Macchiato No. 37 // A Shot of UX with a Dollop of Graphic Design

Here is a cup of the UX usual.


  • Tilt Brush, Google’s new virtual reality drawing program, turns the virtual world into your canvas by letting you paint 3D and life-sized artworks.
  • Facebook IQ channels Facebook insights and provides researchers with information to help them understand people across generations, geographies, devices, and time.
  • Design as Participation places emphasis on designing for systems that participate with us and with one another, as opposed to only designing for users and demanding interaction.


  • “We can only speak through our paintings.” Loving Vincent is about the life and death of Vincent Van Gogh, and composed entirely out of animated oil paintings created by over 100 artists.
  • Here’s an old find, but it’ll never lose its flavor: Dessert Flavor. French food designer, Emilie de Griottes, developed dessert tarts that recreate Pantone color swatches.

Extra shots from the WT UX Team:

  • Content-first design: It doesn’t matter if you have the coolest or flashiest design in the world if it’s distracting users from the content and devaluing core actions users need to take. @jordandunn.
  • Check out Jordan’s blog post,  How Language Can Improve Your Design Process, to learn more about the importance of putting content first in design.
