What has been your most notable rebel accomplishment or experience?
The user interface team at Chikka has managed to incorporate a vital step in the design process. Before, sketches and wire frames were sidestepped in the process of developing web products. Now we have shared the knowledge with product developers that those are important in every project.
Beware the Pixel Police
I saw what you did there. The padding between form fields is 24 pixels. Please remove 8 pixels from that gap. Make sure to use the components provided.Chief of Pixel Police
Well… yeah… it’s your fault. Components are ready-built — why can’t you just use it with all its pre-built goodnes. Why take matters into your own hands and decide 24 pixels here and 32 pixels there. Don’t ever do that next time. If you do, make sure to just move 1 pixel at a time to avoid detection. My brain whispered to me.
Can sarcasm be used for fun? Sure can! Actually, I don’t have any beef in using components, no matter how they scream for adjustments. But, hey, we are designers. We design — that’s what we do. We take, we break, and make it new again, in a different light. Better, I hope.
Riding on CSS

First: stop. Pause. Take a deep breath. Look around. What do you notice? Are you experiencing this moment with someone else? Remember that this moment only comes once. Photography can be part of a beautiful experience. Just don’t let it be a block between you and reality. Be intentional, and don’t lose a beautiful, irreplaceable memory, because you were too focused on getting the shot.Erin Sullivan in Does photographing a moment steal the experience from you?
