Lessons in #CustExp @Uber | UX Design | Scoop.it
Customers aren’t willing to suffer through badly designed experiences anymore. Case in point: the cab industry. Since the public hackney coach service was launched in London in the 17th Century — all the way through to today — the experience has literally gone unchanged: 1) Riders hail cabs (coaches back then) on the side of ...

Eric_Determined / Eric Silverstein's curator insight, April 10, 12:33 AM

All traditional industries should rethink their ways. The key is to  invest in disruption at each customer experience pain-point:


1) Remove Friction Points


2) Deliver Transparency


3) Use Feedback as a Currency


4)Make Human Connections


Technology that was seen as Star Trek next gen one day — will pass those thinking this will never happen to them next

Does Your Web Design SING? New Neuromarketing Research Suggests It Should

Does Your Web Design SING? New Neuromarketing Research Suggests It Should | UX Design | Scoop.it

How does your web design SOUND? Strange question, but new neuromarketing research suggests we mentally sound out words we read. Implications for web designers are significant and new.

Most web designers care about how their design LOOKS, but maybe we should worry about how our sites SOUND too. Sound is a HUGE learning aid and one easy to overlook as we focus on colors, font and line.

Hannes's curator insight, April 4, 2:28 PM

Interaction design is not all about usability, the final goal is always to attract users and make them satisfied. So how do we utilize technology in order to seduce human beings? 1. Minimize the cognitive load by mapping users' mental models and ability to associate. 2. Trigger positive emotional responses by finding the moment that matters and setting the stage for fun and engaging interactions.

Going Beyond Convention In Website Design - Examples

Going Beyond Convention In Website Design - Examples | UX Design | Scoop.it
Over the past few years, we have gotten used to certain standards in web design. In order to make a lasting impression on your visitors, you need to build experiences that go beyond those of a plain, usable website. This does not mean usability has become any less important. It just takes on a different role in web design, now forming the basis for a great user experience for examples of great usability website.

Agree, some conventions are needed and expected others can be broken down and twisted into new shapes. Trick is knowing what you must do like everyone else and what you can afford to take some risks with in your website design.

massimo scalzo's curator insight, April 12, 3:19 AM

Developing a website goes beyond the simple usability. "Experience" needs also the right attire.... Appearance.  Ease of use is not the only thing important, aesthetics counts too!
