The name of this site is “User Experience Hub” and is, generally, focused on the details and implementation of software interface design. However, “user experience” can thought of in a much broader way. Though the examples on the following URLs are not software interface design examples, they do reinforce the value of design and of fundamental design principles.
Many of our projects may not have the immediate, life-saving benefit of the LifeStraw, but the same principles that guided its development should guide every software interface design we do.
- Understand the “point”
- Understand the context
- Help people
Walking home the other day I ran into an old high school classmate who I hadn’t seen in over 12 years. We did the obligatory catching up, and of course she asked what I did for work. What followed was a typical scenario. I explained I was a user-experience consultant for Adobe, which was followed by a blank stare.
“You know, Flash” … Another blank stare.
The fact of the matter is a lot of very bright people use our technology every day, whether it be Flash Video, Flash Applications, PDF, or consume a product that has been designed by Adobe technology, and have no idea that they are using Adobe technology.
I wanted to thank everyone for attending Albert and I’s presentation. We both really enjoyed the feedback and response that we received (Especially when Albert dropped the F*Bomb).
So… Over the next week or so I will make sure that we post all of the files from our presentation. Including the source files from the Flash based “Paper Prototype” and the Flex Project. In the meantime, if you have anything encouraging to say about our preso or have questions, please feel free to drop us a comment or a note.
Oh… one more thing. What happened in Vegas stays in Vegas.
Okay, so this is admittedly off-topic from the usual Adobe Consulting fare, but I recently discovered a nice feature of Yahoo Maps Beta that’s a bit hidden that may be of interest to those who exercise and like to measure mileage of new routes.
One of the great things about Flex is the “mouseOver” event that pretty much any component, including containers, has available. What this means is that we can trigger almost any event without requiring a mouse click. Why and when would you want to do such a thing? Imagine, for example, a list with details, as shown in the flex application below.
This is a nice step into the idea of configuring your digital environment. If only I could burn 300 calories while running through here. Kudos!
If anyone knows who designed this experience, I would love to know.
