Why I Published This Pocket Guide
As a self-taught UXer, I know all too well how hard it is to learn the tools of the trade. In collaboration with the awesome folks at UXPin, I wanted to offer a book that will take you from UX zero to UX hero.
There are lots of great books out there on UX which have helped me along the way, but what I was missing those years ago when I first encountered the world of UX was a kind of introductory primer that would explain, in simple terms, what UX is and how to do it.
Like many of my students, I don’t have a background in the technology sector or a related industry, so many of the central concepts of UX were lost on me when I first encountered the term. I didn’t understand how drastically the contemporary process for designing digital products and services had changed. I didn’t understand the subtle differences between the web development process and the UX design process. I didn’t understand how all the related disciplines of UX, such as usability, information architecture, and visual design, could all fit together under one umbrella.
If you’re like I was, then consider taking a look at my pocket guide.
Why I Published With UXPin
The tagline of UXPin’s free design library is “knowledge wants to be free,” and as an educator and researcher I can’t agree more with this mission. As many companies choose to do, UXPin could easily lock away their high-quality design library behind a paywall, and could probably make a pretty penny doing so. But they’ve chosen to make them available to anyone with an email address.
I’m excited to be part of a growing resource that is fueling the UX design revolution. Be sure to check out my title and all the others in their library.
