    Very cool! Nice to see traditional graphic design styles finally making their way into UI design now that the tech has caught up.

    I hire designers from many parts of the world as part of a highly demanding remote studio. I'm curious, in general:

    1. Do designers in our community feel prejudiced against during the hiring process?
    2. Is this a North American issue or a worldwide issue?
    3. Can designers share experiences of prejudice during the hiring process so that we can learn from them?

    Additionally, if there are any talented designers out there who feel prejudiced against and are having difficulties entering the marketplace because of this issue, please send me your resume.

    Dribbble has a way of attracting the same style of designs for the most part, I feel like I'm watching a site full of people copying each other.

    I use Illustrator still. I'm slowly moving to Figma, mainly because of the vector capabilities. All of these new apps, Sketch, XD etc. they're good for laying out websites, but they're not good for actually designing a website, like originating a creative design. They're just not as powerful as Illustrator is.

    Google Photos is the best.

    All you need to do is setup a second "business" account on your personal account which lets you have a second completely separate Google Photos library. The interface is fast, easy use and to find stuff and you can upload as many screenshots as you like fore free, forever.

    Basically I screenshot everything I like and throw it into Google Photos. You can create albums to categorise, if you're into that, but I find it a waste of time as it's impossible to upkeep. I usually only reference the last month or two worth of saved stuff and move on anyways.

    Adobe has made some spectacularly bad updates lately. In Illustrator they introduced an "Actual Size" zoom feature. It shows the actual size of the design on screen for print. Then the made cmd+1 be shortcut be "Actual Size"... so basically for anyone that designs for screen in Illustrator, there was no way to view 100% pixel size anymore. It was the dumbest thing I've ever seen Adobe do. Literally made the app unusable for anyone designing on screen.

    When they first released it I noticed layout discrepancies between browsers so I pretty much wrote it off immediately.

    Craft to me has always looked like the best CMS out there. The CMS interface is as useable or better than WP and the framework structure is far superior to any other CMS.
