This is an interesting perspective, for sure, provided in this article. I think many things are stolen, and it's hard not to do it, in some instances. Coming up with something totally unique and original is tough, even with writing blog entries! But there is  some validity to it, and it applies to content strategy as well. I have an article that I'm writing that will hopefully be coming out soon that will address this issue--with a twist--in the near future.  Stay tuned for that! In the meantime, read this and see how this is an important concept to grasp.

Being an active member of various social media sites is a great way to get your brand noticed.  Continuous interactions with your followers will also keep your brand relevant.

Mance Creative's curator insight, April 9, 2014 3:56 PM

Social Media is an excellent resource for branding....and it's free.

Alex Ellsworth's curator insight, July 3, 2015 7:15 AM

This infographic shows that the most preferred way for consumers to get updates about a brand is through short updates via platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Naturally, people who are more involved on these platforms mention brands more in their own updates, and share things about brands. Because of this, brands have a huge opportunity to gain more buyers. By using a profile of someone who "likes" a brand, they can view what else they like, and target people who have similar interests. Not surprisingly, the thing most people like to see via their favorite brands on social networks is coupons and discounts. I think it would be helpful for brands to somehow construct a sort of virtual "punch card" for incentive; sharing something, referring likes, engaging with customer service, etc would give the customer a unique code for, say, 5-10% off their next purchase. This way, you are building a unique space on the internet, an interactive place where customers will want to return.

Just today I got into a discussion that designing for digital wearables must certainly be the next frontier in the user experience design space. In my view, it is all about context - giving the user what they need with a  just-in-time approach.

The User Experience And Psychology Of Colour - SpyreStudios

The User Experience And Psychology Of Colour - SpyreStudios | Digital Analog | Scoop.it
There is a lot of psychology in colour, and while I don't claim to be an expert, every now and then I come across something that seems to be rather counterintuitive.

I suppose there are some cultural influences on colour as well, and people need to take these sorts of things into account when designing sites, but there also seem to be some ideas that cross over cultural lines.

Many designers stop at the effective and useful side of design thinking, but forget or leave aside the satisfaction side of things for the user. the more involved we are in the discovery of the full user experience, the better engaged our users will be with a digital product.

7 unbreakable laws of user interface design

7 unbreakable laws of user interface design | Digital Analog | Scoop.it

Are you a web designer? If yes, then you are also a user interface designer, and in the near future, this role will become even more important for you. While web pages today have simple user interfaces with no more than navigation and contact forms, the rise of new technologies and standards will create a demand for more dynamic and customized experiences. This, inevitably, means more user interface work. So let’s see what you need to remember.

We all know that best practice is not a recipe for successful innovation, memorizing a few laws are not enough to become a designer. And this is the charming part of being a designer according to me - every new project is unique: users change, technology change and context change. However, articles like this one can still be useful to support decision making and avoid obvious design mistakes.
