Signal vs. Noise: Color as a Wayfinding Tool | Viget
Used carefully, color can become a helpful wayfinding tool to better help a user know where she is and where to go next. When it comes to user interface design, you may want to limit your use of color. Instead, use it cautiously in very intentional and meaningful ways.

Using Visual Loudness for Better Wayfinding | Viget
Well-designed interactive experiences use loudness to help identify and amplify wayfinding systems. Because, if everything screams all you will hear is noise. Emphasis used properly—like a loudspeaker in a crowded room—can help guide attention more effectively. Careful use of visual loudness helps illuminate priority.

Displaying a webmentions facepile
One thing that quickly became apparent when displaying likes and reports on my own site was that the traditional listing format that we’re used to for comments is not well suited to these lighter interactions. When a like or repost is given the same visual weight and spacing as a comment, the listing soon gets very long and awkward to browse.

Transitional Interfaces — Design/UX — Medium
Designers love to sweat the details. Much time is spent pixel-fucking buttons, form styles, setting type, & getting those icons as sharp as a tack. A+, great job, don't stop you guys.

...but there's little consideration about how it all fits together outside of a static comp. You tap a button and the form just ...appears? You swipe to delete an item and it just vanishes? That’s super weird and un-natural. Nearly nothing in the real world does anything as jarringly as just swapping states. It would feel like a glitch.
