Here are the most common UX mistakes you should avoid from our point of view 👇

🔴 Not Talking to Real Users

🔴 Skipping Analysis

🔴 Rushing with Interface Design

🔴 Hooking on Buzzwords

🔴 Letting Peers Guide Designs

1 Not talking to real users  Its called User Experience for a reason guys. Designing anything without talking to those who are going to use it is lust guessing.

2 Skipping analysis  It's simple. You can't solve the problem until you know what the problem is. Analyze the problem, support it with research and then try to solve it.

3 Rushing with interface design  Rushing with interface design stands a good chance of having a nice Dribbble post but with a terrible experience. Figma or Sketch are problem-solving tools. Please do not start with them.

4 Hooking on buzzwords  You can play buzzword bingo all the time. MVPs, Hypothesis, Lean process, Double diamond, pivots, focus groups, A/B tests etc. Unless you can explain terms you use, avoid them.

5 Letting peers guide designs  The design should be about the most appropriate solution for a problem. And not about the opinion of your girlfriend, boss or current Dribbble trend. Make data-informed decisions, not opinion-based decisions.
