Hi 👋 Any good UX books for senior designer level that helps with strategy, and good frameworks, or anything that will help me with my thought process? I have the basic books like don’t make me think, and 100 things. I’ll be joining a startup soon as chief designer, and will be back to being a full stack designer — I’ve been an IC for the past few years, so I definitely need to improve on strategies and maybe frameworks when it comes to UX. Will appreciate any suggestions. Thanks! 🙏🏻

Might not be exactly what you’re looking for- but the book Making of a Manager by Julie Zhuo really gave me a higher level perspective on leading a design team, creating frameworks that keep business goals at heart, prioritization on a larger scale and stuff like that.

Hi Everyone! I’m an emerging UX Designer and would love some advise on how to pivot into this field. A little about me: I’ve always been creative and tech savvy - stemming from my beginnings as an IT major and ending with a BA & MA in Art History. I’ve had experience with usability studies and testing for the rollout of Salesforce in my company and have finished my Google UX certificate this past June. I would love to start working in a field that I’m passionate about. Any advise is appreciated!

Hello! I’m looking for a mid-sr. product designer role in tech and hoping to connect with any recruiters or other product designers with openings on their team. I have 6 years of experience in the B2B SaaS space and over 2 focused specifically in product design (previously marketing web design). Anything helps, thank you :)

Few tips to improve your visual design skills

- Learn Typography: Typography is essential because 60-70% of user interfaces are about written content displayed in a meaningful way.

- Learn Layout and Composition: You don’t need to be pixel perfect, but if you place labels 10px above inputs, you must do that consistently across your whole design.

- Learn Color: Color doesn't need to be complex. Understand how colors interact with each other and learn how color can set moods.
