    How many tool directories does the Web need when all of them have 90-100% content overlap to being with?

      Don’t know, as many as everyone wants to bring up with their own flavor? ;)

      Seriously, it’s just a fun project (: I’m aware of all the other directories and they even provide more information and comparisons, yeah! I wanted to design a clean and simple site within a day and the domain was available as well, so I went for it. Let’s see what else we can do with it. Any ideas? (:

    Cool! Now that we got this covered, can we not post another design tools resource link again?

        You're not owed positivity just because you did something. I like the design of the project and it might evolve into something great one day, but in its current state it adds very little value practically speaking. I think it's worth calling out cookie-cutter projects like this one if only to encourage people to think a little bit more outside the (tool)box.

          Maybe this helps to get a better understanding. https://twitter.com/justin_schueler/status/1010199926297333760?s=21

          The idea/intention was not to build something crazily useful or whatever. I just wanted to have a visual pleasing and easy to digest list of the tools I like, built within one day, to challenge myself. It’s just that. And I do not expect anyone to search for any deeper meaning in it.

          I don’t know how the comments above should be constructive or helpful in any way to encourage people to build something. Just something, that, as you wrote yourself, might evolve into something more.

          Apart from that we seem to have different concepts of positivity. I’m not asking for likes or appreciation, but people stating the obvious in a more or less grumpy manner, without considering a different ntention, doesn’t add positivity or help me to improve it.

          This would have been different if I’d put this out as my “great new product” or whatever, telling how awesome it is and what it solves. But it isn’t, it’s just some design-web-fun-creation thingy.

          This whole design community has, to some extend, become stiff and super serious at points where it doesn’t add any value at all.

            That's fair, and I think you have the right attitude of treating it as a fun little side project. Maybe I've been made a bit too cynical by the Product Hunt/startup culture, where every new product is supposed to be this revolutionary new tool, but often just ends up being a slightly trendier version of last year's cool kid,

    Nice man, really clean and clear. What animation tool did you use for the interaction on this project? Really cool https://tparkes.com/projects/benevolentai

    The real name should be trendydigitaldesign.tools :) What about other Adobe apps like Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects or tools like Webflow etc.?

      Webflow is on the list since the beginning and it’s even made with the same haha (:

      I don’t like the other tools. That’s why. It’s a list of tools I like and used or would like to use myself (:
