Don't use these UX design patterns

Rather than focusing on the specific blunders of certain technology products, this week, I have come up with 7 more common design patterns that just plain suck. There is never any excuse for any of them.The thing is, if someone’s design includes one or more of these patterns, they’re probably not cut out for UX anyway, and this article will probably not reach them, or if it does, it won’t sink in. But I might as well try, right?

Well, okay - except for the odd notion that each human being only has one email address that they would ever think of using online.

The writer does come across with the same sort of arrogance as Jakob Nielsen back in the bad old days - 'my way is the only way, all else is idiocy' - which I don't think promotes kindness and understanding...

"Having only a native app with no web alternative"

Vero?

(which seems to have gone rather quiet again already after the recent short lived hype)

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
