Every week I post a lot of my daily readings about Web, UI and UX Design, mobile design, webdesign tools and useful resources, inspiration on twitter and other social networks.
This week’s selection: UI design tips, designer ethics and the end of amateurism, Design Sprint facilitation and brand design sprints, handlebar UI, notifications, onboarding framework, progress tracking UI, CSS variables, CSS margin collapse, SVG form animation, CSS breakpoints, UI prototyping tool working with Sketch, hand-coding SVG, AMP stories.
You can follow me on twitter to get a dose of links every days.
TL;DNR the two articles you should not miss this week
This is a really nice article for students and design beginners: 7 Practical UI tips (shadows, borders, backgrounds, etc.) to help you achieve visual hierarchy in your design.
I want to quote half of this article on ethics an designer’s responsibly to the world, so please read it: “Design’s Lost Generation” by Mike Monteiro. Amateur hour is over, design isn’t art. Fucking YES!

Revisiting Margin Collapse
“My Talk Writing Process” by Val Head. Soooo glad to read that I’m not the only one hoarding articles, videos & books pieces into a giant Google doc. Last 45min conf was 30 pages of notes & I also keep updating the notes after, in case I give the talk again ^^
How To Build A Notification That You Won’t Hate, by installing a light bulb ^^ nice idea.
#Invision #Design tools
“InVision Studio is out—but are designers migrating to a new tool again?” True, eventually someone might come with a “Design tool testing retreat” concept: one week of hiking, biking, drinking juice & doing stuff designers with beards do, + testing tools.
AMP gets stories as well (not quite sure about that one)
How to Hand Code SVG, if you like challenges
Useful resources, tools and plugins that will make your life easy
