👋 Oi, mga repapips, Brian Dys here! I love music, photography, and creative stuff like UX design and art. This is a place where I collect my thoughts and works. Apart all these, I’m Jaycelle’s better half and Bryce’s dad. 🥰
Sometime in 1995 I chanced upon a song playing in NU107. It captivated me with “Champagne Supernova” lyrics – me being in hipster phase, being attracted to things that was ironic and overall it just called onto me.
Right after that a voice roped me to go to a local music store. I was there at their glass display counter browsing a wall lined up with all sorts of music in cassette tape.
I hummed the lyrics of “Champagne Supernova” to the sales lady and she pulled out an Oasis.
The first time ever have I known this band. And the rest as they say is that I made them my idols.
Beady Eye, Noel Gallagher – it’s all Oasis to me.
I pay tribute to Oasis for my poetry and photography. Pretentious as it started but hey, we all fake it till we make it.

In designing the user interface (UI) of an app, it is common to start with the design of the populated state of the UI. As designers, we envision perfect scenarios, common flows, and predictable results. This, understandably, contains the bulk of work a designer has to face. It contains all sorts of issues that need to be addressed.
In turn, we might neglect designing for the different states of the component or the whole system that we are designing.
In general, here are the different states a component might be in:
The populated state simply means that the component has been modified to have its intended content. In the example of an Accounts page, there is at least one account created.
The blank state occurs when there is no content – whether it is the initial appearance or a result of removing all previous content.
Always consider the design of the other states of the components.

I am currently making a curriculum for the basics of HTML and CSS.
Revisiting CSS Levels, I have written in the past about it:
The important thing to remember is to pattern it after the Levels of HTML wherein we must begin with Accessibility and Usability in mind.
And from there on, we build towards Visual Design.
Using this as basis, one could argue that Colors and Typography are “nice-to-haves”.
Can your design stand in black and white?
Can your design stand in a serif font?
Yes, it should.
