  • On Microinteractions

    Dribbble is full of cute UI animations and quite a few designers confuse them with microinteracations. Some people confuse it with a similar sounding word – “Drivel”. Many of those are more of an interstitial than a microinteraction. If they tell a story they can not be a microinteraction.

  • 5min Reminder

    This is a small app I needed but could not find one with the UX good enough. There is always something that has to be done in exactly 5 minutes.
