Does your People Ops / HR team have a set of People Experience (PX) design principles?

If not, you should.

Here’s why and how to create some for your team:

What are design principles?

Design principles are a set of core considerations which inform the direction and the overall approach of product design.

What are they for?

Design principles ensure the end product adheres to overall design vision. They allow decisions to be made quickly and accurately by anyone in the design team as decisions can be sense checked against the principles.

If you are in HR or People, you have probably heard the phrase People Experience (PX) as a Product

But what does it mean?

This thread will give you 3 principles to understand PX as a Product and 3 actions to put the concept into action👇🏻
3 core principles to understand PX as a Product
Employees = Customers
People Experience (PX) = Product
People Team = Product Team
3 actions to get you started with PX as a Product:
1. Define your PX Vision:

You can’t build and ship “people product” without clearly outlining what you are solving for. In the same way as you can’t create consumer products without defining the problem you are solving and the value you are creating for your customers

Some Predictions and Trends in UI/UX Design for Designers in the year.🔥🚀

#Mobile-first, wearables, and simplicity are the latest UX/UI #design trends. Designers are now designing user experience around users rather than #products. #personalization is key in 2023 #uxui trends.
#01. Device synchronization.

This trend defines all others. Apps are used because they're available, not because they're good. Products abound. Cheap, expensive, stripped-down, or fully loaded. Choosing is easy. Syncing settings and content between a PC, laptop, phone, tablet...
#02. Mobile-first design

Consequence of previous point. People use mobile devices for many reasons. Flights, calls, window shopping, shopping, and more. Convenience is key.
That's why UX/UI design should be done for everything. Users should be able to understand applications..

Too many people focus on the problem. 🌪📉😖

If you want to #innovate when creating a new product, approach, or system, it's best to start with the ideal. 🤔

Of course we must understand the problem we're trying to solve, but the ideal is the path to the solution. Here's why🧵
Let's start with our brains. They actually function better when in a creative, optimistic state. 🌈

While fear, anxiety, & depression impair our ability to problem-solve and act effectively. 😨

This isn't about Pollyanna optimism, it's about solutions…
Silicon Valley startups, product designers, & creators have found over & over again that starting with the ideal helps them #design better solutions.

This is one of the core pillars of #DesignThinking. Imagine all that's desirable, then narrow down to what's feasible + viable. Image

As of 9/22/2022 update…

The vaccine I was administered & assured on site prior to injection “has no adverse reactions, not even anaphylaxis because there is no PEG” has been pulled from distribution & no longer offered. I am still disabled 18+ mths. 🧵 ImageImageImageImage
2/ I called the # from above, hoping by now, someone knows who I can contact to report adverse health event in Washington State…

But no one knows who is responsible for mass vaccination sites. It’s not publicly available info, not even lead nurses know.
3/ we know contamination existed & doses were released. When manufacturers are allowed to disconnect all information from lot numbers and no one knows who oversees mass vaccination sites or how to report adverse health events, there’s a massive problem in tracking safety signals

Design thinking 101 🎨

Understanding the needs and wants of users is crucial for creating better products.

- What is it and how does it work?

A thread 🧵

#uiuxdesign #designthinking Image
What is Design thinking?

- Design thinking is a process or framework for user-centric design & better design.
- Design Thinking is an ideology supported by an accompanying Process ( NN group)

- It allows designers to think outside of the box.
Rather than building a Fancy product & launch then fail; design thinking allows us to understand users' needs and their pain points and design an effective solution, then test it.

I'm staying in a 5 star resort. It's early evening and I'm sat at an outdoor bar with my girlfriend having a couple of drinks.

It's generally pleasant, but the scene could be better.

And once you see it, you can't unsee it

I can't not notice these kind of details.

It's a hexagonal shaped 'tropical cocktail' bar hut with a central drinks display island.

Over this display, highlighting the bottles of spirits, are some pendant lights. But it's not as good as it could be.

Something's a bit off.
For hospitality, particularly at night, it's absolutely crucial to get this stuff right. Elementary design.

Here's a quick breakdown of the visual experience.

Top 3 things I'd improve asap.

How to avoid a newbie lighting mistake.

#interiordesign #designthinking #designinspiration

Most lighting sucks. There are many ways to screw it up, but, I’m going to give you a very simple design principle so you can avoid a common mistake.

Bad lighting is an active participant in the detriment of the visual experience, working against the desired architecture/ID/landscape ambience. It’s the jarring soundtrack which doesn’t suit the occasion. A negative sensory imposition.

Today, we focus on the Horizon Line.
Whether it’s due to cost, convenience or lack of experience, everyone sticks lighting at high level, usually in ceilings - light blasts down indiscriminately from overhead. This simulates a midday sun.

Which is fine, if...

Hilo sobre actualidad política de mi #Linares:
1 la posibilidad de moción de censura está agitando cosas y permite conocer mejor el brillo de los políticos.
2 no estoy de acuerdo en insultos, desprecios y desaires. Gestionar emociones ante una situación tensa revela capacidades
3 Estoy hablando con líderes y pensadores políticos de todos los bandos (quien quiere, claro).
Todos tienen porción argumental de la situación.
Además, detecto que las relaciones entre las personas políticas de nuestra ciudad están muy deterioradas.
Y también huelo algo peor:
4 Falta aplicar capacidad de negociación sabiendo excluir el interés o motivación personal.
Es decir: todos dicen "yo trabajo por Linares", y a todos se les detecta una marcada necesidad de reconocimiento social e intereses futuros.

Dive-in for a peek at my #process and #designthinking on how I made my latest science infographic: "Comparing How COVID-19 Vaccines and Antiviral Pills Work" ⬇️🧵#COVID #Pfizer #Merck #DIY #infographic #vaccines #WIP #development #Covid_19 #paxlovid A poster showing "How I Made This", and a reproduc
The original inspiration for this piece was the newly marketed antiviral pills by Pfizer and Merck for the treatment of COVID-19. I thought with hearing so much about vaccines this year, and with pills entering the arena, people might be curious about what each does in the body.
When I started researching, I quickly learned that there were many types of vaccines. Here's one chart I found that explains this (left; by Nikita Ramesh, made with @BioRender). My first idea (right) was to convey ALL these types of vaccines against antivirals. A chart showing 7 major types of vaccines technologies and hEarly sketch of research and my arrangement for the infograp

1/ Steve Jobs said #innovation is "saying no to 1000 things" before saying yes

For more than a decade, Apple has used Pablo Picasso's Bull to drive home the lesson

#CES2022 #CES #design #designthinking #tech #innovation @EvanKirstel @jblefevre60 #art
Thx @TrungTPhan for this!
2/ In Dec 1945, Picasso created "The Bull", a series of prints

With each successive one, a bull is simplified & abstracted. Picasso's goal was to find "spirit" of it

Apple employees are taught this philosophy

#CES2022 #CES #design #designthinking #tech #innovation @EvanKirstel
3/ Below is the 1st, 4th & last print

Picasso's bull progresses from:
a realistic drawing
to a deconstructed image (abstract)
to a lines outlining the bull's shape

Anybody who says “the #data don’t lie” either is ignorant or manipulative or both. The data are merely a tool that must be used responsibly & ethically to try to approximate “the truth” …some of which is unmeasurable (yet?). There are MANY #datascience methods & varying results
Everybody gets super excited about this new #AI #ML #machinelearning technique or that

You cannot build a RELIABLE house with low #quality bricks

First, look at the building blocks… meaning, how the #data fields are even defined & how the data are obtained

Who defined them?
I can’t tell you how glad I am that I have done coursework at both @MITSloan AND @StanfordGSB - Former immerses you in a ton of hands on analysis & options for analytic techniques useful in a #datascience job. Latter steps back to frame questions, assess missing data, biases.

Do you work in or around design? Read my @fastcompany article on the toxic overuse and abuse of HMW, a popular #designthinking technique that I think needs to be retired…
Below are some links to the people and articles I mentioned in the article.

I’m grateful that @fastcompany continues to be a space for critical reflections such as my long form piece. Suzanne Lebarre is a great editor!
It was a multi-year process for me to turn my years of fieldnotes on HMW into this article. The HMW is used so ubiquitously as part of workshops globally that many unnamed senior leaders in our space warned me of career suicide if I ever spoke publicly about it

💡 #designthinking

It's important to surround yourself with good design. Ask yourself the hard questions: What works? What could be improved?

I came across this design on @dribbble:… Let's talk about it.

🧵👇🏻 1/16
Dashboards are hard:
- Summarizing *a lot* of info in one place
- Info needs to be easily digestible
- Different people prioritize info differently depending on their use case

This dashboard does a *great* job of taking all those things into consideration

🧵 2/16
The Typography looks great. There's a good mix of thicks and thins that create contrast and help communicate visual hierarchy.

Found this on @dribbble…

Things I like:
- Subtle texture in the background
- Mix of line illustrations w/ photography. I do this a lot in my work to give the design a more "organic" feel and help lead the eye

🧵👇🏻 1/5 Image
Where this design ultimately fails (and it's BIG): It took me **way too long** to realize this site is promoting paying through your watch. It didn't occur to me until I saw the caption: "The fastest way to pay without-touch."

🧵 2/5
My train of thought: "If it's related to touch, shouldn't you see a fingerprint or the palm? ... oh, there are "waves" coming out of the watch ... I get it now."

1/ Recently finished @RogerLMartin's The Design of Business. Here are some of my top takeaways 🧵 #startups #innovation #DesignThinking #StrategicDesign Image
2/ Innovation is about seeing the world not as it is, but as it could be. It's about exploring really "wicked problems" whose solutions can't be found in past experience or proven by data.
3/ "Design thinking" focuses on accelerating the pace at which knowledge advances from mystery (an unexplainable problem) to
heuristic (a rule of thumb that guides us toward a solution) to algorithm (a replicable success formula).

Design Thinking 💡💬

#DesignThinking? Nah!!
We call it ‘Outside the Box’ Thinking 😉 But Why?

A Thread 🧵
It is usually mentioned as ‘outside the box’ thinking, as designers try to develop new ways of thinking that don’t abide by the dominant or additional common problem-solving ways.
Instead of getting stuck into the square process of thinking, studying & working, try out your new venture by implementing #Designthinking today itself.

#DesignResearch - 𝑷𝒂𝒓𝒕 1

Welcome! ✨
I present: A quite interesting thread! 👀

So, we had this course called [ Metodologi Riset Desain ] and tbh it's such a unique concept for us who still have the mindset that the most important thing of design is 'only' the visual -- Image
--as we often forget the research behind a design.

✨"A research driven design has proven to significantly contributed to sharpen designers' assessment to identify design problems articulate users' need, as well as finding the best media and technology for design development."✨
[ Desainer + klien ➡️ untuk Audiens ]
👉 Dibutuhkan RISET!

Desain sebagai sebuah "solusi" tentu butuh riset mendalam guna mengidentifikasi & memecahkan permasalahan.

Metode menyesuaikan kebutuhan, jadi setelah desainer menemukan SATU masalah, dapat dihadirkan BANYAK solusi.
