  1. More Than Usability: The Four Elements of User Experience, Part I

    Eliciting Desired Behavior

    Designing for business success

    Some people mistakenly use the terms user experience and usability almost interchangeably. However, usability is increasingly being used to refer specifically to the ease with which users can complete their intended tasks, and is closely associated with usability testing. Therefore, many perceive usability to be a rather tactical aspect of product design. In contrast, UX professionals use the term user experience much more broadly, to cover everything ranging from ease of use to user engagement to visual appeal. User experience better captures all of the psychological and behavioral aspects of users’ interactions with products.

    To help define the objectives and scope of user experience efforts, as well as enable their meaningful measurement, I would like to propose a conceptual framework that describes four distinct elements of user experience, as shown in Figure 1, and how they interact with one another in driving better product designs.

  2. The Intersection of Data Visualization and UX Design

    March 20, 2023

    In the digital age, data is a critical component of our daily lives. It informs our decision-making and drives innovation. On the other hand, UX design is crucial to creating easy-to-use, user-friendly products and services—essentially creating coherent user interfaces that look and feel good.

    But what happens when these two fields collide? Can the user experience and data work together to create meaningful experiences for users? In this article, I’ll share my thoughts on this interesting conjunction of ideas and help you to understand how you can use them to create an impact. Read More

    Imagining a world without consumerism is a very difficult exercise. For a very long time, we’ve all been immersed in a socio-economic system that is geared toward maximizing the purchasing and ownership of goods. But imagining a future in which online shopping would be no more—at least not in the frantic, addictive form it has taken over the last decade—would be an interesting speculative experiment for a UX designer today.

    However, after all, this might not be such a useless a stretch of the imagination as one might think. On Black Friday in November 2023, the French government launched a campaign to warn people off impulsive shopping to “save the planet and their finances.” [1] Plus, the ongoing climate-change debate is becoming rife with calls to rethink our consumer behaviors. So let’s suspend our rational judgment for a moment to envision a future that would be very different from what we know today. What could the digital landscape look like in a post-consumerist world? What could we take from such a vision to make today’s Web a better place? Read More
