The Best User Experience Design Links Every Week

Hi all,

As a UX Designer, I’m constantly reading UX articles, playing with new tools, watching videos, and looking at amazing portfolios – I wanted an outlet to share other than social networks. Lately, I’ve been inspired by other curated daily and weekly emails and wanted to create one dedicated to user experience design. If you're interested, please sign up:

UX Design Weekly

Also, if you have a great portfolio, article or resource to share for future issues, please let me know.

UX at emails

There are lots of discussions of the usability of the email clients. But not much about the email itself. For example let's discuss the 'disclaimer'. I understand that some companies have concerns and needs it. But it is not useful in a thread and as a customer I don't need to read this disclaimer everytime. Are there any examples to make it better?

is there an official difference between a grid and a table pattern?


This morning my team reviewed this very nice article about free project management apps - http://www.smashingapps.com/2010/09/22/awesome-yet-free-web-apps-to-make-project-managers-lives-easier.html .

When we got down to "Project Bubble", an interaction designer stated that this was a very good use of a grid. When I asked how that differed from the ones above he said becuase it had headers.

best practice for security questions

Hi there

Can anyone point me in the direction of sample security questions that could
be used to verify a user's identity if they don't have an email address and
have forgotten a password? EG Mother's maiden name, first school etc etc.

I think best practice would be to let a users set the question themselves,
but in this case we need to offer a set of questions for the user to choose

Thanks for the tips,

Decision Tree vs Decision Table

I am currently working on a project where we need a method of creating conditional logic and execution. We are currently stuck between two types of implementations.

The first is more of a decision tree implementation. Each condition has a yes and a no clause and the statements can be nested. (decision-tree.png)
