Best of 2019, Neumorphism, 3D in Figma — and more UX this week

A weekly selection of design links, brought to you by your friends at the UX Collective.

20 things I learned by editing UX articles this year

I feel lucky. Being one of the editors at the UX Collective allows me to read tons of great stories every week, submitted by designers from all over the world. People who have different backgrounds than my own, work at different companies, face different challenges every day. People who simply dedicate their time to sharing their learnings with the broader community.

After reviewing and publishing more than a thousand articles this year, here are some of my personal favorites. Read full story

The UX Collective newsletter is a self-funded newsletter read by over 121,200 designers every week. The best way you can support it is by sharing it with your friends.

How to write a kickass README

Arguably the single most important piece of documentation for any open source project is the README. A good README not only informs people what the project does and who it is for but also how they use and contribute to it.

If you write a README without sufficient explanation of what your project does or how people can use it then it pretty much defeats the purpose of being open source as other developers are less likely to engage with or contribute towards it.
