Today we’ll have a look at a few projects in which the consistent use of the well-known term “emotional design” can result in a great personality. Positive attitude often leads to people sharing and even advocating for your product with their peers. Positive emotions instill positive memories and make users want to interact with your product in the future. Thereâ€™s also an additional benefit: In pleasant, positive situations, people are much more likely to tolerate minor difficulties and irrelevance. While poor design is never excusable, when people are relaxed, the pleasant and pleasurable aspects of a design will make them more forgiving of problems within the interface….
We all know basic tenets of user-centred design. We recognize different research methods, prototyping, as well as documenting techniques in our rich methodological environment. The question you probably often ask yourself though is how it all works in practice?
In the first television advertisement for the iPad, the narrator intoned, â€œItâ€™s crazy powerful. Itâ€™s magical. You already know how to use it.â€ This was an astonishing claim. Here was a new, market-defining, revolutionary device, unlike anything we had seen before, and we already knew how to use it. And yet, for the most part, the claim was true…
Results are everything. There’s no excuse or way out from this fact. They are the ultimate goal of design, management and production. Only results are what an audience will remember, and what we care about most deeply.
The definition of quality is always difficult. There are many dimensions and attributes that make up quality. Whether it is quality of product, quality of service, it is difficult to quantify quality. We think that there is one attribute that makes a big difference in quality. Quality is in details. Quality becomes apparent when you take care of details. When it comes to quality doing your best is not enough. You need to go beyond the best. Take care of details before you admit that it is complete. Let others experience quality of your work. And this can be achieved only by meticulous planning of minor details and execution without compromise.
No, this isn’t a typo. Never start something you don’t know how to finish. Only when you possess the knowledge to complete a project as a whole understand the best way to start it.
Keep your ideas focused on the concept reasons for creating your service. All technology is “dead end” because of it’s short life span. Let your requirements dictate when it makes sense to rebuild and take advantage of the latest and greatest. And keep in mind that the latest is not necessarily the greatest. Always put a priority on producing the best service, technology will be a tool at your disposal.
One of the most exciting, and at the same time, frightening things about design is starting from a blank page. “All those possibilities,” often becomes “too many choices,” and you’re left wondering where to start. But the more you know about the project, the less “blank” your page will be from the start; the more answers you’ll have, the fewer question marks you’ll see.
When you start thinking about a design, your first question should not be “how should it look”. It should be “how should it work”.
While design is a very intuitive process, graphic design is an applied process. That means you don’t just design something to be pretty, you design it to work, to serve a purpose.
In the last sixty years everybody witnessed how the post-war italian entrepreneurship was able to create the most recognized and valuable brands and products in the world. The heritage, creativity, lateral thinking and prestige of our country’s workmanship is something that should not be thrown-away when we think about web and new media. We should not be influenced by foreign technologists, but use our strong culture and knowledge to pursue greater standards in design and production, mostly inspire and not be inspired.
