Just as much for the web designer as the developer this week. Some brilliant UX inspiration and how to get users hooked on your interface. On top of that two new beautiful web frameworks to bootstrap your newest project, and a life changing chart library. This and more in this weeks web design and development inspiration rundown.
Big Little City
This is not your standard website. I usually post more commercial / business based websites, but this really caught my eye. It takes a section of the world (using real world maps) and creates a 3D rendered globe, with roads and all!
Designer Resources, Examples and Inspiration
How to get users hooked on your interface
Micro interactions happen through the functional, interactive details of a product, and details…aren’t just the details; they are the design.
The myth of human-centred design
The conventional interpretation of human-centered design wildly oversimplifies the relationship between people and technology. It’s time for a more nuanced approach, writes argodesign’s Mark Rolston.
Colour scale generator
Simple, easy to use colour gradient scale generator. Love it.
UX Design Interactions
A libary of design interactions to gleem inspiration from. New apps added weekly. Get this on your bookmark list!
Development Snippets, Samples, and Articles
A easy to use framework to quickly build fast, attractive websites!
Slide out box menu – Code snippet
A details menu with boxes that slide out in an irregular grid. The grid items get revealed individually with delays from the top right corner of the page.
I love a good chart. I have featured other great ones on the first blog of the series, and the 20th. This one is the cream of the crop. This is not a one size fits all solution, but rather charts for the modern web. Easier zooming and panning, event triggering, truly responsive, and speedy!
Argon Design System
A yet another beautiful framework to jump start your project. over 100 individual components, built with SASS and Bootstrap 4.
A bit of everything
Not every article needs a picture
If a picture is worth a thousand words, it’s hard for me to imagine there’ll be much value in the text of an article illustrated by a generic stock image.
The Bullshit Web
A great article on how the internet has turned into a place of uselessness, and how that can easily be changed. Loading numerous tracking scripts, images and adverts, that may or may not be of use.
