UX Links

A lot of people ask about blogs, books and links that will help them to keep up to date with UX Design, interaction design, usability and whatnot. So we've decided to put this list together.

Pick some books, pick some blogs, pick some folks to follow and, from that point on, it's just a matter of incorporating that reading into your routine.

Pick some UX podcasts to listen to:

We've created a list with 100+ of books that are somehow related to User Experience and saved them on a virtual bookshelf on GoodReads.

If it feels too overwhelming, we strongly recommend that you start by one of these:


Don't Make Me Think,
by Steve Krug

"This text provides answers to questions about the right way to design web sites by focusing on usability issues. It presents principles that should be kept in mind when evaluating site usability and are based on user research."


Emotional Design,
by Donald Norman

"Did you ever wonder why cheap wine tastes better in fancy glasses? Why sales of Macintosh computers soared when Apple introduced the colorful iMac? New research on emotion and cognition has shown that attractive things really do work better. This book articulates the profound influence of the feelings that objects evoke in our minds."


Designing For The Digital Age,
by Kim Goodwin/Alan Cooper

"This book brings detailed how-to information, examples, and exercises. Topics include assembling a design team, planning and conducting user research, analyzing data, creating personas, using scenarios, iterating ideas, and documenting finished design in a way that works for engineers and stakeholders alike."

If you are not only into books, but also into meeting people who share that same passion, you should check this UX Book Clubs list (filtered by country and region).


The best UX links in your inbox

We love links. And we love to share them too. Sign up with your email address to receive 5 to 10 UX-related links every week. Yes, it's free.


This list was created by Fabricio Teixeira and Caio Braga, and illustrated
by Bruno Oyama. This is a personal list and has no intention to be exhaustive in any sense. The bear that appears on the drawings is a reference to the polar bear book - one of the most remarkable pieces in the recent Information Architecture literature.

We hope you find it helpful.
