Meet UX Apprentice

Hello friends of Balsamiq, we have a very exciting new resource to announce today!

Balsamiq Mockups has helped democratize interface design in the communities who use it. A broad range of people coming from different roles and fields have adopted sketch-style wireframing. Making ideas come to life quickly with wireframes is a revelation. Your newfound power to create user interfaces is exhilarating!

Soon enough though, all beginning UX designers realize that creating products that are easy to use is actually quite hard! You have to know about information architecture, interaction design, copywriting, and lots more.

Meet UX Apprentice, a new site we created for people learning about User Experience Design.
UX Apprentice

We worked with Theresa Neil on developing a learning resource that covers some of the basics of the practice, and provides links for digging deeper and perfecting the craft.

We feel very lucky to have joined up with Theresa, who wrote the content and helped us design this site. She is a design consultant, and author of two O'Reilly books on interface design—Mobile Design Pattern Gallery: UI Patterns for Mobile Applications, and co-author of Designing Web Interfaces: Principles and Patterns for Rich Interaction. We called on her depth of teaching experience as an author and as a consultant who educates companies about UX Design to bring this knowledge to our awesome customers in the Balsamiq community.

We hope UX Apprentice helps many people who are getting started with interface design to both broaden and deepen their knowledge about UX Design.
