A new year means a new flood of blog posts about UX and Design trends popping up everywhere. These articles assure us that if we use vivid color gradients, serif types, glitched grids, and material design and we’ll be fine. But this simply isn’t the case.

Working for a global company has given our team the amazing opportunity to travel, meet our dispersed teams and collaborate in three valuable workshops.
When speaking about User Experience (UX) in the digital space, we normally refer to the creation of online products or spaces that give a user a more relevant and meaningful experience.
Yes, a design is meant to look beautiful and to generate emotion, but good UX design makes a project pertinent and useful. Think about it as forming a valuable relationship with your user who will grow to trust a brand they can easily engage with.
Rotary International recently unveiled its new online donation form, used by tens of thousands of people each year to donate to the charity. But calling the finished product a form is like calling the royal wedding an elopement. Amazee Labs Austin partnered with Rotary and RaiseNow to deliver what can only be described as a dynamic online giving application—sweeping, yet nimble, and easy to use.
Last Tuesday all the Amazee front-enders gathered for another edition of the FrontTuesday meeting to talk about the latest front-end topics.

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. Naturally, this can be a little daunting as no red-blooded, Sketch-loving, PC-allergic designer wants to be seen as unfashionable or, heaven forbid, obsolete! For now, let’s leave that in 2017 with my 12-week old Mac Charger.
