UX Weekly is a small newsletter crafted with a lot of love in beautiful Gent, Belgium.
You’ll get five links each week with the best quality UX writing from around the web. The writing won’t necessarily be new or recent - there is a lot of sleuthing involved. These links range from detailed how-tos, design strategy, community critique, and generally also opinions.
A grab bag of my favorite links? I’m glad you asked!
It’s fairly simple. You sign up, and each week I will send you an e-mail with the best content on the web. I spend quite a bit of time looking up content and digging into Internet Archives looking for golden UX articles not many people have uncovered or would take the time to read.
You’ll get about half an hour to forty-five minutes of solid reading material out of the newsletter each week and you’re guaranteed quality stuff. And as a result, you didn’t have to read all of the crap that gets put out there.

I’m Simon. I live and work in Gent, Belgium, build user experiences, and am a fan of rapid prototyping. Like a lot of the subscribers to the mailing list I started as a programmer and gradually migrated to user experience design because problems involving humans are infinitely more complex and important.
The content of the newsletter will be biased towards what I think is important in design and within our field. It will include critiques of current design mindsets and mentality. I actively encourage readers to not be just better designers, but also morally good designers.
You can read my blog for more opinions.
As far as credentials go: I have worked with clients like Adidas, +Citizen, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Intel performing case studies, user research, design strategy, and rapid prototyping models.
UX Weekly started out 2 years ago as a way of keeping user experience designers at a UX firm up to date on the most important articles each week. It has evolved to have a readership of over 1,700 readers, from fields as diverse as marketing, mathematics, library sciences, and web development.
I ran a short experiment on paying for UX Weekly. Read more about it here.
