Brainstorming is a popular working method which is commonly used by UX design teams. It involves a group of designers meeting (whether offline or via video call) and generating as many ideas as possible to find the best solution to a specific problem or come up with creative design ideas. Brainstorming sessions are usually held at the start of a UX project so that designers could use the ideas they think are the best later in the process of product creation. These sessions can vary in duration and form depending on which problems need to be solved, how many people participate and how many ideas need to be generated.
This article is about how to properly work with typography when developing websites and interfaces. In my work with Junior and Middle designers I often come across the fact that guys make very simple mistakes when working with text. And today I will try to show by examples how not to make these mistakes.
Font as a tool
Choosing a font
Accentuation and typesetting
Caps and Axes

Most novice web designers at the beginning of their journey still in the courses hear such a concept as modular grid, and wonder what it is and how to properly customize and use this tool.
From personal experience, I know that in many courses with titles "web designer from zero to pro" or " IU / UX designer in a month" this topic is either skipped, or give instructions, where they say everywhere to use a grid of 12 columns with margins of 80 to 100 pixels. And, as a result, it turns out that after taking these gore courses, a person sees beautiful works, thinks to repeat them, but the grid does not work, and the student, simply, does the work without a grid and completely forgets about it.
That's why I want to help beginners to understand this really voluminous issue.
One of the common tasks that both beginners and experienced game designers face is describing a large amount of content to pass its parameters to the engine. This is not an easy task, given that it is very difficult to find materials on the technical aspects of game design. Well, let’s figure out how to transfer data to the engine.
Every day a new neural network appears and every day more opportunities are opened to designers to simplify their workflow. Someone fundamentally refuses to use them, because “there is no life in machinex and technologies”, and someone is only happy to find a way to reduce the amount of work. Personally, I belong to the second type and want to share the most detailed gait on neurons I have acquired lately.

How I hate it when the interface takes a lot of time, but it could be different…
This year we conducted a survey of 78 purchasing managers from Forbes Global 2000 companies based in Vancouver, BC. Last year, Covid restrictions were eased, agency employees partially returned to their offices. This year has become a real challenge for agencies' CEOs, they had to find compromises with employees who did not want to return to the office, and at the same time manage projects at the same efficient level. Clutch is not the platform market can trust anymore because of the paid placements (sponsors and featured) that can cover up to 50 first positions in some cases. So we asked procurement managers in Vancouver to rate their digital marketing agencies from 0 to 10 based on the following criteria:

Hi everyone! My name is Dmitrii Konstantinov and this is a personal story of experience and growth in a cozy startup. How we made a business pivot and adapted the server and mobile apps for it. What challenges did we face and how did we solve them.
In 2021, we were contacted by an industrial plant that was faced with the need to create a system for analyzing processes in its production. The enterprise team studied ready-made solutions, but none of the analytics system designs fully covered the required functionality. So they turned to us with a request to develop their own analytical system that would collect data from all machines and allow it to be analyzed to see bottlenecks in production. For this project, we created a data-driven UI/UX design and also developed a web-based interface for the equipment monitoring system.

Getting a task from a client, UX designers tend to pay attention to the design goals, not the contents of the website/app itself. There’s something completely wrong with it because the visual part might be superb, but when it frames a vague or wordy message, the client's goals won’t be reached.
To avoid this, a UX designer should dive deeper into the content, analyze it, and restructure it in an interface-friendly way. It doesn’t mean doing the copywriter’s job, it means collaborating. The reality is that sometimes the writing team is used to praising the product (because clients like that), or there is no copywriter involved in the project at all.
Provide proof instead of opinion
An impression is more powerful when the customer can conclude the product’s benefits on their own. Instead of a colorful line of adjectives like “ultimate” or “leading” you should aim at what exactly makes the product that cool. The trick is to be precise, preferably with an example.
It feels like everything about LPs has already been said, however, I still keep seeing the same mistakes being made over and over again both by start-ups and established companies. Here are some tips, backed up by my 10-year experience as a UX/UI Director in agencies and product-led companies. These alone will give a nice increase in your conversion rate, I guarantee.
Use a descriptive, not a salesy hero header
Answer the questions “What?” and “For whom?” as early on the page as possible. A very common pattern is the largest copy being an inspirational abstract slogan and below it in smaller font the actual statement about what the product is and what it does.
On average, online store users make 64 clicks before adding a product to the cart. Some clicks are useful - so-called discovery clicks that help lead to users finding a product they wish to buy, and some are useless that come as the result of poor UX. With great competition for convenience and increasingly reducing attention spans of users, each useless click reduces the number of visitors that will reach checkout.
