    Hey Paul, I usually don't read case studies, only if they contain some relevant info about some topic that I might be interested at that time.

    Btw, probably you'll find this website useful: https://www.casestudy.club/

      Thanks for the link!

      Well, the problem is that you need spending some time looking through it to define whether it contains some relevant info or not. From my experience, about 90% of reading case studies in blogs are reading advertising articles.

      Now I think that the best way to know something useful is to read personal UX/UI blogs at Medium. That is less corporate.

        Yes, and sometimes (if not most of the times) the case studies were written by content marketers that probably weren't directly involved in the project :/

      Thanks for sharing, Pedro! I'm Jan, the maker of Case Study Club.

      I completely agree... Case studies come in many different shapes and forms. Mostly based on intended use and audience.

      Since we’re discussing companies showcasing client work; I think it’s ok that their case studies are marketing material, angled towards prospective clients.

      On the other side, you can find long-format case studies posted on Medium and shorter-condensed versions found in portfolios.

      These are written by designers (like you and me). Their audiences are fellow designers eager to learn or design leaders looking to hire.

      In Case Study Club most of the featured case studies are the latter kind, sprinkled with occasional exceptional company features.

      Now... to answer your question; Yes, I do read case studies. To learn, grow and connect. Useful :)

        I think most of the interesting Case Studies I've found were on Case Study Club. :) It's one of the newsletters that I usually open every week

        Jan, thanks for the comment, I've never met Case Study Club before, but I will read it, hope it will help us to create our own format for Case Studies. Is there any pieces of advice you can give? Thanks
