Reading this great article about "UX Trends for 2019" (slightly clickbait title: it's less trends and more bigger ethical questions around how the industry is changing).

The suggested guidelines for creating 'calm tech' really caught my attention as something I'd love to see more of.

I'm completely in love with this article by a Shopify illustrator about how companies handle diversity in their visualities.

Points tackled include:
* You can't just make everyone purple and call it diverse
* It's not just diversifying job roles, but actions. Who's pointing at the whiteboard? Who's explaining? Who's giving objects?
* Body language. Who's looking away? Who's making eye contact?
* How many of these problems start with a design team that's not diverse

@mcread It's not an app unfortunately, it's a UI demo. The source is in the toot. :blobcat:

@emaree this is extremely cute and a great idea -- and I say this as someone who has recently discovered an irrational fear of yetis.

@tsia I saw that! It's mega cute, I love the 'show password' peek. :D

@emaree that's fuckin' ingenious. Kudos to whoever designed / implemented that!

@emaree so cute!

It reminds me of remembear, where if you give the wrong password multiple times the bear starts sweating twitter.com/_AlanCurran/status

@emaree you are kidding me i am so overjoyed by this i am going to watch it so many times

@emaree is this not a simple google Material Design css/js ?

@seeh defiiiinitely not. Material Design offers nothing like this out of the box.

Perhaps we've had a misunderstanding. The impressive part of the UI is the reactive animation responding to the user's input. I would agree that the input boxes themselves are standard Material Design.
