[Пятничное]ASCII graffiti on retro monitors and other surfaces

 
3r3-31. If a person who likes pixel art is old, then a person who understands ASCII aesthetics is a superstar! Of course, this is a joke, and the age is most likely irrelevant. My son, for example, likes to play ASCII games that I make. At least he says so.
 
 
However, in order to perceive some things, such as the composition of the three canvases in the picture below, you need to have experience interacting with a certain software and hardware.

Design Digest: onboarding, feedback, finding ideas and making decisions

Design Digest: onboarding, feedback, finding ideas and making decisions  
 
3r3181. Onboarding 3r3r2182.
 
Onboarding is the process by which you introduce the user to your product.
 
 
Most often, the onboarding is carried out in three ways:
 
 
1. Before you let the user into the system, you show several screens in which you explain the essence of your service. Usually, this method is used in mobile applications when you are shown a picture and explanatory text. Yes, these are the screens that we scroll through, and then we try to figure out the interface on our own.
 
 
2. You can step by step help the user to make the first steps. Basecamp on login proposes to create a ...

Material design: Shape - tips for improving the graphical interface by changing the shape of elements

Material design: Shape - tips for improving the graphical interface by changing the shape of elements 3r31259.  
3r31259.  
3rr31127. From the translator
3r31259.  
Hello. I’m doing this translation because I myself recently started working with Shape in Android, I decided to rummage around material.io , and found there this collection of tips for use. It seemed to me interesting, useful, and informative, so I decided to share it with the Russian segment of mobile application developers. 3r31259.  
3r31259.  
It seems to me that this topic is quite important, because the use of different forms for interface elements makes the application more interesting, and maybe even more serious. 3r31259.

5 tasteless tricks in the design

 3r3172. 3r3-31. 5 tasteless tricks in the design
3r3-3160.  3r3172. [h2] Reception one: use a
stroke.  3r3172. 3r3142. 3r3-3160.  3r3172. 3r3-3160.  3r3172. 3r3-3160.  3r3172. We remind you again: do not use a stroke! Most often you can without it - nothing will change. Stroke only visually weights. 3r3-3160.  3r3172. 3r330. 3r3-3160.  3r3172. If it is difficult to read without it, then select contrasting colors so that everything can be read without additional help. 3r3-3160.  3r3172. 3r3-3160.  3r3172.
Reception two: use stock graphics 3r3142. 3r3-3160.  3r3172. In all cases, this is bad. First: created from scratch is always better than a copy. Secondly: one hundred percent chance that someone else will use the same stock graphics...[/h]

“Human error? No, bad design. ” Opinion about Donald Norman's book “Design of Habitual Things”

“Human error? No, bad design. ” Opinion about Donald Norman's book “Design of Habitual Things” 3r3335.  
3r3335.  
Despite the fact that the design sphere is actively developing, there are practically no sensible books on this topic. The only book recommended by experienced designers was written in 1988 and still has not lost relevance, because whatever technology mankind has acquired, our psychology and basic needs remain the same (at least until we all became biohackers) . 3r3335.  
3r311. 3r3338. 3r3335.  
People often blame themselves for not understanding the technique or admitting mistakes made not through their fault. Donald Norman argues that if a person does not understand the principle ...

The implementation of the k-means algorithm (k-means) on the example of working with pixels

 3r33855. 3r3-31. Hello! Recently, it was necessary to write code to implement image segmentation using the k-means method. Well, google first thing to help. I found a lot of information, as well as from a mathematical point of view (all sorts of complicated mathematical doodles there, you will understand what the hell is written there), and some software implementations that exist on the English Internet. Of course, these codes are beautiful - no doubt, but the very essence of the idea is hard to catch. Somehow it’s all complicated there, confusing, and as long as you don’t write the code with ...

The forgotten art of decorating packaging for video cards

The forgotten art of decorating packaging for video cards  
 
Modern gaming PCs and their components look like sports cars, invented by brutal teenagers. Manufacturers give them sharp edges, blue lighting and red racing strips to make them work faster. The result is a huge, massive structure standing in the corner of the bedroom, like an obelisk from the movie "2001", which was coined by Stanley Kubrick, who grew up on the films "Fast and the Furious" and the power engineers.
 
 
But compared to the game past of the PC, these creations are clearly losing. Not so long ago, when computers were beige, and monitors - plump, PC players had to put up with a design of ...
