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: a cute Fox illustration, GDPR ressources (obviously), finding time to learn, a cool tool to generate gradients and background images, cute little colourful experiments, a platform for bad ideas, mobile apps in China, User research, user flow, dark patterns, how and when ask for user permissions in a mobile app.
You can follow me on twitter to get a dose of links every days.
TL;DNR the one you should not miss
I created a cute little “Zero Fox Given” Illustration, it will be available as a sticker soon. Let me know if you are attending Pixel Pioneer (Bristol), Flupa UX Days (Paris), Voxxed (Luxembourg) or Ampersand (Brighton) in June and want one 🙂
- The biggest WTF in design right now. Nice article on user flow, what, why and how to build them.
- Research versus Research – “It should not surprise you that scientists tend to think of craft as something…less than their rarified work. It isn’t, and don’t let them instill in you any doubt about the value, importance, and difficulty of our craft.”
- Dark Patterns and Aggressive Persuasion – 3 Reasons to Avoid!
- “Good Questions, Bad Asks: The UX Of Questions In User Onboarding” a great read on How and when ask for user permissions in a mobile app.
“7 Insane Features from Top Chinese Apps, and what they tell us about the human condition“, really interesting article, I’m between “kind of makes sense” and “OMG humanity what are you doing”
Finding time to learn – quick straight to the point article, I like that 🙂
