[PLUG] Webinar on Recruiting Users for Research w/Dana Chisnell

Hello everyone,

I don't often promote our events on this list (figuring you're sick of
hearing from me as it is), but because there's been a nice thread about
paying testing participants, I thought I'd mention today's UIE Virtual

For those of you who <snark>still believe that it's important to get
feedback from your users during the design process</snark>, you might be
wondering how you recruit these folks to be part of your research.

In today's online webinar, Dana Chisnell will be talking about the
recruitment process, from soup to nuts, including some advanced techni

[EVENT] IxDA Austin // Tues, May 19 // Just Show Me a Freaking Picture

To “think visually” is to transform complex, text-based knowledge or verbal
language into engaging and memorable visuals so the information can be
better represented, understood and remembered.Visual thinking is relevant
today because the density of information we deal with is the equivalent of
being soaked with a firehose of data - and it’s not showing any signs of

Unfortunately, research indicates that when our brains find themselves in
situations of great complexity, they start to shut down. It's like being
caught in a gigantic hairball.

Logo for android app.

Hello guys,

my task is to create a logo 48x48 pixels to be used in an android app.

Its for an energy saving organization, so I am thinking about using green and yellow colours.

Also I wanted the logo to be recognizable and fancy for a small screen. (mobile phone)

I have attached a few prototypes and wanted your opinions.

I hope you will take time in commenting on the logos.

Switching through multiple "primary" phones for testing

Hi All,

I'm a User Experience Designer. While my primary phone is an iPhone 5, I'm curious to really understand the user behaviors consistent with some android devices (perhaps even extend to windows and blackberry as well). I've been able to test various apps on these devices through my company but I know to truly understand what the user goes through, I should adopt an adroid phone as my primary phone for a month and treat it as real users do.

I have created a variety of wireframe templates from scratch in Adobe
Illustrator. I keep them in my library - when I need them I can modify for
future use.

Need Help on Election Results Website & Mobile Service



I would appreciate any help by way of links to any online resource or
documents that describe models of best practices for designing a

results, starting on the day of elections all the way to the final
count, for the upcoming May elections in the Philippines.

The results will be for all the candidates for th 14 national
positions and 17,662 local positions.

[Iai-Members] navigation structures and mouseover vs click triggers


I'm sorry I don't have any research to support these comments, but on
a gut instinct level, I don't think clicking in the top navigation to
activate the drop-down menus is good usability. Especially if
sometimes when you click, you get taken to another page.

I assume that on the pages with the drop-down, you'd have to repeat
the parent page name if there is one, so that users can then click to
go there. This sounds confusing.

First post: Hello, a question, and some online interactive 3D demonstrations
