A More Readable Alternative to Light Gray Text How do you visually distinguish headings from paragraphs on an interface? Titles from subtitles? Data from metadata? Today, many designers use light gray text for contrast but don’t realize they’re making their text unreadable. Users have to strain and work harder to read light gray text. This extra effort could involve moving their eyes closer […]

Sociologie des emojis Si vous me lisez depuis plusieurs années, vous savez que les emojis sont pour moi un sujet passionnant puisqu’ils relient le graphisme, la communication, la politique et le détournement ! Je vous avais déjà écrit cet article sur l’utilisation des hashtagmoji, sur l’apparition des nouveaux emojis, sur l’appauvrissement du langage, ou sur le fait de pouvoir se souvenir de ses sentiments par des emojis…
Par ailleurs, lorsque j’étais chercheur en design à l’ENSADLab il y a 10 ans maintenant, j’étudiais justement le rapport émotionnel dans le numérique et les réseaux sociaux. Fascinant sujet qui ne m’a jamais quitté depuis. N’empêche ...

How to Make Similar Button Choices Less Confusing When choosing between several buttons, users have to read the labels and think about each action. This thinking incurs an average cognitive load. However, when two or more button choices are similar, the user’s cognitive load spikes. Now they have to figure out the difference between those buttons. They’re debating in their head which button […]

Que faire des 100€ d’indemnité du gouvernement ? Vous n’êtes pas sans savoir que le gouvernement d’Emmanuel Macron va donner 100€ au peuple français. Appelé « chèque énergie », « prime inflation », ou « Les 100€ à Manu » cet argent est destiné aux personnes dont le revenu net mensuel est inférieur à 2000€ par mois. Évidemment, cet argent ne tient pas compte du patrimoine, du foyer, de la situation d’endettement, de la précarité, du handicap, etc.
En réfléchissant un peu pour poursuivre ma quête de décroissance, je me suis dit que ces 100€ seraient plus utiles si je les donnaient à une association, une ONG mais ...
Votre agenda militant & indépendant ! Il y a quelques mois j’ai eu la chance de travailler sur un superbe projet organisé par le Collectif AMI, projet qui s’intitule, l’Agenda Militant & Indépendant. Le projet vient de sortir, il est simple mais bien concret : répertorier les rendez-vous s’inscrivant dans les luttes contemporaines : manifestations, rassemblements, piquets de grève, etc.
Ces événements répertoriés ont aussi une portée politique évidente : rencontres, débats, ateliers, lectures, concerts de soutien, projections, etc. Le site a été publié vendredi, c’est donc tout jeune encore, mais le site adresse différentes luttes comme :
la lutte des classes et internationalisme, la lutte ...
👀 Notre Gouvernement lance le « Conseil National du Design » Nous en avions entendu parler il y a quelques années mais cette semaine, le Ministère de la Culture et le Ministère de l’Industrie ont annoncé le lancement officiel du Conseil National du Design avec la nomination de sa présidente la startupeuse Sandra Rey qui a créé Glowee, une startup dont l’objet est de mettre la lumière dans la ville via la bioluminescence. Le Conseil National du Design est abrévié « CNDes », peut-être pour se différencier du Centre National de la Danse, du Centre national de documentation, du Conseil National des déchets et bien d’autres acronymes dont la France a ...
Petit manuel d’auto construction des années 70 ! Dans mes archives graphiques, je suis retombé il y a quelques jours, sur ce petit manuel d’auto construction datant des années 70. Loin des considérations actuelles sur l’auto-construction à base de panneaux solaires, de matériaux ultra-techniques, ce manuel est le reflet de la pensée d’une époque : joyeux, solidaire, inventif, artistique et festif !
Au programme
Construction en dômesConstruction en tubesLes zômesLes courbesLes cartons plissésLe tressageLes formes libresLes constructions pour enfantsLes véhicules aménagésLa récupération de matériauxetc.
L’ouvrage est fait à la main, comme un fanzine. L’univers graphique est tantôt punk, tantôt digne d’une bande-dessinée et arbore des esquisses architecturales pas ...

Rogue Amoeba’s Fission Leaves the Mac App Store Fission Audio Editor Leaves the Mac App Store
Paul Kafasis, writing on the Rogue Amoeba blog:
For almost twenty years, we’ve sold our software directly to our customers via our online store. Our fast and secure purchase process has served our customers very well. Since the Mac App Store opened in 2011, we’ve also experimented there. However, despite a decade of feedback from countless developers and users, Apple has made scant few changes and the store remains beset with issues. When you couple the many shortcomings and issues with Apple’s restrictive polices that preclude most of our software from appearing ...

Mojo — An Elegant App for Creating Aesthetic Social Media Stories Short, vertical content such as promos, showcases and even social cards (virtual business cards with social media information) not only helps promoters convey large and rich chunks of information in a short period but also grab a large percentage of young audiences as a bonus. 
Making these sounds easy, but it really isn’t. That’s because a marketing-focused individual wouldn’t necessarily possess the aesthetic skills or the understanding of using high-level animation and editing software for jaw-dropping transitions. Hiring a designer or animator is an option, sure, but it may not be as cost-effective. And this is exactly where Mojo comes ...
Kizie.co is a Minimally Elegant Web-based Twitter Client With hundreds of millions of daily users, Twitter is undoubtedly one of the biggest social networking platforms out there. It’s great for instantly sharing and consuming small yet effective messages called Tweets. Twitter offers its official apps for every major platform out there, along with an API that can be used to build 3rd-party Twitter apps. While the official app is pretty good in itself, it does have its own shortfalls. It’s riddled with ads in the form of “Promoted” tweets that often come in the way. You also have irrelevant “trends” shoved in your face, a general lack of ...

Lucid Lets You Unlock the True Potential of Your Dreams The ability to conquer dreams is something that humans have been exploring throughout history. Dreams aren’t just an abstract series of thoughts, images and sensations that occur in a person’s mind while sleeping, they are also a portal to the subconscious. 
Larry Page invented Google thanks to a dream he had as a 22-year-old in which he somehow managed to download the entire Web and just keep the links. Page is one of the biggest advocates of lucid dreaming, a type of dream in which the dreamer becomes aware that they are dreaming. Page was once quoted saying “when a ...
