ux, ui, ia, usability by @theYouEyeGuy

On this Website …

Hi.  I’m John Vaughan.  I’ve worked in the UX / UI / Usability / Media arena for a bunch of years.

lean-in-3My resume (which is on another site) covers my professional experience and skills.

This site is more about Ideas.

I’ve collected a bunch of my bloggy thoughts, opinions, and articles on a variety of UX (and non-UX) topics here:



EveryDay UX

for Example



Understanding UX









Some of these articles here have migrated from my “professional website” (it was getting too crowded).  Many have also been posted on LinkedIn, Quora, beBee, or other socialNets.

This site is very much a work-in-progress, both in terms of the content that’s posted here and in terms of the structure and interrelationship of the materials and their sites. Bear with me.
