Pass it on.

When your work and life excite you, it’s hard to keep it to yourself. Our blog is just part of a larger discussion we’re having on Twitter, Facebook, and in communities all over the web.

Data Visualizations While it’s common practice at Pixo to check color contrast for optimal readability, we don’t always prioritize comparing each color’s distinction from one another. But color distinction becomes a high priority when designing data visualizations, which rely on the variations between color to represent different categories of information. Designers might strive to make this color distinction clear for viewers who perceive colors in a similar way, yet this “one size fits all” approach doesn’t take into account all color vision experiences.

Try this note-taking and prioritization tool The most overwhelming thing when conducting multiple user tests is knowing what to do with all of the insights. As a UX Designer at Pixo, I use a mishmash of techniques to help our team make smart choices when deciding where to put our efforts after a usability test. I eventually created a Google Sheets template (Make a copy for yourself and try it out!) to help me prep for, conduct, and evaluate the results of usability tests.

As a new UX designer, every book I pick up is loaded with advice and ideas I never even knew to look for before I entered the profession. Josh Clark’s Designing for Touch is a snappy introduction to direct user screen interaction design. The text manages to take a look at best practices while simultaneously keeping an open mind about changing industry standards.

JIRA has made project life a lot easier in a lot of ways, but it has also introduced another set of issues focused on standardization. While all our project teams at Pixo use JIRA, that use varies in both good and bad ways. It’s great that JIRA allows us to individualize each project based on specific needs, but we also need consistent practices across the (literal) board in order to use the project-tracking tool more efficiently.

Let’s talk about teammates. Think about the best people you’ve ever worked with. What makes them the cream of the crop to you? How can we be the best people our teammates have ever worked with? For me, the general answer is impact.
