UX Reading List: Core Skills

Core UX Skills Reading List — Cover Image

About the Core Skills

I want to be clear: This list is focused on growing in Core Skills. I don’t have books in this list related to Design Leadership, Strategy, Soft Skills, or specific methods of design work; though I may touch on those in later articles. This list is all about the Core Skills aka Disciplines of UX; Visual Design, User Interface Design, Information Design, Interaction Design, Information Architecture, Service Design, Writing for UX, and UX Research.
