About UX Mastery

At UX Mastery, we believe that technology needs to work for humans, not the other way around.

People > Technology

That’s why we started this business in the first place—to rid the world of confusing, hard-to-use interactions and interfaces through quality design education. We write articles, ebooks, newsletters, host podcasts, and teach in-person workshops that are fun, practical, and highly regarded by industry.

Stay up to date by following us on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, or by subscribing to our regular email newsletter.

We’ve spent the years since founding in 2012 learning how best to craft and shape content for UX Mastery readers—plus, our co-founders previously worked for the likes of SitePoint and Penguin Books—so your words are in good hands! We have a reliable editorial process that can help your article reach its potential.

What we do

Our mission is to help people design with soul. We use this website and community as a platform to:

  • encourage empathy for users
  • teach how to create interfaces with personality
  • champion projects with purpose

That means we cover pretty much everything under the UX umbrella—usability, user interface design, interaction design, design thinking, and more. Oh, and we love sketchnoting and visual thinking (and so do our readers).

UX Mastery has been live since August 2012, and currently gets around 150k pageviews per month. We’re excited about where we’re headed.

Meet the Team

Amber, our Communications Manager

Amber is UX Mastery’s powerhouse Communications Manager. She moved to Melbourne in 2018 to start university — studying Media and Communications at RMIT, with a particular interest in editing, writing, and content creation. She grew up surrounded by UX, and is loving learning more about it through this role.

When not studying, looking after our article authors, managing social channels or writing email newsletters, she loves getting her zen on with yoga, or firing up her creative side with anything crafty.

The UX Mastery team alumni

Our esteemed former colleagues: Sarah Hawk (Community Manager), Robin Cave (Illustrator and Video sketcher), Natassja Hoogstad-Hay (Commissioning Editor), our skilled freelance helpers James Prickett, Jessica Strazds, Richard Buck, Kimberley Magain, and our volunteer Community Assistant Piper Wilson.

Luke Chambers and Matt Magain, our co-founders from way back, who co-championed the content and community of UX Mastery as a dependable & authentic learning place for UX. They still pop their heads into the virtual office (wherever that is!) for Friday afternoon drinks every now and then.
