Hi, I’m Brian Dys — a photographer from the inside looking out · a composer entangled in electronic music · a UX designer · a spouse, a parent, & everything in between.
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:
Groups presenting their pitch decks:
- Aboo is an audio book platform for Filipinos.
- Cleaning Lady is a social enterprise that seeks to bridge the gap between the privileged communities and the under served communities – by creating meaningful opportunities that bind them together and enable them to make a difference in each other’s lives.
- Cropital is a crowdfunding platform that connects anyone to help finance our farmers.
- PayMaya Escrow
- E.A.R.S. or Early Action Response System is an assistive wearable safety device for the deaf and hard of hearing.
- Investagrams is a one stop shop to financial freedom. It provides a handy guidance for people who wants to start their journey in the world of stock market.
- Tarkie is a holistic tool that empowers businesses to measure and improve the accomplishments of their field teams.
- Taxumo is a mobile & web app that maximizes your tax savings and generates accurate business reports & tax forms in 1 click.
- Tralulu is a digital booking platform that connects travelers around South-East Asia to quality local guides who can provide local experiences.
A symbol of development and prosperity – where people flock to work, play, and live.
The very least, a sweeper – someone who belongs to the streets to keep it clean – a person who encounters and faces the very least of the dirt that otherwise would hinder us from living in a clean environment.
Both of these terms come together to form an initiative to help the government formulate solutions primarily with the help of the internet.
From information dissemination to accessible web content and information to automated processes – MetroAide aims to take advantage of the internet to enable the Filipino people avail of the government’s services.

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.
