Great article.  As it says, the key thing is to know *your* customers.  For some sites, customers are not visiting on the go.  Research is now showing that a large proportion of mobile users visit sites while at home, often while watching TV.

Cognititve biases are often linked to emotion. I ran into this article as I was looking for insights about emotional design. I thought it was a good catch with real examples.

I hope you appreciate it too.

Interesting article with simple but powerful points about cognitive biases to consider in digital design. I strongly believe that embracing psychology to identify user needs and wants is a road to successful experiences. Designing useful and usable products and services definitely require an understanding of human behavior.

Interaction design: What we know and what we need to know | ACM Interactions | Expertiential Design | Scoop.it

The success of design-oriented companies like Apple means that everyone understands the importance of interfaces. But what are these external indicators of success based on? What have we achieved, what do we know, and why are others interested in what we do? Where should we go from here? Here, I first outline three successes: transformative technology, the importance of experience, and the user-centric design process. I then argue that now we need to build on these successes by taking a more principled approach to what we do.

There is no doubt that the field of HCI has advanced so quickly in the past few years as we have seen tremendous focus on the digital experience. I agree that moving forward means focusing on transformational technology experiences and better understanding of successful outcomes of new technology interactions.

Hans's curator insight, July 23, 2013 5:28 AM

Designers have tried to mimic the real world in order to create intuitive digital experiences that are easy to understand. But lately I read several articles mentioning how the digital medium is struggling to find it's own authentic design language, just like a teenage rebel trying to find a comfortable identity. From a usability point of view I see advantages with a purely digital design language, like the flat web design trend, because it allows us to focus on the content, it's readable and it's easy to load and view across devices. However, I also see disadvantages from a usability point of view since we have a legacy of mental models from interacting with an organic environment where textures, materials and shapes have certain abilities that are constant, stones are stones and act like stones, trees are trees and act like trees and so on. In contrast, nothing is constant in the digital world, all we can do is to define design patterns, like swiping down will update the content and a semi transparent box is clickable, so the question is how well we can define it.

Terry Patterson's comment, July 23, 2013 10:20 AM
Excellent insight, Hannes. Following what you mention, I have to wonder if deciding on design patterns for consistent experiences is the best way to focus our efforts as experience designers, or if it is better to adapt our data displays to however the user experiences the world and goes about obtaining data for everything they do. In this conundrum, do we over analyze and make things more complex for the user, or do we step outside of the interface paradigms and observe the user decide how they go about interacting with digital data? Personally, I'm enamored with the glass user interfaces (not Google glass) but the interface concepts on glass surfaces (from Corning a couple of years back: http://www.youtube.com/user/CorningIncorporated
The thing that strikes me here is that the medium matters and the interface matters, there are still design patterns that make these interfaces work, but the content can also be "unleashed" if you will from the interface and re-purposed, transferred easily and called at will. I don't have answers, but I believe like you that we can all shape the future of design patterns for the digital layer that we now have in our lives. Viva the device agnostic era!
Happy Designing!
Hans's comment, July 24, 2013 5:47 AM
First of all, Corning's interface made by glass is really awesome :) I definitely think design will be more organic and ubiquitous in the future. You made some good points. Maybe consistency through time is not the best way to design usable experiences since the only constant in the world is change, maybe the best way is to always, always keep up to date with how users interact with the world around interfaces and incorporate it into design work. And I totally agree with your device agnostic approach where content is free and not locked to any specific interface.

Design Ethnography for Lean Teams

Hans's curator insight, July 10, 2013 2:45 PM

Lean production is a popular management philosophy that attempts to reduce resources spent on work that will not generate value to the end users. I have a clear mission as a designer that is aligned with most lean principles, that is to make the digital world a better place... for people! But if we want to design for people we must first understand people, so in order to create great user experiences in lean design teams we must starts to do some great ethnography. Here is an inspiring slideshow from TLCLabs that should convince any product manager.

Terry Patterson's comment, July 16, 2013 12:34 AM
Great find, Hannes! The study of HCI never underestimates user research, doesn't matter how lean. It is extremely important to understand why we have to do this. Great designers know they design for others, not for themselves.
