5 of the best: #8

This week: Tips on how you could enhance your interface with subtle feedback given to the user, more fire to the argument of people not scrolling and a nifty little tool for creating assets for your website. Self promotion also features. Sorry.

1. Shape Factory – Simple tools to enrich creativity

2. Turn your good interface into a great one

A relatively simple article showing how to implement more effective UI transitions (mainly) to enhance the user experience. A lot of these would likely be more easily implemented in an app environment than website, but I’m sure most are possible given time and resource to refine them.
See how

Until next week, thanks for reading 🙂
