Pixels of the Week – March 18, 2016

This content is 6 years old. Remember that the following content might be outdated.

Every week I post a lot of my daily readings about Web, UI and UX Design, mobile design, webdesign tools  and useful ressources, inspiration on twitter and other social networks.

This week’s selection: user testing explained in data visualtions and UX explained in GIFs, mobile design and the bottom navigation bar on Android, the :not() CSS selector specificity and the best unit for media queries, Adobe Comet now beeing named Adobe XD. You’ll also find some musical procrastination, a tutorial on CSS shapes, some postCSS tools, UI examples, a new palette color tool, an image galerie made with CSS hovers and a timeline tool for github.

You can follow me on twitter to get a dose of links every days.

TL;DNR the one you should not miss
