Hi all - I am a UX designer whose recently been given responsibility for getting our design pattern library up to speed. Can anyone recommend a researched based design patter library - similar to the usability.gov publication - but newer and more comprehensive. Looking to spend some money, or get what I can for free. Any leads would be much appreciated!!
I'm looking for any research or information on best practices for designing interactions where users have to accept some legal terms and conditions. For instance - what are the advantages/disadvantages of presenting terms to the side of the main form vs. below or in a pop-up? Or - if the terms are going to be in a scrolling window, are there any guidelines about how big that window should be? How many lines should show at once relative to length of the whole agreement?
I just posted about making design patterns work in practice on the Autodesk Designing the User Experience blog. I am curious to hear other stories about creating and using design patterns within a corporate or agency environment.
I am creating a signup process for a paid-for service and am looking for best practices. I've found the following web resources but would like to understand the design patterns in a more structured manner. Can anyone recommend better reference material?
