About The UX Booth

The UX Booth is a publication by and for the user experience community. Our readership consists mostly of beginning-to-intermediate user experience and interaction designers, but anyone interested in making the web a better place to be is welcome. If you’re interested, join us and discuss best practices and trending topics, or share your experiences.
