Re: Color and Usability / User Experience

While I'm sure someone has researched how a particular shade of red improves conversions I believe that contrast and understanding how certain hues recede vs 'pop ', emotions of color etc. Smashing Magazine has a good color theory article that I will link to later.

Color and Usability / User Experience

Hi,

I'm looking for a study or guidelines about how to use color to enhance the usability of a website or an application. For example: Is there a color for the call to action button which is the most recommendable? Is there anything regarding colors would should to avoid? What would you tell somebody who wants to know which influence has color for the usability of a website?

I would very much appreciate your input to these questions.

Thanks and best greetings, Karen

Breadcrumb Trail Separator Terminolgoy

In the interest of a controlled vocabulary, what terms have you used, or do you prefer to use for the > that is placed between breadcrumb trail elements?

^ is a caret, but that isn't quite accurate.  "Greater-than sign" just sounds out of place.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Creating a usability database

I'm looking to get the company running usability across many brands and have been thinking how to go about ensuring an ongoing source of testing participants.

Has anyone thought about building a list of people who would be willing to act as testers for some usability? I know that there are commercial lists available, but surely we could generate a more "open source" option.

Let me know your thoughts...

Microsoft Products - What sucks and what rocks...

Hi all,

I haven't posted in a while, but read through posts everyday. That said.

I will have an opportunity to sit with a few of the UX and UI Designers in an interview.
Because some/many/most of you are using Windows and some/many/most of their software I would like to cast a net and see how you all feel about some/many/most of their products.

What bugs you?
What makes no sense?
What really sucks?
What's really good?

This is for any tool in their arcenal !!! Any product !!!

tracking time on task - web app

I'm working with a team where we want to be able to show improvement, decreased time on task, after we re-design the UI. I want to track time on task for a web based application. Has anyone captured time on task, and possibly click and scroll data from a particular web app? How do you pull the data for that app out of all of the other web related work that person may be doing?

 

Thanks for your insights,

Janna
