On Twitter, LinkedIn and Mastodon, I share 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. And some extra links that I decided to only share for the blog readers. Also, subscribe to the newsletter to get notified when those are published!
Building Your Color Palette: I’m sharing this one again, it’s one of the best introduction to color palette for beginners I’ve found. It nicely shows that you don’t just need the “palette” you built, but greys and accent colors (it misses a part about accessibility though)
Why you shouldn’t trust AI search engines: “ Essentially, we—the users—are now doing the work of testing this technology for free. We’re all guinea pigs at this point”, yeah this is what happens when you push to prod something not ready.
Accessibility Memes: there aren’t any. So Sheri Byrne-Haber made some, and borrowed one she really liked.
FlappyBirdle: I don’t know why anyone would mix worlde and flappy bird, this is the most stressful game ever, BUT, if you are up for a challenge, here you go
Useful tools and resources that will make your life easy
ScreenplaySubs a browser extension for Netflix that syncs up movies with screenplays, displaying them side by side. It shows you if a dialogue was improvised, a scene omitted, etc. It can be a fun way to discover behind the scenes of your favorites movies (if they are on Netflix)
The Micropedia: An awesome resource to better understand micro aggression marginalized groups face. Identifying those is a first step into avoiding them and building a more inclusive society, workplace, etc.
Modern Ilustration Archive: Explore the archives or 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and 1970s illustrations (mostly print design, advertisement, etc.)
Typetrials: a free platform to test and experiment with fonts, especially if those are variable fonts. You can upload yours (or use the platform fonts):
Vikunja: an open-source, self-hostable to-do app that you can configure different way, including trello style.
Stable Attribution: this website claims it shows you the human made images that were used to by an AI to generate an image. Interesting to see the dataset (and might interest some illustrators to see if their content is in datasets without their consent)
