Every day, I share on twitter and LinkedIn a list of curated articles I read, resources and tools about UX Design, User Research, UI and mobile design, HTML, CSS, the web industry, some process, some inspiration, etc. This is an archive of everything I shared this week.
#Now – what I’m up to
This week I published a little gift for you: my “User Research and UX Design Starter Kit“. New version includes: my user interview cheatsheet, some more user journey maps, more links to help you. (if you got V1 last year, I already emailed you the link to V2)
“User Research: Is It Worth It?” Yes it is. While I agree PhD level is not mandatory to do research, I don’t think it’s “feasible for anyone”: you still need a lot of skills (training) to conduct valuable research, those takes time to acquire.
I am smiling and nodding at most of the things written here: “100 lessons for the year to come“. Also now I have like 30 articles to read to point 8 might be hard haha. More seriously thank you @uxdesigncc for that nice summary.
Back to CSS basics people, today: “The Rules of Margin Collapse“, a great read on what margins are (and are not) and how they work. This is usually one of those “CSS aha moments” for many people ^^ by Josh W. Comeau (@joshwcomeau)
“Design job titles explained“. This is based on an analysis of 200 job ads. I think it kind of reflects the current “job title mess”: whatever the title, companies expect designers who can do it all at different levels (research, ux designer, ui design,…)
99% Invisible is about all the thought that goes into the things we don’t think about — the unnoticed architecture and design that shape our world. They currently have an interesting series of episodes on homelessness
Useful tools and resources that will make your life easy
“Abusability Test Your Product“, a platform that tells you what potential harm or abuse can come out of some of the features you are building into your product.
