“The better and longer way is to describe the experience I want the users to have. That means describing the users’ world and how my design fits in.”
Giles Colborne, Simple and Usable Web, Mobile, and Interaction Design

“Visiting users in their workplaces was vital—if we’d simply imagined the manager at his desk we would have missed the crucial aspects. Watching people in the real world is quick and you rarely need to pay anyone to do it. Even with minimal planning you can learn a lot. If you can’t get permission to do it, then talk to some users about where they are and what’s happening when they use your software.”
Giles Colborne, Simple and Usable Web, Mobile, and Interaction Design

“You can’t control the environments where people use your software. You have to design it to fit. The best place to watch users is in their natural environment.”
Giles Colborne, Simple and Usable Web, Mobile, and Interaction Design
