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.
Link or Button? Use an anchor element (link) when you need to connect two sources, use a button element when you need to let user perform a programmable action (like submitting a form, opening a dialog). As simple as that! by Ashlee M Boyer
Small interesting toughs on Feature Creep. It’ easy to add features to a product, but at some point, you must be smart and also know when to clean the slate. This is why measuring after a feature was launched is really important!
Need a nice font, with extra wonk? Why don’t you try Fraunces. It comes with roman and italic styles, and it’s a very nice variable font with a wonk axis!
Let’s face it: we all design for the best case scenario, especially when it’s print design and advertisement. And them, things get messy. Meet fockups: a place to find mockups to display your designs in bad but realistic conditions.
Remember Spirographs? Meet Rotae, a generative art collection based on the vast array of beautiful shapes that can appear from the seemingly simple process of letting circles rotate on (many more) circles
Useful tools and resources that will make your life easy
An interesting catalogue of design patterns gathered from the observations and research of Maggie Appleton. I see a lot of the folk interfaces, people re appropriating existing software to solve their problems in enterprise UX.
Brickit: this is a really cool idea: scatter your bricks on a table, take a photo and this (only iOS, meh) app will give you ideas of what you can build with those.
If you are looking for an open source tool to schedule meeting, cal.com looks promising.
