I've been a web designer for roughly a decade and while I tested out Adobe Edge Reflow and Adobe Muse, I don't use them professionally. I'm not ruling out using them for websites, though I don't see myself using them for web-based applications. Applications generally need to be edited in IDE like Eclipse, which means you want the cleanest code possible, and ...

I have been designing and building websites for about 5 years now, and tend to avoid tools and frameworks that claim to make the job easier - not because I don't believe those claims, but because they are often not the right solutions for me personally. Early in my first web design role, my employers tried to hook me up with software like Dreamweaver, and ...

From my experience as a Web Designer, most people design in Photoshop or Illustrator. In a professional environment, designers and developers are almost always separate people. So the person who designs the site, is not the person who builds it. They're two completely different skill sets, and both designers and developers are experts in their own fields. ...

Jenn Lukas wrote an article on A List Apart [April 9, 2014] showing how you can use Chrome's Accessibility Developer Tools to easily test color contrasting.

There are two things that you should remember about personas: They are designed to generate empathy with the user. They are poor user models (since they focus too much attention on single people), but they evoke a human response from people in the design team. They are tools for creating a good user experience. They are meant for the whole team. Personas ...

Personas should be created using demographics of users who are going to be using your product. Basing them off of information gathered but surveying, information from Google Analytics, etc would be best. http://uxdesign.smashingmagazine.com/2012/01/10/it-works-for-you-a-user-centric-guideline-to-product-pages/ If you are looking to how to create a persona ...

There are apps like Mariner Persona that give you a form to fill out. I've never used software like that though because they make you fill in stuff like height, weight and eye color, irrelevant things. I normally create a scope of information relevant to the project I'm working on. Demographics, professions, hobbies, ethnicity, etc. Then I use a program ...

Your main goal is to get feedback early and often as possible. As there are many tools available at your disposal it's usually up to you to determine the best approach for testing which can rely heavily on available resources, deadlines, etc. Each project is unique so your process may (will likely) be different for each one. Due to the speed and lowest ...

HTML, CSS, and JavaScript will give you the best fidelity and control, but will take the most time. It's quite easy to host these kinds of prototypes on GitHub Pages, if you're okay sharing them publicly. Pencil is a free/open source prototyping tool that might work but doesn't really feel "Mac-native" if that's a requirement for you. Invision App is ...
