Triangle UXPA - Evening Talk: Intuitive Design with Everett McKay

Giving my Intuitive Design talk to Triangle UXPA in Raleigh NC on Oct 3rd. Learn a framework to understand intuitive UI design, plus get a chance to win a free book. Info and registration at https://bit.ly/2zu044d. Hope to see you there! #iuibook intuitiveuibook.com

Having an intuitive UI is a top goal for every design project, yet surprisingly few people have a strong understanding of what this concept really means. Designers are no different. (A quick test: ask some designers to define it. Most likely you won’t be impressed by their answers.)

Simplicity Is Highly Overrated - jnd.org

My FREE webinar: "Practical simplicity: What it is and how to get it" is tomorrow. As always, I will present my unique point of view--which in this case is super important because many people are extremely confused by what simplicity is all about. Case in point: Ever read Norman's "Simplicity is Highly Overrated"? (bit.ly/2MJEqgZ) Find out why he's way off and how to refute such arguments.
I will give you a perspective you won't get anywhere else--no platitudes or KISS nonsense. Plus, I will be giving away a free copy of my Intuitive Design eBook. I hope you agree my free webinars are the best deal in UX design training. Please register at https://bit.ly/2wL6RH4. And tell your friends!
Hope to see you tomorrow!
