Solving the UX Designer Problem

Posted 4 years ago by Trevor Connolly No Comments

User experience is the future, according to Rick Wise, CEO of Lippincott. He’s right. According to his article in Fast Company, businesses used to thrive on product innovation, but are now turning to user experience (UX) to regain command of their customers. In today’s tech industry, companies are aggressively searching for innovative UX minds to help distinguish themselves in this relatively new creative field. I recently attended a career fair at a tech savvy university in search of UX Designers to join our creative team. However, after I spoke to the first few eager job-seekers, I realized I had a problem. Nearly each job-seeker I spoke to asked the same question: “What is a UX Designer?” (more…)

Smart is Seamless: How UX Leverages Edward Tufte’s Principles of Visual Information

Posted 4 years ago by Kyle Averack No Comments

Edward R. Tufte grandfathered the multivariate design approach to the world of visualized information. His paradigm shifting perspective of micro and macro data clustering ushered in the sophisticated approach of presenting information in strategic, multi-layered structures for designers the world over.

While considering contemporary approaches to graphical user interfaces (GUIs), how are products or services (un)intentionally leveraging Tufte’s ingenuity in their designs? In this review, I will cover how Tufte’s multi-layered principle of engagement has been utilized within the predictive, context aware mobile application, Google Now, and the whole-body movement tracker, Nike+ Fuel Band SE.

5 Tips for Landing Page Optimization

Posted 4 years ago by Lan Nguyen No Comments

Landing page optimization is a huge part of online marketing, more specifically with pay-per-click (PPC). When you optimize a page, you’re finding ways to make the page better so your users convert or buy your product/service. This is often a never-ending effort, and it should be. You always want to make your page better for your users, which is where UX and optimization meet. See what I did there?

UX is user-centered, whereas optimization has always been approached from a qualitative perspective (IE bounce rates). UX and optimization are a lot alike and should be treated the same. (more…)

The Importance of Content in User Experience Design (UXD)

Posted 4 years ago by Steve Nicholas No Comments

Despite a growing awareness of content, it unfortunately gets devalued. With all the buzz out there about “UX”, content needs to get some love, too. That’s because the first thing users look for on a website is words—not graphics, so you better make sure your site is easy to read. Optimization of content has never been more important and ease and functionality give content some real staying power.

A great analogy that illustrates the importance of content is to think of content as the salad dressing of user experience design, while interactive design is the salad. Of course, a salad by itself is edible, bland and not especially tasty or sexy. Doesn’t dressing totally enhance the flavor of salad? The cool, rich creaminess coupled with the crispness of the salad sends your taste buds into orbit and has them dancing. Well, it’s really no different with content because no matter how aesthetic the interactive experience is, content does the heavy lifting by delivering messaging, brand identity, insight and pertinent information.

Eight Designer Tips to Get You Motivated

Posted 4 years ago by Yung Tsai No Comments

If you’re a designer you’ll probably hit a wall every now and then. Sometimes it may be because there’s a change of deadline, a change of direction or some disagreements over a design decision with a boss, this can cause apathy on what you’re working and sometimes coffee just isn’t enough to get refueled, because what you really need is a spark to get moving.

Tip 1: Get up and move around

This is my number one tip of all, start here, it usually works just by doing this. Let’s face it, we sit on our butts a lot and all we need is to get some blood circulation going to get them gears from being rusty. Go outside (if you can) and walk around, throw a ball around, do some pushups. Staying active in general really helps. (more…)
