This week: Why Apple stages its product releases for maximum impact, how a new font will help you learn, focus on human emotion for better UX outcomes, oh and by the way UX is dead — long live VX!
Here are the things I found interesting on the web this week.
// FONTS THINGS
“Australian researchers say they have developed a new tool that could help students cramming for exams — a font that helps the reader remember information.”
// SERVICE DESIGN THINGS
“Focusing on emotion and the human element helps us to create value in our outputs and better outcomes for our users.”
// UX THINGS
“The UX movement transformed the digital landscape in a matter of years, and the companies that didn’t get on board were never able to recover. Today, the same kind of movement is in motion. Except this time it’s not UX. It’s VX (that’s viewer experience). And it’s huge.”
// LEGENDS OF DESIGN THINGS
“In Gary Hustwit’s highly anticipated new documentary ‘Rams’, the legendary industrial designer indicts the world he helped create.”
// APPLE PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT THINGS
“…when [do you] release all of the different versions of [a] new product? If you are like most product managers, you make them all available on the same day… However, over at Apple they think that they’ve come up with a better way to go about doing this.”
Compiled with ❤️ in Qatar
Every week I read stuff on the web that I think would help Qatar-based tech startups design and build brilliant products. I save up all the interesting things and publish them here, and send them out via tinyletter.com/jennyellenbrown
