Yes, I’ve been lazy when it comes to updating this blog. I have been writing some short pieces at my company’s blog ux.no, though. The UX department that I work in write about all kinds of things regarding the user experience, and about our different projects. My contributions so far (in Norwegian):

I will try to do the Heimlich Maneuver on this blog this Easter. But in the meantime – enjoy ux.no!

Cause charts rule

torsdag, oktober 2nd, 2008

I found this cute song through Dan Roam’s blog about a little girl expressing her love for charts. The graphics are quite ugly after my opinion, but the song still might inspire some kids to become information designers one day… Because a chart is indeed a «handy dandy scientific tool» :) Here are the lyrics:

I like checking out charts, cause charts rule
A chart is a handy dandy scientific tool
It gives you information you can see with your eyes
A chart lets you visualize
You get the picture – So do I!

May I please draw your attention to this weather chart
I tell you this chart is a work of art
I see clouds on Friday and rain on Monday
And look there’s gonna be sun on Sunday!

I like checking out charts, cause charts rule
A chart is a handy dandy scientific tool
It gives you information you can see with your eyes
A chart lets you visualize
You get the picture – So do I!

How many kids like a dog or a cat?
Who wears a hoody and who wears a hat?
Making a chart of what people eat
Some charts look like a pie and you know that’s sweet!

I like checking out charts, cause charts rule
A chart is a handy dandy scientific tool
It gives you information you can see with your eyes
A chart lets you visualize
You get the picture – So do I!

UX Office

Tea time with my colleagues. The weather outside is awful, but inside the office walls we enjoy a nice, short break from our work. Got to get back to analysing the exciting world of pollution(!) any minute now, though.

Norsk Folkemuseum

Norskfolkemuseum.no

A new version of the website for Norsk Folkemuseum (The Norwegian Museum of Cultural History) was launched yesterday. My company, Logica, was hired to design and develop the site in co-operation with the museum. As a part of Logica’s design department, UX, I have been involved in developing the concept and the information architecture for the site.

I might deliver a «final» information architecture (IA) to the client at the end of my department’s process. Still the IA will often evolve after a site is launched to meet new needs. Even though we always try to continue the dialogue with the client after a project is over, it is important that the client understands the principles of the information architecture. They have to deal with suggestions and complaints on a regular basis from within the organization…

When some colleagues and I went to the launch party for norskfolkemuseum.no yesterday, I was intrigued to hear that the people from the project group of Norsk Folkemuseum still could list the principles for the IA – over 6 months after my department was involved in the project. Yay!

What do you think of the site? Check it out in Norwegian or in English.
