As part of my PhD thesis, I am collecting responses to a questionnaire survey on User eXperience. More than 100 Usability/UX researchers and practitioners have already been invited to perform this exercise and most of them agree on the fact that there is still a definite need for a standardized definition of the term UX.
By sharing your views on UX, your participation in this survey will help bringing the concept of UX to maturity.
Carl Alviani is a writer and content strategist for Ziba, a design consultancy in Portland, Oregon. He began writing about design in 2004 as an occasional contributor to Core77.com while working as a freelance industrial designer in New York City.
I am producing IA/UX for a SaaS and need to obtain research specific to the typical layout of a Use Case 01 landing page with call-to-action.
Specifically, my client wants an initial landing page with two calls-to-action buttons with the same visual weight. His justification is that both will eventually lead down conversion paths (one directly to signup, the second to more information). All information I can find advises this has the opportunity to cause some confusion which can hamper conversion rates.
Of course it is. I hate these kind of annoying teaser headlines that the
print and broadcast media use to get people to read a news story/watch a
program. But here's what I'm getting at:
In the beginning was Interface Design. Then it was argued that it's more
than 'just' the 'interface', which regular folk take to mean pretty looking
screens -- that it's actually 'Interaction Design'; that we are interested
in matters beyond 'merely' the 'interface', and in fact we would like to
design the entire interaction process.
