9780124201972: Communicating the UX Vision: 13 Anti-Patterns That Block Good Ideas

As an interaction or UX designer, you've felt the general trend toward faster development, more work, and less discussion. Communicating the UX Vision helps you identify the skills and behavioral patterns to present your work in more persuasive ways, and respond more constructively to feedback from co-workers and stakeholders.

It's a fact that we all want to put great design into the world, but no product ever makes it out of the building without rounds of reviews, feedback, and signoff. As we spend time crafting, we become attached to our own ideas and it gets all too easy to react to feedback emotionally or dismiss it, when we should be taking the time to decode it and explain or adapt the design. This book identifies the 13 main challenges designers face when they talk about their work, and provides insights and strategies to help you recognize and overcome them so that a better design, not a louder argument, is what makes it into the world.

  • Learn presentation tips that make stakeholders and other departments take your designs more seriously
  • Uncover valuable techniques to make feedback sessions more productive
  • Understand how to improve empathy with business stakeholders and learn to speak their language better
  • Discover how to better understand your behavior and identify your personal anti-patterns

About the Author:

Martina is a User Experience consultant with over 15 years of experience in interactivity for web, desktop, TV and mobile devices. She specializes in user-centered design, experience strategy and qualitative design research to help Fortune 100 and start-up companies across a wide range of sectors develop new products and services, or measurably improve existing ones. Martina holds a MA in Applied Imagination from Central Saint Martins, where she conducted research into methods for multi-disciplinary collaboration to support creativity and innovation. She co-founded UX Tuesday and mentors at Method Design Lab and Seedcamp to bring UX expertise to startups. She serves on the UK UXPA committee, and regularly organizes and speaks at events.

James is a UX Designer and experienced Agile practitioner. He loves to create exceptional products and can often be found complaining on Twitter about the frustrations that get in the way. In the last ten years he's worked with agencies, enterprise codeshops and independent start-ups, always preaching the importance of designing for the user. James lives on a rusty Dutch barge moored by Tower Bridge. He doesn't do anything in his spare time because he lives on a rusty Dutch barge, so he never gets any spare time. When he's lucky, he sleeps. He usually smells faintly of diesel.
