Mentoring as an investment (Chris Poteet)

Have you ever asked for an update on a project you’d invested a great deal of time and energy in, only to hear “they have completely redesigned it since then”? I did, and it left me with this very empty feeling. After some wallowing, I realized I needed to discover a new way to think about the way I work and what really matters in my consulting career. My answer: The mark of a truly good consultant is investing in people. Focusing on investing in people will ensure that your work will still continue to see results long after the application is redesigned, and that is change that matters in the long run.

Filtering UI: A Horizontal Toolbar Can Outperform the Traditional Sidebar (Christian Holst)

At e-commerce sites the filtering interface has historically consisted of a left-hand vertical sidebar. However, over the last couple of years a new filtering and sorting interface has become increasingly popular: a horizontal toolbar which combine both filters and the sort tool. In fact our Product Lists & Filtering benchmark reveal that of 50 top US e-commerce sites 24% have ditched the traditional filtering sidebar in favor of a combined horizontal filtering and sorting tool (similar to the one in the image above).

Maybe You're Not Really An Entrepreneur (Mitch Joel)

How would you define an entrepreneur? I have always broken it down like this: An entrepreneur is someone who has a vision for a specific industry that does not yet exist, and has the ability to bring that business to market successfully. Yes, it leaves plenty of room for interpretation. Yes, it is not all-encompassing. I was once asked to judge an awards program for entrepreneurs. A lot of the businesses were second or third generation owners. I discounted them. I got in trouble for doing so. The argument - on the other side - was that these individuals really took the business to the next level, another level or a whole other space. Fantastic. I agree that these individuals are highly successful and talented, but I also felt like they were entrepreneurial... but not the entrepreneurs. One of the nuances (for me), is that the entrepreneur has the initial idea to start a business, and takes on the risk and leverage involved in taking this idea to market (and growing it). Everything after that is entrepreneurial. (twistimage.com)

Customer-Centric Marketing: 5 tips on mining customers for content (Courtney Eckerle)

A blinking cursor on a blank page is a terrifying sight for a writer. It’s like having arachnophobia and someone putting a spider in your hair. The struggle is, in fact, real. The good news is that, as marketers, we have it easy. Customers are telling you what they want to hear, and it’s only a matter of listening to what they’re saying. Sounds simple, right? I can practically hear everyone mentally (or maybe actually) murmuring, “Duh.” (marketingsherpa.com)

Fall of the Designer Part III: Conformist Responsive Design (Eli Schiff)

In the early 2010s, the design industry became increasingly aware that designing both web and native applications would require more effort than it had previously. It is argued that before one could achieve market success with a one size fits all desktop or mobile application or website. Designers today are compelled to adapt their designs to multiple display sizes. It is not just traditional laptops and desktops that need to be taken into account, but also TVs, smart watches and even car dashboards. (elischiff.com)

5 Reasons To Integrate Email Marketing Into Your Business Strategy (Tomas Laurinavicius)

Despite social media’s promise to help businesses reach potential customers with 140 characters or less, big brands continue to invest in email marketing. Open your email inbox and you’ll find promotional emails from big brands, mixed in with personal emails from your friends, family, and co-workers. (despreneur.com)

5 Web Design Best Practices For a Great Website (Tomer Lerner)

While different web projects each have different needs, there are some design principles and best practices that are universal to all sites. In this article, we will take a look at 5 Design Tips to Revive Your Dead Website. (1stwebdesigner.com)

How to Succeed as an Experience Designer in Advertising Agencies (Ellen van den Berg)

At tech companies like Twitter and Yahoo, the experience designer sits in with the CEO to talk about the user experience. In full-service digital agencies, cross-disciplinary teams work on projects from kick-off to delivery. Both types of organizations often work on projects and products in an agile way. In advertising agencies, however, creative teams of two (art-direction + copy), aligned with strategy, traditionally develop concepts for campaigns. It’s generally only after client approval of a concept that other disciplines—like experience design—get involved. (uxmag.com)

How Difficult Is It to Design User Experience? (Jaykishan Panchal)

Designers often brand themselves as “User Experience” designers. In fact, it is almost impossible to find a designer today who doesn’t use this attribute in their resume. But the question is: Are they genuine User Experience (UX) designers? In general, the primary concern of UX designers is how the product feels. There is hardly a single right answer to a given design problem. As a result, UX designers need to explore various approaches to resolve a user issue. Logical flow of the product from one step to another is the responsibility of the designers. For this they often implement in-person user tests to observe their behavior. They need to identify tentative verbal and non-verbal blocks and refine them to create the “best” possible user experience. (usabilitygeek.com)
