What we offer you
Grow as a design writer
You can use this as a way to grow as a writer and to improve your written communication skills. Writing for the UX Daily involves entering into an editorial process that will help you develop your skills as a (design) writer and communicator.
What to write about
Anything that you would like to find in a “Design Body of Knowledge”
- We understand design in the large sense of the term. Including user experience, usability, interaction design, information design and visual design but also service design, industrial design, product design, content creation, among others. We also want this body of knowledge to cover other aspects such as how to become and grow as a design professional, how to communicate and advocate design, how to teach and learn design, etc.
- Within this large field of design, choose your topic. Each article should focus on a concept, term, method, principle, case study, framework, or any other element that can be a building brick of the go-to place for design practitioners and students when they want to learn about both foundational and advanced design concepts.
- Write to teach (while you learn!). Using a conversational style, find the right balance between evidence-based argumentation and opinion. Use hard facts and research to teach our members, add concrete examples, pictures and practicalities to make your point. Each article should be a coherent and outstanding piece of educational material.

Maybe these guidelines might feel overwhelming right now, but do not worry, they are there to help you. Just give it a try! And iterate.
