  • Posted to User Research is Overrated, Feb 19, 2017

    It was part of our UX/Product Design package: 2–6 weeks of up-front user research.

    I think one of the big divides people don't talk about enough in the design world is the difference between design agencies, who are always looking for new methodologies and angles to sell to their customers, and in-house design teams or individual freelancers, who usually just need to Get Stuff Done.

    It's kind of funny reading about fast-moving, don't-overthink-it "design sprints" promoted as some kind of breakthrough, when that's just how most small companies and startup operate out of necessity and lack of resources anyway…

    I don't even know if you can call these "marketing campaigns"… at this point as a MailChimp customer I'm basically paying their employees to work on fun side projects. Good for them, I guess…

  • Posted to Flat Design Decreases User Efficiency - Kate Meyer, in reply to Marc Edwards , Jan 31, 2017

    I think it was a pretty genius move by Apple.

    1. Pioneer a new confusing design style.
    2. Wait as everybody else copies them.
    3. Be the first to suddenly give up flat design.

    Ta-da! You're now the only company on the market with sensible UIs!

    They just need to get started on Phase 3. Any day now, Apple…

    I don't really care whether it's light or dark, but can we have larger UI elements please?

    I'm really looking forward to the episode where they discuss the best way to design newsletter sign-up forms for maximum conversion.

    I'd love to see a version of this that isn't slow and confusing. That concept would work really well for a photography portfolio, for example.

    I think it's ok, but there are a ton of areas for improvements. Their UI is confusing, the templates are pretty ugly… I don't know, maybe it's just me.
