So here are a few things that I’ve learned during my time starting out now in the User Experience industry that I think that many new junior designers should be aware of. It’s a struggle out there but maybe this article will help you get a firm grasp of what UX is.

Preface

So say you’re an introvert, or you suck at talking to people, making small talk or even you’re new to the industry(yup that’s me) & don’t know where to start when it comes to networking, or even why should you do it?

So I hope everyone has a mask on because that might encourage twitter to add on an edit button. That being said, here’s a case study(case essay? redesign?) that shows how I’d implement the infamous ‘edit’ button on twitter.

Well as you can tell, I’m referring to augmented reality/virtual reality. As I’ve previously mentioned, Google Glass was a big thing once upon a time but that’s the thing; time.
