After a round of user interviews, it is important to consider how the research findings are going to be consumed by other team members so your research effort is not wasted.

Here’s my process from a recent project. It shows how I turned user interview notes into design actions. I hope this can help you design better products based on the feedbacks you gathered!

The project


A friend of mine just got a job as a UX designer. She asked me for some advice on the first design meeting with her new team.

Here are 5 things that I have in my design meeting survival kit. On top of a well-prepared presentation, I use these tips to make sure that the design meeting is productive for everyone.

I hope they’ll help you rock that upcoming project kick-off or design review!

1. the action/decision you want from this meeting


A designer friend of mine was considering taking a UX portfolio course to make her portfolio more effective.

We did some research together and concluded that these 5 courses are legit and worth checking out.

I hope this list can help you choose a course to take and level up your UX portfolio!

Someone asked me the differences between all the UX design job titles.

There’s a great saying that the best way to learn something is to teach it. It was an incredible honor to give a talk today and share my experience as a UX designer working at various companies in the Bay Area for the past few years.

Great questions were thrown out after the talk. Some of which, honestly, I did not have a good answer for.

Job titles in UX design are confusing as hell
