Personas’ Remote Research

To build a persona can be tricky; you can just look how actors need months to put in the shoes of a their new characters. In UI design, personas’ creation is part of the analysis stage: they will be used to define requirements, to prepare user tests, to support decisions and to establish a meeting points between designers, developers, and stakeholders. What is a persona? Personas are fictitious...

[istartup] links of interest

Collection of links that we assessed to help us in the new store: Ubercart Point of Sale It is made with Ubercart by Drupal, thinking about the possibility of an integrated solution? I rejected the idea because I rather having two separate accounts and an non-conected cash register in the physical store. Registered Cash: Olivetti It is the most followed option for small stores, but again, for us...

[istartup] the beginning

Months ago, my couple and me started up a new business in Málaga called Pompitas de Málaga Jabonería, since for us it was the best choice to run far far away from the unemployment evil. Nowadays, the natural soap store continues its activity online, while I’m still working in my current company.

[Book] Emotional Design: Why we love (or hate) everyday things

The Norman’s book Emotional Design: why we love (or hate) everyday things is certainly praised by designers and non-designers.

You will feel like an alive and creative animal which...

What do we mean when we talk about men and women?

What do we mean when we talk about men and women? Generalization is easy and risky, even though we are in the middle of a fast pace discussion about anything else and totally unrelated we should be careful for two main reasons: respect (it sounds me so Ali-G) and an effective communication.
So think twice at least once, to not to fall in a fuzzy speech.

Social Design

Has the design a social mission? Personally, I believe that art has nowadays a strong commitment with our society; more than ever an artist cannot afford be a purely contemplative being.
