Leading By Design

Leading By Design | Expertiential Design | Scoop.it

Through my involvement in Cooper U’s Design Leadership course, I’ve learned techniques to repeat the success of these leaders. These skills and practices are vital to selling a vision, uniting a team, and achieving organizational consent. The following overview touches on some of my favorites — which are simple, yet powerfully effective.

At GDS we don’t have a ‘UX team’ and no one person has a job title that includes the term ‘UX’. We have designers and researchers who work as part of multidisciplinary, agile teams and who practice user centred design (UCD).

Hans's curator insight, November 24, 2013 9:49 AM

Vision is the main perceptual system used on the web. How people scan content and decide where to focus their attention is essential to understand in order to create good UX. Eye-tracking research indicates that web users have developed patterns of visual perception. This article presents four design rules to consider based on those findings.

Experience Design is a Perspective, not a Discipline

Experience Design is a Perspective, not a Discipline | Expertiential Design | Scoop.it

Simply put, businesses don’t get the full return on their investment in design if the outcome is only a momentary emotional response from customers. Any long-term positive emotional response has to have a strong value component.

Fight the dark side of Lean UX with the Experience Canvas

Fight the dark side of Lean UX with the Experience Canvas | Expertiential Design | Scoop.it

The Experience Canvas is a framework for project teams of any size to ensure that the end result – whether it’s a minimum viable product (MVP), a new feature roll-out, even a process or other business initiative – is thorough, considered, user-centred and lean, without compromising on flexibility. The emphasis is on the experience to be achieved by that result; a minimum viable experience (MVE), if you will.

Terry Patterson's curator insight, September 23, 2013 3:11 PM

This article highlights what people in the user experience world already know. In short, we have to expect constant change and adapt to the new modes of delivery and user expectations. System design knowledge and confidence is a given for today's movers and shakers in this field, and learning, well, is the only constant.

5 Ways How Whitespace Affects The User Experience

5 Ways How Whitespace Affects The User Experience | Expertiential Design | Scoop.it

Whitespace is becoming an increasingly popular design element for websites. The termwas originally coined in print design and describes “the absence of text and graphics”. At the same time, whitespace is more than an empty space. It’s also “the overall airiness or density of the page including space between lines of type (leading), text offset around graphics, size of margins, and heaviness or lightness of the fonts”.

Great post if not for the faint of heart:

Context Aware
Google Now caused two shifts in the context-aware space by 1) Providing all the right data, and 2) Taking design very seriously. Beyond the interface, context-aware computing calls for a deep examination of user behavior and complex interaction patterns. This blend of data and design is the essence of the context-aware computing trend as it relates to user experience.

This is the beginning of "semantic web" ad an article well worth reading more than once.

And what better way to do this than bringing together the best of approaches and methodologies that have evolved in the fields of UX and CX (and perhaps others?) and plan a corporate strategy and the associated systems that are truly “customer-focused.” That to me could be the Holy Grail for 21st Century Business and the answer to the question of why customer experience and user experience matter.

Hans's curator insight, October 23, 2013 3:49 PM

The web is a place overcrowded by content and different patterns to navigate. At the same time we use smaller screens more often. Consequently, I think it's essential to make the users feel in control.  But how? Transitions are important components of good interaction design since every change of state might have an impact on the user experience.. Implementing transitions wisely will not only give users valuable feedback about the consequences of their actions, it will also stimulate the procedual memory and improve the learnability. Here is a useful article with examples of best practice.
