2) Deliver Transparency
3) Use Feedback as a Currency
4)Make Human Connections

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. Adds weight to how VOGUE uses alliteration to create powerful marketing as discussed in 8 Visual Marketing Tips from Vogue https://www.haikudeck.com/visual-marketing-8-tips-from-vogue-art-and-design-presentation-QPRubvrcT8 and on Scoop.it http://sco.lt/8qjz7Z

Not UX-related per se... But a very good and relevant read!

Answer (1 of 15): This is a complex question, as the answer will depend on the size and culture of the organization and its maturity in terms of both Agile and UX adoption. A startup where the developers are generally familiar with the principles of good UX design and have adopted Agile from th...
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.

A glimpse into the future of ALL of our Experiences!
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.
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!
