Matt makes us all jealous, not only with tales of adventure in Turkey, but also with his upcoming return to Istanbul to speak at the UX Alive! conference on 11-13 May. Feel free to slap him for me next time you see him, wont you?
Luke and Matt made their annual pilgrimage to the UX Australia conference, to teach, learn, and hang out with Australia’s UX community. Matt shares some of his sketchnotes and thoughts on the conference.
It’s been a long time since the last UX Mastery podcast episode!

On Monday July 20, we’re running another of our popular Introduction to UX Design workshops at Nest Coworking in Melbourne.
Whether you’re directly responsible for designing digital products, or only peripherally involved, this workshop will give you enough experience to feel confident working with a user-centred design process.
We’re delighted to announce a partnership with SitePoint, an organisation that has been producing high quality web design and development content for years.
All UX Mastery ebooks are now available to download or read online as part of a Learnable membership.
Last month, Matt travelled to the Philippines to teach a workshop about how to inspire innovation in your workplace. Fair warning: his write-up of the trip includes photos of hammocks, beaches, and enviable countryside. Read on to live vicariously!

To coincide with this event, we teamed up with the lovely folks from A11y Bytes to create a whiteboard animation about accessibility—a fun, informative piece targeted at the creators of digital experiences.
UX Mastery is heading offline—in a good way!
We have a ton of in-person UX workshops and social gatherings coming up. Now’s the time to take advantage of early bird pricing on our popular UX training.
Today we completed the first stage of the new UX Mastery—rolling out the logo across the main site, various sub-sites, and social media channels.
Matt explains the story behind the evolution of the new logo—the process followed, the original concepts, and some of the rationale behind the decisions made.
