What is meant by Work-Life Balance? It’s the ratio of time spent on work tasks to time spent on the things you love-family, socializing, friends, travel, hobbies, and just relaxing.
But talking to my colleagues, I see that many of them work 8–10 hours a day, sometimes take work at home, and spend their free time not on friends and hobbies, but on self-development and improvement of skills. And someone is…
In the process of working on a project, most of the solutions the designer proposes lend themselves to analysis and criticism. The latter is an integral part of the process of creating good design. But only on one condition: criticism must be constructive.
The purpose of the critique is to improve the design, not just to evaluate it.
The other day I came across an article about design critique, in particular why it is useful to get feedback from the team and why it is important to learn how to present design competently to the client and colleagues. …
I don’t embark on a UX design unless research has been done. This includes UX Research. It can include analysis of competitors, analysis of the design of other products, or familiarity with publications on the subject. And I noticed that the days when only Google knew all the answers are gone. After all, the Internet is not limited to Google. In fact, the result — the final product design — will depend on the choice of information source, on the ability to conduct Internet research, on the quality of the UXResearch conducted.
A prototype is a tool for visually demonstrating to the client and the team how all the elements and modules of a project will work together, how users will interact with a website, application or product.
From a design perspective, prototypes help to gauge the level of user engagement, the effectiveness of their interaction with the product, derive a formula for their overall behaviour and see how they react to the design.
I’ve noticed that we use prototypes more often as a tool for testing apps, websites and products. …
Have you ever considered that the result of a designer’s work can influence patterns of behaviour and shape people’s habits? Some solutions, like computer games, can be addictive. Others may increase anxiety and panic attacks. Others can inspire confidence and bring positive emotions.
I came across an interesting study on how poor product design and ignoring the basic rules of good design have negative consequences. I will share what I think are some of the most interesting examples.
I remember perfectly the moment when I decided to move out of business analysis and fully immerse myself in the field of design. I simply stopped fighting with myself at one point and decided to do something that I really enjoyed and enjoyed doing. At that moment, my new beginning was Design. I completely changed the vector of my movement from numbers and analytics to research and pixels. I remember this time with great warmth and awe because from that moment I started doing things that really drove me and allowed me to absorb new knowledge like a sponge.
👀 Educated your eyes
There is such a thing as: “Educated your eyes” How to learn to see the invisible?
This concept is not covered, but I constantly meet it in the design community. Many designers are fond of other related creative professions, such as photography, painting, in order to teach their eyes to look at the beautiful and creatively. There are many different ways to show your eyes the beautiful: to go to the museum, look at the exhibits of modern art and so on.
There are even a few scientific studies that confirm the fact that say that…
I’m completely sure that every designer who works with mobile app design sooner or later asked yourself a question and type in Google search bar: How to create screenshots for Apple Store?
I also once was in a similar situation, until I decided to create a special article about my experience in order to share with you my observations about this issue. I figured this out for a long time and there are many other articles on this subject. …
Bright and never ceasing to amaze Barcelona. Many articles have already been written on the query: “What to see in Barcelona?”.

If you are as lazy as I am in terms of preparing for the upcoming trip, then this article will save you time searching for useful information.
Services such as Netflix, Spotify are already focused on a more user-friendly interface. And in the near future will be even more personalized.
What does Netflix already know about us, thanks to the user experience?
A study conducted by professor and author Barry Schwarz at Swarthmore College showed that too many options can lead to stress, anxiety and discontent. This is the most important factor on which the UX and UI of the user’s streaming journey on the Netflix content is built.
Psychologist Barry Schwartz is trying to expose the almost sacred sociocultural principle of Western societies freedom of choice…
