»The solution is almost never more UI.« — Luke Wroblewski
I'm in the middle of moving to my new apartment hence I'm sitting here between piles of boxes, using my neighbor's wireless network and typing those lines. A quite stressful week of dragging furnishings is behind me, with another one ahead...
Nevertheless I read some interesting stuff this week, so let's jump right in:
- Brilliant explanatory essay on information theory by Christopher Olah. A very approachable, visual take on this topic - Visual Information Theory
- The Fundamentals of User Experience in Virtual Reality
- FontReach is an amazing tool that scans »top million sites« and shows their font usage
- How Google’s Primer team approached UX - Making Learning Easy by Design
- »People don’t buy products, they buy better versions of themselves, accomplished through using the product.« A summary of Anders Toxboe's talk at this year's Push Conference 2015 - Beyond Usability: Designing With Persuasive Patterns
- You should know by now that I'm a huge fan of ustwo's Monument Valley hence I really recommend this well written behind-the-scenes article - Secrets behind the success of Monument Valley
- A first look at the Google Play store redesign
- Eric A. Meyer on Facebook's new Reactions - A More Compassionate Facebook
That's it for this week! This issue was powered by my neighbor's internet connection ;-) Thanks for reading and have a nice one!
See you next week
