Time Perception in UX Design

Catalina Butnaru - Sunday, November 27, 2011 |

You are close to finishing up your project; your workflow has improved significantly since you started using that project management tool for developers: time is flying. Later that day your flight is delayed and you start reading the news and switch to playing a game: time goes slow; distraction keeps your eyes off the clock until departure.

Time perception is an interesting dimension of user experience that designers need to understand to improve the UI. When users engage with the interface, a slight change in their perception of time can affect their entire experience. In this article we discuss different types of time perception, user scenarios and optimization techniques recommended in each case.

UX Design - Made by People, for People Infographic

Catalina Butnaru - Tuesday, December 21, 2010 |

Experience. We love it, we talk about it, we criticize it, we crave it and we sell it. Is experience more of a modern currency or something beyond that, more profoundly attached to how people live and act in a global online marketplace?

User experience in web design starts with real people and grows from there - not only the people who are customers, but also the people who are involved in the process of building a website. There is an interesting blend of knowledge, goals and ideas that go into the process of designing for the best user experience. Throughout this post we will talk about three major components that go into designing great experiences.

Since user experience is the end result of and encompasses all parts of the creative process, we have designed this awesome infographic to illustrate and explain what is involved when creating the best user experience. The infographic can be useful to both businesses and creatives for a detailed look at the components that make up UX design.

The Creative Flow in a Web Design Studio

Catalina Butnaru - Thursday, December 09, 2010 |

What does it take for a group of people to be an awesome team? What does the team need to be so immersed in the project, so that everything flows perfectly when working on projects? More exactly, what makes a great web design studio vibrant with energy and personality?

In creative web design agencies there is an interesting sequence of ideas, solutions and decisions, that we call the creative flow. It is fueled by the interaction between clients and the creative team, as well as by each member's participation in the project. The creative flow becomes richer and more resourceful, when everybody around you is excited.
