Measuring user experience of web design with UX Points
We all like to critique design of websites. Yet we struggle to give many examples of what well-designed ones look like. Surely things aren’t all that bad, and Apple’s website isn’t the only one to look up to?
I’m really excited to launch my new project — UXmeter — it’s like Tinder, but for finding the hottest website design in town: uxmeter.com. It showcases top website designs from finance to sports ranked purely based on UX design using universal scoring system called UX Points.
Rating accessible to everyone
The designs are rated directly on our website by both industry professionals as well general public — everyone is welcome.
UX Points system to measure user experience
Your rating is turned into UX Points — a universal score generated based on the answers to 5 simple questions you agree or disagree with:
- Looks nice — it’s visually appealing to me
- Helps with my task — I’ve successfully completed what I wanted to do
- Easy to navigate — it takes just a few steps to complete my task
- Loads quick — I don’t have to wait long for it to open on my device
- Content is accessible — I could easily read text on small and large screens in my language, images and videos look sharp and have captions
Website designs for you to be inspired by
The highest-rated designs appear under Top Website Designs — plenty of good examples of real-world design for you to be inspired by and to learn from, compared to unrealistic “bells and whistles” mockups on Dribbble and Behance.
‘Design-off’ to compare web designs
You can find out which of the two website designs is rated better and why in what we call ‘Design-off’ — to see how a particular website design compares to another one.
