Design critique workshop - Practical UX meetup #11

  1. 1. Design Critique Workshop Ljuba Youngblom Bojan Đuričić Dragan Babić Mika Jovičić practical-ux.com/slack
  2. 2. Why Design Critique? • to encourage a positive culture to improve products • to boost open exploration and discussion of designer’s intent and the choices made to reach the designer’s objectives • to detach emotionally from design by receiving feedback from other designers • to help designers refocus their work in areas that fall short while learning about their design process
  3. 3. Design Critique - Feedback that is NOT useful ! • I like it. • I hate it. • It's cool. • I love it. • I don't like it. • I hate you. • I love you. • You are awesome. • You suck. • I wish you should shut up. • Your work is bad so you are bad. • I would have done it like this… • You should try it like that… • What if you did this… • This is right. • This is wrong.
  4. 4. Best Practices • Avoid problem solving during critique • Create an equal playing field • Focus on the things that matter • Practice active listening skills • Focus the conversation with clear scope • Use round robins
  5. 5. Feedback examples Bad: That layout is so confusing?!
 Better: Please explain how does this layout make it easier for the user to accomplish their task quickly and efficiently? 
 Bad: I think that button is in the wrong spot and the overall page looks busy.
 Better: If the goal is to have the user login quickly, I think we are placing emphasis on the wrong elements and hiding the primary task by making the button hard to find.

  12. 12. Startit: What does success look like, and why? • Naša poruka i naši sadržaji treba dođu do što većeg broja ljudi - osnovna metrika koju gledamo je broj unique visitora koji nam dolaze na sajt svakog meseca. Taj broj ne bi trebalo da nam pada ispod 70.000 usera mesečno, a cilj nam je da iz meseca u mesec on raste od 5-7%.
 
 70.000 nam je u principu neki broj ispod kog ne bismo hteli da padamo. Odlučili smo prošle godine da dođemo do tog broja redovnih čitalaca jer nam je 70k dugo bio rekordni broj poseta na sajtu, a želeli smo da postane redovan (to nam je uspelo, sad gađamo malo više). Mislim da je to bila cela filozofija iza te cifre :)
  13. 13. Startit: List at least 3 adjectives to describe your work? "
