Nick will explore the best practices of user experience by reviewing some of the most popular and highly trafficked websites today such as eBay, Amazon, Toyota, Flickr, Twitter, Netflix and more. Nick will identify and explain both good an bad experiences on these sites on the merits of visual design, information architecture, interaction, and ease of use. If there is time we will open the floor for audience submissions and to provide quick feedback and areas of improvement.
Dan Benjamin interview Liz Danzico, a designer, educator, editor, and an independent information architecture and user experience consultant. Liz has worked with companies like Barnes & Noble, Happy Cog, Razorfish, and more. She worked with Boxes and Arrows as editor-in-chief for nearly seven years, and was director of experience strategy for AIGA.
Dan and Liz discuss design, curating, the importance of user experience, writing for the web, inspiration, the future of the web and social networks, and where we’re headed as an online community.
