Erin Lynn Young's Groups

 

Hi there!

I'm Erin.

I am founder & principal UX consultant at Austin's own Slide UX. For the past ten years, I've been focused on helping product managers and marketers create sites and applications that are useful, usable, good-looking, and optimized.


I've worked with a wide variety of clients, ranging from Atlasssian to UPS and RetailMeNot.com to the U.S. Dept of Education. I now manages a growing team of 7 UX designers, researchers, and strategists.


My firm is always looking for new talent and interesting projects. Find out more at slideux.com

A Float Label Pattern For Mobile

A Float Label Pattern For Mobile:

Disappearing field labels are so tempting in the limited real estate of the mobile context.

I can’t wait to give this new approach a try.

Here Are The Hard Skills You Need To Succeed As A New Designer

Here Are The Hard Skills You Need To Succeed As A New Designer:

Titles like this one can be intimidating - I wince as I click through on articles like this one wondering whether I or my team will make the cut.

But this one, too me, is realistic and true – a boots-on-the-ground view into some of the day-to-day work that is Interaction Design. These are the bones that we have learned to look for when we hire.

The ability to take chicken scratches from a whiteboard and turn it into a clickable prototype will make you your boss’ best friend.

Being a good talker or having a portfolio on the bleeding edge of the industry is certainly not a bad thing. But our clients consistently require one thing - solid work, on time.

A lot of it isn’t the most glamorous stuff, but its the basis upon which everything else is build.

Hi, Erin,

I attended Chris Risdon's lecture User Experience Maps to Design Multi-Touchpoint Experiences and was wondering where I could find the slides. Thanks for organizing the event!
