The Science of Happy Design

The Science of Happy Design | UX Design | Scoop.it
There's plenty of research on ways that technology negatively impacts our lives, yet very little on how design - an integral part of that technology - might positively impact us. Pamela Pavliscak, a speaker at the upcoming conference Madison + UX, shares a research project that shows how a positive design can benefit our overall happiness.

The Four Cardinal Sins Of UX Design
Forbes
It's almost a cliche, but good design often comes down to simply stepping aside. Too many tech companies seem to view their products as linear paths rather than open-ended sandboxes.

RETHINK Web Design: Unusual Web Navigations Inspire | AWWWARDS

RETHINK Web Design: Unusual Web Navigations Inspire | AWWWARDS | UX Design | Scoop.it
Beautiful Unusual Navigation Designs for Inspiration. Selection of Awwwards websites with a strong presence of unusual navigation. An effective navigation design is crucial for a website

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, June 26, 6:29 PM

Navigation feels old and moldy. There are few things MORE critical than navigation. We've moved from left nav sitting firmly in the "golden triangle" to horizontal top navigation.

Neither of these options inspire and both are feeling long in the tooth and stupid. The social / mobile web requires a RETHINK about navigation. Can we find ways to make very page a homepage?

Can navigation be more relevant and less middle of the road boring? Here are some navigation examples from AWWWARDS.com that don't solve the problem...yet. But the dialogue helps begin the process of reducing our dependency on static, boring, "has-been" ideas like left or horizontal nav.

Are you as surprised that navigation hasn't been on the "top changes" list for web design in 2014? Has to be on our 2015 list because every current option is BAD and getting worse.

Just today I got into a discussion that designing for digital wearables must certainly be the next frontier in the user experience design space. In my view, it is all about context - giving the user what they need with a  just-in-time approach.

That’s less obvious.
