Is that because you designed it?
Because it isn't the best.
No it's not. The comic sans part is (a little) funny, but the screen is not informative enough. Perhaps you could explain how one would import screens from sketch?
I'm not the designer behind it. There were more instructions before this screen, it's just a reminder that I found funny :)
The tree ruins it.
Looking at some comments on this post, this community looks like it’s getting less nicer. C’mon, it’s a joke, people…
Definitely man... People are so mean, that's a reason why people don't share their thoughts in here ):
What happened to "Be Nice. Or Else." ?
It was not enforced, that's what happened.
It's probably a little difficult to enforce. Niceness is subjective. Obviously name calling are easy calls, but what is nice? Mods will have conflicting views, especially when it comes to the sarcasm and critiques. They can try to follow a book, but they'll be inconsistent. Then we will get posts like reddit does "DAE think moderation is fascism incarnated?!" and DN will be all the worse for it. Ideally, we should be enforcing that rule as a community. You perceive someone is being not nice? Don't upvote them.
I don’t believe niceness is subjective… You can identify irony and sarcasm in comments, and that’s not being nice, I believe.
It's true, I've become quite wary about sharing here. People can be very arrogant.
Sure, more Comic Sans jokes! Wow that never gets old.
I'll just leave this here : "People who don't like Comic Sans don't know anything about design" http://www.dezeen.com/2014/11/27/vincent-connare-typography-interview-comic-sans-ms/
I think anyone's allowed to not like comic sans, and if they don't it doesn't mean they don't know anything about design.
You can still respect it's use-case and application in certain situations and not like it aesthetically :-)
I agree though, it's not that funny and would probably benefit from explaining to the user how they would go about importing their sketch files
My opinion means I know nothing about design guys.
It's not the opinion per se, but the trend of talking trash about Comic Sans that's tiring. People who have been in the business for more than a few years have seen this joke done and redone a hundred times.
Dissing Comics Sans is an elitist, designer-only inside joke, and I'd guess usually perpetuated by young designers. It's saying "This thing is immensely popular, nearly ubiquitous, but now I am part of the select group that knows that it actually sucks."
Comic Sans was born in the context of a particular project, a particular set of constraints, deadlines... being able to understand why it is like it is, is already an exercise in undestand real design. It then became immensely popular among the myriad of fonts pre-packed with Windows. If you think about why it did so, there are things to learn about users of an operating system / office suite, their needs and wants. If one wants to consider oneself a good designer, it would be better to think about that, rather than indirectly make fun of your mom or dad or cousin or other non-designer users for liking Comic Sans.
And as for the joke in the app, other products have already done the same thing (can't remember exactly, but some SaaS thing for designers would go full Comics Sans if you expired the trial). There were tumblrs dedicated to changing everything from move titles to book covers to famous logos to Comic Sans.
So if you've never seen that joke before, it probably just made you giggle. If you've seen the other dozens (hundreds?) it just makes you sigh.
I think it's the sensationalist title that is irking people.
May I ask, what application is that? "Generate UIColor category"... that caught my eye! :-)
Damn! I hope they get out of beta soon!
Can send you an invite if you'd like! Say hi on twitter :)
this app looks great! mind if I say hi too? ;)
not really funny though
This cracks me up. Unbelievable.
I found it amusing and even installed the app :D (which was probably the point of this post ;)
At least it's funny...
Zeplin, got it right ! '
ahahahaha n1 !
haha, gave me a giggle :)
