Five UX Articles to Brighten Up Your Commute

Five UX Articles to Brighten Up Your Commute

The UX team in Arekibo is made up of a mix of UI and UX Designers and UI Developers. To collaborate closely it’s good for us all to keep up with trends in each other’s fields. One way we do this is by sharing articles we find useful or interesting across the team so that we can all keep up to date.  

Rather than just sharing these articles amongst ourselves we decided to start compiling the articles we found to be the most useful or the most interesting and share them with you. 

That being said, here are five UX articles to brighten your commute. 

1. How Paper Wireframing Will Make You a Better Designer

This is an article which has been referenced by the team a lot lately. When designing tables which deal with large amounts of data it can be tough to find comparable tables to cite, thankfully this article has plenty of excellent examples to use as inspiration.

Its widely known that the title of UX Designer is relatively new but what if we were to say UX Designers have been around since the 1400’s? That’s exactly that this article declares as it breaks down the personality traits that made Leonardo the best UX Designer in history.
