Why usability testing should be part of your design process

Here’s a scenario. We’ve been working with your company for a few months. We’ve spent time discussing your place in the market, user objectives, and business goals. Gathering this information helped us make informed decisions about your product. We’ve spent endless hours together discussing, wireframing, designing and developing your product. Every day we have been living and breathing this amazing new “thing”. You’re pumped. We’re pumped. We’re all riding the high and certain that we’re steering things in the right direction. Or are we?

Typography of the Month for December 2014

Welcome to the first installment of Typography of the Month, also known as TOTM. One of the first things we do when starting a web design project is set the typographic tone for the site. As such, we’re always on the look out for beautiful, unique, and expressive type. Since we can’t use them all, we thought we’d share our findings in hopes that you’ll be able to use them in an upcoming project. Without further a do, here are our favorite typefaces for the month of December.

“The client is just as afraid as you are. They’ve fought for the budget to hire you. Their job is on the line. And their business might go under if this project goes badly. So have some empathy for them. And never miss an opportunity to show them that they’re in good hands with you. Be confident in what you’re doing. Take charge. Behave like the expert they hired.”

Two weeks with the iPhone 6 Plus

I’ve been using my new iPhone 6 Plus for about two weeks now. I’ve had a lot of people asking me about it, so I figured I’d write out a review. I previously had an iPhone 5, and other than cracking my screen about two months before the new release, I loved it. The battery life left a little bit to be desired, but I always feel that way about a device at the end of a two year contract cycle and after several new OS versions. When the new phones were announced the big question was, do I go for the iPhone 6 or the 6 Plus?

Homemade Trader Vic’s Mai Tai

A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of heading down to Trader Vic’s for an Atlanta Dribbble meetup sponsored by our pals at MailChimp. We enjoyed a world-famous Mai Tai (or three) and thought it would be a good time to share my homemade, Trader Vic’s Mai Tai recipe with you thirsty folks.

Although there is some controversy around the origin of this well-known cocktail, Trader Vic Bergeron is cited as inventing what we now know and love as the Mai Tai. The story goes that on a lazy afternoon in 1944, Vic was at his bar entertaining a few friends from Tahiti. He was whipping up drink after drink and stumbled upon something special. Upon serving the first of many delightful concoctions to his guests, one of them took a taste of the newly created beverage and exclaimed, “Maita’i roa ae!”—meaning “very good” or “out of this world”. At that moment, the Mai Tai was born.
