SUX like »It SUCKS what happens right now.«? Yes!

What is SUX?

SUX was founded 2021 by a group of designers led by Thorsten Jonas with the idea to develop a playbook,

to drive sustainability in UX and through UX, based on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN and non-profit - for the community and with the community. Meanwhile SUX grew from a project to an ongoing initiative and global community of (UX-)designers from all over the world. 

We realized, that working on Sustainability and Sustainable UX cannot be just one project. Instead it is an ongoing way that maybe never ends. But we also see, that it is worth going it. Because we have the power and can be an impact- in our daily work and through it.

"Making Sustainability Default in all Design Processes" is our mission.

SUX Playbook

Let's get active!

01/11/2022

When we started SUX, the idea was to build a Sustainable UX Playbook with tools and methods we develop all together with the design community. A first set of SUX Playbook tools is to be provided soon. Part of our work is also a resource database, where we collect all kinds of resources, tools, methods - sorted by design phases. This is available on our notion space.

SUX Podcast

EP 10 & 11: "Purpose driven design" with Xhensila Reci

29/12/2023        Moderator: Thorsten Jonas

Today we have something very special for you. Finally here it is: the lost episode. Last year we recorded this wonderful and extra long episode with Xhensila Reci from LEGO to speak about Purpose Driven Design. For several reasons, we did not manage to cut it and to decide if we should keep it this long, re-cut it, or make two episodes of it. Since the whole conversation with Xhensila was just wonderful and super insightful, we decided that we did not want to cut anything out. The SUX friendship book was super insightful and we also played Xhensilas wonderful game “Someone You”.
