Out of curiosity, what did your final solution look like?

This got 10 answers and a lot of page views pretty fast, so clearly you're not alone in this one!

comment Critique: Scrollable flyout nav menu
As for the menu itself, I agree that, as it stands, there isn't enough to definitively let the user know that he can scroll. I think I can make some improvements without having to completely scrap the concept, though. And, I think that if people are inclined to swipe scroll the menu rather than click the buttons, the concern about multiple clicks goes away. I don't know if there's any research on this, but one swipe versus a click into a sandwich menu (a false dilemma, but a realistic one at this stage of the process) are probably pretty equivalent.

comment Critique: Scrollable flyout nav menu
Thanks for your feedback! The user buttons will probably end up getting reworked a bit - I don't think it's necessary for "Change Password" to get such a prominent view and hope to get it incorporated into other settings. If we're down to two icons, I can maybe do away with icons entirely and just link the name and add a text "Log out" link. We'll see how that goes.

comment Critique: Scrollable flyout nav menu
Thanks for your feedback! The row is draggable on mobile and should be scrollable on desktop - do let me know if that's not the case. I do agree that more visual cues for the submenu can be given and will work on that.

comment Critique: Scrollable flyout nav menu
Thanks for the feedback! Check out the Pen on mobile - it does scroll on swipe there. I thought about making it mouse-draggable, but I figured that the scroll is less likely to pop there, and the arrows are easier to click with a mouse than touch with a finger. I'm not opposed to the the "More" menu option, but we liked the idea of consistency between breakpoints, and dealing with submenus would be become more problematic. See my edits for some further explanation. Your usability concerns are certainly valid but I think that the occurrences of scrollable navs on the desktop will be rare.

comment Critique: Scrollable flyout nav menu
@JamesEarnshaw If you're referring to the smallest view where the search box and the logo get weird, that happened when I copied/pasted to Codepen and didn't feel like fixing it because it was beyond the scope of the question. I'm interested in hearing more about awkward design rules though, that's a critique I didn't expect to hear!

@ZachSaucier Unusable from a technical perspective? If you're viewing in Codepen on a mobile, make sure it's set to 1x. The menu scrolls on swipe; the arrows aren't required there but admittedly that might not be obvious to the uninitiated.

@Nit - Criticism is expected, but I would hope that you could at least delve into the "why" a bit! Feel free to post an answer :)

comment Methods for designing identity systems beyond the logo
@DA01 - Do you have a sense of what that looks like? Does the design team pass a brand manual to the ad team who runs with it? Or, does the designer pass a logo to the ad team, who does some stuff, and then the designers encapsulate the use cases into something more consistent? My specific context is that I'm trying to launch an in-house brand and I feel like I'm stuck between either defining guidelines we won't use later or having a messy brand with no rules. I'm wondering if this is a common problem or if I'm just approaching it wrong.

comment How do I properly create a derivative work with a font licensed as SIL Open Font?
It's just weird to me that I would make no meaningful changes to the font other than reduce the number of glyphs in it and then put my name on it like I made the font myself. It makes sense, though...

comment How do I properly create a derivative work with a font licensed as SIL Open Font?
@Amphiteóth - yeah, that seems to be the most important part. If you want to throw that in as an answer you're welcome to; otherwise, I'll post up an answer with some of the process I went through to arrive at my solution.

comment Skew transform severely distorts screenshot - any workaround?
Try scaling it down first, then applying the skew in two separate transformations. I've found that can give better results.

comment Can you help me identify one serif and one sans font?
@pixelpinch take a look at the 'e' in 'Garden' and the 'C' in "RESIDENCE". Once you know what those look like you'll pick out Rotis every time. It's one of the weirdest fonts I know that has a degree of popularity.
