All posts in UX, UI & Web Design
I get quite a few emails with very specific questions about UX and UI design. Most of the time, the question is so specific that it’s hard to reply in just a few lines without understanding the context and users of the project. I can nevertheless give some generic advice in some cases. I decided to share the replies to those questions so that it will help more people. So here we go, I’ve no idea if this is going to become a “thing” on this blog and needs a specific section. For now, let’s try to keep it short and simple.

In this article I am going to share with you my list of seven ressources I use in my daily job to find the right UX method and tool.
I facilitated a workshop on: “User eXperience – starter crash course for Startups”. The audience was a nice mix between students and entrepreneurs with a project/ website. The goal was to help them discover how to build a product with a user centric approach and why startup people should focus on users needs and talk to their potential users as soon as possible.
In this article, you will find the slides of the workshop. At the end of the articles, you can download a small “UX Starter Kit for Startups” kit I created. It contains templates to build a product concept, a user journey map, a user flow kit, some mobile, tablet and desktop templates for paper prototyping and a guerilla usability testing checklist.

These biases will also impact collaboration between team members and during meetings or might influencer your user research. Whether you are creating the user experience of an interfaces or purchasing something online, it’s interesting to be aware of these biases.
