UX Thursday #96

Illustration of, laptop, notebook, person reading

Today is the Day of Emergency Medical Services - a holiday of people who often, on the verge of their endurance, tirelessly save other lives. For coffee, we propose articles about orderliness, (non) literality of interfaces and lying polls. In addition, we will consider together whether we should design for the enjoyment of users and we will look for tools that will not limit us.

Order in Figma

Mateusz Jędraszczyk on the pages of Product Vision shares the principles of how to take care of your files in Figma, in order to make life easier for yourself and others at the same time. The key, of course, is consistency.

Metaphors, analogies and idioms in design

As designers, we often try to tap into users' prior knowledge so that our interfaces become understandable to them more quickly. It is with nostalgia that we recall the times of ubiquitous skeumorphism. Did you also miss the moment when the floppy icon ceased to be a metaphor and became an idiom? We salute Generation Z, and we invite everyone to read ArtikelKristini Szerovay, which gathered some advice on what tools to use to present complex cases in a straightforward manner.

List of tools without borders

In our industry, tools based on infinite canvas have always been present, and those that facilitate the work of many people in real time have become practically indispensable in recent times. Arun Venkatesan collected them in one place. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the list, perhaps you will find something on it that from tomorrow will become useful in your daily work.

Can polls lie to us?

Taking a survey is not always a good idea. Stephanie Orkuna in text at uxdesign.cc describes situations in which the results of questionnaire studies can actually point us towards false conclusions. In her text, Stephanie also suggests some better solutions in return.

Pleasure is not everything

Alex Klein in their polemics with the classic “pleasure pyramid” by Aaron Walter, he wonders if this pleasure (delight) should be at the top of it, being the overriding goal of the interface. Instead, she suggests putting something decidedly more important in her place to provide our audience with deeper value and a positive impact on their lives.
