Designing  services
One of the misunderstandings of these days is that a designer has an artist or artisan background. In that approach designers are idea generators, visualizers and prototypers.   That is not our point of view. Our adagium comes from the management writer Herbert Simon, who stated that "Everyone designs who devises courses of action  aimed at changing existing into preferred ones".  As stated by others, this version of design tends to abstraction and general expertise.   The focus of this blog is service and services. In our world  service is exchanged for service. All firms are service firms; all markets are centered on the exchange of service, and all economies and societies are service based. And just even government and other institutions are always exchanging services for services. But be sure, in this era of change there is a heavy focus also on concept generation, visualization and digital concept and prototypes.   Interested in designing services?

Birth of the Cool: 2012 UI, UX Design Trends

Birth of the Cool: 2012 UI, UX Design Trends | Designing  services |

User Experience UX Software Design 2013 Trends. Agree, big 2013 design trends include:

* Visual Marketing & Design Simplicity (lean content, lots of Infographics and other data visualizations).

* Content Marketing heavily influenced by mobile first and mobile's content constraints (speed, small, UI).


Would add bubbles about the size of "mobile first" for:
* Predictive Analytics.

* Real Time "read the cookie, fire the design" triggers.

* Move to branching business logic controlling design elements.


I may be the only champion of the freedom from design boxes movement. I just don't see UX and design functioning in such limited ways for much longer. Design is most impactful when it is relevant and we have enough persona and behavior information to "read the cookie, fire the design" now. 

Why aren't we?

I saw this same problem with the move from A/B to multivariate testing. MVP testing puts such a load on shifting THINKING and creative that adoption was slow. AI-like web design has the same problem. Once you create a branching path algorithm based on personas and behaviors you need LOTS of creative to support the move.  

Oh, this isn't the ONLY time I've been up on a soapbox all by my lonesome.

Design Tips
These tips rock. Very specific and several are new to me. For example, despite my Director of Ecommerce roots I did not know that 40% of purchases on an ecommerce website are impulse buys. These tips help you maximize the impulse and convert visitors to buyers and advocates.
