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
I had a lot going on this week: the usual hour of teaching class for a master degree. Then we recorded a panel about design around the world and it was awesome (I want to share the link but the content is currently restricted on Linkedin I need to check how to solve that). Then I gave a talk about design systems and reusable components (the video won’t be online this time though) and I gave 3 hours of teaching class in a row. This is the first time I have such a long teaching class session. It’s quite exhausting but also fun. And the good is that keynote finally lets you have notes in the “present into windows” mode which is super useful to still see the chat while you teach (because keynote goes full screen on top of almost any app in the regular presenter mode).
“Designing calculator apps” by Florens Verschelde (@fvsch) an interesting take on skeuomorphism, reproducing the physical world and going beyond that. TBH I never use calculator app in the MB, I always type the calculation I need in spotlight ^^
Play the “cookies speed run” game to show how good you’ve become at not allowing cookies, but there’s traps! I wish this was just a satyr but this is actually pretty close to the real shady experience of cookies banners on today’s websites :/
If you are into surrealist illustrations with a lot of neon pastel colors, you might like the work of saiman chow (@saimanchow). Warning: a lot of colors and things moving around on the website, might be trigger motion sickness
A fun “which is the right company” logo quiz. 13/15, not bad considering that the 2 I got wrong are companies I never heard of. (Might be difficult if you are colorblind tough, some differences here are only in the colors)
This is fun if you are intro retro looking pixel art games: play, create and share tiny games and other cartridges! PICO-8 has 1000s of community-made projects and resources
