The Science Behind Design: 8 Psychology Principles to Apply to Your Next Project

The Science Behind Design: 8 Psychology Principles to Apply to Your Next Project | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

When it comes down to it, design is all about making choices. Each color, shape, line, font, text, and graphic you use will ultimately influence the message you're trying to get across.

I’ve often been in conversations with people who know they should get better at design, but they don’t feel they have a “natural sense” for creativity. However, I argue that learning to design well has as much to do with psychology and user behavior as it does creativity.

But learning the "psychology of design" doesn’t mean picking up a playbook that'll tell you the right and wrong way to design something. That's just not the way it works.


What brushing up on psychological principles (as they relate to design) will do is help you understand what goes into the creation of intuitive, intentional design experiences. 

Want to learn more? We'll dive into a handful of psychological principles below to help you get the wheels turning....

How You Can Prepare for Twitter’s Potential Upcoming Changes

How You Can Prepare for Twitter’s Potential Upcoming Changes | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

Twitter strategy might be shifting and the implications for our personal and business experience could be profound.

If you're in social media marketing, you probably cringe at the mention of the word EdgeRank. I know I do, because it makes me think of how frustrating it is that even the best of my brand's Facebook content might not be seen by more than 200 or 300 of our 57,000 fans unless I spend money to promote it.

Brace yourselves, social marketers, because algorithms just like Facebook's EdgeRank might be coming to Twitter. In this post by our friend Mark Schaeffer, you can learn about some of the reasons why Twitter is thinking about implementing this, including the pressure from investors now that Twitter has gone public.

Interesting article written by @Ally Greer. To me, the potential Twitter algorithm boils down to this: As a brand, you need to build relationships with your community of supporters.



In 2014, you have no choice. The popularity contest/honeymoon is over. You MUST focus on people. It's not a "me vs. them" approach, it's what should have happened a lot earlier.



It doesn't matter if you only have 50 followers. What matters is what you do with them. If you have taken the time to know them, they will help you make it to the top. Period.

Rethinking PowerPoint: The New Wave of Presentation Tools

Rethinking PowerPoint: The New Wave of Presentation Tools | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

From Karen: In a presentation rut? Looking for better tools that actually allow you to more easily create a narrative or allow for easier story sharing than PowerPoint? Then check out this article and the recommended tools!

 

Although tools like Powerpoint and Keynote have become the de facto standard for giving presentations, they are often limiting in their design and ease of use. And while tools like SlideShare help users share their presentations online, they often don’t give enough context to the slides.

 

To provide solutions to these pain points, traditional presentation tools are being completely re-thought from the cloud down to help presenters deliver a better presentation, and share it relevantly after it’s done.

 

Thank you to fellow curator Baiba Svenca for originally curating this article!
