The creative future report

"We asked more than 3,600 creatives what excites them, what scares them, and what they need in order to do their best work. Here's what we found."

5 emerging UX Trends in 2019

"The user experience is more important than ever. If a user doesn't get the right experience when visiting a site or device then they will simply go elsewhere to get the experience they want."

Why are designers so obsessed with their titles?

"I’ve been a designer for almost 8 years now and I think it’s my time to give something back to the community to make the world a better place and meanwhile challenge myself to learn how to create content in a more structured way." 

I wrote the book on user-friendly design. What I see today horrifies me

"The world is designed against the elderly, writes Don Norman, 83-year-old author of the industry bible Design of Everyday Things and a former Apple VP."

Typeface of the week

The latest release of Prague-based Displaay is the retail version of a typeface that was initially designed for a magazine about indie culture. Named after the magazine, Wallop consists of a sharp sans serif with vertical terminals, although it comes with several rounded alternate characters (for P, R, w, W, m and n) in case you’d like to add a bit of smoothness to your designs.
