Every week I share a list of curated articles, resources and tools about UX, UI and mobile design, HTML, CSS, the web industry, process inspiration and more…
This week’s selection: accessibility guidelines for designers, my free user journey miro template, user researchers skills, proximity design principle, difference between different CSS, HTML and JS properties, CSS borders with background-image gradients, CSS grid masonry solution, CSS content-visibility and performance, CSS Drop-Shadow filter, Figma for presentations, fun design quizz, CSS explained with comics, media accessibility bookmark for twitter, etc.
Also, this sentence resonates with me a lot: “Anybody can ask questions, good user research is about asking the right questions, the right ways, to the right people, at the right time” — Michele Ronsen from Curiosity Tank
TL;DNR the one you should not miss
Accessibility guidelines are sometimes hard to understand, here’s a checklist by Geri Reid to help ensure the products she designs (and the products you design now) comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
“In-demand skills for UX Researchers” an analysis of 23 UX Research job posting from big tech companies, interesting results, this should help a lot of HR people understand what is actually expected from a User Researcher
“Proximity Principle in Visual Design“, one of the Gestalt design fundamentals that let users understand what elements belong together illustrated and how to respect this on responsive sites as well
“The History of Queer Coding” (in cinema, nothing to do with programming language ^^) by Jessica Kellgren-Fozard. She also has interesting videos about disability (deafness, chronic illness) for people interested in accessibility.
