How UX design and information architecture go hand-in-hand
Just because you’re a good designer doesn’t mean that you don’t need to be aware of the latest technologies and methodologies. In fact, a UX designer can improve professional skills by constant learning. Along with other sciences, designers must learn and study information architecture. IA can help them with their workflow. Some companies and designers believe that information architecture is the foundation of efficient UI and UX design. What are your thoughts about it?

UX Wars: Lyft vs. Uber
As you may have noticed, we recently re-launched our UX Wars campaign with a bit of a twist. We have included audience participation by running polls on social media. Currently, we hope to compare and contrast usability testing results with social media poll results and gain insights about why people prefer one app over the other. With this current round, we focused on rideshare apps. So without further ado, let’s dive into UX Wars: Lyft vs. Uber!
What are the application security flaws in UX design?
Do you remember the movie “Rise of the Planet of Apes?” Actually, you do not have to because this is about the “rise of the planet of apps” and not apes as in the movie. Did you mumble something about that being a terrible pun? I get it, I am not so good at puns, and we are not here to talk about puns. We are going to try and put on a serious face like that of Sandor Clegane (the hound) in Game of Thrones and focus on UX design cyber application security.
UX playoffs: Food delivery bracketology
If you’ve been following our social media, then you’ve probably seen the UX playoffs polls we’ve been running for the past several weeks. It started as a fun little campaign that we started in celebration of the NBA playoffs. As folks engaged with and voted on their favorite food delivery apps, we were reminded of a time when we used to share UX Wars blog posts and how those resonated with everyone. So, here we are! Soft relaunching our old campaign. Don’t worry, friends. The name change was temporary and apropos only to the NBA playoffs situation.
Key components of the UX design process
The UX design process doesn’t only provide users with a pleasurable and intuitive user experience. It also offers an opportunity for UX designers to make changes and improvements in their designs as they go along. If you want to design a user-friendly interface for a website or app, you need to understand the meaning of UX and the key components of the UX design process. So, let’s start.
UX research and UX design
When it comes to building a good user experience for your customers, both UX design and UX research are important parts of the process. While both aspects of UX are key to developing a strong user interface, they both play different roles. In this article, we will discuss UX research and UX design and the key components of each.
Prioritizing usability testing In the UX design process
During the UX design process, understanding, collecting, and sorting data and feedback are some of the most vital tasks. To be more exact, it’s becoming a trending UX skill. Usability testing shows you if your target users will use your product or not. As well, the UX design process includes the whole process of developing, owning, and even fixing the UX design and user interface. The UX design process doesn’t just focus on creating innovative products but also works on other aspects of the UX, like efficiency, accessibility, and functionality! This means that usability testing should be a priority throughout the process.
The importance of including UX research in your UX design process
The most crucial component of any design process is UX research. Therefore, it shouldn’t be overlooked. You can’t run a successful project when you don’t understand your users’ needs, wants, and expectations. Therefore, UX research is critical before starting any project. It will ensure that your product is designed keeping users in mind.
