Issue 100 - December 2016

December 2016

Hi there once more,

and welcome to the 100th and therefore last issue of »UX und Tollerei«.

It's been almost two years now since I started this little side project of mine. Since then I shared over 900+ links and reads with over 3,000 subscribers (let alone everyone who's subscribed via RSS, etc.) every week. Preparing and curating all these inspirational and thoughtful articles helped myself to sort through all the clutter that filled my timelines and just consume what seemed important enough to me.

But I gradually realized, that it takes a lot of time of reading those articles, preparing them and putting them together in a comprehensive list. So in the last few weeks I reached a point where I decided (together with Fabian) to let »UX und Tollerei« go (at least for the time being) as I want to focus my time on new projects and pursue different ideas.

So, for one last time, here are this week's reads:

I would like to thank everyone who participated in making this scrappy reading list a success by supporting it, guest-illustrating and spreading the word. It really means the world to me and proves that this side project is actually meaningful! First and foremost of course Fabian for dedicating a good chunk of his spare time creating those beautiful illustrations which made every new issue something special. Also a big thank you to all of you, the people who read every issue, week by week and motivating me with your suggestions and feedback.

»UX und Tollerei« was never sponsored or paid for by anyone but me and I'm very proud of that. It started as a small intimate place for me to share the stories I come across as a professional designer and my thoughts on them in an unfiltered way and it has held up to this premise ever since. »UX und Tollerei« takes some well-deserved off time now and I don't know for how long but I'm positive that it'll return in the future. Until then,


P.S. If you want to stay updated on everything we are working on in the future, you should follow Fabian, me and our little joint venture on Twitter.
