We’re excited to announce that our next UX Book Club is about designing a great forms user experience. We’ll be discussing Designing UX: Forms by Jessica Enders.
“This book will walk you through every part of designing a great forms user experience. From the words, to how the form looks, and on to interactivity, you’ll learn how to design a web form that works beautifully on mobiles, laptops and desktops. Filled with practical and engaging insights, and plenty of real-world examples, both good and bad.”
As well as discussing our thoughts and opinions on the book, it will also be a great starting point for group discussions on our experiences and questions about its methods and themes. Whether you’re experienced or new to UX design, you are very welcome to join us.
I’m in! How do I RSVP?
To join, simply RSVP here and come along on the night with your book (or eBook), questions, thoughts and opinions! If you can’t make it, please reverse your RSVP early so there is room for someone else.
