InVision Studio? Marvel App? UX fundamentals in a new light?
I come here as a Dev/Designer and read 'Front-end!!!!!' and I'm just like:
I wish I could draw.
Hell I'm more Designer than Dev by far and I wish I could draw, I can make some magic happen in illustrator, but pencil on paper... I'm pretty bad. I know a lot of guys sketch logo ideas and what not first, but I'm better off just starting in illustrator and refining ideas as I go.
Heh, I actually started out as an artist in art school. I guess it depends on where you laid your roots. I can't use Illustrator to save my life.
Same, Bachelor of Arts here... I'm a traditional oil-on-stretched-canvas sort of guy, but here I am writing TypeScript all day long... :P
Why don't you learn it then? I bet you couldn't design/dev websites once you stepped out of the cradle so why it is different for drawing?
3D modelling and anything using a 3D space
3D modeling & 3D animation for sure.
animation - fine grained animation of interfaces but also silly animations for fun
Interface animation is what I'm trying to teach myself currently. I used to be a keen Flash animator, but sort of lost the skill and feel the need to get back into motion graphics.
I came here to post the same word. Advanced UI animation, as well es After Effects type animation for use in video. Think commercials and the like.
Never done enough of those.
Gotta say I'm also here to post the same word. UI animations are something I want to develop further but I've only been doing few basics here and there.
Looks like most of us here would rather learn code than design, although maybe that's because all of us here are designers already
I spent most of my day yesterday learning how to animate SVGs with just CSS. Was quite fun and made a animated banner ad. Learned the basics and put something together in one day.
Heh, sounds like me and CSS Grid, although I'm still having trouble.
Yeah I almost started to tackle that yesterday instead of the animation. I talked myself out of it though and told myself I still have a little more time with bootstrap.
Once you get the hang of it you start to realize you can pretty much build an entire foundation with CSS Grid in much less code. It also works like a charm with flexbox.
Would recommend CSS Grid Garden, it's a cool way to reinforce the concepts.
Pretty cool, thanks!
Front-end development. Whether it's production worthy or not.
I would pick up magic tricks. The idea of misdirection and sleight of hand is great foundation to apply it in the dark arts of design.
Hands down, any Front-end languages. And probably worth considering InVision in 2018 as I predict InVision would be huge.
Lately, I've been really fascinated by animation and 3D design. Being a graphic designer and hand lettering artist, adding those two skill set to my arsenal would be really helpful. #Goalsfor2018
I'd love to learn how to create AR/VR/3D type designs, I think there is going to be a huge demand for this type of designer over the next few years. If anyone has any tutorials, articles or anything that's useful for this stuff, comment a link? Thanks!
I can not choose between After Effects and HTML/CSS/JS.
I would like to learn Unity/Unreal to be able create better AR Experiences, seems to be a huge field for me with a lot of research...
