A few of our faves: February 28
Feb 28, 2014
Just like February, today’s roundup is short and sweet! Here are a few things that warmed us up during winter’s deep freeze:
- Ethan Marcotte offers his esteemed opinion on responsive web design in The Atlantic’s look at “The Year Most News Home Pages Looked the Same.” He did, uh, quite literally write the book on the subject.
- Wordsmith extraordinaire Mandy Brown posits the notion of “more drink, less blood,” whilst exploring the comic mode versus the tragic mode, on The Pastry Box Project.
- User Experience Design lead at Mailchimp and author of Designing for Emotion, Aarron Walter talks with theuxintern.com about how he got started in UX, and offers some excellent and encouraging advice to folks just starting out!
- You’re just three days and three hundred dollars away from crucial project research. Erika Hall proves it in this quick look at “Minimum Viable Ethnogaphy.”
- Clearly on fire, Erika goes on to demystify the concept of design on The Accelerators blog via The Wall Street Journal.
- On Episode 15 of The Nudge podcast, Ethan Marcotte discusses knowing your tools inside and out... or not.
- Jason Santa Maria asks “...did I put more positivity into the world today than negativity?,” and offers a token of advice: let's take a breath.
- In case you missed it (hey, we spell things out here), our own Sally Kerrigan wrote a fantastic, incredibly helpful piece breaking down the writing process.
