UIE Podcasts: Redesigning an Enterprise App to Battle the Clutter Tax  

Play

[ Transcript Available ]

If we keep adding functionality, we start to clutter our enterprise application’s design. That clutter can create a substantial burden on the user while obscuring the functionality we want them to use.

In this episode of the UIE Podcast, Amanda Linden talks about her challenge of fighting back clutter in Asana’s design. Hagan Rivers talks about her techniques for helping enterprise app teams deal with the issue of clutter.

Hagan will be giving one of 6 daylong workshops at UX Immersion: Interactions May 1-3 in Portland, Oregon. For more information on Hagan’s and the other workshops, visit uxi17.com.

Recorded: March 2017

Marc Rettig – Change the Story—and the Conversation Live!  

Design leaders are unsung revolutionaries. They’re often at the forefront of culture change, advocating for a new conversation about creativity and quality. The old one involved meetings, presentations, and top-down mandates, and little to no input from customers.
