I like reading useful articles about the current UX and design trends, as well as to research other talented UX/UI designers for potential collaboration or just for some inspiration. The last few years have been a massive step for UX Design and I believe that the job of the web designer has never changed and evolved so much in such a short period of time, as it did this year.
I’ve shortlisted some of the best UX quotes I came across recently. Enjoy!
Design may impress, but content hooks users.
Design tools that maintain quality of connection between designers, developers, and other makers will be on the rise.
Effective UX designers separate their own personal preferences from their design. They understand they’re designing for users that think and behave differently than they do – and a UX designer’s skill can be measured in how well they can empathise with personalities other than their own.
User experience is about solving problems and helping the user meet their goal.
When designing for interaction, Designers should ask: Why do users want to undertake the interaction in the first place? and What are the possible set of circumstances that lead the user to exhibit such behaviour. Understanding this motivation allows us to unpick user behaviours, craft better interactions and optimise to achieve both user and business goals.
Your design should always be telling a story. And that story needs to be told from the user’s perspective—not the business’s perspective.
And that’s something timeless that I always try to follow with all my project by the brilliant German industrial designer Dieter Rams.
Good Design Makes A Product Understandable: It clarifies the product’s structure. Better still, it can make the product clearly express its function by making use of the user’s intuition. At best, it is self-explanatory.
