“Please Make Me Think!” — Explainable AI & User Experience

Experience Design

Happy 2022! Before this year gets as busy as the last one, I’d like to take the time to share my insights on a topic I worked on last year: Explainable AI and its connection to UX.

Information Architecture and Visual Design Essentials in Two Short Books


Between Christmas and New Year I found the time to read through two great books. Both are short, entertaining and insightful.

User Experience Design With Distributed Teams – Part 1: Ideation & Sketching

UX Remotely

UPDATE: Instead of continuing with part 2, I decided to not label articles “part 1”  again and instead talk about the topic, collect more ways to do ux work remotely on Twitter and write more specific articles on the subject.

Lately, I’ve been working more and more with teams spread across different cities, countries and timezones. Though there are times when it’s difficult not having everyone in the same room (you know the drill), user experience design can work quite well remotely when you give thought to the tools and methods you are using. Starting with ideation and sketching, I will have a closer look at how the different steps of the ux design process are affected by remote work.
