Independently Good Design

Independently Good Design


The foosball, the snacks, the scale - life at a big design firm can be really exciting. But at independent studios, design culture still flourishes. In this episode, taped live at Adobe MAX, we explore life at independent design studios, with Jason Hardy of Century, Jennifer Gonzales of Hugo & Marie, and Kemp Attwood of Area 17.
Can an app really help you fall in love? Sometimes using a dating app feels like getting hit by cupid’s arrow - and sometimes it feels like you’ve been stung. We talk to designers and daters to see whether the UX of these apps is meant to help you find that someone special, or just to keep you swiping left indefinitely.
Faking Good Design

Faking Good Design


The world of FUI or fantasy user interface design is responsible for on-screen depictions of UX. Like the heads up displays for superheroes, or what a hacker sees as she cracks the government’s mainframe. All of these worlds are designed by someone. But, when it comes to designing these worlds, the lines between fiction and reality are often blurred. How do FUI designers create the futures we see on screen, and how do they influence the traditional designers who are building our real-life futures?
Design critics Jessica Helfand and Emily Heyward, founder of Red Antler, discuss what's at stake when everything looks the same -- and what designers can do about it.

On this special live episode of Wireframe, we dive into the brand new territory of Voice UX design. How can designers to approach voice not just as a technology, but also as a design challenge? Our guests are Katie Briggs (NPR) and Will Hall (RAIN Agency).
This episode asks: what's the difference between designing for accessibility versus designing inclusively? To find the answers we look at everything from WordPress blogging software to the Xbox controller. We even start with some early lessons from, of all places, TV’s “French Chef,” Julia Child! Bon appetit!
Is Good Design Good for You?

Is Good Design Good for You?


The “Like” button was a huge triumph for Facebook, or was it? Now more than ever we’re all wondering if our traditional definition of “good” design is actually in our best interests. In this episode, we take a look at the intersection of ethics and design.
A few years from now, augmented reality may render most screens obsolete, as computing becomes integrated into the world around us. This presents a host of challenges for designers: What do we want an augmented reality world to look like?

Good Design is Good Civics

Good Design is Good Civics


The Boston Mayor’s Office was having a problem: Not enough residents were reporting their own problems into the city. Sure, the 311 phone line had its old school devotees. But Boston decided they could reach a whole new population by creating a brand new 311 mobile app. The only issue? Turning a human-operated phone line into a mobile app isn’t easy. Designers at the mayor’s office looked around at another city’s 311 app—and made their own share of mistakes—to figure out how to get it done.
Good Design is Human
