comment Has user testing ever revealed that you have to change your app's UI colour?
Often colors (including black) pack emotional association for users, which is why I've seen users react to colorful / bold-colored UIs more so than 'light' and 'white' UIs. While white also has meaning, but users just see it everywhere and are often used it it.

comment Best UI for filtered search with many filtering options as opposed to single text field
To me this seems like an intimidating interface. Would be fine if it was part of a workflow where users are trained, but overwhelming to a new user. Just my thought.

My question is about using lots and lots of filters that are all optional, and displaying them elegantly.

comment Optimal page content for search page with no query?
another ++ for "You don't have to be afraid of blank pages." I think large blank space is often visually jarring because we're not accustomed to it. Better that than unnecessary / confusing content. Less is more!

comment Do UX guy needs to be good at making designs using Photoshop and converting them into HTML, CSS?
More technical knowledge will never hurt as it enables smoother communication and greater trust between designers and technical members of the team.
