Today I’m celebrating because this day marks the one year anniversary of I Am Not My Pixels!
Have you made something amazing and you’d like to be recognised by your peers?
The UX UK Awards recognise excellence in user-focused digital or service design and entries are now open for 2017!
[UPDATE: Applications for 2017 are now closed. Thank you for your interest!]
I’m often asked why I set up this blog. The main reason, aside from “because its fun!”, is that I want to help people everywhere interested in UX and design by sharing my experiences along the way.
More recently, I’ve been mulling over how I can help people in a more direct way. I see people all the time looking for UX mentorship and I’d like to be able to offer my services in a way that is achievable for me. I also know that people new to UX often struggle filling up their portfolio with projects before bagging their first role.
So, that’s why I’ve decided to set up the I Am Not My Pixels UX internship programme.
One of the perks of birthdays, aside from people giving you things and plying you with cake, is that you can do whatever you damn want!
In honour of my favourite month (but mostly just because!), I’m gifting three of my UX design books, perfect for newbie UXers or those who’d like a refresher on the basics.
