About UX Mastery
UX Mastery is an online resource for aspiring user experience designers.
Started by Luke Chambers and Matthew Magain, we’re passionate about teaching others how to design websites, mobile apps and desktop apps that are both usable and delightful. While we occasionally offer in-person training, our goal is to share our experience online—through this blog, our email newsletter, and other digital channels (watch this space!)
With a background in visual theory and new-media culture, and over 12 years experience in screen-based interaction design, Luke has a strong set of skills that help identify key issues for web and mobile app projects and assist in recommending and designing robust web strategies.
Luke is currently working with the design and development teams at Penguin Books to introduce user-centred design processes and techniques into digital projects for ebooks, mobile apps and websites.
He oversees User Experience Design at Experia Digital and lives in a tumbledown farmhouse in the suburbs with his wife and two chooks.

After completing a Masters degree in Engineering, Matt began his web career in the corporate world, evangelising web standards and accessibility at companies like IBM and PricewaterhouseCoopers long before it was trendy to do so. He began embracing user-centred design techniques during his time at SitePoint after editing The Usability Kit, and went on to apply them to spin-off companies such as 99designs and Learnable.
In 2010, Matt founded Useractive, a boutique user experience design agency that helps create exceptional digital experiences for brands such as Australia Post, IMA Management & Technology, and MYOB. He has presented at a range of conferences including Microsoft REMIX, Tech•Ed, UX Australia, Webstock, Web Directions and Intranets2013.
Matt lives with his wife and two daughters, and spends his evenings pretending he’s a cartoonist. He recently wrote, illustrated and self-published a children’s book.
