Inspiration – Online security (apparently we all have a different type pattern)

Posted on Nov 2, 2015

    I recently came across an example of an online security method that I’d never seen before. The website (for an online course) asked that the user submits a typing test every-time they submit an assignment in order to prevent cheating. I didn’t know this but apparently we all have a different type pattern, […]

Inspiration – A nice example of simple profile completion

Posted on Oct 30, 2015

A humanistic robot Slack presents a very nice way of getting a user to complete their profile by only asking for the minimum amount of information they need when registering. They then ask the user to fill in the remainder as they begin to use the system. I wonder how many people write “hello” when […]

Inspiration – Saatchi Art Augmented Reality

Posted on Oct 20, 2015

The Saatchi Art app lets you browse curated lists of art, but most interestingly, allows you to position the artwork in your home to see how it would look. Annoyingly though, it doesn’t allow you to save the image to your camera roll, so that you can share it via other mediums (e.g. whats app, […]

I found the below gif showing the different stages of animation for the Viber pictograms designed to help users learn what each means, and then removing the text once they felt the users “got it”. I can’t say that I’ve personally noticed any other site/app doing it, but at the same time, if its being […]

UX inspiration – smart holiday picker

Posted on Feb 20, 2014

I came across the below holiday picker on british airways site. Instead of giving you a list of places that you haven’t ever heard of, it helps you narrow down your choice based on temperature and journey time. You may for example, decide you want a warm holiday by the beach, so you’ll adjust the […]

The art of getting you started on a website

Posted on Jan 15, 2014

Twitter To get users started as quickly as possible, there is a walk through of suggestions. For example, people to follow, and companies to follow in order to make the site/webapp immediately useful. I can imagine the number of people registering, just for the sake of registering, but not realising the value of the service, […]
