Last month, I had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity — visiting Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, CA! I recorded some interviews while I was there that will air this month, and I spoke as part of Facebook’s Design Lecture Series. First up, I’m talking with UX research manager Reggie Murphy.
We started off by going into what UX research is and why it’s important for designers, and Reggie shared how studying radio websites in the mid-90s turned into the career he has today. Reggie also gave some great advice and resources for those of you interested in UX research and how it’s used to make design decisions at Facebook on a regular basis. Thanks to Facebook for helping make this month’s interviews happen!

It’s HBCU Month, and we’re kicking things off with a great interview with USA Today’s visual design manager Tory Hargro. Tory and I talked about user experience and the importance of design in modern news and storytelling.
According to Tory, “it’s easier for me to teach a coder how to be a journalist than teach a journalist how to be a coder.”
So if you have some design or coding knowledge, then you might look at working with the news in a different way!
Also, learn how the simple turn of a key convinced Tory to attend Alcorn State University. Overall, it was a great interview!
