And the winners of the #uxtip contest are…

A few weeks ago we celebrated our first birthday by launching a contest. We challenged you to put your best UX tips on Twitter in exchange for beautiful prizes. Now it is time to announce the winners.

The contest we organized was very simple. All you had to do was put your UX tip on twitter and add the hashtags #uxtip and #johnnyholland. We are proud to say that it was a great success. In two weeks time we received well over 300 UX tips, not counting the retweets.

When the contest was drawing to an end we had a bit of a panick: we discovered you can only retrieve tweets from eight days old… Fortunately @yoni came to the rescue: he had made a backup (with Tweetbackup) with all the #uxtip tweets.

And the winners are…

There were funny, useless and even quite stupid tips… but the majority was great. So it took some time to decide what four quotes would be good enough to win a set of Rosenfeld Media books. Meet the winners:

Understanding your client is as important as understanding their audience.

Immerse yourself in creativity outside of your work. You will see differently, be a better problem solver.

Don’t try to generate every idea yourself. Listen to and refine ideas from wider team. Be a facilitator, not a diva.

Keep yourself from digital sketches as long as possible to keep yourself open to new directions

The quotes are simple, solid and practical. I would like to congratulate the winners. Start choosing what two books you’d like to receive. We will contact you via Twitter very soon.

We’ve collected all the UX tips and put them on a Johnny page: UX tips.
