How I Taught Myself UX
A few recent grads and friends looking to break into UX design from graphic design asked for a list of resources. I’ve created a list and a loose guide on how to get started in UX design.
I graduated from college a little over two years ago with a Bachelors in Fine Arts and a concentration in Graphic Design. I learned all about kerning, Paul Rand, and how to make a poster for social change. When I graduated all the jobs were for entry-level user experience positions, and I felt under-qualified. So, I took the first job I could creating the designs for print pieces and got to work learning about UX. Below is a list of resources I collected over the last few years that have helped me become a freelance UX designer and researcher.
