It just so happens this year that UX Thursdays often have something to do with sweets. This does not particularly bother us, on the contrary, with a smile on our face we receive news about days like today, on which World Muffin Day falls 🧁 Any occasion to celebrate is good, so we recommend that you visit a nearby pastry shop as soon as possible and stock up on a set of pastries, which may make it easier to review today's news compilation from industry, in which, inter alia:

➡️ Possibilities to increase user engagement on websites

➡️ find your own language in design

➡️ and a surprise at the end 🎉

Break the schemes

Surely everyone has experienced a kind of creative blockage more than once in the course of work, whether related to lack of inspiration, or to the accumulation of ideas and the associated chaos of thoughts. Marcos Rezende in his article discusses situations in which our creativity encounters real obstacles and presents some practical solutions for how to deal with it and overcome it. Allocate the right amount of time only to invent, divide tasks into achievable goals, do not close yourself to new concepts and above all, take breaks! 🙂

How to increase user engagement on a website?

0.05 seconds - this is approximately how long it takes a user to form an opinion about the website they visit, including determining whether they like it or not and whether they want to stay on it. There are many ways to retain a user and increase their engagement on the site. In the blog article UserGuiding You will find practical tips, such as personalizing content, including interactive elements, using animations and providing feedback tools. You will also learn about the importance of regular data analysis, which plays a key role in understanding behavior, building lasting relationships with users, increasing their loyalty and improving business results.

There is strength in simplicity

We stay in the topic of users and their good experiences and move on to analyze the mistakes to avoid in the design. Often you can come across designs that are multifunctional, but do not respond to the basic needs of the user and increase their frustration. Unwanted language changes, form validation errors, unreadable labels? These and other scenarios describes in his article Pavel Samsonov and at the same time encourages designers to focus on the basic needs of users, providing a simple and intuitive interface.

Your own design language

Have you ever wondered if your design language is really your own? Is it consistent with your values and mindset, or does it make you stand out in the market? David Hoang made a great post, in which he shares his thoughts on what can be done in design instead of relying on trends and schemes. It points out useful inspirations and advantages that go behind your own defined design style. In conclusion - let's not be afraid to experiment!

16 principles of good UI: case study

We know that a simple to use and intuitive interface is often the key to success, but what besides that? Adham Dannaway has prepared a set of simple tips and rules, which can effectively support any designer in making informed design decisions. Proper layout of elements, contrast, colors, consistency with the customer's style - these and many other rules that are worth remembering are precisely described and can easily become a kind of design checklist.
