Each week (or thereabouts), I will feature a new UX resource that is free…until I run out of free resources, that is. I will tag these articles as UX Freebie so they are easier to locate. In addition, I will tweet the articles and tag them #uxfreebie in the event you would rather search through them there. The criteria for a resource to be a freebie is simple – it must be free, reviewed by me and UX related. This part of the site is about guiding you to a free UX resource so good you would have paid for it.
I had to take a few weeks off from the Freebie of the Week due to travel and conferences. But, I am back with a very nice set of goodies to make up for my absence. This week I came across a great set of resources – 10 Free eBooks for Designers. The 10 books cover a plethora of topics – everything from UX to app marketing strategies to typography. There is something in here of interest to everyone. And the best part of it all is they are free!
