Laura Eck over at Web Courses Bangkok interviewed me recently to talk about user experience design, user research, user testing and all that stuff I do during my day job. It was fun, and a fairly comprehensive discussion.
She asked some great questions; hopefully the answers I gave did them justice!
Which methods do you use to make UX design decisions?
There are lots of activities that influence and inform my design of a web site or application. They can generally be divided into two camps: quantitative methods, and qualitative methods.
Quantitative methods include things like anonymous web analytics or data from multiple-choice surveys.
Qualitative methods refer to feedback that has come through customer support, comments made by a subject during a user testing session, or notes from a contextual inquiry session.
