In honor of World Usability Day, Brightfind teamed up with Discovery Education to hold the World Usability Summit. While my UX colleague Nina Amato and I were honored to present, I must admit, we were nervous to speak after Discovery Education and before Nielsen Norman. Being nestled in-between two huge names in the usability field is intimidating! Luckily, we were able to overcome our anxieties because we knew we were speaking about an important topic. A topic we are passionate about. A topic that, in our minds, can’t be discussed enough—accessibility.
Once upon a time, there was a kingdom called Risky, whose subjects were Risk Managers. And little did they know that a dark and evil force threatened the future happiness of their wonderful kingdom!
At Brightfind we take hiring seriously. Our employees must be smart, yet willing to learn more; confident, yet willing to venture outside of their comfort zones, and ambitious, yet willing to step in to help with minute tasks. They must embrace our collaborative culture while also being able to work independently. And when Brightfind meets such talent, we know we have to earn their employment.
We took a look at Brightfind’s highly viewed blogs, heavily attended events, and most downloaded resources, to compile a round-up of the topics that most interested you in 2016.
Last week professionals gathered for the inaugural Brightfind World Usability Day. This half-day summit gave attendees the opportunity to concentrate on providing their constituents with usable and accessible websites.
Video is just about the hottest thing in marketing, right now. It’s SEO friendly, it converts better than many other marketing channels, and its number of adherents continues to grow. The internet is full of DIY advice and there are a growing number of vendors competing for their own piece of the growing video market.
Here at Brightfind we're always trying to make our web design and development process faster and better, which is why we’ve begun sketching wireframes before putting pixel to prototype. Conceptualizing wireframes before they’re put into software has several benefits that make a lot of sense for our clients.
