Pixels of the Week – February 23, 2020

Every week I share a list of curated articles, resources and tools about UX, UI and mobile design, HTML, CSS, the web industry, process inspiration and more…

This week’s selection: mobile UI inspiration, measuring aesthetics as UX metrics, CSS positioning, a critique of design thinking, responsive typography systems, UX workshops vs meetings, design process, a “same HTML different CSS” experiment, why JS is eating HTML, CSS & hover on touchscreens, styling buttons, links, inputs, etc.

#Now – what I’m up to


I will give a workshop on mobile UX on March 6, 2020 in Brussels. There’s still a few seats left and you can get a 15% discount with the code “stephanie15”. You will learn how to build a usable user centric mobile app, from guerrilla user research to quick prototype and testing.

On the blog, I published: my selection of 15+ Resources to help you find inspiration sorted by UI Patterns, Components, Flows and App Category.

Totally unrelated: this week I was playing with Procreate on the iPad and made my first animation: “Not my f***** job”. Feel free to use it if you need to.

T;DNR the one you should not miss


“UX debt is an accumulation of design and development decisions that negatively impact the users of a product or service.” Based on the reasons in the article I’d say that many projects also create this debt from the beginning and it accumulates. Time pressure, unrealistic constraints, ignoring standards, misinterpreting product vision, skipping user testing, design by committee, poor communication or documentation, etc. All of that can happen from the very first day of the project and continue all the way till the end

Interesting article

#Design Process

“How to redesign, step by step guide” this article nicely sums up my design process as well, it will help you (or have colleagues, stakeholders) understand that design is not just nice pixels at the end of a project but a process all along

#UX Design and Research

  • “UX Metrics: Why not measure aesthetics?” Interesting scale. When I was working for the University we measured it for a students’ interface with a scale in a 5 second test, it was also a nice way to see what was the first reaction towards the aesthetics or the new UI
  • Survey’s Up! A great wrap up by Erika Hall about why surveys often seem easier on the surface than other types of research but can take much more effort to get them right. The complexity lurks in the deep
  • UX Workshops vs. Meetings: What’s the Difference? Meetings are for people to share information. Workshops are for solving a problem. Purpose, scope, length, structure, and preparation differ for each.
  • “UX Debt in the Enterprise” an interesting Excel template tool to help you calculate the dept of your products and services (and a reminder of differents levels of UX maturity). I think this template could inspire me some of my own for current projects

#Design Thinking

“On Design Thinking” an amazing essay that goes back to the roots of design, the creation of “design thinking” and the use of this methodology to solve a city’s problems. This is a great critique of industrialised methods and their limits.

#Front End

  • Why JavaScript is Eating HTML, a great wrap up that covers HTML in JS, imperative vs declarative programming, why and when using such frameworks (like React) is great and when you should not use them.
  • Toward Responsive Elements, why Container Queries is a super complex topic for browsers and a some progress that was made into that direction.

#CSS #Mobile

Finally, a CSS only solution to :hover on touchscreens – TL; DR: It’s @media(hover: hover) and (pointer: fine) {}, but the specification has not been finalized yet.

#CSS Naming

“Typography in Design Systems” an article from SuperFriendly on typography systems and finding name for those classes




“CSS Positioning” a nice introduction to CSS positioning with cute illustrations


“Same HTML, Different CSS” a reminder of the power of CSS when it comes to styling the same element différents ways, sort of like CSS Zen Garden but on a component level.

Useful tools and plugins that will make your life easy


“5 monospaced fonts with cool coding ligatures” if you are looking for your next IDE font 🙂

10 things you need to know today: February 23, 2020


Sanders handily wins Nevada caucuses

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has decisively won Nevada's Democratic caucuses, most major outlets have declared with 50 percent of precincts reporting as of Sunday morning. Sanders has more than twice the votes of his nearest competitor former Vice President Joe Biden, and exit polls taken throughout Saturday indicated Sanders was well out in front. "We have just put together a multigenerational, multiracial coalition, which is not only going to win in Nevada it’s going to sweep the country," Sanders said at a rally Saturday in San Antonio, Texas, while results trickled in. Sanders more narrowly won the caucus and primary contests in Iowa and New Hampshire earlier this month, but Nevada provides a far more diverse testing ground than those heavily white states. Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg is in a distant third. [The New York Times, CNN]


South Korea on highest possible alert as coronavirus spreads

South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Sunday raised South Korea's coronavirus alert to Level 4, or "serious," the highest it can possibly go after the number of infections increased to 602 and a fifth person died. Moon didn't provide specifics as to how the country plans to fight the virus' spread, but raising the alert level authorizes the government to enact measures such as banning visitors from certain countries, restricting public transportation, and even locking down cities. Elsewhere, Iran said it would close schools, universities, and cultural centers across 14 provinces after eight people died from the virus there. In the United States, a federal judge issued a temporary restraining order Friday night banning the transportation of any infected people to Costa Mesa, California, where U.S. officials had reportedly planned to move patients into a state-owned facility this week. [The New York Times, The Associated Press]


National security adviser says he hasn't seen any intel on Russian election interference

In an interview set to air on ABC News' This Week on Sunday, National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien denied being aware of U.S. intelligence reports that Russia is interfering to help President Trump secure a second term in the Oval Office. He did acknowledge he hasn't sought out any information about the reports, but he said he considers it a "non-story" based on leaks. O'Brien said the Trump administration has been "very tough" on Russia and has urged Moscow to stay out of U.S. elections, adding that if anyone came forward with something different, he'd be willing to take a look at it more closely. For now, though, he says the report doesn't "make any sense." Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was also briefed that Moscow was attempting to aid his Democratic primary campaign. [The Associated Press, ABC News]


Buttigieg begs Democrats to 'take a sober look' at Sanders

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg finished in third place in Nevada's Democratic caucuses as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was projected the winner on Saturday night. Buttigieg congratulated Sanders and acknowledged they have many goals in common, but he pivoted to ask that "before we rush to nominate Sen. Sanders ... let us take a sober look at what is at stake." He said Sanders "believes in an inflexible, ideological revolution that leaves out most Democrats, not to mention most Americans," and even accused Sanders of furthering a "tenor of combat, division, and polarization" that would never change "the toxic tone of our politics."

Erdogan to meet with Putin, Merkel, Macron as tensions in Syria escalate

Turkey retaliated Saturday by destroying 21 "regime targets” after Russian-backed forces killed a Turkish soldier in a bomb attack in northwest Syria, where tensions are escalating. Ankara has sent thousands of troops into Syria, just south of the Turkish border, in an effort to stop an offensive by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces — who are supported by Moscow — that is forcing thousands of Syrians to flee to Turkey. Talks between Turkey and Russia have stalled, but Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan did say Saturday he would meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and French President Emmanuel Macron in March to discuss the situation. [The Guardian, Politico]


G20 compromises with U.S. objections over climate change reference in final communique

Officials at the Group of 20 Summit in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, agreed Sunday on the wording of a final communique which references climate change, despite the United States' reported objection to its inclusion. The draft contains language concerning the implications of climate change on financial stability, but climate change no longer appears on a list of downside risks to global economic growth. Overall, the communique reportedly predicts an increase in global growth in both 2020 and 2021, but rising geopolitical and trade tensions, as well as policy uncertainty, concerned its authors as possible risks to that forecast. [Reuters, The Hill]


Buffett reassures shareholders in annual letter

Berkshire Hathaway Inc. underperformed in 2019, its stock rising 11 percent compared to a 31.5 percent total return in the S&P 500, but the conglomerate's CEO and chair Warren Buffett sought to reassure investors in his annual shareholder letter Saturday, which is in line with his longstanding opinion that long-term performance should be prioritized over short-term fluctuations in the stock market. He defended the company's decision to invest heavily in stocks even though it's been several years since Berkshire Hathaway made a major acquisition of a company. He said while he'd prefer to buy a whole company, the "fickle" stock market means stocks are the safer bet. The 89-year-old Buffett also said the company is well-prepared for the future should he or his 96-year-old business partner and Berkshire vice chair Charlie Munger die. [The Wall Street Journal, Reuters]


New Jersey governor to undergo kidney surgery

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) said Saturday he will undergo surgery in March to remove a likely-cancerous tumor on his kidney, adding that he is expected to make a full recovery. "The prognosis is very good and I'm profoundly grateful to my doctors for detecting the tumor early," he wrote on Twitter. He said he does not anticipate having to undergo chemotherapy or radiation treatment. The 62-year-old Murphy is still expected to deliver his annual budget address for the 2021 fiscal year next week, but will then reportedly retreat from public duties before slowly easing back into his role in the weeks following the surgery. [NJ.com, USA Today]


Lizzo, Just Mercy win big at NAACP Image Awards

Lizzo took home the award for entertainer of the year at the 51st NAACP Image Awards on Saturday night, while Just Mercy dominated in the film categories, picking up the outstanding motion picture award, and its stars Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx winning for their performances. Meanwhile, Lupita Nyong'o, who many people believed should have gotten a closer look at the Academy Awards, took home the hardware for her role in Us. On the TV side, comedy Black-ish and Ava Duvernay's drama When They See Us dominated. The ceremony also took a moment to pay tribute to the late NBA superstar Kobe Bryant who died earlier this year in a helicopter crash. [Deadline, The Hollywood Reporter]


Fury defeats Wilder, takes heavyweight belt

Tyson Fury defeated Deontay Wilder after seven rounds in Las Vegas on Saturday night, ending the latter's five-year reign as the World Boxing Council heavyweight champion. Fury, who hails from the United Kingdom, was aggressive during the match, knocking the American Wilder to the floor in the third and fifth rounds. By the end of the seventh round, Wilder's corner threw in the towel, which meant his title belt would transfer after 10 previous defenses. Wilder praised Fury after the match, but he sounded disappointed that his corner ended the fight, saying he "was ready to go out on my shield." Fury and Wilder had previously fought in 2018, which ended with the judges ruling the match a split draw. [ESPN, BBC]
