Investing in User Centric Design is a Good Business Decision

The slides of my keynote in front of the LOIC event on UX/UI design in Luxembourg.

I start the talk by explaining what user interface (UI) design and user experience (UX) designer are. I give advice on how companies start getting to know their users: conducting face to face and remote guerilla user research, online surveys, gathering data from supports, online communities, etc. I then present a few different levels of design maturities within the organisations, what happens at each of those levels and the problems that might arise. I end the talk with advice on "How to sell the benefits of a design and user driven process?".

User can sort the column by using the double arrows next to the table heading title Table rows have an odd/even background. They can have action buttons on the right side of the table. The action button is always an outline button style Table rows can have collapsing elements. When they do, we use - the down arrow for collapsed rows - the up arrow for expanded rows Some tables might have filters / search functionnalities to help users navigate inside the data. Those fonctionalities are displayed on top of the table headings Tables display 10 items by default. At the bottom or the table, the pagination lets user navigate towards other items Grosjean Christophe +352 909 8990 10/04/2018 08:14:41 Grosjean Christophe +352 909 8990 10/04/2018 08:14:41 Filtres Filter Interventions 12/11/2018 A partir de: Cette semaine Aujourd’hui Tous First Name Last Name Email Adresss Phone Number Last Update 12/11/2018 As of: This Week Today All Filters First Name Last Name Email Adresss Phone Number Last Update 13 14 12 10 … 2 3 4 1 Buttons and links Primary buttons Primary buttons are used for the MAIN action on the page / view Default Desactivated Hover and active Button Button Button fill: #FFFFFF 100% border: 1px center * #0072CE 100% fill: #E3F0FF 100% border: 1px center * #8BB8E8 100% fill: #0072CE 100% border: 1px center * #0072CE 100% color: #0072CE 100% font-face: Roboto-Medium font-size: 14px color: #0072CE 100% font-face: Roboto-Medium font-size: 14px color: #FFFFFF 100% font-face: Roboto-Medium font-size: 14px Default Desactivated Hover and active Button Button Button Button Default Desactivated Hover and active fill: #0072CE 100% border: 1px center * #0072CE 100% fill: #8BB8E8 100% border: 1px center * #8BB8E8 100% fill: #005090 100% border: 1px center * #005090 100% color: #FFFFFF 100% font-face: Roboto-Medium font-size: 14px color: #FFFFFF 100% font-face: Roboto-Medium font-size: 14px color: #FFFFFF 100% font-face: Roboto-Medium font-size: 14px Button Button fill: #FFFFFF 100% border: 1px center * #A1A3A6 100% fill: #EDEDED 100% border: 1px center * #BABCBF 100% fill: #FFFFFF 100% border: 1px center * #0072CE 100% color: #5B6770 100% font-face: Roboto-Medium font-size: 14px color: #A1A3A6 100% font-face: Roboto-Medium font-size: 14px color: #0072CE 100% font-face: Roboto-Medium font-size: 14px Outline secondary buttons Outline secondary buttons are used for the secondary actions on the page / view, actions that are performed the less often.
