Since August 2017, I've been writing UX articles for the WhatUsersDo blog. I'd been looking for a freelance writing outlet for a little while, so I was glad for the opportunity.
WhatUsersDo is primarily a remote user research platform. They've also created a strong UX community with a Slack group and a weekly Twitter #UXchat on Thursdays. WhatUsersDo is based in the UK, so it's been nice to reach a bit of a different audience.
I write topics that are often on the introductory side to help new UXers find their way. I will list them below as they pop up!
- Four psychology principles every UX designer should know
- What are 'leading questions' in UX tests and how can you avoid them?
- How good UX can save lives
- What is UX prototyping and why should you start testing at this stage?
- A user experience guide to typography
- UX and the psychology of storytelling
- In defence of the term 'users'
