In an age defined by rapid technological advancements and evolving societal expectations, the concept of experience design has emerged as a critical factor in shaping interactions, services, and perceptions.
Urban Emu, a leading web developer and digital design-driven “Experience” agency, this month was awarded ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 27001 Certifications, a globally recognized standard that ensures products and services for clients meet the highest quality standards.
Many startups struggle to create an effective online presence, especially when multiple competitors dominate their niche. That’s where good User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX) design comes in.
How often have you felt completely drained, sometimes after less than an hour, while participating in a virtual meeting? Studies have shown that there are some basic reasons this happens. More importantly, there are simple ways to prevent it.
Virtual meetings have become an everyday occurrence and an important communication tool as we continue to navigate the new normal of split teams — some virtual and some back in the office. But, what's the best equipment for virtual meetings and events? Here's what we use at Urban Emu.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, leaders were forced to make some difficult decisions — fast. Among them was how to equip their employees to work virtually. We watched as some organizations and agencies raced to the trendiest offerings. We chose a different path.
There's a design principle known as the "Rule of Three." It suggests that items grouped in threes are more appealing to the eye. This is also an easy way to remember that there are three items that can vastly improve how you look and sound in virtual meetings and events.
User Experience (“UX”) is a term that describes design strategies that create the best possible experience for the customer such as on a website, in a mobile app, in a vehicle, or throughout the e-commerce checkout process.
Why is 508 Compliance important? If you’ve taken a ride on a bus or looked for a place to park in front of your local grocery store, you know that there are accommodations made for people with disabilities. The same holds true for people with disabilities when navigating their digital life on federal websites and applications.
Even if you don’t work in the world of design, it’s possible that you’ve heard the term user experience (UX.) Lately, there has been a lot of buzz about UX and how its practices can help build better websites, apps, branding, products, and more.
Amazon recently opened a modern-day grocery store to the public in Seattle, Washington, where grocery shopping is as easy as download, shop, and go. That’s it! Amazon Go is making it possible for shoppers to not hate (maybe even love) the food store experience.
The value of user experience (UX) design isn't confined to digital products, though technology is where the practice gained prominence. The most successful business enterprises are integrating UX along the line, and public relations and communications are no exception.
Once upon a time… That’s a phrase that takes us back to our childhood. It filled us with anticipation. We knew when we heard it, a story was about to unfold. I recently heard the quote: “The shortest distance between two people is a story.”
