Interesting Blog 4: Usability Blog

UsabilityBlog

Usability Blog is written by Paul Sherman, founder of a user experience consulting firm, ShermanUX. Sherman has been in the usability industry for the past 12 years and fills his blog with numerous posts of good and bad design examples. They include snapshots of various websites, objects, infographics, and more, along with a brief blurb on his opinion.

I suggest my classmates to take a look at this blog for not only design tips but to get some ideas for Good/Bad Design examples to post. He touches on a few things I never really thought about, like repetitive “My”s in a menu or physical obtrusion to an interface. Maybe something mentioned in Sherman’s blog will remind you of another site that fails or succeeds in the same thing.

On another note, be sue to look at Sherman’s explanation of severity ratings. I think this applies to us all very well, since we have a few more usability reports coming up.
