The techniques express the Craft

sitelogoHere are some of the interface and interaction design techniques that I like and use on my Professional Website.



 Response Ability

It’s Hip. It’s Sensible. It’s Obvious. It’s Necessary. It’s Happening.

We call it “responsive design“

It shows how much and what types of information lie before you – a visual “map” of volumes & types of information



It’s Semantic

Semantic tags are now an implicit part of HTML. The latent infrastructure for the systematic presentation of meaning is in place.

But it doesn’t mean anything if you don’t use it.

Semantic tagging = information architecture




The components fall into 2 main categories: presentational context and data content.

Reuseable content allows customizable context




The numbers are eye-catching. The content is easy to digest.

 It’s “big data’ – presented small.


Keyboard vs Mouse

“Texting” on handheld devices is the new skill

UI Design is often Seduced by the Rodent.


Useful Redundancy

In marketing, a call to action (CTA) provokes an immediate response

Date Entry

You do a lot of date entry / date selection when choosing criteria or entering fields.

Going Native

Prototype modeling, leverage code

the Dialog

It’s popular nowadays to reduce the User Interface and interaction complexity to nil…
