Best UX/UI resources for 2021
As a UX designer, especially being new to the field, I’m always trying to find new resources to utilize for the volunteer work I’m doing and design challenges I am working on. I stumbled upon an article that mentioned the best resources for this year and on in particular stood out to me.
It was using Project Checklists such as https://www.a11yproject.com/checklist/, the use the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) as a reference point. It’s a great way to keep yourself accountable while designing. It’s important to note that using this checklist doesn’t guarantee that your site/app is accessible, however, it will improve the user experience of your site/app.
One thing I’ve stumbled upon during my volunteer work is not checking for accessibility right away and having to redo a few pages, ideas, etc. I’m excited to start using this during my design process to create better designs.
