In this talk I’ll show you a few easy examples of how to do that.

It’s easy to get caught up in bias when it comes to a project that you’re closely involved with. One way to get around this involves inviting unbiased third parties to try using your website, while narrating their experience. You may be surprised to see the major differences that come to light in terms of what you expected to happen versus how people actually navigate your website.
This process, known as user testing, can quickly become expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. With experience designing websites for 15+ years, UX enthusiast Maddy Osman will provide an actionable process (complete with tool suggestions) for performing user tests on a budget.

Want to know how I do this? Well… I guess you’ll have to attend this talk to find out!

October 9, 2019 — When we think about UX, we’re often too focused on fonts, colors, and flow to think about microcopy – those small bits of text that guide users through almost every part of a web interface. These words may be tiny, but they can make a significant difference in the usability of your design and even affect your site’s conversion rates.
Key takeaways. In this talk, I will share copywriting and communication tips that will immediately improve your user interface microcopy, such as error messages and interface instructions, so your users experience less frustration and more delight.
Talk attendees will get a quick introduction to branding and communication principles, basic UX principles, and how to evaluate effective copy in website flows. They will also see real examples of before and after situations where simple changes made a big difference and how and where to apply the same changes to their own sites.
