In this installment of UX Design Techniques, Chris Nodder explores a variety of ideation techniques. Chris explains the benefits of brainstorming and how to get essential feedback from users, feedback that often flows more freely when the layouts are less polished than in later stages of design. He discusses how to use responses to ensure you are on the right track. He also explores other facets of usability testing, how to resolve pain points in the user experience, and more.
