Last week, I spoke at the Boston IxDA night of Short Talks, where I gave a 10-minute (!) presentation called Case Study: A Discount Approach to Comparing Multiple Design Alternatives.
Here’s what the session was described as:
What’s the Best Way to Compare Multiple Design Alternatives?
Good design practice suggests you create multiple sketches, which eventually evolve into full-out design alternatives. However, once you have those alternatives, what’s the best way to decide which one wins?
I will review one approach and talk about the pitfalls and advantages to evaluating multiple designs at once.
Because of An Event Apart and our Virtual Seminar, I didn’t have as much time to prepare as I would’ve liked. So, I ended up creating the entire presentation while sitting in the back of the room, waiting my turn to present.
Here’s how it turned out:
I should mention that the subject of this talk was inspired by the UIEtips article, A Counter-Intuitive Approach to Evaluating Design Alternatives, published on May 19. Thanks to Pauric for inviting me to the meeting to present the idea.Tweet
