I’m Matt, the founder of Lucid, the tool that makes it super easy for you to manage and share design systems. As a UX designer I love digital products and have always wanted to create something of my own, but because I’m not a developer I’ve never had the skills to actually build software and make it happen. It’s been… Read More →

So much goes into building a website. There are several phases every designer should work through to achieve great results and minimise the risk of failure when starting a new project, including journey maps, site maps, user flows, personas, content, Lo-Fi and Hi-Fi Wireframes, UI audits.

Christmas 2017, I made a bold decision to part ways with my nonsense about not having enough time to pursue my interest in programming. I had previously dabbled in different development languages, without really committing to any kind of progression or journey.

Between 2012 and 2017, we’ve seen the biggest tech companies in the world hire thousands of designers to push the value of design through their organisations. For example, IBM has gone from just 1 designer to every 72 engineers, to a ratio of 1 in 8. Intercom lead the way in terms of numbers, with 1 designer to every 5… Read More →

As individuals, and as designers, we are all looking for those special qualities in our jobs. It can sometimes be overwhelming stepping into the job market. We question: Will the role be challenging enough? What can I expect to work on? How do my own values match to that of the business? After a while the answers just become guess… Read More →

Designing for social good through volunteering opportunities and pro-bono work can be really rewarding. However, it isn’t always straight forward – before jumping in, it’s a good idea to get an understanding of the challenges involved with doing design work to help charities and non-profits. To help out, we spoke to a few people who have first-hand experience in the… Read More →

Welcome to Dear Developer’s entry seven. It’s the dawn of summer in London, providing bundles of vitamin D and some once in a blue moon smiling faces. Including my own. And what better to whack a smile on your face on top of the sunny weather than a little HTML hack? That’s what I thought. If you’ve been following this… Read More →

Designing for a cause is celebrated at Marvel and recently we’ve been seeing inspiring stories emerge one after the other about sharing knowledge and empowering others.
