We’ve spent November looking at how psychology and neuroscience help us design for people. We used Susan Weinschenk’s book 100 Things Every Designer Needs to Know About People as the inspiration so we’re pretty excited that she’ll be joining us in our Slack channel next week.
There are lots of people out there with different brains. They cover a broad range of differences including: autism, ADHD, dyslexia, traumatic brain injury and many more. Different brains are beautiful because they think differently on a whole other level.
Ashlea McKay shares her own experience as an autistic UXer, and how you can design better for neurodiverse users.
Have you ever been in a rut with your design process? Maybe you’re churning out the same solutions to every problem. Or you just can’t nail the way forward for your product.
To move ahead, you probably need to find a new perspective. Enter innovation sprints, which use immersive insights and assumption-busting to kick-start the design process.
Amanda’s last article covered how to “guerilla-ise” traditional UX research methods to fit into a short timeline, and when it makes the most sense to use them.
Now, she’s back to walk us through some of the most popular guerilla methods—live intercepts, remote and unmoderated studies, and using low fidelity prototypes. She covers pros, cons and tips to make sure you make the most of your guerilla research sessions.
In November, we’re taking a close look at how psychology and neuroscience help us design for people. Inspired by Susan Weinschenk’s book of the same name, this month we’re exploring how to get close to our users – essential in our line of work.
Most importantly, we want to hear from YOU! Read on to find out how to get involved.
When you’re on the hunt for your next UX role, your portfolio can make or break your chances of scoring an interview. We know how important it is to craft a UX portfolio that tells the story of your most important projects and how you work.
We’ve hand-picked the best advice on portfolios from Joe Natoli’s recent Ask the UXperts session.

This often means reducing scope and/or rigor. The key to successful guerilla research is to strike the right balance to hit time and budget goals, but still be rigorous enough to gather valuable feedback.
So when is the best time to tackle your research guerilla style?
