Pixels of the Week – November 4, 2018
Every week I post a lot of my daily readings about Web, UI and UX Design, mobile design, webdesign tools and useful resources, inspiration on twitter and other social networks.
This week’s selection: UX and Agile, user flows and wireframes, DNA of a Design, beautiful illustrations, PWA revenue lift, design thinking critics, CSS Grid and Media queries, text styles overrides in Sketch 52, mobile app screenshots, designing for better user choice and more.
You can follow me on twitter to get a dose of links every days.
TL;DNR the one you should not miss
How Marylou Faure Illustrates Women to Make Them Feel Good – With her playful, inflated-looking characters, the artist aims to inspire pride and self-confidence in the female form.
- Here is how UX Design Integrates with Agile and Scrum, and the importance of a full time designer in the team to make this work
- An illustrated guide on the different ‘resolutions’ of user flows, and when to use them. I really like this question: “What happens when things don’t follow the ‘happy path’?”, indeed, user flows help us plan for that kind of things
- Designing Better Choices for Your Users – interesting technics, but the opt-in by default makes me super uncomfortable, also I think it’s illegal for many things, hello explicit consent?! Persuasive should be used with caution, in an ethical way.
- DNA of a Designer – I want to be a strategic/service designer when I grow up
- Ideo breaks its silence on design thinking’s problems – Companies know they need to be more creative and innovative, and because they’re looking for fast ways to achieve those goals, they cut corners.
- The goal of design’s next generation? Radical accessibility
How to design scannable app screenshots – this is trendy but I wonder if it performs better, in the end users only see a small fraction of the app, will this be enough to convince them to download if they don’t know the product?
That’s really quick and cool: Concise Media Queries with CSS Grid
Inspiration, fun demos and Great ideas
horrorli build your own horror atmosphere, I really like this idea 😀
