We talk to Joe Leech about psychology for designers and bullshit science. We debunk some myths and “rules” that come across as truths.
How do you construct an argument with facts rather than fiction? How do we validate our data inputs and build confidence in our designs and decisions?
We get into the ethics of both research and design patterns as well as testing hypothesis and “the scientific method”. Are you going to freak your organisation out? We’re always looking for a quick fix, but it really isn’t that easy.

James and Per are joined in this episode by Jens Wedin to talk about design research. When should you do research? Why should you do it? How should you do it? How much is enough? Our discussion also goes into ways of working as a UX practitioner and we share a fair few tips. How do you move away from the wireframes business and become more of a UX-coach?
