Pixels of the Week – October 28, 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: styleguide documentation, microinteractions in User Experience, humor and UX, confession of a flawed designer, improving chatbots, skeleton screens study, usability and innovation, UX writing, design search experience, 30 second CSS snippets, learning Adobe XD in 5 minutes, and more.

You can follow me on twitter to get a dose of links every days.

I gave a talk

The last 2 weeks I talked at DevFest Nantes and Blend Web Mix Lyon about template / UI frameworks and how to buid a product or service with them while still doing some user research and having a user centric process. The slides are in French and available here.
