Psychology Behind A Modern-Day UX Design Process
Posted by Nick Brown on 11 February 2019 11:00 AM

A good user experience design is there to attract more clients, and to keep the ones you have. Of course, this much easier said than done.

The problem is, you need to stand out. There are so many website designers, programmers, and web experts, that the work, creativity, and resources needed to stand out are significant to say the least. This means you need to implement every tool in your arsenal, as well as get some new ones. This is where understanding the psychology behind UX design comes in.

Now, many are not thrilled at this notion. After all, designing something is an art, while psychology is a science. Going from something quite artistic to a rather academic notion may not be attractive to a regular designer. Furthermore, some may see it as something clinical, almost dead and cold. The problem with this line of thought lies in the fact that literally any design choice, anything people enjoy, is based on psychology.

Best Sites for Free Stock Photos
Posted by Alejandro Vasquez on 07 February 2019 11:00 AM

Your website needs images because they provide a number of benefits. For one, they are an excellent way to break up text, creating a stronger flow in your copy and making it more digestible.

For another, combining textual communication with visual communication improves the ability of your content to convey an idea. Plus, many people like being able to see a product before making a purchasing decision.

While eCommerce websites require images for these and other reasons, they may experience difficulty in finding ones that are pertinent, high-quality, and inexpensive. Companies that recognized this need developed an entire industry around creating “stock photos” and allowing others to use them for a price.

Simply taking images from them, or from other websites, without paying for licensing fees puts people at risk of a lawsuit. However, budget-conscious online store owners can also find plenty of resources that can provide them with first-rate stock images at no cost.

Here are some of the best websites with free stock images.

If your business already has a website and you're ready to sell products online, you may worry about needing to start your website over from scratch.

Either way, your customers are already used to a certain look and feel for your website, and you may not want to unexpectedly change that!
