(This is a sponsored article.) Our friends at Adobe unveiled a very special goodie at the Awwwards Conference in Berlin today. A goodie which is too good to miss: They asked three renowned designers to create exclusive free icon sets to use in Adobe XD. And, well, we are very happy to feature them here on Smashing Magazine, too. The icon kits were created by design legend Lance Wyman, award-winning design studio Anton & Irene, and the Swiss design group Büro Destruct.

Having undertaken initial user research and analyzed your research findings, the next phase of the design process is to apply what you’ve learned by developing a series of designs to test your assumptions. In the fourth article in my series for Adobe XD, I’ll be focusing on the initial phase of the design process. Within this overall series of ten articles, this is the first of three that tie together the design process.
Designing the best experience is a challenge, and every designer and developer has their own way of tackling it. But, well, no matter how different our approaches are, one thing is for sure: We can learn a lot from each other. To give you your dose of UX inspiration, we are happy to announce that our dear friends at Adobe, are streaming live from the Awwwards Conference which will take place in Berlin on February 8th and 9th.

In the last Adobe XD release, radial gradients were added so that designers can easily create unique color effects by simulating a light source or applying a circular pattern. Designers can add, remove and manipulate color stops with the same intuitive interface as linear gradients.

In this third article of my series for Adobe XD, I’ll be focusing on the importance of undertaking user research. Your job title might not be “design researcher”, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t at the very least inform yourself of your users and their needs by undertaking at least some initial scoping research before you embark upon a project.
(This is a sponsored article.) As designers working in an ever-changing field, it’s important that we develop an understanding of the timeless design principles that underpin everything we do. In the second article in my series for Adobe XD, I’ll explore the foundations that enable us to establish some universal principles of UX. These principles, which should sit at the heart of everything we design and build, are critical and will stand the test of time:
Nous avons publié le book by Viuz 2018 , comme l’année dernière. Les grands domaines du marketing digital sont passés au peigne fin : tendances, cas, chiffres, articles de fond, interviews. Nous vous proposons aujourd'hui les tendances du commerce connecté.
Plus de 90 % des achats s’effectuent encore en magasin.
Or, selon Google, entre 70 % et 80 % des achats offline sont
néanmoins influencés par les recherches online. C’est ce qu’on
appelle l’effet ROPO pour Research Online et Purchase Online.
Ces dernières années, la progression des technologies de
géolocalisation mobile, les premières expériences d’objets
connectés, la mise en place d’analytics in-store, la digitalisation
des points de vente et une meilleure compréhension des
parcours d’achats online et offline ont accéléré le développement
du commerce connecté et des techniques de drive to store.
De l’onboarding au geofencing en passant par le retargeting
en magasin, les retailers disposent désormais d’un arsenal

In our everyday experience, we underline to emphasize key sections of text, sometimes drawing an underline by hand below printed text. But underlines have their own place in the world of digital design. In fact, underlined text has become one of the most common, most recognizable features of our online experience. When we see an underlined word or sentence on a web page, we immediately assume it’s a link.
(This series of articles is kindly supported by Adobe.) We’re fortunate enough to be working at an incredibly exciting time in our industry. Yes, the challenges are considerable, but the opportunities are – equally – transformational. It’s never been a more exciting time to work as a User Experience (UX) designer. Great designers deliver wonderful, considered and memorable experiences. Doing that isn’t easy and – through this series of articles – I’ll provide a wealth of pointers to ensure you’re on the right track.
As web design focuses more and more on good user experience, designers need to create the most usable and attractive websites possible. Carefully applied minimalist principles can help designers make attractive and effective websites with fewer elements, simplifying and improving users’ interactions.
In this article, I will discuss some examples of minimalism in web design, things to consider when designing minimalist interfaces, and explain why sometimes "less is more". If you’d like to get more creative with your own designs, you can download and test Adobe XD, and get started right away.
