Happy Anniversary UXRS
UX Research and Strategy celebrates 3 years on the scene
All As we jump into May 2022, the UX Research and Strategy group celebrates its 3-year Anniversary. Woot!
We’ve come a long way, baby! UXRS started as a small but mighty meeting in Dallas, Texas USA, with our first in-person meetup in May 2019. After a few months of successfully hosting in-person meetups, bringing in speakers from major companies, the pandemic hit the world in March 2020, and since that time, UXRS has expanded to a global phenomenon.
We continue to be true to our roots, by ensuring our meetup attendees come away with concrete examples of how to confidently implement user experience research and strategy methods in their day-to-day projects and work. But since our inception in 2019, we have expanded so much beyond meetups.
We provide educational resources in a number of formats, and have grown to be a trusted resource for learning and gaining new skills. We are a global community, providing opportunities to make connections with people all over the world.
Social Media Growth
We are so proud of how our presence has grown in just 3 years. Our social media channels have especially seen tremendous growth:
Not only have we grown in social media, but our board and volunteers have grown too. We started with the three founders, and now have 10 fantastic people to help deliver UXRS to the world. We are excited about how our content, events, community and learning opportunities have had such tremendous global reach. And we look forward to even more in year three.

Meet the New Look
UXRS social media designs get an upgrade from our new graphic designer
UX Research and Strategy (UXRS) is excited to announce our new social media look and feel.
As you may know, our social media committee has been growing, and one of our newest positions is our talented graphic designer Trista Lam.
We are so excited to bring you Trista’s new designs starting in May. Don’t worry, we are still going to be bringing you our fantastic content like Method Mondays, Term Tuesdays and Cognitive Biases so you can stay on top of terms and trends. And we will continue to share interesting UXRS feedback and famous UX quotes. But now, Trista is upgrading the design to a contemporary look and feel.
Stay tuned as we roll out our new designs and let us know what you think of the designs in the comments.
