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.
Also, I got some really cool “do your user research/ask your customers” themed stickers. You can buy them here.
TL;DNR the one you should not miss
By the way if you are on mac Simdaltonism is a nice open source tool that lets you simulate different forms of color blindness by adding an overlay on what you want to test.
“Optimism forces people to blame themselves for their own failures and misery; to never look at the structures of power that contribute to this. You just didn’t try hard enough, and you weren’t good enough” a great article against performative positivity.
“This Is Not Good Design” an interesting essay by Christopher Butler (@chrbutler) that has nothing to do with UI or visual design but goes deeply into ethical and political concepts around design. Sorry, not sorry.
Internal vs. External Validity of UX Studies: Poorly designed qualitative or quantitative research may produce invalid results. Avoid encouraging certain responses or behaviors and make sure that your study conditions and participants are representative.
Hiding Content Responsibly by @HugoGiraudel, an interesting article on the different methods to “hide” content and what happens with those regarding accessibility
I really liked Margot Bloomstein’s talk on “Content strategy for slow experiences“. We tend to want to make everything fast and remove all frictions, this is a good reminder that sometimes slowing user down and friction is actually good.
