Too Short

By Luckee13 - Aug 09 2019
Read more
I love listening to these two when they get going. But then they run out of drink and it’s all over. Half hour is too short. How much more do I need to pledge to get longer episodes? I’ve been “doing the UX” for a decade now but always feel I learn something new or at least feel understood when they talk about the same problems. My favorite podcast to recommend to EVERYONE. Everyone.

Max Volume, still can’t hear the pod.

Great guests and topics, but that’s worthless when the audio quality is low. I can barely hear James and Per through Bluetooth in my car, or headphones at my desk. Time to upgrade the equipment guys!

Episode 176 is a link show. James and Per discuss two articles that have grabbed their attention.

Article one is A 100 Year View of User Experience by Jakob Nielsen. “For all practical purposes, the growth in UX is still to come. I’m predicting that we’ll be 100 million UX professionals in the world by 2050. This corresponds to 1% of the world’s population.”

Our second article is Five user research rules of thumb by Leisa Reichelt. “Over years of experience you begin to collect ways of working and talking about how you work that accrete into rules of thumb.”

Preparing for your next job is like saving for retirement says Jessica Ivins. Start putting yourself out there ahead of time, thinking about what you would like your next job to be and do a little bit to prepare on a regular basis.

We get lots of questions related to looking for your next, or even your first, UX job. Jessica helps us answer them: What should you do before applying for jobs? Should you have a portfolio? How should you present your portfolio? How can we use storytelling during our interviews? How do you make best use of social media? What design tools do you really need to know about?

Rank #3: #175 Human centred design with Alastair Somerville

Podcast cover
Read more

We are constantly simplifying the world around us and the people within it. This is a perfectly understandable reaction to the messy things we have to work with. But with every step back we are building a wall between the user and what it is to be human. We talk to Alastair about human centred design. How to use your senses and perception and take in the world around you.

“If you reduce humans to only being users then you remove large swathes of what it is to be human… the world of what it is to be human is vast and we really need to properly consider our humanity”

Harry Brignull joins us to talk about “dark patterns”. Harry coined the phrase back in 2010 to describe the design patterns used on websites to deliberately trick us into doing something.

We discuss some examples as well as the ethics behind implementing them and ask if “light patterns” exist. We talk about how dark patterns go beyond the web and into service design. Should we avoid using dark patterns in our designs? Well, we think yes – so in that case, how?

We take a deep dive into Keyboard shortcuts, or hotkeys in this topic show. We dig into how to decide and design what keyboard shortcuts to have in your web app. What are keyboard shortcuts? Are they the same thing as Accesskeys? What standards and conventions are there to follow? What are shortcut no-nos we should avoid? We try to shine some light on the topic and give your own list of recommendations about what you could do.

Rank #6: #201 Consistency

Podcast cover
Read more

Episode 201 is a link show. James and Per discuss two articles that have grabbed their attention – this time they’re about Consistency in design and polarity mapping.

Article one is Consistency in Design is the Wrong Approach by Jared Spool. “We often hear designers talk about consistent navigation, consistent page layouts, or consistent control elements. In each case, the designer is looking for a way to leverage the usability by creating uniformity. After all, if the user learns to operate the design in one place, why not have that knowledge transfer to the next. This is all good. But wrong.”

Our second article is The Joys of Polarity Mapping by Stephen Anderson by Stephen Anderson. “A problem is something that can have a right — or best — answer. A solution exists. Polarities are not a problem to be solved, but rather a paradox to be balanced. Problems give us two ideas that are directly opposed and in conflict. Polarities give us two ideas that are complementary and interdependent.”

How can we stay up-to-date in a world constantly in flux? Kate Rutter, designer, teacher and co-host of What Is Wrong With UX joins us to talk about how to embrace continious learning and personal growth.

We talk about a world of serial careers, being relaxed about tools and methods, recruitment – and the usefulness of feedback and personal reflection. 

“You grapple and accept the challenges you had and reflect on how you solved them. That is the mindset that’s really meaningful for companies to hire”

Kate Rutter

Rank #8: #148 Lostness

Podcast cover
Read more

Episode 148 is a link show. James and Per discuss three articles that have grabbed their attention.

The first article is Decision Frames: How Cognitive Biases Affect UX Practitioners.  Kathryn Whitenton explains how we are all vulnerable to cognitive biases and the way in which we frame our problems can bias our design decisions.

Article two is Agile Doesn’t Have a Brain. Jeff Gothelf argues that the reason that organisations are working in an agile manner has changed dramatically over the years and now they are looking for faster, rather than better, ways to satisfy business needs.

Our third article is The Complete Guide to Measuring Lostness. Tomer Sharon explains what this metric is and how it can be used to gauge how lost people are on your website or in your app.

“When I first joined the workforce, I was unprepared for how much of my work would be dependent upon the success or failure within meetings”. Kevin Hoffman has been both fascinated and frustrated by meetings throughout his career. Meetings are part of your job, like it or not.

Imagine you could just draw a concept on a whiteboard and everyone just got it and got on with it. That’s what a design infused organisation looks like. Jared Spool joins us to talk about the growth stages understanding and the growth states of UX in organisations.  Our job as design leaders is to help organisations become more design mature.

“Everyone is a designer”, “designers are protectionist”, “designers should code”, “designers need to understand business”. Topics which generate plenty of discussion!

We discuss the importance of influencing the people who make the big decisions, the need for designers to develop their “soft skills”, what it means to be humans-centred versus metrics-centred, and the power of self-reflection.

What frustrates people when using mobile sites? Lina Hansson is a conversion specialist at Google.

By and large our focus in recent times has been on websites and apps, but increasingly we are going to be asked to design things in physical contexts; terminals, IoT devices, lifts. We talk to Kevin Cannon about ergonomics and UX design – The meeting point of traditional UX and industrial design.

One of the biggest things in ergonomics is accessibility – making interfaces and screens accessible for a wide range of users. We discuss distance to screens and the idea of “three reads”, prime pixels and prime edges and the importance of prototyping – trying things out for yourself.

Podcast cover

Jobs to be done is a tool that comes up regularly in UX circles. But exactly what is it? We talk to Tony Ulwick, author of Jobs to be Done: Theory to practice. The framework helps to break down the job that customers want to get done into discrete steps, then help develop ways to make steps easier, faster, or unnecessary and innovate your product.

There are a number of tools that go by the name jobs to be done, but they aren’t all the same. This can make it both challenging and confusing to learn and discover what the tool is and how applying it can help you and your organisation. Tony helps us understand how Jobs To Be Done theory works as part of his company’s Outcome-Driven Innovation process.
