In many products, search is critical, yet too often it’s forgotten or overlooked. Many users heavily rely on search, and investing time and effort into good search is usually a very good investment. So how do people search and what do they expect from a first-class search experience in 2024? And what can we, as designers, do to design better experiences for them?

In this free session, we’ll explore how to do just that — how to design better autocomplete, how to deal with complex filters and improve sorting, how to design better search results pages and improve the experience for power users.

Roll up your sleeves: expect plenty of real-life examples, do’s, don’ts and a healthy dose of “Aha!”-moments. Beware: you might never forget what you’ll learn in this session!

Here’s What You Should Be Expecting:

  • Interactive live session

    A free, 2h-long live session

  • Practical insights

    From psychology to design patterns

  • Do’s and Don’ts

    Good and not so good examples

  • Dedicated Q&A time

    To ask all your questions!

In this session, we’ll explore:

  • How people use search and what they expect from search,
  • Search design patterns with good and not-so-good examples,
  • Autocomplete UX and how to make it more relevant and actionable,
  • Filters UX, with interaction design and layout considerations,
  • Sorting UX, how to display it, and how to choose sorting types.
  • Search UX Checklist, with everything to keep in mind for better search UX.

Who is this session for?

This session is for product and interface designers, UX designers, front-end designers and developers who’d like to explore better ways of asking the right questions.
