Keep in mind that these things are not *new* - they all have been around for years.
And, what's a trend now, may be an anti-trend by the end of the year. Here's what I've observed.
UX trend #1: Agile or Lean UX
UX teams aim to be 2 sprints ahead of development. But, the reality is, they are 1 week or less ahead of development. More to come on this in another post called "Top Agile UX trends in 2014".
UX trend #2: Empathy Maps
UX trend #3: Quantitative Research
Now, I'm noticing an influx in quantitative user research - ones where large numbers of user's behaviors are compared for accuracy, time on task and perceived ease of use. We want to be able to answer "this design was statistically better than this" when it comes to designing for sites that have a large user base (friends over at Fidelity shared this with me).
