    "My current focus is to grow my community on Dribbble"

    This should NOT be your focus.

    IMO, your focus should be working on the relationships with current and past clients - these are your most valuable assets right now.

    How?

    Go back to them with ways to improve their bottom line. Did you design their website? Great - they might also need help with EDMs, social media artwork, heck they might even need some print work done. Have they thought about A/B testing the homepage? Provide alternatives. They'll quickly realise you are more valuable to them than they originally expected.

    Do the dame with past clients. Touch base and see how things are going with the work you did for them. You'll be amazed at the outcome of a quick email or phone call.

    In time you'll find that their referrals will be far more valuable than your Dribbble following.

  • Posted to Looking for feedback! Testing prototypes for website navigation, Nov 03, 2017

    I kinda feel this test was a bit flawed given the lack of context for the nav. For example:

    a) I had no intention of clicking the Request Demo button because I knew nothing of the product

    b) I couldn't evaluate the categorisation of the nav items because I couldn't see any other content

    I actually spent the most time trying to figure out which nav item had a menu behind it - this was because there was no indication which items had a drop down vs the ones that didn't.

    Also what's the difference between Free trial and Request demo?

    Also the scrolling within the frames was a real distraction.

    When usability testing, it really helps to give the test participant a goal or objective.

    The copy at the top (which I doubt many people would have read) simply stated: "Please get a feel for both navigations by playing around with both prototypes"

    This really isn't helpful in instructing the user on what they are supposed to do.

    Also, your survey didn't allow me to to select 'Neither' in any of the Navigation A vs B questions - be careful with the results you get here - it might not be telling the whole story (hence why I replied here and not through the form).

    Not shitting on your designs at all - just highlighting that you may want to think about how you've conducted this survey and the potential of the results being misleading.

    He lost me when he compared the UI of Google maps to Photoshop and an airline cockpit. Apples and oranges. Stupid.

    There are no words to describe how profound of an experience OP has had. Don't knock it until you've tried it.

    Understand the true meaning of this and you'll start on a journey where there is no coming back from...

  • Posted to Dude Calendar. It's a new calendar. For dudes., Jul 10, 2017

    I think the idea has real potential and might even take off.

    I kinda feel a lot of people have missed the point. It's not a gender thing at all... or is it?!

    All I see is a calendar/reminder service that can potentially easily aggregate my interests and let me know in advance when they are going to happen.

    Shit that - as a dude - I might wanna be reminded about: - when my team's game is about to start - friends and family birthdays - my next Craft Beer MeetUp event - upcoming UX or design conferences - when my next ball game is scheduled - etc etc

    Then consider this...

    Shit that - as a chick* - I might wanna be reminded about: - when my team's game is about to start - friends and family birthdays - my next Craft Beer MeetUp event - upcoming UX or design conferences - when my next ball game is scheduled - etc etc

    Get it?!

    If the integration can be accomplished with 3rd party services, this could be great.

  • Posted to Experimenting with a navigation-less navigation, any thoughts?, May 18, 2017

    Don't worry about people are saying here or in Dribbble... it means NOTHING.

    1. Make a prototype
    2. Test it with as many of your target users as you can
    3. Therein is the answer

    The last step - before showing the client - is to run this past your devs to see how you might resolve some of the potential issues Jan Semler raised.
