Et bedre personsøk

Jeg har laget mange internsøk de siste årene. Og i brukerintervjuene vi har gjennomført i forprosjektene, har vi funnet at de aller fleste leter etter mennesker: Enten etter et telefonnummer, eller etter eksperten på et fagområde.

Better people search

For the last year I have made a few internal searches. Almost every user interview I attend, we find that people are looking for people.

12 User Experience Classics

Working with search and user experience, I have found plenty of inspiration in many well-written books, articles and lectures. Most of these inspirational sources deal with specific and applicable things like faceted search, design documentation, personas and user testing – familiar topics for everybody who practice user experience design. Other reading experiences leave a deeper [...]

User-friendly design in my grocery store

How can you make your search solution easier to use for your users? By trying to understand how they think, and what their challenges are. Yesterday I went to the store to buy oregano and pizza seasoning mix, amongst other things. Usually I use two or three hours in front of the seasoning shelves to [...]
