The artwork accompanying today's UX Thursday is a tribute to the annual No Waste Day — an annual event celebrated in various parts of the world that aims to raise our awareness of the problem of environmental pollution by waste. Reducing the production of garbage and reusing items that allow it is an active step towards preserving the good state of the planet on which we live. It is worth taking care of the environment not only from the holidays, which we strongly encourage, as well as to devote a few minutes to the latest entry as part of our Thursday, UX cycle.

Japanese webdesign

At the beginning of today's list, we have an interesting article in which Miriam Missbichler describes differences in the appearance of Japanese websites compared to those that are created in the West. According to the author, what characterizes Japanese sites is a more complex structure and content, which is probably due to cultural and linguistic differences. In Japanese, you can also convey more information in a much smaller space, which allows more content to be placed on the page. There is also no doubt about the color difference - Japanese websites are often subtlety and pastels.

Long live freedom

From this article you will find out if and what benefits can come from the use of editable fields that allow users to freely enter and edit data, which translates into an increase in the usability of the interface. However, too much restriction in editing can negatively affect the overall experience, so it is important that editable fields are clearly marked and placed in the right context. This is an important element that gives users freedom and control over the data they enter - its correct application can contribute to a better user experience.
