Why are Men wearing Women tights on Flipkart.com

Its hilarious and i’m grossed out at the same time watching men wearing women’s tights or they could be actually men wearing men’s tights but then what kind of g*y back-end employee would have this kind of fetish to do this to the poor male model. Or may be there is section of audience that demand this.

Not sure but I’m glad their face is hidden.

 

 

This one is epic.

One of the main concerns of any online portal and product would be acquiring new customers and users aka Acquisition.
More often than not i see businesses take this crucial aspect for granted by designing complicated user journeys and more complexed user onboarding process.

However this is not done deliberately but its the lack of understanding their users and gap between what the business goals are and what the user/consumer goals are.

And when there is a wide gap between goals of the business and goals of the user, the result is going no where but south.

Designing a User Experience Strategy is a matter of logic and empathy.

Couple of things required to do this is:

  1. User Study / Research : Studying what the end goal of the user is. For eg in this form the form the user wants to simply book a test ride. By adding hurdles like extra and irrelevant input boxes its making the journey long, tiring, confusing and boring.
  2. Communication: Give users what they need. I donot want to do product enquiry. Don’t force me to. By writing irrelevant information and content you are expecting the user to be a super user. It does not work that way. Be simple and minimalistic unless you are adding value by clutter just declutter.
  3. Time : Its the fast age. Dont expect users to sit and work for you. They would rather leave than get bored filling your forms unless you have a monopoly say you are the central govt and filling that form is a matter of your life and citizenship it is highly unlikely the user would choose to do it.

Product Designing  can be confusing but if applied common sense its easier than what you think.

And if you see no savior and have no clue “baby just eat the data”

Data Analysis is the God’s word. It will always speak the truth. Never ignore it. It will tell you your demons and what should be your next step and incase of a disaster your SOS plan.

India is now moving ahead with the brilliant  #digitalIndia  campaign and now that alot of new ideas and technology are being embraced to make this campaign a successful  one, the first being the #netneutrality victory!

During the Drupal Con Asia Summit 2016 held at IIT Bombay – Powai I put forward my concerns on to some IT govt officials as to why our indian govt websites for eg: http://incometaxindiaefiling.gov.in/ , http://passportindia.gov.in/AppOnlineProject/welcomeLink and some more and lacking behind in terms of user experience and usability.

A healthy discussion with some Govt officials and Public Private Partnerships representatives, SME’s assured a better ux in the near future. They also asked me to send my feedback on how we can make things better on that front. Its a good start!

I also managed to collect alot of user feedback on the experience  they hav had using some of these websites.  Posting one of the Video Review i collected from

A Little About the Event:

The #drupalGov & #drupalcon summit at IIT Bombay ( https://events.drupal.org/asia2016 ) was an amazing journey filled with vouching for the free open source softwares, drupal as a FOSS, tech, platforms, etc.

Interacting with members of DIETY (Department of Electronics & Information Technology  and National Informatics Centre Services Inc. (NICSI) India during the sessions was a great experience.

I reviewed the www.justdial.com website a while ago when they had launched their new revamped design. So when someone says revamping we definitely expect better version than existing one. The expectations are always high in terms of the overall experience that the user envisions from the site something similar to what the audience expects from any sequel of a blockbuster movie unfortunately very often than not the audience is let down. Its the similar case with www.justdial.com

In the effort to to do a lot of things right they have successfully managed to do a lot of it wrong. The home page is extremely cluttered and suffocates me to no end.

Makes me question what kind of creative brief the ux team really had been given.

The stock images are not unto the mark, too many colours abruptly placed headings in the middle and whats funny is the EMERGENCY section which indicates that yea it is for emergency is placed like a jigsaw puzzle. Yes the home page does look like a jigsaw puzzle.

A lame user has to really stress out to use the site.

Something as simple as LOCAL LOCATION based search is missing on the home page. This is the biggest drawback in terms of ux and user onboarding. Again I’m wondering why designers take liberty to go so wrong that users pay the penalty for it.

JustDial is about a local search that helps people connect to services at a very local level unfortunately here they have failed to establish that.

Is user experience all about users?

To design the best User Experience , pay attention to what users do, not what they say or ask for. Users don’t know what they want. They can only tell us what they don’t want or dislike and this is a universal phenomenon. For example: the audience going for movies can only like or dislike the movie they will never be able to exactly tell how the movie could have been better had the makers done this or that. Its a gamble in a sort of way.

Hence user studies can only aid this much is building a great user experience. Eventually the more empathetic you are towards solving the problem of the users the better are the chances of success in your user experience.

UX is everywhere

old-camera-3-1425133
The world is moving ahead of time and and at a speed that’s not so easy to catch up with. With new innovative products and services cropping up everyday one needs to be at ease of having good life experiences to cherish every moment and that happens with beautiful experiences. Thats how we can sum up what GOOD USER EXPERIENCE is all about.
An amalgamation of past present learnings and our instinctual reactions to current situations. Sounds romantic.
User Experience is all about the EXPERIENCE that a  user feels after or while interacting with a product, service, environment or company. This is what makes his perception of the whole.
 
Experiences can only be felt. It can never be hardcoded and hence these are subjective and they directly deal with INDIVIDUAL FEELINGS and THOUGHTS of human beings and plays on human PSYCHOLOGY to take decisions and behave in a particular way.
 
A smell in a room is a very good example of physical bad user experience.
 
It extends from a chair design to kitchen design to a toy design.
Mind you experience design is different from UI or graphic design.
NO! a bed bug in your bed is not an example of bad user experience is a proof that the bed us unhygienic.
 
UX also covers a person’s perceptions of the practical aspects such as utility, ease of use and efficiency of the system. User experience is dynamic, because it changes over time as the circumstances change.
User Experience Technology is extensively deployed in the digital world with more and more products becoming digitised.
Precisely why its more important for people to be more acquainted with it.
