Pixels of the Week – May 1, 2022

#Now – what I’m up to

I designed my first mobile wall paper! I also discovered a really strange interface this week. My friend Myriam said “Heart surgeons use checklists. You are NOT better than them.” and I loved that some much I turned it into a little picture. I also think this applies to other fields, like UX and accessibility as well.
