Design Patterns – When the overlay can boost the digital experience

Most of the time I notice a misuse of the overlay widgets. Very often, they disturb the overall digital experience and they provide inconsistent content based on the actual context the user is facing.

How can we design the overlay widgets in a human-centred way?

I was positively impressed by the new LinkedIn feature about the commute distance when you receive notifications about job profiles.

When designing, think about what the person is trying to accomplish. Don’t let the design get in the way.

  3. if the experience you’ve designed is not perfect, well, who cares! The result matters! The user that is able to accomplish the task matters!

The product design process has to figure out how people and technologies interact each other in a much bigger context. It is a matter of fact that the digital experience moves from one device to another, from user to user, from an app to a website and from a website to an off-line output.
