"Intuitive design is inconspicuous, but not necessarily unremarkable" - http://usabilitygeek.com/intuitive-website-design-better-conversions/ … - #UX #UserExperience #CRO
An intuitive website will hold on to the visitor, get to know more about their preferences and eventually convert them to a paying customer

We can expect the trends of custom-fit, personalized apps, powered by cutting-edge technology like chatbots, VR and AI to continue. We can also expect users to become more demanding and harder to retain. - http://usabilitygeek.com/mobile-ux-trends-2017/ #UX #UserExperience #MobileUX

Choosing between dedicating your professional self to working for a design agency or a corporate company is a big deal. Just think about how different the design roles for UXers in an agency and corporate can be in terms of the environment, working culture, team size, responsibilities and the impact of final deliverables. #UX #UXD #UXDesign http://usabilitygeek.com/corporate-vs-design-agency-perks-and-pitfalls-for-ux-designers/

Businesses are rapidly exploring the benefits of UX, and they are already recognizing the potential for significant return on investment from UX research and development. You should not even slightly underestimate a great UX’s ability to influence customers. #UX #UXD #UserExperience http://usabilitygeek.com/how-understanding-ux-benefits-digital-businesses/
Understanding UX is beneficial to digital businesses because it helps them understand users, lower support needs and increase customer trust

If your website is multi-lingual, your web font needs to be compatible with every language you support, and it may mean redesigning some of the pages, based on that language or culture #UX #UserExperience #Typography http://usabilitygeek.com/how-to-internationalize-your-typography/
To internationalize your website typography you need to assess aspects such as font size, shape, the number of characters as well as cultural considerations

"You should not have a defined process until you learn the project details" - http://usabilitygeek.com/ux-design-process-is-there-really-one/ #UX #UserExperience #UXD #UXDesign
A UX design process should be versatile and adaptable, depending on the project being undertaken. It is key in defining the quality of the end product.

If you are working with a powerful voice recognition integration algorithm, then voice commands can easily be the most usable solution for input. Steering wheel controls come in at a close second, followed by the touchscreen on the user’s head unit (which can be highly distracting on the road). http://usabilitygeek.com/smart-car-app-design/
Car app input should only come from either the remote buttons on the steering wheel, the stereo head unit, or voice command integration

Many individuals believe that if someone is visually impaired, they do not use the Internet. This is untrue. http://usabilitygeek.com/6-principles-visual-accessibility-design/ #accessibility
Accessibility is still an overlooked element in web design. When designing a site, one should keep in mind those users who are blind or visually impaired.

“Be Prepared” may be the Boy Scout motto, but the phrase is applicable to Black Friday and Cyber Monday preparation as well.

Good UX design can have significant positive impact in the world. By focusing their talents, UX designers can make meaningful change and drive towards social good. #UXD #UX #UserExperience http://usabilitygeek.com/ux-for-social-good/
UX designers can do social good as a direct or indirect part of user experience design by embarking on a personal project or joining one with a social cause

For sectors such as travel, whose customers increasingly want to access services online, getting a website right could be critical for keeping up with competitors. Not only this, but having an inclusive approach to web design, that offers a good experience to users will prevent any negative impact on a brand’s reputation. - http://usabilitygeek.com/travel-sector-needs-to-buck-ideas…/ #UX #UserExperience
Our analysis of 10 of the top travel sites shows some lacking points in terms of usability, accessibility and multi-device offering.
