Target size was introduced as a criteria in WCAG2.1, and is due to be joined by target size (minimum) in WCAG2.2 this summer. Criteria 2.5.8 target size (minimum) will be a AA success criteria, which in practice will mean that many more designers will need to think about target size and learn to design with the criteria in mind.

“You need to stop doing the things you don’t want to do. If you don’t want to do wireframes, stop doing wireframes.”

We talk about personal journeys, coaching, communication, humanising UX – seeing your “users” and the people you work with as human beings.

Our discussion looks at how tools change, the shift from tools to methods, career paths, play and experimentation, and future collegues – and ultimately that the core of UX is understanding humans and make better design decisions based on that understanding.

These interviews were originally recorded and aired as part of a UXPodcast special edition at UXLx Masters in February 2021.

Everything in your life has been designed by someone, and this insight is a powerful way to understand the world, and everything that happens in it.

In his book, Scott tries give designers better stories, better language, better metaphors, to explain what we do – and explain why it’s important. and why we’re worthy of trust.

In this episode Scott also shares with us four simple questions that can help put projects and situations back on track and help us deliver good design.

We talk about the passion that designers have, but how they rarely have the power to act on it as the power lies elsewhere. We discuss “design theatre” and what makes good vs bad design.

Per and James discuss two articles that have grabbed their attention – we feature articles about information architecture and following the principles that our brains expect from physical experiences, plus smart questions you should ask during job interviews.

Article one is Websites are not living rooms and other lessons for information architecture by Sarah R Barrett. “While there is a lot that IA can learn from actual architecture or city planning, websites aren’t buildings or cities, and they don’t have to work like them. Instead, they should be designed according to the same principles that people’s brains expect from physical experiences.”

Our second featured article is Things I wish UX candidates would ask me during interviews by Nati Asher. “And then, when it seems to come to an ending, I will ask: ‘Do you have any questions for me?‘ This is not a triviality, and definitely not out of politeness. No matter how much I ask and the answers I get — I usually learn more about a candidate, their maturity, and expectations from their questions to me than anything else”.
