Archives For XD News

Going forward most, if not all, of my articles will be on external sites. There are two reasons for this.

  1. It gets way more eyes on my work than this site tends to do.
  2. I make a little bit of money that I wouldn’t make posting it here.

I will link to these articles though. You can check out my first two articles on Envato Web Design site Webdesign Tuts+.

Status Update

January 5, 2012 — Leave a comment

Sorry everyone for the absence. This site got hacked and it took a while to get things going again. We’re back now. I’ve lost a few posts but, fortunately, that seems to be the extent of the casualties.

I’ll be doing some updates to the site, some obvious and some not so obvious. I’ll also try to provide much more consistent coverage in 2012.

Keep designing and I’m looking forward to what 2012 brings.

There will be a new format for posts on XenoAbe Design from now on. Short. The posts I’ve put together usually take a lot more time and research than they may appear to at first glance. To make this a much more active website, and community, I will be making shorter posts more frequently. I hope you like the change and I implore you to encourage any of your friends/family/coworkers/acquaintances/world domination hopefuls interested in usability, UX, or technology in general to visit and leave their opinions. I’m supposed to be the expert, but that in no manner means I can’t learn things from others with varying opinions.

By the way, the Kristen Chenoweth reference simply means the posts will be short, sweet, and displaying my talents (I know her from Pushing Daisies and not any broadway plays so I get to hold on to my man card).

New Design!

Thanks to Standard Theme for providing an awesome framework for the new design. I’ll be providing some more updates, but I thought that the site had been down long enough and it was at least in shape to unveil again.

New Look!

Well, it’s taken a while, but the redesign is finally up. What do you think? Leave your thoughts and feedback in the comments.

Now that the site design is up I hope to have posts more frequently. In fact, there’s one that should be up either tonight or tomorrow.

An Eternal Supernova

February 13, 2009 — Leave a comment

Supernovas explode onto the scene and outshine entire galaxies. However, they are often fleeting. For one to be eternal it would forever outshine all the other stars.
That’s the goal of XenoAbe Design.

XenoAbe Design has two purposes.

  1. To house my own personal work and information for companies to find out who I am and what I’m all about.
  2. To provide an informational and professional blog of the current state of the Design world.

The focus will be on User Experience/Interaction/Interface Design and Information Architecture. However, XD will occasionally stray into other realms such as programming practices, graphic design, and sundry other items that may happen to interest me and the XenoAbe Design audience.

Be sure to check out the ‘Justin’ and ‘Portfolio’ pages to find out more about this guy who calls himself XenoAbe.

I hope you enjoy the site and feel free to comment often to help improve the content and direction of XenoAbe Design.
