#Now – what I’m up to

This week I published An Introduction to User Journey Map + PDF Templates , a tool to help designers get a visual representation of the whole experience users have with a product or a service. I guide you step by step on how to build a user journey map for your product or service. At the end of the article you will find the slides but also two free templates to help your build user journey maps for your own projects.

I was also interviewed for and article on “Conduct Usability and User Testing for Mobile Apps Like a Pro

TL;DNR the one you should not miss

#InclusiveDesign

Designing forms for gender diversity and inclusion” best option is still don’t ask for it if you don’t need it

Interesting article

#UIGuidelines

#UserResearch

#CSS

#Design

Cross-Cultural Design” a small extract of Senongo Akpem’s book and I really want to buy it to read more now!!

OMG I’m working remotely, now what?!” With many tech companies going remote, this article is a gold mine to help you work remotely with your team especially if you are not used to do that

#Empathy #Psychology

5 Ways to Spot Emotional Immaturity” an interesting video

#Ethics

Fiverr: it’s bad, guys — it’s bad ” of course, a service that offers $5 logos is bound to have unethical practises, the article details how bad it actually is

#Mobile

What Does A Foldable Web Actually Mean?” I’m not sure it’s super different from multi screens on computers but I like the idea of people exploring this area

#Readability

Capital letters, some readability Guidelines

Inspiration, fun experiments and great ideas

#Culture

Now is a good time to remind you the existence of Google Arts and Culture, a place to virtually discover art from all around the world. Just because you are stuck at home, doesn’t mean you can’t travel to many places 🙂

#Illustrations

Amber Share illustrated all 62 US National Parks based on one star reviews and it’s amazingly fun.

Videos and Podcasts

#UX

Tutorials

#CSS

#Front-End

Anna Lytical made some people mad that she copy/paste too much so she made a website where she EXCLUSIVELY copy/paste her code. The website is very simple and let’s you know if RuPaul’s Drag Race is on that day!

Useful tools and plugins that will make your life easy

#Tool

Drama, another interesting prototyping tool

#Remote

Remote Vibe for Virtual Teams” a free booklet based on an extensive research about what is needed to have a great team working in a remote way. There’s great ideas in it especially if your team is not used to work remotely.

#FreeIcons

Iconfinder is giving away some free Coronavirus awareness icons related to hygiene and awareness about the virus spread. You can use them for signs, posters, flyers, and similar.

#Colors

Grabient, a gallery of gradients for gradient lovers and enthusiasts

#Generator

I’m not sure what this could be used for but the idea is fun: Faux Code Generator
