Crux.ie is my attempt at building a library of bite-sized descriptions of psychological heuristics and principles, applied to UI and UX design – both on and off the Web.
It’s run by me, Cormac Maher. I’m a UX designer, based in Dublin, designing for the social services sector. I’ve worked in both UI and UX design for the last 9 years or so, and before that I spent a long time working as a web designer.
I studied Industrial Design in IT Carlow followed by a PgDip in UX design in IADT (Institute of Art Design and Technology) Dun Laoghaire and I’ll hopefully get around to finishing the MSc soon.
I’m especially interested in accessibility and design psychology. I’ve got two kids, an elderly cat, and I like to snowboard, yo.
