Pixels of the Week – December 11, 2015

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: really interesting CSS ressources and tutorials (vertical-align, blend-mode, performance, etc.), a little bit of UX design, cognitive psychology and neuroscience, tips on using transparent backgrounds and great general design advice, web performance but also typography ressources.
