What do we mean when we say ‘sorting’ or that something should be ‘sticky’?

When team members communicate, they need a shared language to discuss UI patterns, interactions, and behaviours. When a designer refers to a ‘dropdown’ or a ‘modal’, other designers and developers need to have the same thing in mind.

Inspired by pattern languages as pioneered by Christopher Alexander, this project will explore and define user interface concepts and components.

UI Speak is a project of Daniel Wiseman, a Toronto-based UX Designer.
