Ever a champion of inclusion and accessibility, we’re giving this week’s shout-out to Jon Yablonski (also the author of this week’s Lit Pick). Amazing to see that he’s working hard to bring these laws to UX writers around the world in their own languages 🥳.

This book by Jon Yablonski is an amazing go-to for UX Writers who are looking to grasp the key concepts of the most important laws for successful design. And for the record, if you’re a UX Writer and are not looking for a deeper understanding of these laws, it’s time to hang it up 😉.
