My work was recently published in The Book of Love, a collection of work arranged by Facebook’s Analog Research group. It’s a great honor to have User Experience of a Heartbreak exist in printed form, and to’ve been included in the talented group of artists who provided work for the book. Special thanks to Jez Burrows who found my work and connected me to The Book of Love project.Read More
Very proud that my User Experience of a Heartbreak project is continuing to find its way to people! The past month has been a blast. My most recent interaction with an admirer of the project was so touching:
@microsarah I’m heartbroken atm. Your art and creations resonate. I don’t know what else to say except: don’t stop, you really get it.

And I was a little head-over-heels to see that Timothy Goodman liked the project. If you have seen his Forty Days of Dating project with collaborator & design giant Jessica Walsh, you’ll get absorbed in no time.
ux3.us was most recently featured in Beautiful Decay, Huffington Post, and The Metro (digital and print!). Thanks again to Katherine Brooks of HuffPo and Lakshmi Gandhi of The Metro for publishing the work.
I also did [what I consider] a pretty tell-all interview with Ellen Huerta for her site Let’s Mend. I was a little reluctant at first, but Ellen is a total pro and made it such a great experience. Special thanks to her as well for featuring the work and taking interest in the more human part of my story.
I’m excited to be working on a v2 of the site, which will include a lot more content, mobile support and additional menu features. More to come! Stay tuned.Read More
I’ve been completely floored by the overwhelmingly positive response User Experience of a Heartbreak has received. I had hoped it would resonate with people, and it seemed to do so when I showed friends and colleagues the early versions. But I didn’t expect to see so many people embrace the project after it was published. I did snoop twitter quite a bit (not incognito, either!) to see what people thought. Here are some of my favorite responses:

Al oír “Love Ridden” de Fiona Apple me pasa lo mismo que cuando vi el “User Experience of a Heartbreak” Casi que uno puede tocar el desamor.

The process of creating ux3.us has been difficult, but so incredibly rewarding. When I first began making it, I didn’t realize I would end up feeling so wonderful about something that initially made me feel awful. I’m really fortunate to have been able to share that with people. Also worth mentioning– the project is ongoing! I still have bunches of content to add, and will continue to update it as interfaces change. In addition to the emotional connection, I hope it’ll be an interesting look at how the design of these sites and interactions change over time.
Thank you again to Jessica Leber and FastCo.Exist for getting the site out there, and to Design Taxi for sharing it. Was also great to see it up in Brainstorm9 and Yorokobu, and to know that the experience seems to be universal.Read More
