Improving UX/UI in Advertising

Improving UX/UI in advertising has been a challenge for many folks for a long time, and I wanted to see if anyone could provide good resources on the subject. In addition, I'd love to hear what people think about this topic.

Here are a couple articles I found interesting thus far:

Maximum permissible delay between user action and feedback from Television

Hi,

I am working on television EPGs. I was wondering about the maximum permissible delay between a user action and the feedback from Television.

Eg: User presses ChannelUP button on the remote control. TV responds to the action by changing channel. What should be the maximum allowed delay between this for a good user experience?

Jakob Nielsen talks about 3 response times - http://www.nngroup.com/articles/response-times-3-important-limits/

I am not sure whether it is applicable for TV watching scenario too.

Universities offering Interaction Design masters program

Hello everyone,

I'm Adil Bawany, from Karachi, Pakistan, a CS undergraduate, serving the local IT industry for the last 2 years, with some experience as a 2D graphic design freelancer and owner of a small portfolio http://adbawany.deviantart.com/gallery/

I wish to pursue further studies in the Interaction Design field. Ideal would be a masters program that is a cross/mixture of my creative/aesthetic side, and my technical skill.

Meeting Real–World Needs with Pixel-Scale Systems

Aside from random rantings about philosophy, I have been making some articles on tactics. Lately, I've started a sort of series on tools. The overview: http://uxmatters.com/mt/archives/2013/06/tools-for-mobile-ux-design.php with all the usual suspects like whiteboards, Post-Its, paper and html.

What are the details on contract IxD/UX work? (does it even exist)

While I was at an internship over the summer, a client recommended that I start seeking contract work while I finish up my MFA. (as opposed to my previous plan of taking a bunch of internships to learn different skills.. I'm told more than one internship can make it look like you didn't learn anything or your skills aren't up to par for a real position)

Wizard - Button placement

Hi,

Need your thoughts on where should we place the wizard buttons like "Next", "Prev" and "Save".

We have seen that there are wizards where the buttons are placed at the bottom, and in some they are placed at the top of the page. I am designing a wizard and need to validate where to place the buttons: at the top of the page or at the bottom.

Thanks,
Archana
