Happy Friday!

If you’re curious how my running training is going, here’s a little update: I think I’m on track to still run the NYC Marathon on November 1. I’m really excited and a little nervous too. Stay tuned for more updates as the race gets closer!

Everyone uses the saying: it’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon for so many things in life. I’d say this is a great analogy for learning about user experience. Sure, you can take a 3-month course and learn the fundamentals. But, you need to put in the years of practice of just doing user experience and learning more through project after project that you do.

Happy Friday!

I was on the road a little bit last week, but that gave me time to catch up on some reading and listening to podcast episodes.

Everyone keeps asking me how you can get better at doing user experience. Honestly, my best advice is to just keep doing it. I learn new things every week. And, the more experience you gain, the more of an idea bank you create in your brain. Then slowly but surely, you’ll feel less intimated by a blank whiteboard because you’ll have more ideas to draw inspiration from. Keep Reading >

Happy Friday!

A lot caught my eye this week for some design and non design related articles, videos, and products.

The challenge with design is that the learning process is never over. If you want to learn user experience design, let me tell you – there’s no end point. Your education will never be over. You’ll always be learning new techniques, new technologies, new devices.

Happy Friday!

I love September. I think September is the new January. It’s a nice time to reset during the year. And I think September creates a lot of momentum because everyone’s trying to get a lot of things done before the inevitable halt that the holiday season brings.

Happy Friday!

In the past two weeks I was at an airport 15 times — crazy, right? But, I do love being on the road because it forces me to get out of my normal routine and do things that aren’t part of my daily NYC life – you know, like driving a car, navigating cities, and more.

Happy Friday!

This week I was in Los Angeles doing a research project for a financial client. Traveling is something I love because I end up having to change my habits and my day to day routine. I’m forced to do things I don’t normally do and figure out problems that don’t come my way in my every day back in New York City.

I have a cool app for you — while in Los Angeles this week, we were driving around doing interviews and we used Waze to help us get around, it’s awesome.

Happy Friday!

This week I was in Atlanta for a few days doing some usability research for a financial project. I learn so much when I get to watch people use a website.

It’s a good reminder that things we as designers think are obvious, are probably not obvious to the every day user. So, don’t skimp on research because it will make you a better designer.

The big take away with this move is that Serge and Larry have big big plans beyond Google as we know it.

Hope you’ve had a great week. I’m on the mend after having surgery a few weeks ago. So I’ve had a lot of time to do some catching up on reading, browsing, and learning.

I love sharing a lot of my inspirations and learnings in my weekly UX newsletter. But, there’s so much I don’t put in the newsletter because I don’t want to bombard you! Keep Reading >
