UX designers also have to deal with the topic of design research. UX Booth has compiled a comprehensive foundation in its "Complete Beginner's Guide". From design research, interviews and observations to usability and A/B testing, this detailed guide provides information on how to apply design techniques and improve the user experience for all users. If you want to read up on the topic of UX research in depth, this is the right place for you. What we particularly like: a list of research experts that we can follow on Twitter. In addition to research and testing, trying things out is also part of the UX craft. According to Cosima Mielke, CodePen is the ideal playground for UI designers who want to let their imagination run wild. The editor of Smashing Magazine looked around and discovered some interesting UI demos and concepts, for example this compact log-in box by Boris Borisov.

50% – Contact unwanted? According to the Web Usability Report 2015 by Huff Industrial Marketing, KoMarketing & BuyerZone, 51% of those surveyed often miss detailed contact information, which they describe as the most important element on corporate websites.
Those who constantly advise their UX customers to ask their users to survey their own users should in return also take a look at their own nose and interview their own customers regarding their satisfaction. We asked our existing customers and gained valuable input about their perception of our competencies. More information about the integration of the results of customer surveys can be found in the current blog post of our colleague Sandra Schmelich.
