The UI Audit: Your Hands-On Guide to Web Application Design

Want to design web apps that are actually useful to people? This concise, hands-on book will teach you how to adopt a simple, strategic approach to UI/UX design — from product strategy to each individual screen.

Have you ever faced any of these design challenges?

Design books are inspirational, but quite abstract. UX books teach you how to do research and map user stories. Visual design tutorials teach you how to create pretty layouts. But when it comes to building a real-life product, how do you combine all this information? How do you design a web application that’s actually useful to people?

This concise, hands-on book is here to help. The UI Audit is based on years of my consulting experience and real-life research. I explored dozens of web apps to find common patterns, flaws, and good ways to explain them.

Now you can tap into this knowledge and start applying it in your business. Everything boils down to a simple, strategic design mindset!

“Profoundly helped me to take a systematic approach”

“The UI Audit profoundly helped me to take a systematic approach to audit my web app. Before that, getting the right advice from UI designers was mostly limited to the aesthetics. The book helped me to take a top down approach starting from the vision and product strategy down to the style and fonts.”

— Saied ArBabian, founder of SkedPal

Written for founders, but helpful for anyone in the software industry

Founders are my favorite clients and I understand their troubles very well — that’s why I’m addressing the book to them. They have limited budgets but need mission-critical help. They’re alone making those bold, important decisions: designers and consultants usually just sing along the lines.

But these principles are highly applicable in everyday work of a UI/UX designer or a product manager. No more hand-holding — you can now make and justify bold design decisions.

“I know like a dozen founders that I’m going to recommend this to”

Zack Gilbert“Super excited! I know like a dozen founders that I’m going to recommend this to. Just reading through, I’m immediately thinking, “Do we do this?” I plan on using this book as a guide to walk through my own web app and make updates.”

“Want to go back and read it again!”

Charlie Irish“Massively impressed. This book is really, really good. It’s clear, concise and just what I need right now. It is so applicable to SaaS founders! I’ve learnt so much and actually want to go back and read it again!”

It’s not a pretty book, it’s a tool

Unlike other fancy design books, this book has no illustrations: it’s an opinionated decision that I made after getting beta-readers’ feedback. “Don’t worry about the illustrations, the content speaks for itself,” — one of my friends said.

The UI Audit is a set of exercises you can do with your own product. When you’re reading about a certain issue, bring up your own UI (on the screen or in your mind), and things will instantly fall in the right place. The meticulously designed worksheets should come in handy, too.
