Many of us are now well into the summer season, reading on the beach, visiting amusement parks, enjoying ice cream, and of course, TRAVELING.
I just got back from Singapore, doing a UX Writing Workshop for the largest insurance companies in the country and it was a wild experience.
So that’s why we’ve decided to dedicate this week’s UX Writing Weekly newsletter to the UX writing of summer.
In this week’s newsletter, you’ll hear from UX writers in the travel industry, get some tips on creating your own case study, and learn about what’s new in AI and Traveling.
