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 also finished writing one article on User Research that is currently under review for a publication #Teasing. And I am in the process of writing a big series of 5 detailed articles on User Journey Maps for another publication. I think bad weather helps me write content, since I just want to stay under a plaid and then write from my couch (anyone said cliché?)
TL;DNR the one you should not miss
To achieve a sense of perspective, @adactio onboards us into a journey of how the web came to be, how it evolved, and what the future could hold for us. Have we verschlimmbessert the web? You can check it out as a video or read the transcript
“Design is not art, and UX is not design“, strange title but interesting read on the evolution of our industry. You still need dedicated UX practitioners to do serious research, while every department should also have a UX driven mindset.
When does it make sense to skip user research? Are existing sources enough? Do you have enough data to move forward already? Can the research be done later? There’s no simple formula to decide, you need to analyse your projects to know.
Apparently YouTube is testing a feature to get even more recommendations from their algorithm, “beyond what you usually watch”, well, here’s a case study. I’m not convinced and like @GrowthDotDesign’s proposal better ^^
