Robin Good's curator insight, January 30, 2014 2:37 PM



Niice is a new search engine that specializes in retrieving high-quality images from a curated set of design sites which include for now BehanceIllustration ageDesignspirationSiteInspire & Fonts In Use.


Niice can be used as a visual trigger to find interesting and inspiring visuals on just about any theme or topic. 


The curated nature of its sources and of the images allowed into the index guarantees that your focus area will always be filled by visually interesting ideas.


I tried a few simple searches, and was quite inspired by the quality of the results. I'd say truly inspiring.

My favorite quote here is' I provide the tools, its up to you what you do with them'. This video certainly had me rethinking PowerPoint. Clearly I need to learn to use it better. This was a very skillful presentation that was created only using PowerPoint.

UX 101: What Is User Experience? [infographic]

UX 101: What Is User Experience? [infographic] | Wepyirang | Scoop.it

When it comes to design, user experience is one of the key things.


According to this infographic, 68% of users leave because of poorly designed websites and 62% of customers base future purchases on past experiences. These stats alone are clear enough that UX (User Experience) isn’t something that can be taken lightly. The life and blood of your business might very well depend on this factor alone.


Have a look at this infographic to learn more about what User Experience is all about.

Ennio Martignago's curator insight, August 2, 2013 7:42 AM

Chissà quanti IT manager considerano che l'impatto delle piattaforme in azienda dipende dal fatto che il "68% degli utenti abbandona a causa della scarsa qualità nel design della UI mentre il 62% di essi basa le proprie scelte sulle esperienze passate"? Di certo una valutazione di questo genere influisce sulla fiducia dei clienti interni verso i propri IT manager. Non siamo più negli anni '80 o '90 quando bastava buttare lì qualche terminologia tecnica per zittire tutti. Oggi vi è una conoscenza basata sul confronto di altre proposte, su quelle adottate a casa propria e su pacchetti tutto compreso testabili facilmente dall'utilizzatore finale.

10 Tips To Build A Responsive Website [Infographic]

10 Tips To Build A Responsive Website [Infographic] | Wepyirang | Scoop.it

Want your website to look great on smartphones, tablets, PCs and even TVs? Learn how to go fully responsive.


The Web and the mobile browsers remain one of the top ways that users interact with websites and if they have trouble on their smartphone, there is a good chance they are not coming back.

That’s where responsive design can help.

Responsive design is a concept where you build your website once and then format it so it can adapt to any screen size that accesses it. Designers use HTML5 and CSS to build the sites and set parameters so the content will resize itself whether the user is in vertical or horizontal viewing mode, on a tablet, desktop or smartphone or even a screen as large as a television...

There are some amazing examples of how colors actually affect our purchasing decisions. After all, sight is the strongest developed sense in most human beings. It’s only natural that 90% of an assessment for trying out a product is made by color alone.


So how do colors really affect us, and what is the science of colors in marketing, really? As we strive to make improvements to online products, studying this phenomenon is key. Find some of the latest, most interesting research on the subject at the article link...

Responsive & Web 3.0
Put aside the SEO benefits, creating responsive design is beyond important because the future is about having your content look great no matter what type of devices is receiving.

Responsive design also forces a new framework on your content marketing THINKING. Your content marketing begins to get away from the static and more toward the dynamic.

Since the future of web design is dynamic making this move now has many benefits.
