Discover user experience design

If you listen to the current buzz around user experience (UX) design, you could be led to believe that it’s a relatively new and ill-defined field. This couldn’t be further from the truth: UX design is a mixture of several disciplines – usability, information architecture, interaction design and more – that have roots in a time before the existence of the internet.

There were plenty of companies following the same approach as us when Clearleft was set up as a UX consultancy in 2005, although almost all were based in the US. Conferences like the IA Summit have been around for over 15 years and Lou Rosenfeld’s Information Architecture for the World Wide Web (known as ‘The polar bear book’) is approaching its 15th birthday.
