Be nice. Or else.
Applying changes to isolated elements like this creates more problems than it solves. Tweaking styles sporadically will result in a very inconsistent design.
Do you have any plans to integrate a systematic approach at some point? I'd be much more interested if Finch recognised components across pages/platforms.
Great article. I think this is an artefact of designers thinking desktop-first for so long even after responsive design gathered steam.
A lot of designers who spend a lot of time working on mobile projects are primarily working with native apps, so they don't often have to deal with multiple layouts for the same content often.
Another probable reason is the added development complexity. Managing multiple layouts for a piece of content can get messy, especially when dealing with sliders and similar components.
It's definitely something I think we should all be handling better though, thanks for sharing!
I'm in the middle of writing a whopper post on how to effectively design, build and maintain a design system. So stay tuned, hopefully I can help someone a little!
Offering Framer's level of limitless control is insanely complex with a GUI. To allow GUI input, it's almost necessary to give up some freedom. It's just a really difficult problem to solve, one that I've worked on for years.
The guys at Framer are obviously working on it and they're closing the gap nicely imo. The next few years will be interesting.
Yeah, I felt the same. The timing and musical cues are great and I think the content was on point but the slides are just too quick. I'd have watched another 15 seconds maybe.
Sorry for posting this twice. DN doesn't redirect or show a success message after the new story form submits, so it's impossible to know whether the form submitted or failed.
They embed the web font.
Damn, Office Code is nice! Love the page load animation too.
Well yeah I get that it's to appease beginners, it's just that your solution is so needlessly complex and as Alex noted - much more complex than the relatively simple few lines of JS required.
Ultimately, it's just bad code and I don't like encouraging beginners down this path. I think it would be great if the article came with a very basic JS solution at the bottom, which might encourage beginners to give it a try.
