I'm a UX Designer, so these are my UX Designer tools.

(Also, there may be good things in Category: Behavior you want to read.)

User Experience Design

  • explains the definition and purpose of UX and the roles that fit into it
  • Category: Design Principles explains the basic heuristics that shape design from a cognitive and gestalt point of view
  • Category: Design Ethics explains how we can use the two above to not fuck up the world more than it already is and maybe even make it better
  • An Interview with Andy Budd at Intercom, also known as the first place I saw the Minimum Viable Pizza.




See Tools and Colorblindness for more information on color.

Perceiving Color

  • Does Your Language Shape How You Think? by Guy Deutscher in the New York Times magazine discusses, among other things, how languages that don't differentiate between green and blue result in people who have more trouble perceiving difference between them.
  • Colour Assignment - Associations by Joe Hallock outlines different ways that we associate color with emotions and ideas, primarily from the view of an American / Western audience.
  • The XKCD Color Survey Results is a sometimes-hilarious look at a survey on colors that the author of the XKCD comic did. It's very revealing about how we perceive color and how much (or how little) patience we have for thinking about it.
