Looking Beyond User-Centered Design

Looking Beyond User-Centered Design | UXploration | Scoop.it
User-centered design has served the digital community well. So well, in fact, that I'm worried its dominance may actually be limiting our field. The terms “user experience design” (UX) and “user-centered design” (UCD) are often used interchangeably.

User Requirements in the 21st Century

Our development processes need to be aligned with the needs of the 21st century in light of the experience of the past decade.

Solving the Right Problem and Finding Your Own Solution: An Interview with Don Norman

Solving the Right Problem and Finding Your Own Solution: An Interview with Don Norman | UXploration | Scoop.it

One of the important skills a good designer brings to the table is figuring out what the real problem is. Most designers fall prey to this. The client says what they want, what they want to achieve, and then the designer comes up with a solution, but they never really ask whether or not that’s the actual underlying problem. If you dig a little deeper for the fundamental problem, your research can lead to creative and innovative solutions, sometimes completely eliminating the original problem.
