On Twitter and 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.
#Now – what I’m up to
I finally took the time to split my pages, my workshops, teachings and classes now have a dedicated page, if you are curious you can check all my workshops here.
I also created a very sarcastic “How to build a (not) delightful time picker” (this may or may not be inspired by real life events)
Interesting “State of Mobile UX” article. TLDNR: lines between Android and iOS, native and web get blurrier and more and more capabilities (like biometric authentication) come to both supports, too many overlays and in app browsing.
Designing out of difficult times. Design matters, and not just in good times. Design can help overcome issues during volatile bad times, yet, usually design teams are the first ones to get fired when things are economically bad. The article gives a few nice examples of how good design helped shift and solve problems in time of crisis. So, next time you think “yeah, we don’t need those designers”, maybe, think again.McKinsey research has shown that companies that embrace the business value of design are better able to respond to shifting landscapes and generate improved performance
What the fnu? This is what happens when systems, tools and administrations don’t want to take into account the diversity of the world we live in, you end up with people getting Fnu (for “First Name Unknown”) as first name on official papers.
How a game developer reworked his flash game to make it available to steam users in 2022. I really love those kind of rabbit holes that show how technology evolves and how people adapted. Also the game looks fun.
All Things AI, a place to find different AI tools that you could need, ordered by categories
Looking for your next font? Meet simpletype, a tiny type foundry with very cute specimens for a very small price
I had some fun with Looka, an AI that generates brand identities for you. Not sure about the “Intelligence” in AI here, since it’s mostly mixing multiple styles and user still has to pick and chose, but it was fun.
Tired of manually writing your replies to people on Twitter, hopping to gain some algorithm juice? Why don’t you give tweetGPT a try (honestly, can’t be worse than some actual replies). I am sarcastic here, I think this will just bring even more noise, yeahy.
Oh, Jeremy Keith wrote a free online “Learn Responsive Design!” course. I really like his distinction between macro and micro layouts. I called them “primary” and “secondary” breakpoints, I might borrow his terminology for my students.
