Independent Brands, I feel there so many out there nowadays. Free from the outside and happily working without a hassle at making their own trademark which is a very good thing. The old days when only big brands were ruling are gone.
We previously share about our recommended UX articles for product designers and we are back with another list of articles about forms, UI minimalism, trends, hover and more. I do love taking the time to read through these articles, there is a lot of great people out there that doesn't mind sharing their knowledge out there so in the end, we can all create/make beautiful experiences together.
It might sound a little cheesy but this is what's everything is about. UX is changing all the time, what's been done 6-12 months ago doesn't necessarily mean that is the best practice or experience for your users. Part of our jobs is to collect the data driven from the users and see what we can improve for the next update or stage. Hope you will find this list useful.
