Button Design – an interesting wrap up of everything you need to think about when designing buttons (I don’t totally agree with the “avoid disable buttons” I really think it depends on the form and audience)
“Why Design-isms are a problem: We’ve become so comfortable using this type of language, we forget that most people don’t have a clue what we’re talking about.” interesting read on how we have a problem with jargon and what to do about it
“LCH colors in CSS: what, why, and how?” Lea Verou explains the sRGB color space, what LCH is and why this is going to be a game changer for the web. Looking forward to this being more implemented
How to get help from an expert, a short thread by Erika Hall about seeking our expertise help on the web. TLDNR: if it’s help for your business or a significant project success, Determine your budget and PAY THEM.
The Coronavirus Is a Disaster for Feminism, Pandemics affect men and women differently. An interesting read on gender roles in times on crisis, unpaid labor division, and how women will again sacrifice their payed job to stay home, take care of the kids, the rise of domestic violence, etc.
Stay san, stay safe is a collection of posters to show love to lifesavers and motivate people to stay home from all around the world. I really love how there’s so many different illustration styles, cultural references, etc.
The WebAIM report is out and it’s apparently getting worse. Seriously, it’s about time we start making the web more accessible, people rely now more than even on a lot of online services for security, health, information, etc.
“We didn’t know someone was going tu use this for harm” is never a good excuse! Why and you to do a “Bad Actor Brainstorming Workshop” to mitigate risks, privacy and security are areas where you WANT to mess with edgecases
