Can you understand and assess the potentially far-reaching consequences of seemingly small design choices? As designers, every decision you make influences user actions. You are shaping behavior, whether intentionally or not. In this Master Class with Expert Behavioral Designer, Samuel Salzer, you’ll learn how you can use tools, insights, and principles from behavioral design to thoughtfully and systematically design for behavior change.

This session will demystify the concepts of behavioral design and product psychology, to show you what really matters when integrating behavioral science into your workflow. The aim is to enhance your ability to understand user needs and ensure your designs not only meet key product metrics such as engagement, retention, and low churn but also crucially influence the right behavior change.

You’ll learn:

  • The foundational principles of behavioral design, emphasizing systematic processes over quick fixes.
  • User research through a behavioral science lens, enabling you to navigate its complexities and leverage diverse viewpoints for richer outcomes.
  • Strategic uses of behavioral design tools like behavioral maps and behavioral personas, highlighting their unique advantages over traditional tools.
  • Practical, systematic approaches to apply behavioral design principles to boost user engagement and satisfaction.
  • The nuances of understanding user behaviors beyond what users can articulate—exploring the 'why' behind their actions, not just the 'what' they say or do.

This Master Class is crucial for anyone looking to significantly impact their design practice through the powerful lens of behavioral design. It's not just about adding new tools to your toolkit—it's about evolving your perspective to transform how you see and influence the world through your design choices.

Error messages are essential to create a successful user experience (UX). They guide users, offer instant feedback, and prevent mishaps. Friendly and informative, they build trust and empower users while ensuring inclusivity and satisfaction. However, many error messages fall short, being too generic or technical, and lead to frustration rather than assistance.

How can we design better error messages UX? How do we display errors in data tables? Where do we place them?

In this one-hour Master Class webinar with Vitaly Friedman, a UX Lead working with the European Parliament and the Founder of Smashing Magazine, you'll delve into error message UX details, covering form layout, live validation, disabled buttons, compatibility, and crafting effective error messages. You'll also learn techniques to improve error recovery rates and proactively minimize errors.

You’ll learn:

  • How to display error messages in complex apps and forms.
  • How to design better validation to reduce friction and frustration.
  • Where to place error messages in a layout for tables, filters and forms.
  • How to prevent mistakes and slips with better form design.

Join this Master Class webinar to learn techniques to design better error messages, improve validation, optimize error message placement and prevent mistakes.
