UX Writing is not just text.

As a UX Designer currently working in Nigeria, I am often responsible for the UX Writing and Content Strategy of the products I design. Also, with a background in Content and Marketing, UX Writing is one skill I adapted really quick on my transition to UX/Product Design.

Recently, I worked with a team building an intra-organizational complex system. Complex systems are systems that comprise many components that interact with each other and designed for extremely functional and professional needs. These systems are not linear and use many interdependent modules. …

Memories, even bittersweet ones, are better than nothing, I guess.

As 2019 came to an end, I asked God what my running word was for 2020 and he gave me a phrase.
