Designing User Interfaces For Business Web Applications | Smashing UX Design

Designing User Interfaces For Business Web Applications | Smashing UX Design | Usability | Scoop.it
Business Web application design is too often neglected. I see a lot of applications that don't meet the needs of either businesses or users and thus contribute to a loss of profit and poor user experience. It even happens that designers are not involved in the process of creating applications at all, putting all of the responsibility on the shoulders of developers. This is a tough task for developers, who may have plenty of back-end and front-end development experience but limited knowledge of design. This results in unsatisfied customers, frustrated users and failed projects. So, we will cover the basics of user interface design for business Web applications. While one could apply many approaches, techniques and principles to UI design in general, our focus here will be on business Web applications.

The User Experience And Psychology Of Colour - SpyreStudios | Usability | 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.”

Good, Bad & Ugly of 2014 Web Design Trends: Large Hero, Responsive Design, Animated Storytelling - Intercore

Good, Bad & Ugly of 2014 Web Design Trends: Large Hero, Responsive Design, Animated Storytelling - Intercore | Usability | Scoop.it
Web Design Example Intercore There are a lot of things I like about this website design for the private equity firm Intercore such as: The Good * Responsive Design. * Animated Storytelling (love the factoids fading in and out). * Large Hero. * Flat color palette (monochrome color schemes). * Location of social media in CONTACT area. The Bad The biggest nit I have is the lack of social media, but that brings up an interesting choice too. I'm betting a private equity firm isn't dependent on the web either for customers or SEO so Intercore's decision to only have Facebook and to put that link low down on the contact page reflects their business model better than it would most (who need customers from the web and care about SEO). I Liked the company and there is confusing information on their abaout page. Don't feel compelled to play shuffle the deck in social media. If I was going to explain their corporate umbrella the Facebook About age is not where I would do it (lol). Interesting and good ideas well executed to steal here. Whoever created this site knew what they were doing from a design and content architecture perspective. The Ugly By zooming out on my laptop I found their Twitter link. This is one of the perils of responsive design. The link is also broken directing into the home page so will share the fact their Twitter is broken on their Facebook page.

How Behavioural Design Creates the Best User Experiences - WiderFunnel Marketing Conversion Optimization | Usability | Scoop.it
The influence of new research in Behavioural Design is far-reaching. The field tackles complex societal challenges, but how can it be applied to your business and website?

Apps and websites that are most successful have found a way to create a wonderful user experience. They apply the latest research in behavioural influence, and also test within their context.

I can attest to the mixed results with a recent app experience.
