I am Zosh, a recent graduate of the UW Informatics program.
4 years ago, when I started to learn UX design I would always discover and use websites such as ResourceCards for my project. They had fantastic UI design resources which made my designs look much better than they would have otherwise.
As we all know though, UI Design is not UX design.
It is just a small segment of it. I would always struggle to find something similar for the rest of UX especially learning resources.
I managed through but I noticed that my peers had the same desire.
I would have friends and students come up and ask me "hey, where can I learn more about UX design? " and I would send them a list of links. Soon this transformed into a Google Doc which would then become too long and difficult to navigate.
And that is how UX Library was born. In our first year we had over 5000 visitors from 28 countries and had a happiness rating of 92.8%!
We also learned what you liked and didn't like. Yes, we agree the long unorganized navigation had to go and we needed to provide better guidance about how to use the stuff we list.
So we fixed that(tried to), added new content, and ensured there was something here for everyone and not just UI designers. And today I am happy to announce that we have launched v2 of UX Library.
We hope you like/love it.
I would also like to thank each person who supported us in this effort:
Scott Barker, our mentor, who was also the first person to support our idea and encourage us to make it.
Misty Weaver, the iSchool content strategy professor for providing with us support in restructuring the website.
Michael Robbins, a design director at Lumedic who provided us with insights on how to structure our content.
Shwetha Sanapoori and Utsav Pinto, for helping with content edits and re-writes.
Vrishti Bhowmik, for being the first person to extend support and help when we first launched.
Michelle Wong, who gave us the idea of adding icons to the navigation (turns out we can only add emojis).
Ashmann Syngle, who envisioned and tested the different ways this website could be used.
Kassandra Franco and Vanessa Lin, for providing us with detailed feedback about their experiences.
Shane Martin, for writing, editing, designing, and building our newsletter.
Best, Zoshua Colah ([email protected]) Founder of UX Design Library
