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.
“Designing search for your product” I like how @shashanksahayy here splits the search in 5 phases (capture, interpret, match, rank and present) and explains in a lot of details how to design a search for your product. Great read!
I love that article and I think this also applies to design: sometimes, programming (design) feels like magic: you chant some arcane incantation and a fleet of robots do your bidding. But sometimes, magic is mundane. If you’re willing to embrace the grind you’ll look like a magician.
You know how sometimes you know a tool or a method but have no idea how it’s called? That’s me and “Intercept Recruitment“, I knew the practice, used it even, but did not really know it was called that in English ^^
Useful tools and resources that will make your life easy
This is nice: Can I Email, the equivalent of Can I Use, but for email clients to know which HTML, CSS feature is supported in which email client 🙂
I’m intrigued by this Figma board to document accessibility. I already document a lot of things in my designs for accessibility but I wonder: – will FE devs not complain that the designer is now intruding in their job (happened to a friend of mine, React devs really did NOT like it). Will those guidelines not be sometimes far away from the actual code used for the component (maybe unless you document those with the dev team directly in figma?) – this also means designers need a super high level of “code accessibility” knowledge for the aria part. A lot of designers struggle with the basics of contrast, so, ARIA is quite next level, especially when you enter into interactive components. I still really like the idea of documenting all of that, just wondering if it will actually be used.
This is a really nice free tool that offers live captioning in the browser, but also has a lot of integrations with other video conference tools: webcaptioner
Face generator: I am still debating if this is awesome, fascinating, creepy, or all of them, but here we go, a face generator that let’s you create a unique person in a few clicks
