I love shortcuts, Sketch plugins, browser extensions and generally anything that’ll help me be more efficient with work. But it takes time to try out new stuff and really get it integrated with your workflow. You have to install it, set it up (if needed) and figure out how to use it. Then there’s actually getting yourself […]
Soooo, I have a confession to make. I have never finished reading a single UX book 😱. I know, I know, I’m going to get excommunicated for UX heresy, but I mean honestly, who has the time?! The word “finished” is actually a little too generous. I’ve probably never made it past the first 15 […]
Meetings are something I’ve been thinking about a TON lately. At work we’re always striving to improve our processes and meetings are part of that improvement. How can we make them more useful? More efficient? Do we even need so many meetings?
All day, I think about user experience. I create wireframes and worry over making every interaction on the site I’m designing intuitive. I often scoff at disorganized interfaces that don’t put information or controls where the user needs them. In my personal life, however, I seem to do things in the most unintuitive way possible.

Sometimes you are surfing the net looking for some good ol’ inspiration and you come across sites that blow your pants off. Well here are some I’ve seen recently that you guys might enjoy and wonder (along with with me) – will I ever be able to make something like that?? Have you guys seen […]
Ever get to the office and you just aren’t feeling it? Whether this UX problem just isn’t as interesting as it was yesterday, you’re trudging through a thick meeting schedule or you can’t get motivated to start the UI for this new feature, we’ve all been there. Finding a way to kick your butt into gear can […]
I’m not what you’d call a “board game geek”. I don’t spend my Friday nights sitting around a table with other like-minded people campaigning to eradicate diseases or collect resources. But I do enjoy quick little games here and there while enjoying a pint with a friend. Here are three games that can help keep […]
I can’t believe how quickly December is flying by! Time to slow down, drink some cold brew and browse this week’s link round-up…
