Pixels of the Week – March 20, 2022

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

This week, I presented a talk at axecon. The written version of that talk is available on my blog: A Designer’s Guide to Documenting Accessibility & User Interactions. The feedback were amazing, and I want to thank you all again for the kind words. For now, you can watch the replay of my talk page once you logged in until April.

Also little reminder: I’m presenting my “An introduction to UX design and research” next week, a 45 min presentation where I explain what I do for a living. You can still register for free.
