  1. More generally, the web is dumbing down as the fight for attention hots up. Quality publishing is losing huge amounts of money, while sites like BuzzFeed spring up caring nothing about the content, only about hits, clicks and likes with their $(num) $(noun)s That Will Make You $(verb) headlines and articles that are nothing more than lists of things they’ve seen on Reddit. It’s publish and be damned, for all the wrong reasons. The age of Idiocracy is already here and the Daily Mail is the world’s number one online newspaper.

  2. There are few things wantrepreneurs (all due respect, I’m a recovering wantrepreneur myself) love to talk about more than running A/B tests.

    The belief seems to be that if they just keep testing, they will find the answer, and build the business of their dreams.

    Most of them are wrong. Many of their businesses would be better off if they didn’t run any A/B tests at all.

  3. One of my pet peeves in website usability design is forcing people to create unnecessary accounts. My recent purchase of some concert tickets from Ticketfly required me to make an account to buy them. For people who buy a lot of concert tickets, having an account may make a lot of sense. But for me, as someone who buys concert tickets at most once every year or two, having an account on a site that I will probably only use once is not only unnecessary, it's annoying.

  4. As a WordPress designer, you usually have to tackle many challenges along your way through a given project. But quite unfortunately, more often than not, those challenges don’t go away once you deliver the site to your client.

  8. I’m sure you’ve come across dozens, if not hundreds of image sliders or carousels (also called ‘rotating offers’). You might even like them. But the truth is that they’re conversion killers.

  9. As web designers or developers we often have a tendency to fall back on text to convey a message or instructions to an end user. Our thought process is that if we provide the necessary steps as written text, how can anyone mess it up? As useful as text can be, the approach is inherently flawed as text is often ignored or at best scanned, and inference or expected behaviour prove to be a more powerful force. Even if your process is straightforward, text becomes useless if the actions on the page infer something that is counter to it.

  11. We talked about the pros and cons of using native or web technologies to develop mobile applications, as well as why it's disappointing to imitate native UI and the "write once, run everywhere" lie. I think the time is ripe for me to write down what I think about UI design for mobile applications. I want to point out that my opinion on this topic has not only been shaped by my own experience, but without doubt also by other great developers and designers that I have talked to or that have written about this topic, most notably Majd Taby.

  12. While talking to the Associated Press during Wikipedia’s annual Wikimania conference in Haifa, Israel, the site’s founder Jimmy Wales acknowledged that his organization is ”scrambling to simplify what he called ‘convoluted’ editing templates that may be discouraging people from writing and editing Wikipedia’s entries.”

  13. There are many ways to design sign-up and log-in forms. Most designers are familiar with the conventional ways. But understanding and applying a few innovative techniques could make your forms simpler and more efficient to fill out. In this article, we’d like to present a couple of new ideas that might be useful for your next designs. Please notice that before using these techniques, you should make sure that they make sense in the context in which you are going to use them. We’d love to hear about your case-studies and usability tests that affirm or dismiss the suggestions proposed below.

  14. First it was smartphones integrating cameras. Could we be about to see the inverse - cameras integrating smartphone technology? That's the concept being explored by Seattle design company Artefact. They've come up with an intriguing prototype for a camera that incorporates smartphone technology - a.k.a. a SmartCam. Artefact claims that innovation has stalled in the camera industry, that there hasn't been much new in camera devices over the past 10 years. They're aiming to shake up the camera industry and are already talking to camera companies (and others) about implementing their vision. I spoke to Artefact's founders to learn more.

  15. In diesem Artikel geht es um die Frage, ob für eine datenschutzrechtliche Einwilligung ein Opt-In, also das Anhaken einer Checkbox (Kontrollkästchen in deutsch) notwendig ist. Die Frage ist nicht aus der Luft gegriffen. Wir sind von WordPress Deutschland gebeten worden den Einsatz des Anti-Spam-Plugins “Akismet” datenschutzrechtlich zu beurteilen. Und die obige Frage spielt bei der Prüfung eine wesentliche Rolle. Meine rechtliche Analyse entspricht leider nicht meiner persönlichen Meinung und daher würde ich mich freuen, wenn sie jemand widerlegen würde.

  18. A lot of designers seem to be talking about user experience (UX) these days. We’re supposed to delight our users, even provide them with magic, so that they love our websites, apps and start-ups. User experience is a very blurry concept. Consequently, many people use the term incorrectly. Furthermore, many designers seem to have a firm (and often unrealistic) belief in how they can craft the user experience of their product. However, UX depends not only on how something is designed, but also other aspects. In this article, I will try to clarify why UX cannot be designed.

  19. "Which is bet­ter for users, a top or left nav­i­ga­tion? Web design­ers have debated this issue for a long time. Many have drawn their own con­clu­sions. Many have mixed feel­ings. How­ever, the truth is that there is no absolute answer. When it comes to design­ing for users, con­text is king. A nav­i­ga­tion that works well in one con­text, may not work as well in another. To fig­ure out which nav­i­ga­tion is best for your site, it’s impor­tant to under­stand the dif­fer­ent con­texts where the top and left nav­i­ga­tion work best."

  20. "In general, A/B testing involves segmenting site traffic into different groups and showing each group a different version of the same landing page. Perhaps one page will contain different headline text or a different call-to-action button style. Another page will serve as the "goal" for the desired conversion. For example, a newsletter sign-up confirmation page or the final check-out page in an eCommerce shopping cart. The software will figure out which version of the page resulted in more clicks or conversions. "

  24. Most websites are crammed with small text that’s a pain to read. Why? There is no reason for squeezing so much information onto the screen. It’s just a stupid collective mistake that dates back to a time when screens were really, really small.
  25. Eine Frage, die vermutlich jeden Interface Designer beschäftigt, ist die Frage des Tools mit dem man seine Screenshots, bzw. Prototypen erstellt. Neben den üblichen Verdächtigen wie Photoshop oder Illustrator, stehen natürlich auch Anwendungen wie z.B. Fl
