2020, the year of sweatpants, has brought nearly all physical interactions to a halt, forcing everything into digital mediums.

Tools should be an extension of ourselves, keep up with our speed…

Focusing on onboarding is critical to the health of your product. In this fleeting first impression, your product needs to shorten users’ time-to-value, get them to that ‘aha moment,’ strengthen your brand, and do it all fast!

As a UX consultant, I get hired to lead projects that range from pixel-perfect validated designs, to ideation workshops, to all styles of user research (blue sky ← → current pain points). The user research projects are arguable the most exciting, the most energizing for the team, and the hardest to articulate the process. I’ve decided to put together my ‘top 5 learnings’ in how to successfully present a research readout, which covers a small part of that process. These learnings are from my past 3 years as a researcher, both at frog design and now working for myself. …

http://agilmore.com/ — An artist who spoke at eyeO 2018

This summer, I had the great privilege of attending EyeO (June 3–8 2018). Innumerable topics that encompass the intersection of Art, Technology, and Data were covered, but one common thread has left an imprint on my brain. That is: the Sisyphean 21st century task of disambiguating fact from fiction. That’s right…


Three rules from a seasoned UX designer, user researcher, and product builder at frog design

If you are building any AI product, you must user test. To get the most quality out of your user testing, follow these three rules:

Whatever you are testing, it must be tested in context. In my work at frog design, our religion is human centered design, so we take this very seriously and it warrants incredible results. Here are some examples of context:

1 — Testing voice UI for cars:

Do this with a ‘Drive along.’ The user is driving; the designer is in the front seat with a script posing as the Ai.

2 — Testing a chatbot (level 1):

The first tier of testing chatbots in context is to simply text…


Redefine Self-worth, Call your representative (x2), Become an Artist (metaphorically speaking)

‘Rick and Morty’ warn us all of what might happen :)

This article is not meant to be alarmist, rather the opposite. It is meant to mentally prepare humans for the next phase in human-computer-collaboration. As we get one step closer to singularity we will find ourselves, in all industries, having more time on our hands and more control relinquished to computers and algorithms. This can be an amazingly positive era for human beings if we transition into it correctly.

This article aims to educate readers of a new mindset and toolset — to galvanize us all to ensure that corporations, federal regulatory agencies, and individuals are taking the right steps…

Female Creative Technologists of ITP 2017 — Hire these women!

ITP is an interdisciplinary Art, Tech, and HCI Master’s Program located in NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. ITP’s mission is to explore the imaginative use of ‘recently possible’ communication technologies — how they might augment, improve, bring art and connection into people’s lives, or how they raise new issues that disrupt society. We describe ourselves as a ‘Center for the Recently Possible’.

The ITP Thesis is a one-semester long project of the student’s choosing and is executed individually (not in teams). We are guided by faculty and experts to produce a piece that proves mastery in our topic, both…


And the ethical lines we should not cross

It created massive amounts of anxiety — primarily caused by the fluctuating needle which was constantly waving left and right.

This weekend I set out to make my first ever javascript plugin. I wanted to make a simple tool that I could actually share with people and they could use with ease. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be, so I wanted to share! Hopefully you’ll realize that you can do the same.
