heads up designers – I’m working on a comprehensive soup-to-nuts (& cilantro) UX master course set to release in a couple months. If you’d like to be the first to get sample lessons & freebies, join the waitlist here.
Here are this week’s 3 UX links worth reading:
// Link here: empathyprompts.net
2. A fascinating Vox conversation illustrating why empathy is not the silver bullet – there are many situations in which compassion is more useful, and times in which too empathy gets in our way of solving problems.
3. I used to show this video in my intro to UX class because it’s the best illustration of empathy I’ve ever seen. Brene Brown narrates over an engaging cartoon depiction of what it means to be empathetic vs sympathetic.
