As the world experiences an unprecedented prevalence of UX in the digital age, Africa is not left behind. The FinTech industry in Africa is an excellent example of how organisations employ dedicated UX teams and apply UX best practices to create outstanding user experiences.
While covering ADPList.org in our last issue, we met a number of remarkable African design personalities with whom we bonded and had a fantastic time debating the status of UX and what the global UX community might do to support UX growth in Africa. The cover story of this issue is based on these chats with as many as six such African individuals.
As you read this issue, you’d also notice a newer, enhanced version of DesignWhine’s website. We have revamped our website to include more features for our readers.
The new version has two formats – the web and the magazine – for every article (which we refer to as a ‘story’). Logged in users can also unlock all current and previous issues of the magazine and can bookmark their favorite stories. How awesome is that!
