With a proper interface comes the proper responsibility to pair it with an appropriate design. With the creation of my own personal design language that I like to call Milk UX. I wanted to create a new type of design language that harmonizes interface navigation and design without compromises. I wanted keep things clean and sleek without delving into the 'overly-simplified' category of user interfaces. Focusing on the fundamentals of basic navigation and the art of human interface design was only the beginning. I wanted Milk UX to be more than just another interface. I wanted it to be a new type of web experience that would re-define what it means not only use, but to be a website. I wanted Milk UX to be responsive, straight and most importantly, eye-catching. Milk UX was designed to scale down to the smallest displays, to the average phone or tablet, all the way up to 8K displays.
When it comes to design, I like to keep things concise. Not too simple, and not to complex. I want it just right. it's not a good practice to intimidate the user with some overly complex design. You want them to feel comfortable. You want them to feel welcome. But at the same time, you don't want to deter any advanced users either. I've seen this mistake happen one too many times in the industry, even by industry leaders such as Apple and Microsoft. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. I want it to always work. I aim to meet both of these objectives in the middle and please the entire audience. I believe that this is the best way to maximize the impact you create on the user. But at the end of the day, who am I to say what's right and what's wrong with properly engaging users to not only love but promote your design? It's about the experience you create too, and that's just the beginning.
I'm no professional photographer, but that doesn't mean taking photos isn't something out of the ordinary for me to do. The many different places I've visited, the things I've gotten to see and the things I've created all end up saved as permanent memories here. It isn't too often that I go do something that warrants an actual photograph to be taken of it. In fact, most of the time there just isn't any time to whip out a camera and capture the moment anyway. You could argue that any of the moments I've captured are fortunate to even exist. Some of them planned, while others were just taken in the heat of the moment. When things happen in my life, I don't first think to take a photograph like most of the population, but to observe it instead. It's a bad habit and I should probably work on fixing that in the meantime. Just remember, I never said I was a professional, but feel free to judge nonetheless.
