This content is 6 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 Remember that the following content might be outdated.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 ressources, inspiration on twitter and other social networks.

This week’s selection: performance and page weight, user experience and branding, questions on flat design, some really nice links for your inspiration, a free version of a Caslon revival, visual affordance evolution and some tools to help you design and code nice sites.

TL;DNR the one you should not miss
