Yes! Apart from blogs, video tutorials and Twitter accounts you can still learn lots of great stuff about UX design by reading a book printed on paper.
Here are my favorite books I think you should read!
The A Book Apart Series
A Book Apart (@abookapart) is not a single book. It’s a series about everything related to web, from HTML markup to content strategy. I’ve (almost) read all of them and they are by far the best books to read if you are working with websites in any way.
The series cover the following:
The new stuff in HTML5
The new stuff in CSS3
Advice for you content strategy and mobile content strategy
Advice for working as a designer and dealing with clients
It’s fall and time for An Event Apart yet again! This time in Austin, Texas on the 22nd until the 24th of September. As usual, I’ve gone through the #aeaaus hashtag and saved my favorite tweets from the event.
I’m very skeptical towards placing arrows before or after regular links. A blue underlined piece of text looks more like a link and an arrow next to the text might fool the user thinking a click will expand more content instead of navigating to a new page.
Check out breadcrumb trails on some sites and you’ll definitely see multiple arrows pointing to the current section.
Today An Event Apart wrapped up in San Francisco after presentations by industry greats such as Erika Hall (@mulegirl), Chris Coyier (@chriscoyier), Ethan Marcotte (@beep), Samantha Warren (@samanthatoy) among others.
As usual, I spent time following the #aeasf hashtag on Twitter in order to gain some knew insights and skills.
