Pixels of the Week – December 9, 2016

This content is 4 years old. Remember that the following content might be outdated.

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: user experience and radio buttons/checkboxes, card UI design, Bauhaus history, design sprint, user testing, CSS and responsive typography, shopping card abandonment, Sketch vs Photoshop on Windows, optimistic UIs and the future of the web. Also some CSS grid layout, an animation tutorial and some progressive web apps with a few CSS and JS demos.

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