This week: I love the new InVision blog, or ‘design publication’ as they like to call it, lots of UX stuff including what makes a UX Writer, how to get simple things like birthdate fields right, plus a brilliant podcast telling stories of tech entrepreneurs in developing countries.

Here are the things I found interesting on the web this week.

Happy reading!


“Over the last few years, the InVision Blog has grown to be so much more than a blog — it’s a design publication.” And they’re rolling it out incrementally so if you can’t see it yet check back later! It’s worth it :)


“The human-centered design process is made to help you handle ambiguity. If you follow an in-depth research process, you can uncover solutions for any problem.”


Sometimes you just have to go back and make sure you have the basics done right.

“Over the past few years, a fairly new term has started popping up on job advertisements and descriptions. For those in the UX community, it might be old news, but for others, it’s a completely new term: the UX writer.”

“Let’s examine a tool so simple yet so powerful that once you’ve learned about it, you will apply it in all your projects.” Bold words indeed!


“I recently found myself at a crucial point where I knew I had to scale my business but I wasn’t sure where to start…” But here’s how this founder did it.

“A podcast that shares the stories of tech entrepreneurs in developing countries.”

Compiled with ❤️ in Qatar

Every week I read stuff on the web that I think would help Qatar-based tech startups design and build brilliant products. I save up all the interesting things and publish them here, and send them out via
