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.
I had the privilege of sharing about Organic Growth and UX with the IdeaSpace 2017 startups. This was a meetup event by Voyager DX (digital transformation).
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.
After building the Content Structure (HTML) of your website, the next step in the process is building its Visuals (CSS).
To be able to ease the process of writing the style sheets, we must segment it into levels:
- Level 1: Default (browser level)
- Level 2: Normalize (boilerplate level)
- Level 3: Modify (visibility and sizes level)
- Level 4: Template (functionality level)
- Level 5: Theme (custom level)
Ideally, each level must be buildt on top of the previous one yet still independent. For example, leaving the style sheet at browser level must present usable information. The same principle applies as one builds the style sheet level per level.
Level 3: Modify
- hide accessible names
- hide components
- set default state of components thru class names
- active element padding
- spacings (margins between components and paddings around components)
- dimensions are set at 100% for Mobile-First
Level 4: Template
- set the functionality of utilities such as Search and Navigation
Level 4: Theme
- background colors/images
- visual elements (badges, logos, lines/borders, shadows, corner radius)
