Pixels of the Week – Sunday November 20, 2022

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.

#Now – what I’m up to

I moved to a new flat, yeahy. Which means I currently take more time than usual to answer requests. Don’t worry I will eventually come back to you.

I am also putting the final touches to my “Designing Better Products Masterclass”. It’s a 5×2h + Q&A, Mon & Tue, November 28 – December 12. Participants will get ones of resources: templates and checklists to help them get started with research, cheat-sheets & cards to not forget anything (including my brand new user interview cards), a big Miro template to help with information architecture, etc.  Go grab a ticket!
