    You've never witnessed the change yourself then.

    Depends if they're illustrating a piece of art or a piece of design.

    however the simplification of technology is helping humans

    Look at a toddler who has never used an iPad in their life and one that owns an iPad and tell me that.

    The change in personality, aggression and attention span is horrifying.

    Actual list is just here https://developer.apple.com/design/awards/

    Doesn't really reflect the reality of the iOS world and living with that device, it's mostly just quaint tweet game apps and a few apple pencil tech demos.

    The industry push for trying to get designers to learn react has nothing to with helping designers work better and all to do with getting designers to do the grunt work the engineers whinge about and because designers are often paid less.

    Nothing wrong with wanting to learn to code but just make sure you actually demand a higher salary if you do provide this stuff, don't just become a markup monkey for the engineering team to offload boring work onto.

    Not a word.

    Why is so much writing about our industry so damn embarrassing.

    Don't convince yourself that doing marketing is actually doing activism.

    In the end it's goal is self serving to you and its a bit insulting to the people you claim to be helping that doing your job to benefit your product and you is actually helping them.

    Just so you know, people who don't use dropbox have to dismiss 2 dialogs including a sign up form before even seeing your document and when they finally get to it most of the images are broken.

    Seems Dropbox doesn't really respect your professional work very much if this is how they display it.
