Series #2 Wrapped Up: Zoraab knocking the socks off UX

theuxlab:

As a self-motivated (and self-taught) designer with a desire to focus on UX, I’m keen on learning as much as I can. Fortunately, there is a plethora of resourceful content available. However, as the field itself can be broad and roles can be blurred, the initial process in determining which methodologies and deliverables to use can be disorientating. As I’ve continued to read and take courses, even participated in hackathons & the Startup Chile program, and attended meetups and conferences given by the field’s associations and experts, I’m grateful to the community for being so informative; yet, what I still found lacking was the opportunity to apply the knowledge learned while collaborating with others designers …until I found the UX Lab!

Introducing THE UX LAB

The UX Lab consist of GUIDED HANDS-ON workshop(s) working in teams with other designers, ranging from new to experienced, in a supportive learning environment warmly led by Meagan and Sean. The concept of partnering up with a startup to help them build a better UX design is absolutely brilliant. The ability to brainstorm with feedback and see the different approaches and proposals resulting in a real live solution implemented soon is awesome! A win-win for all: the startup, the designers AND the users!

Introducing ZORAAB

During this series, we worked with Zoraab – a wonderful sister & brother team (Tina & Sunny) founded to provide an alternative to the bland sock lifestyle. It’s a beautiful site that not only offers an online retail section to purchase an eclectic assortment of mens’ socks, but a monthly “sockscription” service, where you never have to shop for socks again! A great concept, depending upon your needs and preference, different styles of socks will be deliver to you.

ZORAAB + THE UX LAB =

GET READY TO HAVE YOUR SOCKS KNOCKED OFF!

So happy to be a part of this 😊

Inhabiting Infrastructures: Indian Stepwells | Socks Studio

The stepwells are generally storage and irrigation tanks in which sets of steps must be descended in order to reach for water and maintain the well itself. These structures are mostly common in western India and in arid regions of South Asia where they provide regular supply in regions affected by heavy seasonal fluctuations in water availability.

The stepwells, (the erliest date to 600 AD), essentially appear as infrastructural monuments for water collection, huge artifacts somewhere between landscape and architecture sunken in the earth. They are usually composed of two constant elements, a well and an access route: the well collects monsoon rain percolating through layers of fine silt (to filter particulates), eventually reaching a layer of impermeable clay. The second elements, the staircases, are descended to reach water and allow the use of the infrastructure. There are no two identical stepwells, as each one of them, – about 3000 were built -, reveals specific features in the shape and in the decorative motives; in some cases the stepwells host galleries and chambers around the well.

UX Designer denied interview with own mom

I’m doing some initial user research for a side project I’m working on and sent out a survey to family and friends as one of the first steps. In the survey, respondents could opt-in to a follow-up interview.

I sent the survey to 27 people.

13 responded.

1 declined the interview.

That person was my mom.

Yep, that happened.

Enlargements by Johan Rosenmunthe

"It’s said (cliche alert!) that a picture is worth a thousand words, but this well-worn notion feels revived in Enlargements, which examines a photo’s capacity to hold innumerable stories in synchronicity, whether we realise it or not. It begins with one big shot of a Manhattan skyline before successively zooming, enlarging, and cropping different slices of the image, creating an eerie visual essay that leaves us wondering, among other things: Is that nun going to jump?"

this never gets old

I met the creator of this a month ago and he said he got a lot of hate mail from dudebros who thought that he was a woman complaining about these problems.

If you haven’t seen Scott Benson’s “But I’m A Nice Guy” watch it here. (And Scott’s tumblr is here.)

Sometimes, it’s best said with a gif.
