Pixels of the Week – March 18, 2016
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
#CSS #Media queries
PX, EM or REM Media Queries? (tldnr; the only unit that performed consistently across all four browsers is em)
Design user research explained for everyone with a few GIFs
Bottom navigation bars are now part of the Material design guidelines. I think we’ll have to get used to that one, still a little bit strange for me to stack the nav on top of OS buttons
Project Comet is now Adobe XD, available, but only on mac for now, meeeeh :/
