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.
I just also got a new MacBook from work with a touchbar. I feel like I’m 2 years lat to the party, but honestly after 2 hours if seeing this thing offer auto-corrections in most tools that distracted me from writing I just switched it to fixed buttons, like, my old physical keyboard. Yeahy for new technologies I guess?
TL;DNR the one you should not miss
To all my JS/Front-End audience, this is an important article (and some great resources at the end): The Importance of Learning CSS by Josh W. Comeau (@joshwcomeau)
“Legibility in User Interfaces” an interesting article by Nitish Khagwal on micro copy details that can make or break a design. (Those are generic UI guidelines though, always test this kind of thing with your own users)
“HSL: a color format for humans” by Paul Hebert (@HaulPebert). Yes, this resonates so much with me, HSL pickers (but also HSB AI and PS picker even if they are different) always made so much more sense to me than the RGB ones ^^
Another great episode of @katerutter and @lauraklein’s podcast on predicting disasters. I always feel like I’m the strange “doomsday lady” when I mention how something might get abused, blank stares “don’t be so dramatic” replies, well, nope.
News in the industry
Hum, is @figmadesign starting to play on @axurerp’s prototyping territory with those interactive components, I’m curious. Next step functions, conditions and variables? 😀
Some fun CSS transitions you can copy paste for your projects by @argyleink (as always with motion:be careful about accessibility here, things moving around might trigger motion sickness, use with caution with prefers-reduced-motion ^^)
