In users’ minds brand identity is inseparable from brand experience.... that is why you have to incorporate and balance a great UX (experience) with distinguishable, consistent elements that identify your brand - #UX #UserExperience #Branding #UXDesign - http://usabilitygeek.com/design-ux-ui-patterns-branding/
UX/UI patterns create a functional product, but not necessarily a distinguishable one. That is why you need to combine and balance them with creativity.

Perhaps the most important colors are red, orange and green – the traffic lights of UX. This is not because they are the best colors to use in your general scheme (they are not), but because they are actionable. #UX #UserExperience #UXDesign http://usabilitygeek.com/traffic-lights-ux-smart-color/
The traffic lights of UX - red, orange and green are important because they are actionable. Each of these colors will trigger a (predictable) user action.

A unique, specialized and personalized company will receive higher quality feedback than those who generically follow the example their predecessors in order to receive the highest profit. ‪#‎CX‬ ‪#‎CustomerExperience‬ - http://usabilitygeek.com/how-to-measure-customer-experience/
To measure the customer experience, first understand who you are as a brand and what type of feedback you want to receive. Then choose the method to get it.

rototypes are not the answer to all usability prayers - but running usability tests using high fidelity prototypes can avoid the kind of 11th hour headaches that make software designers’ and developers’ blood run cold: last-minute reworks, buggy launches and worse, loss of stakeholder confidence and funds. #usability #UX #UserTesting #UserExperience http://usabilitygeek.com/usability-testing-prototypes/
Interactive prototypes are a great way to implement usability testing into the early stages of development. This lessens rework and prevents confidence loss
