3 Essential Design Trends, May 2021

Spring is a great time to explore new design trends and find fresh inspiration. Every month we bring you this collection of the most striking new trends we’ve seen online in the previous four weeks. In May’s edition, we explore flat card design, a new kind of funnel, and typography that takes a deep breath and gets risky. Enjoy!

Winter CMS Has Arrived

Forked from October CMS, which has recently abandoned the open-source model, Winter CMS has launched thanks to key contributors reaffirming their commitment to OSS. Expect Winter CMS to diverge from October CMS in the coming months, with new features planned. Because it’s open-source, it’s free to use.

How To Start On Design Systems

Design systems are an integral part of an efficient design workflow, but they remain a mystery for many designers. In this excellent primer, Josh Cusick walks us through the hows and whys of developing a design system and making them a part of our everyday design practice, with practical insights from the UX team at Microsoft.

Adobe Font Recommendations

Adobe has revealed a new feature for its Adobe Fonts service: font recommendations. Now, when browsing typefaces on the site, you’ll see a recommendations tab with a list of fonts similar to the one you’re already viewing. The Adobe Sensei-powered feature is a great way to discover new type options for your designs.

Why You Shouldn’t Trust A Test That Never Fails

Whenever we test an application, we dread the list of bugs and errors. But what’s worse than failing a test is passing it the first time. Jonathan Thompson looks at the myth of the 100% pass, false negatives, a “fail-first” mindset and explains why you shouldn’t trust a test that never fails in this excellent guide to good code testing.

This Is The Average Design Leader’s Salary In 2021

If you’re thinking of renegotiating your salary soon, check out this short post from Brittany Anas that looks at the average design leader’s salary across a range of different industries.
