On today's IGN The Fix: Games, With the team behind Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales taking up the Wolverine mantle, many fans were concerned about the length and scope of the game. Brian Horton, creative director at Insomniac Games, took to Twitter to clarify just what tone and scale we could expect when Marvel's Wolverine hits PlayStation 5. Volition has released further details about what fans can expect from the Saints Row reboot's characters and customization options - and why we've seen so little of the classic purple color scheme so far. In an update post published to the official Saints Row website, Volition addressed a number of questions raised by the community surrounding what new characters the reboot would bring with it, what details the developer could share on how customization in the game would work, and why the trailer showed a distinct lack of Saints Row purple. Carnage is joining Fortnite's Battle Pass as part of its brand new Chapter 2, Season 8, which launches today. The addition of the Marvel villain's character skin is just one of a number of changes making their way to the Battle Royale as players set out to face a brand new threat attempting to bring about the destruction of the island. Stella has all that in your Daily Fix!

On today's IGN The Fix: Games, Insomniac Games revealed that Marvel's Spider-Man 2 will be arriving on PS5 in 2023, and its first gameplay trailer revealed that both Peter Parker and Miles Morales will be facing off against Venom. Alongside returning voice actors Yuri Lowenthal (Peter Parker) and Nadji Jeter (Miles Morales, it was also confirmed that Candyman's Tony Todd will voice Venom. While it was just a brief glimpse, Insomniac Games also announced it is working on Marvel's Wolverine for PS5. This new game is being directed by Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales' Brian Horton and Cameron Christian, and Insomniac's goal is to "not only respect the DNA of what makes the character so popular but also look for opportunities to make it feel fresh and truly reflect the Insomniac spirit." We finally got our first look at the upcoming sequel to 2018's God of War, officially titled God of War: Ragnarok, during Sony's PlayStation Showcase. Those with a keen eye may have spotted a familiar character teased in the trailer wielding a mighty hammer. It was confirmed shortly after the showcase that it was, in fact, Thor who could be seen for a brief moment in the trailer. Now, we've gotten a full-body reveal of the Norse God himself and he looks very different than many of us are used to. We've finally got another look at Metroid Dread. This gameplay overview trailer shows us how Samus' abilities work, provides us with another look at the E.M.M.I robots, and gives us a peek at some exciting new Metroid Dread gameplay. Metroid Dread will be released on Nintendo Switch on October 8, 2021. Seth has all that in your Daily Fix!

¿Ha ganado PlayStation los eventos del verano? Tercer programa de la temporada donde vemos, por fin, cómo PS5 se une a la fiesta de anuncios para el año 2022 y sucesivos con un Showcase que nos deja sensaciones encontradas. Muchos anuncios importantes como Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 o Marvel’s Wolverine por parte de Insomniac Games, la sorprendente aparición del remake de Knights of the Old Republic, el nuevo tráiler de Forspoken o la fecha de lanzamiento de Gran Turismo 7… Pero también el gameplay algo descafeinado de God of War o la aparición de títulos ya conocidos que no encajaban del todo en la conferencia. Todo eso lo debatimos en un programa donde analizamos Life is Strange: True Colors prestando atención a su historia y a las contradicciones que genera ese poder de la hiperempatía.

Was haben uns die ganzen Trailer mit der schönen Grafik den Mund wässerig gemacht? Ach moment mal, das sieht ja wirklich so aus! Wir wissen nicht wie es Insomniac Games immer wieder schafft die Spielerherzen höher schlagen zu lassen. Ganz großes Kino erwartet uns in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Wer ein passendes NextGen Spiel sucht, wird es hier definitiv finden. Beeindruckende Grafik mit Raytracing vom Feinsten, actionreiches Kampfsystem mit lustiger Ratchet & Clank Story. Das Waffenarsenal ist sehr ausgefallen und gerade das ist das Besondere am Spiel. Denn beim neusten Teil unseres gewohnten Lombax Helden Ratchet passt einfach alles! Habt ihr etwa schon mal mit einem Verpixler, der die Gegner zu 8 Bit Figuren schrumpfen lässt, geschossen? Ein wahres vergnügen können wir euch sagen.

On today's IGN The Fix: Games, Guerilla Games devs have stated that cross-gen compatibility has not hampered the development of Horizon: Forbidden West. While many fans are quick to assume that support for last-gen hardware like the PS4 will ultimately hold back the PlayStation 5 version as well, that doesn't seem to be the case here according to the game's director. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart has already made a name for itself with stunning visuals and innovative design, but its crossovers with other beloved Sony franchises are making a splash as well. Insomniac Games tweeted footage of Sunset Overdrive characters warping into Rift Apart, with Horizon Zero Dawn and Uncharted characters joining in on the fun. And last but not least, we've got the ultimate schedule for E3 2021!

36. 3 Strategies to Implement Effective User Experience Design

Monetization Nation Podcast

Play Episode Listen Later Mar 12, 2021 16:37


Ward Andrews is the founder and CEO of “Drawbackwards,” which is one of the leading design firms in the Phoenix, Arizona area. He and his team work to dissolve complexity and create simplicity for customer experience and software product teams around the globe.  He is a member of the Honors Faculty at Arizona State University. There, he teaches Design Entrepreneurship and helps students form creative disciplines to develop real products and launch real companies.  Ward is my former business partner. He and I were Co-Founders of Families.com. Together, we helped grow site members to 300k in just 18 months. This family-centric social community was then sold in 2007, only two years after launching the company.  Ward has held many other roles such as a Design Director and Internet Strategist at Fisher, and a Creative Director for Rhino Internet. Some of the brands he's worked with to improve their design, UI (user interface), and UX (user experience) include American Express, Choice Hotels, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Sony, Intel, General Dynamics, Insomniac Games, and GoDaddy. Projects he's worked on have received Addy, Prisma, and Emmy awards. Through CX and software product work, he has created over $1 billion in value through cost savings and new revenue growth (Source: Drawbackwards). Here are three strategies Ward shared in our interview for implementing and improving effective user experience design:    1. Start with “Why”    I asked Ward if logos are important for small businesses, and if so, what are some dos and don'ts of creating a logo. Ward said many people get hung up over logos. “You don't even need a logo!” he said. “In a way, they do matter, but in another way, they don't.”  Ward shared the Simon Sinek teaching: “Start with the why.” “Sinek calls this powerful idea The Golden Circle, and it provides a framework upon which organizations can be built, movements can be led, and people can be inspired. And it all starts with WHY” (Source: Simon Sinek).  The “why” should be at the center of everything a business or individual does. Then, there are concentric circles around “why” for “how” and “what.” Ward explained that a logo design should come at the end when talking about the “what.” Not that the logo isn't important, but he said, “all I'm saying is not start with the logo. Start with the why. And the logo will be a result of the why, but it is a what.”  When individuals or businesses have a great why, people connect with it and give credibility or trust to the business or individual. Ward presented a great question, “If people don't know why a business exists, why buy from them?” If there's no why, then it can take away from the credibility, trust, or connection that individuals can build with a business.  Now, after the “why” and “how” have been figured out, then it's ok to start thinking about the “what” and logo, which are actually very important. Because the why has already been figured out, then the logo should tell the story of the why. “Do the why work first before doing the logo work,” Ward said. Once that's done, the color, fonts, etc. will then be able to carry weight and meaning to people.  This is how to create a powerful logo. Start with the why.    2. Improve User Experience & Interface   Design Mistakes in User Interface Ward's daughter was old enough to drive and had to go through the process of getting her learner's permit. In order to do so, she had to sign up on a particular web interface. She said to Ward, “Dad! You would think that something everyone in the public needs to use would be really well designed and simple.” Unfortunately, it was not, and this is how many interfaces are executed.  “The Experience Success Ladder” Ward created a framework called “The Experience Success Ladder” to improve experience and interfaces. This ladder includes 5 parts: Functional, Usable, Comfortable, Delightful, and Meaningful, which helps them to better measure a business's success and credibility. It also allows them to see where products, services, and experiences fall on the ladder一on the higher end or lower end. “We find that people who are loyal to products and brands gravitate to experiences that are on the higher end of the ladder and not the lower end,” Ward said.   Their team did a lot of work with Choice Hotels' brands such as Sleep Inn, Comfort Inn, Rodeway Inn, and others. They would go in and redesign the booking workflow which was used by each brand. They redesigned the booking so that there was less friction in the buying process.  One Objective Many companies create funnels that try to do too many things and are too distracting. Instead, Ward helps his clients create simplified sales funnels where the visitor does one thing at a time with a clear objective.   Apple has done so much work over the years to get to where they are today. They have built all the infrastructure to deliver what they have now. “They're dumping Intel and creating their own chips because they can't get the performance or the full hardware-software integration that they want with others. They've been doing this over many years and decades, but they've been taking out third-party stuff and building their own,” Ward said.  Disney has been doing the same thing. For those who haven't ridden Space Mountain, it's a custom-built roller coaster inside of a dark space mountain. “It's all custom tech! If you go to any ride at Disneyland, every console has a custom design with a simple interface that is designed only to do the things that that specific ride needs,” Ward said.  Customer and Employee Experience Ward likes to teach “Customer Experience” and “Employee Experience” with a 6-square layout. There are three categories relating to the customer's and employee's experience, and that is awareness, delivery, and loyalty. “If we can boil down customer [or employee] experience in these categories, we can see where we are credible and where we are not credible. Then, we can up-level each one of them.”    Awareness Delivery  Loyalty     Employee       Experience 8 7 2     Customer       Experience 1 10 5 (part of Ward's methods in the self-assessment process) Looking at the “Employee's Experience,” how can we acquire great employees? What is the culture like? Ward likes to take each category and scale it from 1 to 10, with 10 being high and 0 being low.  Let's say a business does a self-assessment for employee experience in each of these areas, giving themselves an “8” for awareness, a “7” for delivery, and a “2” for loyalty. Then Ward and his team ask a set of survey questions to the employees and customers to see where the gaps are at. Once that's finished, it's so much easier to know what to focus on when improving the employee or customer experience.  “You don't need to have a billion dollars to pinpoint this,” Ward said. “You just need to have the right framework and a good partner/consultant to work with you to get into it.” This way businesses can turn around, see the current result in each category, and then set a goal of where they'd like the “Customer Experience Loyalty” to be. This framework allows others to pin-point, focus, and prioritize the focus of improvement efforts.    3. Build Credibility    During the early days of Twitter, there was no need to have “verified” accounts. (You know the blue, little dot after someone's account name? That means it's verified to add credibility to the person). Well, those didn't use to be there, but Ward is one of the reasons those were deemed necessary. Shaquille O'Neal was playing for the Phoenix Suns but had no Twitter account at all. Ward and I are both big fans of the Suns. Ward thought it would be fun to go and create an account for Shaq. So, Ward made an account called @shaquilleoneal, and started tweeting as if he were Shaq! It was an amusing experience for Ward until people began asking Shaq, “Umm, why are you Tweeting from the bench?!” Of course, Shaq hadn't been tweeting from the bench. That was Ward doing the tweeting.  Sadly, Twitter ended up shutting down the account (you can still read the archive at @NotShaqONeal). Shaq got his own Twitter account, and now there is that blue dot next to specific individual's names to verify or add credibility that the account belongs to the right person. Don't worry, though. Ward got a great gift out of it. The Suns sent Ward a Shaquille O'Neal jersey signed by the man himself.  Having this credibility that Ward talks about is so fundamental to attracting and retaining clients. “When you establish credibility, your clients, customers, and peers respect you, vouch for you, and continue to use your business because they feel connected to what you say, do, and stand for.” (Source: Aguilar Public Relations) Connect with Ward If you enjoyed this interview and want to learn more about Ward or connect with him, you can email him at ward@drawbackwards.com or visit his consulting site at https://drawbackwards.com/. Key Takeaways Thank you so much Ward for sharing your stories and strategies with us today. Here are some of my key takeaways from today's episode: Begin with the “why.” What's your purpose? What's your story? Once you've decided this, everything else should link back to it. The “why” should be at the center of everything.  Not that the logo isn't important, but don't start with it. Start with the “why.” If people are going to be using it, make sure it's designed well and simple.  When designing, keep Ward's “Experience Success Ladder” in mind: Functional, Usable, Comfortable, Delightful, and Meaningful. We want as little friction as possible in the buying process. To achieve this, create one clear objective, not many objectives. This helps build credibility and user experience.  Assess your business's “Customer Experience” and “Employee Experience” for an inexpensive way to find the gaps for improvement.  Credibility is fundamental when bringing in and retaining clients. Effective design will add to the credibility and success of a business.  Want to be a Better Digital Monetizer? Did you like today's episode?
