Introducing the Practice1:59 with Nick Pettit
When giving feedback on a project, you want to be clear and constructive. Think about the color, organization, shapes, and how the design makes you feel.
[MUSIC] 0:00 Hi, I'm Nick. 0:09 One of the most important skills to have as a UX designer is the ability to 0:10 give and receive feedback on a project. 0:15 Feedback is what makes us better designers. 0:18 Each person brings their own unique viewpoint and 0:21 looks at your project through their own lens. 0:24 When giving feedback on a project, you wanna be clear and constructive. 0:27 Think about the color, organization, shapes, and how the design makes you feel. 0:31 Today, we're going to critique Books to Scrape. 0:37 This is an educational site used for 0:41 developers to practice scraping content from the web. 0:43 When starting a critique, first try to think of who the users are for the site. 0:48 Keep them in mind as you are critiquing. 0:54 One great place to start is the strengths. 0:57 What is working well in the design you're critiquing? 1:01 Which elements would the user appreciate or enjoy? 1:04 Once you've listed out the strengths, 1:08 start thinking about the design's weaknesses. 1:10 Where could be the design be stronger? 1:13 What would make a better experience for the user? 1:15 Think about the elements and principles of design, design patterns and, 1:18 of course, the users. 1:23 Give the designer a few ideas or 1:25 suggestions to turn their weaknesses into strengths. 1:27 You don't have to fix their whole design or give an answer for 1:31 every weakness, but it can help to give them a place to start. 1:35 Let's take a look at the website called Books to Scrape. 1:41 You can find a link to it in the notes associated with this video. 1:44 Click around and start taking notes on the strengths and weaknesses you are noticing. 1:48 Put together your feedback, and 1:54 in the next video, I'll show you what I came up with. 1:56
