PRODUCT Direct Stakeholder Indirect Stakeholder
Wider Environment Key Points One reason products fail is because teams do not solve the problems that are important to the right users. These personas are not always obvious, as they may be associated with the product through indirect connections. With Customer-Centric, you can identify the vast web of people your product impacts and explore the complex butterfly effect; doing so reveals which stakeholders are most important and what your product requirements are.

Visual cues, such as the
arrow on a pop-up menu, help people recognize familiar elements. People learn to associate certain behaviors with specific elements based on their appearance. For example, people recognize push buttons by their rounded shape… — OSX Human Interface Guidelines
Professor Nänni, author of the
exemplary Visual Perception, a book detailing our best-to-date scientific understanding of the processes involved in visual cognition, is saying that rounded rectangles are literally easier on the eye. Put another way, compared to square- edged rectangles, rounded rectangles are more computationally efficient for the human brain.
To accomplish simplification, user experience
designers employ a variety of design exercises to make the UI more efficient. We limit the amount of choices available to a user, reduce the size of content and site copy, progressively disclose UI options, and synthesize unruly navigation elements. Essentially though, these are just exercises in numerical reduction.

What problems do you solve for them? Why are users visiting your site? Why are they choosing you over the competition? When is the right time for you to redesign your UX, or to include UX design in your next project?
