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.
As front-end designers, we are using patterns over and over again – we are employing specific techniques to answer specific needs. But what we lack is a term, a name tag for those methods.
It’s simply like the Flying V of The Mighty Ducks!
So far, I’ve added Padding and Framing to my vocabulary.
Let’s try another one. Say for example, I need the following for my website’s header:
- Fixed-height header
- Responsive width
- The content of the header are all vertically-aligned in the middle
- If the content of the header exceeds the fixed height, then it will respond
What kind of solution does this need and what can we name the technique?
