Imposter syndrome is a psychological pattern of behavior which causes you to doubt your achievements and experience a persistent fear of being exposed as a fraud. Let’s be honest, everyone feels it at some point in their career — especially at the very beginning.
3 Tips How to Improve Your Designs 😇
Designing a beautiful designs is not enough these days … You need to provide users with great user experience ... Here are a few tips for you.
🔍1) Talk To The Users
User interviews can significantly impact your design decisions and outcome in a very positive way ... Interviews will help you to get in to users shoes and understand their strugglers and challenges they are facing ... It can be as simple as scheduling a few meetings with target or existing users and asking them predefined questions ... These interviews and feedback sessions should continue during entire design cycle.
🖊2) Work On Copywriting/Storytelling
Design helps users to solve their problems or full-fill their needs ... During their experience with your design you tell them story ... Usually this happens in the typographical form ... Without the text users will more likely not fully understand the message you are trying to tell them ... Crafting the meaningful texts that are going to resonate with the end user is hard and often overlooked ... Try to put extra effort on the copywriting and ideally pair with the professional.
📲3) Aesthetics vs Usability
Do not compromise overall user experience with the aesthetics ... Always put users needs and their goals on the first place ... If your solutions looks nice but it is not intuitive for the users it is not good design ... Try to establish solid user experience first and then elevate it visually ... Do not get me wrong it should look great ... But it needs to solve the actual problem of the users first.
➡️ I personally try to always focus on the solution of the problem first ... Then validate it with the users and only then fully focus on the visual design.
