Designing for Context: The Multiscreen Ecosystem

Designing for Context: The Multiscreen Ecosystem | Expertiential Design | Scoop.it

To create applications and systems that are easy to use, it is crucial to understand the user and the context in which the app will be used. Understanding the context helps design systems that anticipate use cases at a relevant time of use. The more unobtrusive and transparent the experience is at the time of use, the better the design. This means the user does not have to think about the device he is using, changes in the environment, or changes in context, and can rely on great functionality and ease of use independent of his situation.

 

In traditional systems, the context of use did not change much. Whether the use was in the office or at a personal computer at home, the surroundings were similar and there was no need to adapt to different environments. In today's world, smartphones, tablets, laptops, and smart TVs provide different services in different contexts. These services are consumed by a variety of users and require different interaction models, use cases, and planning. For this reason, UX professionals should first design for the context of use in order to provide better experiences and ultimately enhance the intended purpose of the product.

Defining And Applying Personas to UX Design | Webdesigntuts+

Defining And Applying Personas to UX Design | Webdesigntuts+ | Expertiential Design | Scoop.it

Listen up people!! This is an AMAZING overview of how to get your mental models started and done right! Persona development is the key to designing satisfying user experiences... You cannot build a successful product if you don't get your brain wrapped around all possible behavioral motivations of The User, as well as the cultural ethnography of The Client!

 

Personas have long been integrated with UX documentation. They help us create fictional users, representative of our real users, which we can reference throughout our creative process to inform and validate our design and UX. Let’s examine how we set up a persona and then utilize it throughout our design process.

Form-Field Validation: The Errors-Only Approach | Smashing UX Design

Form-Field Validation: The Errors-Only Approach | Smashing UX Design | Expertiential Design | Scoop.it
Error pages for form-field validation are dreadful. You’ve just filled out 20 form fields, yet you get the same bloated page thrown back in your face because a single field failed to validate.

 

This is a good article on form-field validation. The author starts with an example form and then walks the reader through alternate methods of validation and what each of them address, enhance, or 'fix'. The title refers to a model that displays only the fields that are in error to the user after submitting the form. My personal favorite it the last method which give the user text hints and feedback as they are filling out the form. Not a form expert yet? If Christian Holst keeps writing pieces like this we soon will be. And true to all the well written articles - the comments are as informative as the article so don't forget to pursue them as well.

Recently, Sharp Corporation (Sharp) and frog jointly announced the launch of “Feel UX”, a new Android smartphone experience designed to radically redefine the platform's interaction paradigm.

 

Interesting take on solidifying the user experience for a platform that has traditionally embraced disparity over unification... And I cannot help but thing this UI feels Jobsian in nature! There is a reason Apple's consistent user experience has one a veritable legion of fans and Android has been synomimous with "hits and misses."
