Emoji kitchen, Figma responsive cards, obsessive note-taking, CTA database
Weekly curated resources for designers — thinkers and makers.
Today, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and, more specifically, Machine Learning are pervasive in our daily lives. From Facebook ads to YouTube recommendations; from Siri to Google Assistant; and from automated translation of device notice to marketing personalization tools; AI now deeply permeates both our work and personal lives.

Make me think
- Crediting contributors in design systems →
“Can we recognise design system contributors with a public acknowledgement of their work on a component or pattern? Or can we award individuals a contributor “status”, by naming them in design system documentation, putting their picture in a digital wall of fame, or sending them a sticker?”
- How harmful is social media? →
“There’s a general sense that it’s bad for society — which may be right. But studies offer surprisingly few easy answers.”
