Welcome to the UX team page! ٩(◕‿◕)۶


We want to make Tor applications usable and useful to people that need them.

We support Tor application teams on their projects with UI design, visual design, user testing, and user research.

We are a multidisciplinary team of designers, UI engineers, and user researchers, data analysts, and localization/internationalization specialists.

User research:

Industry benchmarking:

Design assets:


We're currently working on establishing a set process to evaluate, design, and push changes. We like this example.

There's a poorly maintained wekan board of todos and tickets floating around trac marked with #ux, #ux-mobile, #tbb-usability.



These are some of the basics. They are all a quick (<7 min) read!
