  1. Episode 1: Defining Creativity

    Designing Creativity is a show about the theories, tools and techniques used by normal people to produce great work.The show is very simple. A single topic, once a week, fifteen minutes. Something you can chew on, hopefully something that will help you in your daily life and work.I’m your host, Ben Alexander, and todays topic is “Defining Creativity”Just talking about creativity can be incredibly difficult because there are so many theories about just what happens inside the human mind when we make the creative leap. We’re going to take a look at many of these ideas and try to develop our own take on the creative process.This isn’t an attempt to come up with some grand new theory - we’re less concerned with whats right and wrong in terms of the actual psychological or neurological or philosophical concepts in play as we are with the practical results: do the techniques and tools we examine work?If you want to get in touch you can email me at ben@badesign.co and I’m @fiatluxfm on Twitter.

  4. Designing for emotion with Aarron Walter | by epicBagel

    In this podcast, we speak with Aarron Walter, user experience design lead at MailChimp, about designing for emotion.

    Aarron talks about why and how MailChimp aimed not just for usable, but for a pleasurable user experience. We also discuss what’s fuelled the emergence of emotional design, risks with emotional design and why emotional design should be led by the UX team.

    We also talk about what we can expect from Aarron’s exciting new book, ‘Designing for Emotion’. You can download an example of the design persona we discuss over at Aarron’s blog.

  5. Write Your Life: Robert Mills, Designing the Invisible

    This week I’m joined by Robert Mills, studio manager and copywriter at Bluegg, a design agency in Newport, South Wales. We talk about writing to a set structure, which is handy because Rob has just written Designing the Invisible, a book published by Five Simple Steps. The book is broken down into five sections, each containing five chapters. I also wrote to a set structure when I began my novel. I decided (stupidly, on reflection) that each chapter would begin with a letter of the alphabet, which meant that there would be, obviously, 26 chapters. Needless to say, I ended up in a bit of a tangle.In ‘My favourite thing’ I talk about the Kindle Cloud Reader, which was announced this week, while Rob goes for The Atlantic. There is talk of a shark.

  6. Christian Crumlish, Erin Malone | Stop Putting the Front-end Last

    A lot of R&D still puts the front-end last. But considering the user experience throughout product development pays handsomely, say Christian Crumlish and Erin Malone. One study shows design-led businesses outpacing the FTSE 100 by 100 pct. Crumlish and Malone provide cases for Twitter, Dropbox, Hipmunk, and Etsy, outlining how good UX pays, at the 2011 Web 2.0 Conference.

    UX—User Experience is part user interface engineering, graphic design, usability testing, HCI (human-computer interaction), cognitive psychology, and content strategy. It’s best if it’s baked in to the mix, rather than added as frosting on the cake.

    So many of the recent offerings that have succeeded in sparking the public’s interest and curiosity are especially uncomplicated and easy to use. Both imaginative rethinking and pragmatic testing are required, but the result can be a product that holds up against price wars for the value of the experience.

    Malone presents a case from Twitter, in which they found that new users abandoned their accounts soon after signing on. How could they avoid having new users feel like they had showed up for a party but found, at first, an empty room? The answer was in managing experience flow. Making it easy for users is the clever and quick work of ideation, sketching, rapid iteration, and problem-solving, all design mainstays.

    UX design and testing pays. Good design gets free public relations, as users describe the products as "beautiful" or feel the makers especially understand their needs. Simple A/B testing has netted millions of dollars in profits as one graphic or phrase appeals to consumers over another. Malone urges startups to find UX expert help early, where a few well-chosen design considerations can go a long way.

    Christian Crumlish is a writer, information architect, and digital designer. He is a consumer experience evangelist at AOL, an advisor to and director emeritus of the Information Architecture Institute, and co-chair of the monthly BayCHI program. He was the curator of the Yahoo! Design Pattern Library for several years. He is the author of the bestselling The Internet for Busy People, and The Power of Many, and co-author of Designing Social Interfaces with Erin Malone. He has spoken about social patterns at BarCamp Block, BayCHI, SXSW, the IA Summit, Ignite, Web 2.0 Expo, PLoP, IDEA, Web Directions, the Web App Masters Tour, and WebVisions.

    Erin Malone, Principal with Tangible UX, has led design teams and developing social experiences for web and software for over 20 years. Prior to Tangible UX, she spent 4+ years at Yahoo! leading the Platform User Experience Design team on Community products and platforms, helping develop the Yahoo! Open Strategy, building the Yahoo! Design Pattern Library and providing design expertise to YUI (Yahoo! User Interface Library). She led the redesign of the Yahoo! Developer Network, among other Yahoo initiatives.

    Before Yahoo!, Malone was a Design Director at AOL responsible for community applications, Creative Director at AltaVista and chief Information Architect for Zip2. She was the founding editor-in-chief of Boxes and Arrows and author of several articles on interaction design history and design. She is co-author of the book Designing Social Interfaces with Christian Crumlish for O’Reilly Media.
