UX, UI, and visual design are closely related and often intertwined. Like Escher's famous drawing of hands co-creating themselves on paper, to a new viewer, it can be difficult to know exactly where the pixels stop and where UX design begins.
Hello again. After my last post, we started looking into some additional inspiring design trends, but this time I've approached things a bit differently, by focusing more on User Experience. Yes, it’s awesome arriving at a website filled with animation, vibrant colour, bold typography and beautiful graphics; but what about functionality? After all, a website has to serve a purpose. Whether a brand wants a user to click a button, fill in a form or read an article, a good design can take them there, it has potential to engage the user, and can gently guide them to the ultimate conversion.
Exploring current design trends is a vital part of any designer’s role, at least that’s what most good designers believe. Unsurprisingly, most designers love to judge the work of their fellow creatives, by comparing their projects to current design trends showcased online.

Around 130 professionals who care about user experience design and usability gathered last Saturday at ZHdK (Toni Areal) in Zürich to share and discuss all the hot topics on and around UX. Here are a few of my thoughts and impressions of that day.
Have you ever thought that the placement of cookies in the shop window and their quantity can affect your perception of which cookies are more popular? Have you ever considered that literally everything around you is architectured in a certain way? Have you ever had a feeling that Information architecture is everywhere and in everything? This may sound weird, but this is true. Some time ago I was lucky to attend a workshop “Information Architecture for Everyone” given by Abby Covert, and I can’t stop thinking about the lessons I learned. It is now time to share them with you.
I was fortunate to attend the 3rd sold out UX South Africa Conference on 25 and 26 November, at the V&A Waterfront’s Atlantic Imbizo, overlooking the picturesque Cape Town harbour. It was a great setting for 2 days of UX education, inspiration and networking.
