This Is Responsive: a great resource site about responsive design!

How Much Has The Web Really Changed?

Two years ago, responsive was the near future (I remember this time very well, because I had been asked to lead the early design direction of a very large global website in the consumer electronic industry). The whole team made the decision to go responsive, and honestly we never regret it. Today, responsive is the emerging standard of design principle. 

As a Design / UX manager it forces you to think in a new way (revise all you knew about screen layout and interaction model), and you learn a lot on Content and API framework.

Thanks to Brad Frost you don’t have to go the hard way. Check his excellent resource site, I wish I had it two years ago.

Touch screen design: the ideal button size

An MIT Touch Lab study of Human Fingertips to investigate the Mechanics of Tactile Sense found that the average width of the index finger is 1.6 to 2 cm (16 – 20 mm) for most adults. This converts to 45 – 57 pixels, which is wider than what most mobile guidelines suggest.

1. Designing for 34 / 44 pixels touch target (Windows Phone UI Design and Interaction Guide and iPhone Human Interface Guidelines)

Touch target 34 px


2. Designing for 57 pixels touch target (ergonomically correct)

Touch target finger 57px


3. Designing for 72 pixels touch target (Thumb correct)

Touch target 72px

The disturbing results from FaceBook Graph Search

Here are two examples, one targeting companies, the other individual. There is more on his tumbler site: http://actualfacebookgraphsearches.tumblr.com/
