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

Believe it or not, there are some fundamental differences in the usability of different CMS platforms – and as a UX designer, you are responsible not only for the experience of the end user, but also of the client who must use the system. ‪#‎UX‬ ‪#‎UserExperience‬ ‪#‎Usability‬ ‪#‎Shopify‬ ‪#‎Magento‬
This is not 'another' Magento vs. Shopify article but rather a usability comparison of these 2 eCommerce software platforms.

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.

Ask yourself: am I designing for emotion? The difference between good design, and stunning, breathtaking design, is often a matter of emotional response. ‪#‎UX‬ ‪#‎UserExperience‬ 
Mood boards can be used by UX designers to target an emotional response thus enabling them to maintain full control over the user's experience.
