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.

Wireframes vs. Prototypes: What's the Difference? | UX Design | Scoop.it

A wireframe is not the same as a prototype but even seasoned design professionals can sometimes get the two terms mixed up.

It’s time to set things straight once and for all, since (semantics aside) the difference between a wireframe and a prototype is actually quite substantial.

UX as Design Leadership

UX as Design Leadership | UX Design | Scoop.it

For those who believe that user experience can be handed off as a deliverable—likewireframes—this process might make a little sense. For UX practitioners, however, the end product is the user experience, so the UX team needs to be involved all along the way, up until the very end, ensuring the final product is the best experience it can be. The UX team can’t just pass off a concept and turn it loose. They have to stay involved. They have to lead, and not in the traditional authoritarian sense, but with humility and bycommunicating the importance of user-focused design to the entire project team.

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.
