A deep dive into the map apps rivalry.

Article by Peter Ramsey
Apple Maps vs Google Maps

    • The breadth of data.
    • Better сontextualization of data.
    • Reliability partners for sourcing data.

The “designer’s gaze” has a huge impact on users’ perception — the way designers view and translate the world can have both intended and unintended consequences.

Article by Srishti Mehrotra
The Designer’s Gaze

• Now designers start adopting a very particular perspective, referred to as the designer’s gaze, through which they begin to view their work and the wider world. The author speculates on the concept of the “designer’s gaze” and how much control over users it has.

• We are aware that many of our current issues are a result of the fixes we found for earlier issues. That’s why it’s vital to find a balance between intended and unintended consequences as a designer.

• In order to contribute insights to our work that go beyond those framed by flows and personas, we must seek out opportunities to listen to the world around us. That’s the key to equity design.

  • The author shares some ways to expand requests for evaluative research into research with generative insights.
  • Here are some tips that might help you conduct your qualitative research session:

    • Ask them about their favorite and least favorite parts of their job, to walk me through a typical day.
    • Try to orient the concept test around them.
    • Ask stupid questions when people react to a concept.
