Here’s a clue: you’re doing it right now. Reading blogs is a quick and easy way to remain current. Below you’ll find some of my all-time favourite user experience design blogs that are frequently visited by web design services Singapore companies. It includes established industry leaders as well as niche blogs discussing innovative topics. 

  1. UX Booth 

UX Booth is an extremely high-quality and thorough blog. They pride themselves on giving the highest quality of information. The authors of UX Booth bring in unique insights and perspectives to thought-provoking arguments. The articles are well-written and full of well-researched content, references and suggestions for further reading.

  1. UX Movement

UX Movement focuses on user interfaces in particular and how UI affects user behaviours. This is perfect for UI searchers because of its niche specificity. The emphasis around user interfaces compliments the theory and holistic topics typically presented on other sites. The concepts here are detailed and always presented with visual examples.

  1. Boxes & Arrows

Published every other week, this blog focuses on quality over quantity. Although they don’t post as often as other blogs, each article is an extremely thoughtful and well-researched discussion on topics ranging from interaction design, information architecture, and design of business. 

  1. UX Magazine 

A staple in any UX designer’s reading list. This consistent blog has a huge variety of content for designers at any level. Here you will find anything from “how to” posts to opinion pieces and no matter what, UX will always be front and centre.

  1. User Testing 

This is a product for, its pretty obvious, user testing but the blog within the site is a great resource worth checking out. The blog provides a wide range of topics from tech news to hot apps and products. Still, the best resources come from their research-based posts that are filled with proper example illustrating various research methods and techniques. 

  1. A-List Apart

Specifically for people who make websites with a  focus on web standards and best practices. This website contains both a blog and long format articles. The content in both sections are extremely well curated and of high-quality material. However, if you’re looking for UX design specific content you may have to look around for a bit. While search though, make sure to explore headlines outside the field for some added industry context.
