The 2014 international Design for Experience awards program, presented by UX Magazine, is now accepting applications and recommendations.

We are excited to announce that the international Design for Experience (DfE) awards are back! This year’s program, which UX Magazine presents in partnership with DfE, will showcase the best work done in 2014, with the call for entries open now. Do you know of any individuals, organizations, or products that demonstrate a thorough understanding of experience design? Submit a recommendation using the form on the right.

The DfE awards don’t just recognize excellence for its own sake. The program draws valuable lessons from leading examples of mastery in UX and related fields, which become valuable resource material for the experience design community. Last year’s inaugural program recognized excellence in experience design from 2013, and we’re still exploring the results in an ongoing series of articles.

As UX Magazine readers know, there’s been plenty of activity in our industry over the past year, and we’ve got some new categories that reflect the trajectory of experience design, including Building Trust, Advanced Experience Ecosystem, and Disruptive Experience. We’ve also added some categories in response to the expansive nature of experience design, like Digital Media Experience and Enterprise or Business Solution.

Many of last year’s judges have joined us once again, and we’re excited to have some new luminaries in the mix, including UX Mag contributors, Joseph Dickerson, Tyler Wells, and Peter Morville. We’re also being joined by one of UX Magazine’s original founders, Alex Schleifer. Our judges want to know what can be learned from your work, and how it can advance our understanding of best, leading practices in UX. The focus on learning is key in the selection of award winners.

We’ll be sharing more information about the program in the coming weeks, so sign up for email updates as well.

Apply for an award on or before January 3rd, and take advantage of a discounted application fee!

The road to a good customer experience can be full of potholes. How do you navigate such a treacherous path? One key way is through product thinking.

What is product thinking and why does it matter?
  • Product thinking is key to shaping the best customer experience possible as it helps to identify problems and solve them.
  • By providing a holistic perspective on a product it differs from design thinking and reveals the real product value for customers.
  • Because of its strategic importance, every team member should hone product thinking skills. It’s more than a working framework, it’s a mindset, a culture of customer experience.

“Holistic design” sounds like a new flashy trend that’s used without a real meaning behind it. However, the term was present long before UX design was born. Nowadays, when we use “product design” for digital products and “industrial design” for things, “holistic design” makes a comeback to UX design.

What Is Holistic Design? The Future of UX or a Buzzword?
  • To apply holistic design principles is to consider different facets of a product, stakeholders’ interests and the environment within which it functions.
  • Best practices of holistic design consist of involving stakeholders, being sustainable, creating an ecosystem, and, last but not least, going beyond digital.
  • When it comes to holistic design in UX, it’s essential to apply design thinking and reflect on the design system, make sure that solutions are inclusive and consistently invest in UX research.
