Hi! I'm a North American UX engineer. This is where I share cool ideas that I'm overly excited about.


All opinions are my own, and do not reflect the attitudes of the company I work for. They know better.

A better segmented control

https://medium.com/tap-to-dismiss/a-better-segmented-control-9e662de2ef57

As I get more involved with building UX tools for others to use, I want to have greater focus on the "why" behind a component, not just the superficial details. Runi Goswami, working with Lyft's Design Systems team, reflects on their thought process regarding a segmented control they developed, as they determined what contexts it belonged in and how to communicate that to the team. It's a process I hope to emulate with my own projects.
