Design Observr is an intersection of three of my interests:
- Observing – observation, details, visuals, detectives, sherlock holmes
- Design – experiences & ux, usability, accessibility, visual design, interaction design
- Writing – stories, creative writing, descriptions
I’ve had an interest in design and user experience for a number of years which has manifested mostly into my projects at work. I’ve done a lot of reading about web design and UX on sites like smashingmagazine, a list apart, lifehacker and following design blogs on twitter.
Learning design through reading is a good introduction as there are a ton of resources, too many in fact, to stay up with as I found out. The next step for me is getting my hands dirty.
This is blog is about learning design through capturing my observations and deconstructing designs into their elements.
