There’s much to be learned about UX by looking at the aggregate of published articles, or job openings.

We find a lot of interesting articles from other sites and publications, and share some of the better ones through our email list. And some of the other sites, Smashing Magazine particularly, regularly share links to our articles, so we think it’s time to return the favor.

Articles from around the Web

Redefining Hick’s Law
Jason Gross writing for Smashing Magazine

The Ugly Truth: Why Beautiful Wins in 2012
Edward Aten of Swift.fm writing for GigaOM

How To Deliver Exceptional Client Service
Jeremy Girard writing for Smashing Magazine
We often hear companies, including Web agencies, boast about how they provide exceptional client service. But how do they define exceptional?

A Snapshot of the UX Job Market

There’s much to be learned about UX by looking at the aggregate of many things. Sometimes you learn more about UX trends by looking at the aggregate of what people are choosing to write about than you would by reading any individual blog post or article.

We think the same is also true of UX job postings. You may not be job hunting right now, but it’s still interesting to look at recent job postings in aggregate to see where the jobs are, what the positions are called, and what sorts of companies have the openings. And although you may not be looking for a job, you may know someone who is.

Stop frustrating your users. Invest in notification strategy instead.

The UX of Notifications | How to Master the Art of Interrupting
  • As part of UX, notifications are key to leading the user to a better interaction with the product. Therefore, notification strategy should have a central role in UX design.
  • A good starting point is to create a user’s journey map and identify major pain points. This should serve to understand when and where notifications might be of help, rather than create confusion.
