I'm starting work on an intranet redesign project and am after some examples of good intranet design in the last few years (most examples I have found are 2002 and older). Public & financial sector examples would be a bonus. Any suggestions welcomed
Hi, I'm currently working as an Interaction Designer at an Email Marketing company where I'm also writing my thesis for my undergraduate (Bachelors) degree. The main goal of my research is to find if we can change certain aspects of email newsletter designs through personalization. We want to do this to create more interaction between sender and receiver of the newsletter (read: higher clickthrough rate and more conversions on the websites of our customers).
I currently work for a Fortune 500 company as a User Experience
Designer/Manager. I was brought in to help enhance the user experience
of certain applications both web and desktop. My problem is not many
people see the value of user experience. As with most public companies
they only care about the bottom line. UX is looked as an expense and not
an investment. I wanted to ask if anyone here had compelling data about
what Fortune 500 companies are spending on UX and the return on
investment they are seeing.
I was fairly intrigued by this little bit burried in a thread about the lack of employment opportunities for junior UX folk.
"Along with that, I would encourage you to broaden your search beyond
pure UX roles. BA roles, product manager roles and other roles in
technology, experience delivery, or an industry of interest can be a
great platform of experience on which to biuild a career."
I'm curious if anybody can expand on this. A few specific questions to get the ball rolling:
I have distilled the definition of prototyping, from a UX perspective, not a dictionary one. Anyway, it was part of a three part blog entry on my blog and I would be interested in your feedback and comments.
As a creative web designer, you will probably jobless in the near future; because variety of web layouts, iconography and interactivity has already invented and tested within the past 20 years. You may only experiment new graphic styles; but not more then that… Regardless, your boss, your customers or the users still demand on your innovations to be impressed, but it isn’t so easy as before.
