Our UX community bands together like a ring. We love to share knowledge and include others in our work. No matter the disruption to our ring, we always bounce back and come together as one.

How we’re celebrating

World Usability Day is a chance for us to round up industry experts to share stories and experiences that help empower researchers and designers to make the world a better place.

This year, we’ve hand-picked a bunch of useful articles from our partners to help you discover our theme.

We’ve also put together a panel discussion with our Discovery Lead Kat Hardisty. She sat down with three UX experts: Anna Lee Anda, Greg Nudelman and Mark Wyner to discuss this year’s theme, with the help of a few questions submitted by our partners.
