Or an application for energy management. Or a dashboard for corn traders. Maybe you’re designing something like that right now. In all the mentioned cases, people will expect tables. Not those fancy ones from design inspiration sites but Excel-looking monsters with hundreds of cells and complex interaction. In this case, a designer faces many challenges. For instance, matching design with existing frontend frameworks or struggling with “uncomfortable” data that smashes the layout. We’ll overcome these problems by means of the following steps: systematize needs, go atomic, and define interaction. Expectation vs. Reality (Large preview) 1. Systematize Needs So, you’ve interviewed the target audience and figured out their needs and wants. Now it’s time to piece together findings and transform them into an interface structure.

Speed up your computer with this discounted 1TB Samsung 860 Evo SSD

Not all solid-state drives are created equal, and Samsung’s 860 Evo SSDs are held in high regard among gamers (and non-gamers, too) for their reliability and fast read / write speeds. Perks like these usually put Samsung’s SSDs at a higher cost than products from competitors like SanDisk, Crucial, and others, but the 1TB 860 Evo SSD is slightly discounted today at Amazon. You can get the 1TB model for $147.99. To put that price in context, we saw this SSD go as low as $129.99 during Black Friday, but frankly, anything below its regular asking price is a deal if you’re looking to speed up your computer. This particular model debuted in early 2018 for $320, and its price has steadied around $160 outside of any deals, according to price… Read the full article…

How To Choose The Right Typeface For Your Design

Most UX and UI designers already understand the nuts and bolts of typography. They can tell you the difference between ‘font’ and ‘typeface’, between ‘mean line’ and ‘baseline’.

Here’s Why There Are No Titans in Apex Legends

Respawn Entertainment has said the giant mechs that populated its Titanfall series simply didn’t work in its free-to-play battle royale game, Apex Legends. Though Respawn has explicitly said Apex Legends is not a sequel to Titanfall 2, it is set in the same universe, leading many to wonder if wall running and big old robots were ever considered. Speaking to IGN, Executive Producer Drew McCoy said that they were, but they just didn’t work within the battle royale genre. “During development of Apex Legends, we prototyped a lot of stuff,” said McCoy. “Having come from Titanfall 2, we tried wall-running and double jumping and triple jumping, and all sorts of crazy stuff. And the goal of the game from a development standpoint was to create something strategic and masterable and learnable and very deep, and a lot of those mechanics were detrimental to those goals.”

Apex Legends Is Awesome, but it’s Not Perfect

Apex Legends is the latest entry in the increasingly crowded Battle Royale space. Created by Respawn, the developers of the beloved Titanfall franchise, Apex seems to not only take queues from other battle royales that proceeded it, but also from the hero shooter category, hence the Legends. Believe me when I say that these two aspects of game design work very well together. So well, in fact, that Apex Legends had already drawn in well over 2 million players in just its first few days. And while it seems to be getting fairly high praise from fans of the genre, there are a few aspects that could use some tightening up. Let’s dive in. The Legends themselves are what immediately sets Apex apart from other Battle Royales. Apex shipped with eight unique characters, with a promise of more to come. So, unlike Call of Duty’s Blackout where everyone drops onto Read the full article…
