I am in the middle of a project where we handle some personal information, such as users addresses. Obviously we don't want to display a users address to someone other than that user. Now I'm looking for ways to "obfuscate" the address in a way that makes it obvious to the right person that the address displayed is her address, but not for others.
I want to point your attention to our new conference on Mobile Experience Design & Usability ... called MobX (http://mobxcon.org).
Yeah, I know - Barcelona-Berlin is not exactly around the corner :) But hey: it's still Europe, right? We have invited super interesting speakers from Uganda, Australia, USA ... and they all come to join us in Berlin on Nov 18, 2011 (workshops on Nov 17) for an awesome one day high speed conference.
When it comes to to finding a job in the user experience industry, there's a lot of heartache. There are the confusing acronyms (IxD, UX, IA, etc.), and the job descriptions (like "wireframe") that mean different things to different people. How does a person transition into the field? Are you selling yourself short? How many years of experience do you need? And how much should these jobs pay?
My cleint wants me to perform a mulitple channel usability test, where we might have someone print a boarding pass on the web, go to a kiosk to print a luggage tag, and use their mobile device to pick their seat. I think it is best to do this kind of scenario type testing, where I can view the person.
Has anyone ever done a test like this before? What advice do you have for me?
I'm designing a mobile application and M site. We currently are using round circle iconography to denote specific user interactions and sections of the site. I'd like to reuse these icons visually, but then have them as rounded corner rectangle icons. My gut reaction and decision for this is that it fits more with the icon paradigm (for the most part) with iphone and Android apps and devices.
This being said, I need some research to back up my claim. A colleague is wondering how I came to my initial decision and i need research to point to.
At Bestica, nation's leading User Experience staffing company, we thus are in the process of revamping our website to convey our value proposition better to the UX community at large.
Thus, we were wondering if having testimonials from our clients and candidates on our websiite homepage be helpful to instill trust to the UX community in our services, or if it wouldn't really have any major affect to the viewers coming to our website.
Your kind suggestions on this matter will be highly appreciated.
HIVE 2011 is a one-day conference that explores the role of design in tech. The inaugural event produced by AIGA Seattle will take place in Redmond, WA at the Microsoft Conference Center on Friday, Sept. 16th, 2011 from 10am - 5pm. Whether you’re a designer, developer, or a founder, there's something in this conference just for you. We have a ton of great speakers and topics, but we're also working hard to provide a great framework for local UX professionals to engage with tech managers and bridge the communication gap to improve the products and services we build.
