Weekly curated resources for designers — thinkers and makers.

The characteristics of late-stage UX:

  1. Automation: AI automates an increasing part of our jobs and reduces demand for designers in certain markets.
  2. Saturation: Supply of designers outstrips demand. Market is still uncertain.
  3. Commoditization: Focus on scalability and standardization over differentiation and delight.
  4. Financialization: Greater influence of financial health, shareholders interests, and business metrics in design decisions.
  5. Disintegration: Lack of trust in digital products makes users either skeptical, complacent, or susceptible to exploitation.
