The UX resources you should be using

UX resources have improved massively over the years, and now there's no shortage of excellent sources of learning for new UX designers. In the old days, UX designers had perhaps a few core books to turn to and not much else other than pen, paper and their own ideas. Today it's a very different story. There's not only a wealth of literature on UX, but also a host of courses and tons of specialist tools.

Some of the first UX resources to enter designers' toolkits were Axure and Balsamiq, for designing user flows. These are still around, but they've been joined by the likes of Adobe XD and Figma. New digital UX resources save designers time, but it's also good to remember the old way of doing things.
