Learn Design Hacking with Everett McKay
Design a great UX without time, money or design skills
Everett McKay is Principal of UX Design Edge

UX Design Edge helps software professionals create better user experiences through design training and consulting.

Everett is the author of UI Is Communication: How to design intuitive, user-centered interfaces by focusing on effective communication, published by Morgan Kaufmann in June 2013. This book explains user interface interaction and visual design using human communication-based principles and techniques, and is targeted at non-designers.

Everett also runs Ask a UX Expert, a fast, simple, cost-effective user experience design consulting service that answers your UX design questions for a low fixed cost.

Previously Everett was a program manager at Microsoft for nearly 10 years. He was on the Windows 7 and Windows Vista teams, and was responsible for managing, writing, and driving the Windows User Experience Interaction Guidelines. This role enabled Everett to develop expertise across a wide range of user experience specialties and act as an in-house consultant to help teams across the company do their best work. Before joining Microsoft, Everett was a software developer who specialized in GUI design and programming for Windows and Macintosh.

Everett holds a Masters Degree in Computer Science from MIT.
