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.
#Now – what I’m up to
My flat looked liked a Dexter crime scene the whole week because they were changing windows and painting the walls, but now it’s all good. So I’m back to turning talks into (long) transcript articles, playing League of Legends Wild Rift (they released Senna, yeahy new fun support!) and enjoying the sun for now.
Part of me is also wondering if I should stop putting images in those articles (and just keep the main one) because this is hosting for things that are not really essential, requests, etc. What do you think? (you can reach out on twitter or email)
TL;DNR the one you should not miss
Access Guide, a introduction to WCAG 2.1 accessibility guidelines and attempt to make them easier to understand with example and resources, by Alex Chen
“Looking at WCAG 2.5.5 for Better Target Sizes” a interesting wrap up of a lot of things you need to consider when designing buttons and links that work on mobile, the key is to understand context of use of that link and style accordingly.
Collecting Metrics During Qualitative Studies. Don’t report descriptive statistics like success rates and averages unless you ran a quantitative study. Reported numbers must be qualified with statistical information such as confidence intervals or statistical significance.
“Gender-inclusive design is the only way” some examples on how to get your content more gender inclusive, from actual written content to forms, illustrations on your websites, etc. Language does matter. It shapes the way we see the world.
“Detecting Hover-Capable Devices” there are new media queries that will let you detect if the user primary pointing device is capable of hovering. I still wonder what happens to hybrid devices with those though.
Video and conference talks
“Conversational Design with Erika Hall” a great 30 talk where Erika Hall explain how interfaces should be more conversational by using language in design. Note that this is NOT about chatbots, it’s broader topic on communication.
