Poorly designed UX could affect security of your application.

There is no question of how important security and data protection is. The point of my discovery is that even in the most secured application with many layers of protection, there is always a point when a user interacts with the app. And if security-focused requirements affect User Experience in a negative way, making it confusing, unintuitive, or annoying – then users will try to simplify their tasks to avoid the complexity and confusion and will act in the way that will make the security of their data, and the security of the application itself weaker.

International UX: empathy, ethics, and respect needed.

Slang, trivia, cultural references, abbreviations, antiquated words, measurement systems - all of that, and more, could be confusing for non-native speakers. Using common and easy to understand rules and references, planning your design with respect to other cultures will help us to create a better, an inclusive User Experience, online and offline.

Piloting the first project with the UX process.

Do you work in an organization that doesn't have an established UX discipline, a clear owner of UX in the upper management and any shared design practices? If you do - you may have an excellent opportunity to advocate for Users and their needs and start the conversation about the User-centered design process. Bringing the UX process into a project is the first step in that direction.
