Visual Communication. It can help you determine which visual elements are most effective in any given situation, so you can use them to influence perception, direct attention and cause behavioural change. Something particularly useful when it comes to goal-oriented, problem-solving, intuitive design; User Interface design.

The biggest WTF in design right now – UX Collective
My life-long goal is to spread the word about user flows… Nah, not really, but I do care deeply about technology and the way we communicate how it works.
I like to think about what tools and methods we use to get our ideas across among other designers.
I also like think about how we communicate with people outside of our professions, away from the comfort of our jargon and familiar tools. This is why I care about user flows and I guess because I’m building this.
In this article we’ll go through the big WTF in design: “What’s the flow!”. Answering what user flows are, the fundamentals of user flows, and then we’ll finish with a few examples.
