The UX design industry has a case study problem. Many designers “vomit” thousands of words all over their case study pages, detailing every single thing they did for the project.The result is the exact opposite of what they hoped for — no one wants to read them.
It seems counter intuitive for me to say this, given that I run a design school with many students focused in UX design, but I’m still going to say it because I believe in being honest — UX design isn’t for everyone.
Recently, as I study the design industry and do research for my design school, I found myself browsing through online design communities more often. But I found myself feeling uncomfortable more and more while reading through discussion threads.
