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.
This week’s selection: HTML/CSS stack, progressive enhancement, designing components, a beautiful typeface, motion and accessibility, CSS properties almanac, 2020 ipsum generator, terms and conditions, designer bias, infinite scroll, results of the NNgroup UX career survey, computer advertising pictures, an essay on newsletter, generative art, etc.
#Now – what I’m up to
What a week people, I never thought I would see the day were big social media would finally do something about the orange guy. It’s 5 years and too many hate messages to late, too late, but still. Wow. Also, I’m back to work, well, I’m still working remotely for now but still, back from a nice week of holidays. 2021 started with a foot injury while playing JustDance. Who knew that when they said “video games are dangerous” it meant “playing just dance might get you hurt”, so this was a stressful week.
“Is Progressive Enhancement Dead Yet?“, Heydon Pickering (@heydonworks) uses shark in a fez, Tony Hawk, and zombies to explain progressive enhancement in a fun educational black and white video. Also, JengaScript
“What a UX Career Looks Like Today” by @NNgroup. I like the split between UX Designer and UX Researcher, also don’t forget to check the full report for more details on skills, how to switch career, why a mentor is important and more.
“I agree“, an interesting project from 2018 by Dima Yarovinsky were he printed “terms of service” of the leading online services that we use on a daily basis on A4 to show how small and helpless we are against those.
There’s something relaxing with playing with those Generative Voronoi Splodges (PIXI) (by George Francis @georgedoescode) I really want to look into generative art this year but I guess you need some advanced programming skills for that?
