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: why you might not need a mobile application, webdesign trends for 2016 and 35 UX articles of this year, a little bit about mobile forms and nice articles on design, CSS grids, CSS, SVG (SMIL / JavaScript / Clip-path) animations. You’ll also find an history of the fonts used in Star Wars, some accessibility basics, some JavaScript functions to replace jQuery and a little reminder of CSS properties used for typography.

TL;DNR the one you should not miss
