There is no blacklist, but I think we should consider implementing one to get rid of these "blacklist" conspiracy theory threads. There is a search bug that manifests itself as a 404. It happens for a bunch of search terms. We'll fix it.
It's not blacklisted, it's a bug.
They've all been slapped off the front page.
There are a number of moderators, in addition to LayerVault, who keep things nice here. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll review your account. Also: Please don't register multiple accounts. That's a fast-track to IP banning.
That ratio would most certainly be allowed from an outsider. In fact, in the past, that has been the quickest way to become a moderator. Matt keeps things active when he has time, and usually his posts are non-controversial stories that are between 2hrs and 24hrs old. If you want more perspectiv...
That's a lot of illustration. It's all so great. My favorite:
Congrats, and nice marketing site. It would be helpful if there was a quick way to open an example portfolio — I bet it would do wonders for your conversion.
Next time: Post the app's site link, not the product hunt page.
Adobe is far from perfect, but this is just an unnecessarily cruel blog.
Ok, this concludes today's small town internet drama. There's plenty more happening in design today than email spam. I'm taking this thread off the front page.
Yes — I've received a number of emails about this... Not very happy about it.
Eric Meyer lost his daughter, Rebecca, very recently. If you click on the link in the header, it'll take you to Jeffrey Zeldman's post about #663399Becca. I thought it would be nice to change Designer News from Blue to Purple for the next day or two in solidarity.
Looks like Gill Sans.
Yup. Also this was posted a few days ago.
MG Siegler, another one for your bookmarks: Uber's $18 bn valuation is just another fantasy marketed by Silicon Valley
I wish I had a use for this.
Both sites were designed by the same shop.
This site was designed by the people at Big Human. They're also responsible for the new Time site and the new Fortune site.
Nice stuff. Like the little touches, like when photos fade in and the photoset icon animation. The photo masonry grid causes my browser to momentarily seize up each time a photo is loaded up, but only when viewing it on my retina screen.
Fun. Ok. We'll award a color to the most upvoted avatar.
Apple's Comic Relief
Holy crap, this is awesome.
Nah. Post away. The mods will clean it up.
Pretty cool. Did you order a custom stamp?
We see everything. We enforce the "Or else" written in the footer and most discourse on DN is civil as a result. People tend to be needlessly aggressive on the internet when in person they're perfectly nice. That's why we require full names and credentials and it helps. This i...
Caution: Anything you read here is going to be wrong.
This tumblr is good enough that it deserves a double post :)
"Nothing to see here. Move along"
Welcome! Thanks again for doing an AMA. Two questions: How long did it take you to start feeling like you were successful as a freelancer? Are there any kinds of projects/companies you really want to work on/with but haven't had a chance to?
What the hell?
Great work! Eager to see what you have planned next.
How much of that 100GB are you using?
What's the size of your Dropbox/Box/whatever folder right now and what are you paying?
Looks like they started supporting preview-less syncing of Sketch files recently, but a quick twitter search reveals that it's still a bit buggy.
Neither does Dropbox. LayerVault does, though :)
I'm impressed. Where are you going with this?
Have you checked out seamless or grubhub?
Cool. Reminded me of Designer News from earlier last year.
The animation was done by Skip Hursh (we've linked to him before in the weekly newsletter): skiphursh.com
This is my kind of redesign.
Interesting. There's a germ of an idea there.
Yeah, good catch. The illustration follows their styleguide well enough that it's really confusing at first.
Took me a few reads before it occurred to me that this was a hoax. It's completely free, you pay with your data. The more Google products you use, the higher your insurance payout will be in case of data misuse through secret service or private criminals. Your policy will be automatically o...
It's a really interesting analysis that we're chatting about internally. Despite receiving a bunch of votes, the posts seemed to be much less popular in traffic-wise than other content. The content itself was great, but it received such a small fraction of total daily clicks that it may...
Lots of respect for Podio. There are lots of players in the CRM/project management space, but they manage to stand out as a higher quality product. That's hard.
We don't discuss future releases, let alone publish a roadmap. InDesign is a tricky format and we haven't yet found a preview generation solution that we're happy with. I'll share this thread with our team, but in the future please email support instead of posting to DN.
Are you guys using PSD.rb?
This has to be a joke?
Agree with Vlad about the hidden menu. You've got to use that thing wisely, and I don't think this is the right use case for it. You have some solid work and I'd think that you'd want to showcase it up front. I bet you could find a way to make that side menu work, though, withou...
Nice presentation and you've got some nice work. Not bad.
I'm into it. It's good to make yourself uncomfortable. Plus, you shouldn't have to be a hipster to appreciate this stuff and I bet with the right project, you'd die over how awesome the work is. I mean, it's easy to appreciate: Just like Paul Rand is easy to appreciate: ...
It looks like you've made some nice improvements. What are your plans for this thing?
http://www.skiphursh.com/ is NY based too
Where are you seeing it?
That's part of our Mixpanel analytics code. Your email isn't visible to others.
Not just yet. Soon.
A user who was needlessly antagonistic was banned. There are guidelines and you should review them. Threads about sensitive topics are gonna happen. If you're a jerk to others, you're done.
This looks really fantastic Mathias. Congrats on what looks like a highly polished service.
Are you trolling?
Whatever you want Joe. It's your app.
No, this is not spec work. You design an app screen and if we like it, we'll give you a book that will help you bring it to life. The app and the design is yours.
Gave it a spin and it's quite nice. Two thumbs up.
Holy crap. Nice work Tyler.
Try again after the downtime.
Looks much improved and shows a lot of restraint. Great type choice. I can imagine using this during the work-day. The new UI is nice enough that the Lobster-set Songza logo now looks dated.
Cool it. Michiel's site has looked like this for almost a year.
What a nightmare.
A user went back and edited/removed all of his past comments. It caused a lot of "reply" notifications to get fired. I got a few myself.
Nice work, Bryan.
I love it.
Develop your own style. Avoid thinking about aesthetics until you need to. Know when you're rationalizing. Avoid design porn and idolatry of pretty things. Follow fewer designers on twitter and unfollow ones with too many opinions — in fact, unfollow anyone who posts more than once every few ...
It's not clearly a bad idea. It's the data that counts. Hiding navigation behind a menu is very effective in steering visitors to the right places, driving conversion where needed. Most designers simply don't like it and rationalize that it's bad UX. Even worse — bad designers...
The bug is that you discovered that subdomain. It's for internal API traffic only. We're working on making sure that api-news.layervault isn't ever given as a response URL.
We killed the time with Counter-Strike matches amongst our team. Not the best use of time in retrospect (obviously), but part of the hoopla from that period. In related news, there is a LayerVault counterstrike-go server that we sometimes use on Fridays: 188.8.131.52:27015. Password is "...
Thanks Cameron! Excited to have you doing an AMA. I've got a few of my own: How long did it take you to go full-time on Authentic Jobs? When did you make the jump? Did you guys ever take funding? I have the impression that you have been bootstrapped from day 1. Want to share some of your t...
We need an avatar color for "Ya blew it."
Some designers get flack for redesigns. Some don't. It's harder to criticize a redesign when it's thoroughly researched like the linked Ticketmaster work. It's less hard when everything is aesthetics based. That doesn't detract from the achievement of taking something and ma...
Very attractive and overall a nice concept. Trying to incorporate the golden ratio in your layout makes for a challenging design problem. I don't understand the value of using it over a standard, more predictable grid.
I use FontExplorer X Pro. It's fantastic.
Not sure I understand. Can you elaborate on what you mean?
Just use delivery with a custom domain and password protect your presentations. Done. Who's next?
Asked the LayerVault crew and no one has any clue. One of the other mods may have deleted it if they thought it was a duplicate.
Killing it as always.
Between your MOTD and this thread, I can't tell if you're trolling.
I apologize. It's late on Saturday night and I'm not being nice. Let me give you a real answer. A 'GitHub' for designers is a loaded statement — they are much more than simple git repo hosting. LayerVault covers some of those bases (for designers). It may be what you're loo...
Hey, that's a pretty good idea.
I opened a new browser so that you folks couldn't see secret stuff.
Ding ding ding.

Matt's learning the DN moderation ropes, helping to keep the content here good, and working on some new top-secret projects. Welcome him to the team!
Awesome job, Nathan. You guys are killing it.
That crossed my mind. It would be a lot of fun.
This one's almost 10 years old.
Go for it. Self-promotion is fine. If it's worthy of attention, it'll bubble up to the front page.
Porn is a highly requested feature and we have put it on our roadmap.
LayerVault works on top of Dropbox. Match made in heaven.
I'm excited that I get to use this GIF again.
I wonder what the conversion is like.
This is brilliant.
This is not the place.
Nope. I don't ask that anyone work long hours.
Exactly. My 80+ hours a week are sustainable. But I'm also not chained to a desk or cranking out TPS reports.
Here's what I've learned: The smartest guys who work the hardest win. If 40 hours is your limit, that's fine. But if you're a founder who buys into the fantasy that fewer than 40 hours makes you more productive, I hope you've got a company I'm competing against.
There's also Geisha and thenews.im as shown in the mockup.
No, you're not the only one — this is something I want too. We're going to add this.
Insanely brilliant? Hopefully insanely wealthy.
You're in luck.
Agree with the sentiment here. I'm happy to see that this story is generating the kind of response I was expecting from DN.
It sounds like you're familiar with how fragile layer comps tend to be. I try to hold of setting them until near the end of a mockup, and even then I religiously update my comp as I continue to work. I've found that when a layer comp warns you that it's broken, it's still just f...
Someone should convince Ben Pieratt to start this up again.
It's an interesting concept that's worth exploring. That said, I'd never let it see the light of day :) In reality, it would unusable unless you implemented hairy logic. Having to continuously move your mouse to read a menu or know where to point sounds like a UX disaster.
"The site is running a slow bc of traffic from a link on Designer News - working on it! #goodproblems" - @CapptivateCo https://twitter.com/CapptivateCo/status/424975641679642626
Intriguing but I wish this landing page had a little more meat.
Welcome to DN, Derek.
Nice work Meng. It looks like the app are up a little too much battery. Otherwise, very cool.
Good tip. I use aaa for my email address. It's slightly easier/quicker than the example you're showing.
Ditto on the swatches.
It's been done but this is still pretty awesome.
Moderator downvoting is what HN does? I don't think that's true. I have the ability to downvote on HN and I'm definitely no moderator. You mentioned in the past that you have (or you have threatened) to sink posts. Does that currently occur, and if so, how often? I find myself ...
Is it to give the community the ability to "shame" out bad posts or comments? No. We had a very long debate about whether to release downvotes today. The decision was to give it to a few people and see what they'd do. We never released the site with the reddit-style upvote &...
It's currently something we're testing and have rolled out to just a handful of users. It's not fully cooked yet. I actually find that the site works well without downvotes. We're growing quite quickly and, with registration being open between 12 and 1PM, I want to be sure that w...
Thanks for doing the AMA Justin. I'll kick things off with a few questions: Tell us about the early days at pinterest. What were they like? How has the design process (and perhaps culture) over there changed? What's the design process over there now? What types of designers does Pintere...
We also have no formal hand off process or project management software, save for the things Kelly mentioned above. Designers and developers sit together in a campfire chat room based around a feature or project (we took this idea from you guys at GH) and there's a blurry line between design...
Alasdair, you've got new color.
Fantastic work. Now we just need to get an API out.
"Are you religiously affiliated?" No. We use science, facts, and personal accounts to speak about the harmful effects of pornography. We do not affiliate with any religion nor we do have a moral agenda. We allow others the freedom to apply their own belief system to the topic of pornog...
Maybe not! Shoot me an email.
They'd also be writing content and teaching design, which makes it even harder to define.
Sure. What would you call the job role?
It's very fancy.
Retired badges is a great idea. I'll make a note to add a section.
The longshadow and flat badges were mean ones.
This is exactly right. Extensions have very poor adoption, which is why nearly every extension-based product invariably fails or moves into other vehicles of delivery.
That part is the best part.
We used to have a flat badge for this very thing.
Show DN: would probably get you more clicks.
Aw yeah. Thanks.
Very blue. I like it a lot.
I hate how "Designer News" gets shortened. Gross.
The site was blogspam so I replaced the URL with the YT video.
I found it interesting. I think most designers will as well... unless your definition of designer does not extend beyond a person who makes pretty pictures. Designers who are so specialized that this post is beyond their understanding will eventually be all but extinct. There's no point in b...
Why wouldn't it be?
The article is dated but I was surprised to find a unit that I'd never heard of. Pretty cool.
This may be a good reference for you: Butterick's Practical Typography and Typography in Ten Minutes As for big body text, the answer will always depend on the font and context. Once you define a few variables, your choice in font-size is rather limited. You can find a solution without relyi...
This is very cool. A good start to something that could be super useful. I noticed, btw, that hitting tab when setting an attribute value clears the value and removes focus from the attribute. It would be great if hitting tab saved, created a new attribute, and gave it focus.
Or you can just use imgix.
The Lapka site and video are very attractive, but I have a hard time understanding what their product does or who it's for. Perhaps I'm not in their target audience. It appears to be a set of sensors? But for what and whom?
Looks really solid. Great work Zoltan.
Serious domain. Awesome video. I will be shelling out the $19.
We're going to allow clients to leave feedback in Presentations at some point. You're right — we should do a better job of educating users about sharing options. Until then, here are the options for sharing: Revision links : Shares an individual save without the context of a visual tim...
Really interesting to see behind the scenes and a cool way to do a case study.
Sneaky. You guys are all getting too sneaky.
Tab Closed; Didn't Read.

This is the next edition of our AMA series. Our last one was really fun and Wilson was nice enough to agree to do one for us. I'll start off : What did you work on at Facebook? What are they doing with all of those designers? How do you feel about the direction Rdio's design is going i...

An effective spam filter could be a big obstacle too. I wonder whether you guys plan on attacking that problem or just delegating it to the user's email provider (Gmail, whoever). Still, I'd give this client a shot. Excited to see what you guys release.
This thread turned out better than expected.
Congrats Justin. Awesome work as usual.
Gorgeous, as expected. It's amazing to see a software company start creating hardware.
I bet this could be done with even fewer elements. Someone should fork it on codepen and try.
A person finding this one card could totally wreak havoc on your personal/business finances. It doesn't make me feel safe to visit the about page and see a bunch of very young-looking guys wearing sunglasses. It makes me think "they don't take this seriously enough." I had my c...
We just had a similar conversation over lunch. We'll make this happen for the next AMA.
Seconded. Edit: Thirded.
This is the first experiment in what I hope to be a series of AMAs on DN with notable designers. I'll start with a few questions: How does your team work together? Are all the designers over there also developers? and How do you guys decide what to work on over there? one more: You seem...
What a simple but fantastic video.
The MOTD is not intended to be serious, or inspirational, or useful. If it's used that way, great. If not, that's fine too. It is supposed to be chaotic. Locking is no fun for anyone, especially because most of the stuff written there has very little value most of the time.
It's a cache issue. We'll fix it.
Fantastic. Who's that handsome guy with the black and white profile photo? :)
There is no official DN twitter account.
Very interesting concept. To give some contrast, using H&FJ's cloud typography requires that you pay in full for a license to a limited number of typefaces. In the process of trying to find the right one for DN, I burned through several licenses and had to continue buying new ones until...
It's just an oversight and a bad habit. I usually find that the cursor hover state is enough. I'm deploying some css tweaks in a bit. This will be one of them.
Derailing this thread to say that the Cramera video is awesome. I watched it 4 times in a row.
Mine too D:
Does LV have admins ready to go to weed out all the "check out my new app" posts? We've added a good number of mods over the last few months. Also, I'd love to see "Check out my new app" posts. There are too few apps for designers, and too few ways to promote them ...
Not really. We did it once every month or two for a little while.
I've been reluctant to have downvote implemented. My fear is that members would use it much more often than upvote. I would much rather see people upvoting things they do like. Bad posts won't end up on the front page if you ignore them (as in, don't leave comments about how dumb t...
Hell no. It's a way for us to give some attention to people/things in the design world that we like. It's not a sponsored placement.
It may or may not show up soon.
My feeling about this is that most users would flip out if we did this, even if it was more convenient. See the Diggbar for example.
Still an interesting concept though.
I doubt that's the client. That's Keenan Cummings, who's probably relatively good friends with Ben.
I'm cool with H1s. Do your thing.
I should adjust those headline sizes.
What’s that spike in traffic? Internet drama. The graph shows traffic since January 1, 2013. That spike must be around week 10.
Imagine someone posts something to DN, before it gets filtered it actually will be 'shown' at the top with premium real estate to a small portion of the users. Those users that click on that and come back to that page could be then asked to sort it by importance levels or put it into som...
This is what the first 10 pages look like. However, a significant number of visitors make it beyond page 10. In fact, in the last 30 days, a number people seem to be exploring beyond page 30. We see plenty of traffic beyond page 50, but I'm convinced the visits are made up of bots and pag...
Two missing points from this. First, many of these companies do believe they're creating something with a great experience. Second, the time it takes to approve medical devices, depending on their purpose, is not attractive to most design or engineering talent. There is brain drain, sadly.
It appears to have come a long way.
Is this satire?

Congrats gentlemen. Great work.
It works. Are you sure you read the instructions.?
You can earn colors by reaching various karma levels, linking your LayerVault account, or attending meetups.
Yours is great. Noticed it in another thread. Edit: Mine is every pixel color I have, repeated over and over.
Nice pixel avatar!
I have no idea how you achieve that splash art, but it looks complex as hell. Also, this would have been easier to follow in a Delivery :)
I'm hoping we can behave ourselves. IMG embeds aren't intended exclusively for GIFs. If that's what it turns into, we can rethink it.
While we're on the topic of new things... Last week I secretly added a way to collapse threads by clicking a person's pixel avatar.
It's currently max-width'ed to the wrapping DIV's width. If things get nuts, we'll figure it out.
Here come the gifs1. I hope we don't end up regretting the image embed. 1: Shh.
Allan and I couldn't sleep, so we decided to add Markdown support to both post content and comments on DN. It looks like it works. This should be nice.
Our very own Andrew McCarthy has the same gripe.
Looking into it.
They're coming back.
Chihad, the width of the column was intentionally reduced to control line length and increase readability. Increase the column width would mean increasing the type to the aforementioned clown-size. A nice reference for you: practicaltypography.com/typography-in-ten-minutes.html
Thanks for the feedback everyone. I'm taking it all in. Some improvements have already been made, others will come over the next day or two. The goal wasn't to flex some design muscles. As stated in the original post, you're going to see a lot of small iteration while we try to get t...
Nice. Everything going according to plan. Now we're going to sign you up for a subscription to Cat Fancy.
Noted. In the future, please use the feature request link in the footer. https://news.layervault.com/stories/126-feature-requests-lets-talk-about-designer-news
Yes, we pay attention and this list helps prioritize things that we're working on.
Such a bad decision.
They do not. They will soon.
Fantastic typeface and beautiful website... but the scrolling ruins the experience. We need to stage an intervention. Friends, I think it's time that we had a talk. It's about your abuse of scroll behavior. Taking over page scrolling only works against you. It doesn't enhance the e...

I find this to be pretty interesting, even though the supplies to be all wrong :) A few simple but super-low mm pencils, a high quality eraser, and a large format notebook. That's all. No case, no pens or markers.
Seriously with the title? Edit: fixed
I've seen some nice work done with Neuzeit S (http://www.linotype.com/1268/neuzeits-family.html) at http://bench.co
You could build that yourself with our RSS feed. We don't own or control the handful of twitter bots that tweet out.
This is my favorite comment in the history of Designer News.
That's pretty much what it's for.
I'd consider Reddit's design subreddit something of a ghetto in the design community. It's definitely interesting to see their points of view, however out of touch.
This happens to me a daily. I've learned to zoom in before transforming something.
What's with all these angled mockups!?
I've been using a custom set of Photoshop actions to construct a grid and set up a light structure with Layer Groups. I've been thinking about cleaning them up and publishing them. Any interest in this?
This is the second time someone has posted a flipboard to DN. These things are unusable. Stop it.
Huh. That's a great observation.
Nice work Sacha.
In the late 90s and early 2000s, Jacob Nielsen was the butt of all design-related jokes. His position on Flash was unfashionable and seen as a threat to those of us creating hot animated garbage. Flash was intoxicating and we were blind to its poor usability. It turns out, Nielsen was right.
Interesting idea. I'd use this in my own work if it generated SASS.
No amount of amenities can be a bigger draw than quiet, light, and ample space between coworkers.
Wow, very nice.

Here's the reality. Ready? It's going to be harsh. You're likely not "really really good" at what you do. It's almost a certainty. There are very few people who are great. It gets worse. Great companies don't want you. Feeling warm and fuzzy isn't going to help...
Who is the "we" you're referring to? The relationships between publications, startups, and investors is a delicate thing that happens entirely behind the scenes. It has little to do with you, the reader or the bootstrapped founder... and it's no secret. Having seen/had access t...
I haven't had to name a file something-final.psd in quite some time. Seems archaic now.
This puzzles me as well...
Because anonymity is anathema to civil discourse.
We just fixed that. It shouldn't happen anymore.
Wait, DONDA is a real thing?
Yes, definitely. That'll be the next thing.
We see the feature requests in the aforementioned thread. Posting new threads is usually not an effective way to get us to implement stuff :)
I'll fix it.
Jacob, that's just not how you address people here. Tone it down, please.
It's hard, from a distance, to tell what came first. Also, it's not supposed to be a shadow, it's supposed to be somewhat isometric.
So good. You win.
I'm not a fan of this approach, but people's ideal process tends to be somewhat personal. Iterating on design is more than just tweaking CSS and HTML, and (from having built a product that records these things) a design can undergo thousands of revisions before it's ready to be built....
In love with this work. Great find.
I'm really disappointed this was even posted here.
It would be too vain to think that the DN in the corner of this page has anything to do with this nonsense, but... come on. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u613pJSLcfk
You should be using a small but simple contract for any freelance work you do. One term of that contract typically includes a termination fee. I've seen up to 30% of the quoted total. Look here as a starting point for future work: http://www.docracy.com/doc/showalluserdocs?sortBy=3&page=...
Vine is already on Android....
Jessica Hische is way too talented.
If we don't rake in enough money, we're going to start selling colors on pixel avatars. $1 for red, green, and blue pixels. $50 for silver pixels $100 for gold pixels. Then it's on to charging per character for comments.
Guh. So good. Really impressed with the art direction.
I still don't trust it.
Nice pixel avatar.
Quora's spartan design has always appealed to me. Rebecca Cox and her team is terrifically talented. Minus a few very minor tweaks I'd make, the visual design seems very appropriate. The data-ink ratio is low and it feels dense without being intimidating.
What were you planning on doing with dinnerwithapornographer.com?
Something must have broken. We were displaying errors at some point.
http://zachklein.com/ http://www.scottbelsky.com/ http://www.denniscrowley.com/ http://www.chrismaguire.com/
A++ would watch again
Just reminding everyone to be civil. Carry on.
This looks great. Google's approach to product design is really impressive lately.
This is quite different from LayerVault, but even if it weren't we wouldn't take offense.
This is great. Makes me think we should put an icon gallery in the footer.
I bet if you emailed them, they'd give you a student discount :)
I love the price.
Get it together.
That's awesome. Your file page will update in realtime too. The combo will be pretty cool to watch.
CK — The telescope/Meteor thing won't work given the stuff we're planning on doing with DN, but there's a chance you'll be able to contribute to the design stuff soon :)
A little bit.
Designers truly live in the dark ages. That we should be discussing our own unique naming conventions and backwards ways of organizing files is pretty damning of the ecosystem.
Thanks. I'm back and working on the front page now.
Ha! We're heading to lunch. Work will resume in 45 minutes.
I'm trying something totally different now with the header :)
I'm going to work on Designer News out in the open today. I have some initial sketches of what I'd like to do, but I'm not sure where this will go. Ryan and Kelly wrote some great features that need to be exposed correctly, so I'm going to experiment with a different direction ...
The only bubble this article convinces me of is the "startup advice bubble."
I'm sure there may be some lurkers who will take you up on your offer, but you should consider also heading to http://collabfinder.com/ to see if you can join some folks on their projects.
I'm a little shocked that the pooping pixel pigeon was so poorly received. Tough crowd.
Beautiful site and evidently a beautiful app.
It's not deleted. A few articles from over a day ago were sunk.
This reminds me of a Quora answer I wrote once: http://www.quora.com/What-will-web-4-0-look-like
I want to go on record: I like the nod to LayerVault, intended or not. Some of the design decisions are questionable, but I'm sure they'll figure it out. The Wistia folks are smart.
I like it. The full-width video at the top of the page adds the right amount of drama to the page.
Aaron Draplin is great and this video is great.
I was just complaining about how poorly Helvetica Neue renders yesterday. I'm finding that Helvetica Neue gets hinted strangely at 12px on non-retina displays. My solution was to dial up the font size, but I'd be interested to see examples of great typefaces for user interfaces. Anyone ha...
The site design is nice, but I find it interesting that they reveal how many companies they work with. 928 companies isn't all that much and it's a number I'd think Mixpanel would want to keep close to the chest. Christian — do you work at Mixpanel? Is that information you guys just...
That's my take.
This doesn't belong here.
Let's keep this place as free from Internet drama as possible. It's toxic. I'm sinking this post.
The Flat UI Kit wasn't released by LayerVault.
Yes. That photo exists.
Holy crap what a wonderful extension. Congrats on creating the first browse extension I've ever installed. Great site as well.
This is not official, obviously :)
I actually think the guys at Digg are one of the few would could do this correctly.
http://dribbble.com/EricRMortensen http://work.mabu.dk/ http://dribbble.com/alexpenny http://alexlikesdesign.com/ http://dribbble.com/bobbymckenna Ben, your work is some of my favorite as well.
Where is everyone taking their stuff?
Derision is not acceptable... unless it's me calling you out :) By all means, discuss design at a high level. In a thread where I ask for 5 links from your favorite dribbble profiles, let's not get heated that dribbble doesn't encompass the entire design world. Most threads in the w...
Either post designers you're following on dribbble or don't. But don't post in a thread being a melodramatic ass. That's not acceptable here.
Don't be a jerk.
Not bad, Cat.
I'll sink stuff that isn't high quality and still hits the homepage. If you really want to see good stuff float and bad stuff sink, start posting and upvoting more.
I can't believe what I just watched.
No disagreements there.
I think you're right about that.
That's just about right. Boatloads of features aren't likely any time soon.
Interesting... We'll look.
Thanks for asking, Connor. I tend to sink posts that have been around longer than 24 hours. Staleness is a concern. The volume of upvotes/posts/comments is low, so things are constantly being sunk to let other good stuff make it to the front page. If a post looks like it still has legs after be...
This might be the first time I'm actually going to be paying attention to a Google IO conference. I bet I'm not the only one.
When you have customers who need help and a troll jumping into chat to cause chaos, I think kicking is more than appropriate.
This is amazing.
I kicked that person from chat because the LayerVault Support Chat is not a place to have a discussion about this — it's for customers trying to get help. I removed the post because a having a conversation with the public about this isn't the right way to handle it. Probably not the best...
Looks like the pitchforks are out over on HN. It was pretty straightforward. Our reaction was "Cool, a flat UI theme" to "Wait, this looks familiar" to "Wait, are those our illustrations?". I contacted the designmodo people over email, because that's the right ...
Too accurate. Also fun.
This is an amazingly cool little service.
Might be neat to do a DN shirt and/or LV shirt. Any interest?
We just released LayerVault for iOS, which does this very thing.
What should it be?
Black tie optional
New Yorkers, come hang out with us next Thursday.
You guys realize that commenting on this post to complain makes it bubble to the front page, right? If you don't want to see it on the front page, might be best to just let it sink.
Stop being a troll please. That's not acceptable here.
We can do a few nice things in a native version that we can't with a web version. It'll be a better experience for those who have iOS devices. It was fun to design the app and it'll be fun to develop. Responsive design is a fine technique but I don't see it as a panacea for mobi...
No, just an iOS version probably.
We'll do it because we can make it a better experience when it's native. We also do it because it's more fun for us. A responsive version of DN would just be a crappier version of it. There's no way around that without a lot of extra work. I'd rather put the extra work into ...
This looks useful but... http://i.qkme.me/3r2sbu.jpg
Everyone take it easy. Bobby, behave yourself. I'm sinking this post.
Pretty impressive. With this thing and Google Glass, you'll be indistinguishable from a crazy person when you walk down the street :)
I need to redesign designer news now :)
The most exciting thing to come out of Google in recent memory. What an exciting product. I hope it succeeds in making technology more invisible and human.
+1 for typer.js
Really weird. Never seen that happen before... Email support to hop into support chat - http://support.layervault.com
Taurean, can I just compliment you really quickly on your avatar? :)
Sorry we broke your visualization. It's a deleted a user :(
Not a new article, but something worth reading nonetheless.
I'm always excited to see anything that iA does. Their work is honest and always top notch. They deserve praise for clear thinking and great execution. Something I try to do with my own work is create a sense of drama and poetry. My only criticism of the new site is that it lacks a little ...
This guy is awesome. Jealousy inducing talent.
We show a warning that says something like "This was posted 8 hours ago, are you sure?" when you're about to post a duplicate. What we should be doing is disabling your ability to post if you hit "Yes" when prompted with the above message :)
My avocado and I have yet to debut a minimalist weather app but we're still working on a todo app :)
I'm sinking this post. Every and any post henceforth on this topic, on how played-out this topic is, or on the death of this topic, will be auto-sunk. We've all had more than enough.
Sidebar is wonderful. I really want both sites to coexist. There are plenty of other shitty link lists and forums out there and too few good ones. I sincerely hope that Sidebar sticks around, and I hope that DN gets large enough to be able to drive a lot of traffic there (and hopefully visa ver...
I've heard awesome things about XOXO. Brooklyn Beta in NY is great but it's unclear whether it'll return. SXSW isn't much of a creative conference, more of a giant party for the technology industry. I haven't heard how FOWD is, but there's that too.
More monitors = more better. I'm proud of my dual-thunderbold + retina setup. Oozing with productivity: http://i.imgur.com/nA0Ocxw.jpg
Designers and developers everywhere: http://i127.photobucket.com/albums/p138/shadow_qween/Gifs/yus.gif
I love it when they're used appropriately. In our case (on layervault.com/tour) it's used to show the Duplo version of a Lego interface. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't show the actual interface, but as a way to introduce the user to concepts, I really like it.
I agree with everything but I'd nitpick the value he places on ideas and execution :) A good idea should be worth 1, not 10. A so-so idea should be worth 0.1 and a weak idea 0.01. Brilliant execution should have a higher dollar value too.
This alistapart post and the demo from yesterday about face proximity have me thinking about really interesting mobile interfaces. We're definitely still in the early days of product design.
We definitely need a gallery.
Stop posting crap.
I changed mine because I saw yours. Now neither of us has it.
Woah. Nice icon.
I'm really impressed with this. Great work.
Not really. It's pretty sensible to create a service that does just one thing well. People with little perspective or experience will write it off as "just a feature" that will disappear once the larger player duplicates it, or enters the market. This was a pretty common reaction a...
They're secret, but since this post will eventually sink, I'll reveal them here: Dribbble, Apple, Discussion threads, Type/Font, CSS, Ask DN, Show DN, Site Design.
Yours is the best so far.
I'll fix it.
Crazy enough to break the layout of Designer News.
Interesting. I'd love to see some too.
Sounds like the waiting list needs a time estimate. Big numbers are scary.
I'm tracking a handful of metrics associated with PR. Every feature and its various event states are wired to be tracked by Google Analytics. We'll be watching for the change in things you might expect — page views, time on page, and feature usage. Were I more of a Google Analytics ninj...
I'm so confused. Who? What?
Yeah — That's a reasonable suggestion.
Not very long at all. A follow-up would be excellent, especially once we implement it across most of our features.
Jonas - Consistency is obviously required throughout the process, otherwise you're just going to create confusion. You should note that this isn't just about making the experience better for a pro user. It's also about encouraging the right kind of behavior. Our thinking is this: So...
My guess: by hand.
I agree with you. SVG support isn't perfect across browsers (Firefox also occasionally shits the bed) but it's way easier to maintain than icon fonts.

You're using the word "deserve" is a little too lightly. My position is this: you're not entitled to anything unless by some mutual agreement. No one deserves to be able to post on svbtle, or any service for that matter. You have no natural right to say things on other people...
I have a blog post about this very topic saved in drafts. I both agree and disagree at the very same time — that global sidebar is not the best designed thing. I'm replacing it shortly, but not necessarily with something that has labels. Needing labels is 100% valid criticism, and icon soup ...
Write it up, AY. Would love to read it.
There's a tendency to latch onto really interesting new concepts and use them indiscriminately. Then comes the recoil back towards reality. Responsive is less cool when it has been done to death for no apparent reason. Flat design seems excessive when everyone just flattens turds. Even thing...
Stephan, can you elaborate on what you mean by analog?
Really excited for this. It's a really interesting approach to presenting yourself and your work.
You're over thinking the question, buddy. I should have been more specific - I'm interested in the way people design and build products. Not so much the process that helps you decide on what to create.
Video would be awesome but I imagine it's easier said than done.
I'm not understanding what makes this different from a standard pull request. Is it the screenshot attachment?
This looks like its going to be good.
Looks really great. I feel like I should bring up Ian Storm Taylor's socrates.io which I find to be all kinds of cool. Another thought — With tumblr's latest UI update, writing blog posts in a tiny window isn't the best experience. I wish one of these distraction-free services would...
You guys and your responsive websites. I remain unconvinced of their awesomeness.
Really nice work Alex. I'm jealous of your excellent Latte typemark. It looks like it's even better than the last time I saw it — did you have more work done on it?
I've never heard that before. Tumblr has a content problem?
Those guys are way too talented.
That is gross. I'll fix it.
I've sunk the Free iPad post. We'll be removing the user. It happens. We overvalue freshness. That's not a huge deal right now because it's invite only, but there's still plenty of room to tweak. Sometimes bad eggs make it through.

Pentagram is killing it lately.
That comment above may apply more to the enter Flat Design discussion happening on Branch.
Didn't mean to come in and be a total dickhead. When you see so many thoughts coming from all directions about something that's still in its infancy and needs more thought — it gets kind of uncomfortable for me. I have 2 more posts on this theme that I hope to publish at some point — alt...
This is pretty funny.
This is beautiful work. I think H&FJ have been rolling out web fonts to a few choice customers for a while now. I hope they're launching their service soon — the world needs more H&FJ typography in it.
I'd love to see this as well :)
This is excellent. Have you worked with SVG at all? I'm moving away from PNGs on the web and towards SVGs, which doubles the amount of work but produces better results when scaled. PNGs, for some reason, get occasionally mangled by webkit on non-retina screens when scaled 50%. It sucks.
Many of those illustrations were done by Eric Mortensen. He's way better than I am. http://ericrmortensen.com But with GIFs I play at a professional level.

I sunk it. We don't need to pay an undue amount of attention to the HN submission :)
Brace yourselves everyone, here come opinions.
This is so genius that I'm surprised there's no other service that does it. Font Bureau's collection of type isn't my favorite, but this is an awesome, awesome way to sell fonts nonetheless.
This was exactly the kind of urban planning porn I was trying to avoid tonight. There goes my Saturday night.
Not at all, Cole. That wasn't a rib at you. I have someone else in mind who got pretty belligerent with "what is honest?"
I have yet to see a response to that blog post that fully understands the principle I write about. It was a quick blog post and needs to be explained in more detail, anyway. I'll likely write a follow up to address the red herrings and give a push to those designers who need it. I'd like...
Kelly is 4'11 and has red hair.
We're here too. Kelly is at the bar.
I just divide by 2 when hitting CSS. There may be a better way, but I'm not aware of it.
I'm doing most of the design work on a retina monitor with 2x PSDs, and occasionally hopping into a bigger monitor. The biggest change is that I try to export most stuff to SVG, which is a bit of a pain. Photoshop -> Smart Object -> Illustrator.
It would be great to do a NY one at some point in the next week or two. We're based out of NYC but it's funny how you never think to do a meetup unless you're going somewhere else.
Also, for lurkers, this is a good place to score invites. I'll give you one on the spot!
Really exciting news.
Ian says it's done by a friend of his. https://twitter.com/ianstormtaylor/status/289947939676229632
This looks suspiciously like Ian Storm Taylor's socrates.io: http://socrates.io
That's the concern I have. I'd likely use it if I was working in a text editor all day.
This looks wonderful
Impressive work. Very cool.
It would be interesting to see everyone's set. Ready? Go. http://i.imgur.com/53iEP.jpg
It would be a lot of work to add, which means you have to convince Kelly to spend a weekend on it :)
We do. Here's a demo of ours: https://vimeo.com/47680726
Oh, and an account menu.
My thoughts exactly.
One more. Required reading: http://adage.com/article/viewpoint/focus-groups-abolished/104151/
Infinite scroll, for real.
Great site or greatest site?
I love this idea and want to see a video of it in action.
It's unfortunate that some pople think it's OK to copy another person's work, simply because it doesn't look very complicated.
Great resource. It resembles "The Noun Project" - http://www.thenounproject.com
This looks like a really beautiful magazine. Also, the really great folks at Fuzzco seem to be in this one!
Any idea on whether this works with SASSified CSS?
http://bit.ly/VP1SHe - naturally.
Somehow I think the city is cool with these signs being tough to decipher.
I can't tell if this is good advice or not. Our philosophy is focus on the details from the beginning, but have very few details. Being really good is about figuring out how to have even fewer details — not about learning to ignore them.
The new Site Inspire looks great. There's some great stuff there. I also like seeing the stuff on http://siiimple.com/ — there's a similar level of quality work there.
I was wondering how long it would take to start seeing posts about coffee :)
"One has to observe it functioning in every form of media to determine the entire effect." That part of the post is highly questionable. Parts of this post also boil down to something like "the means justifies the ends." Well-intentioned design can be poorly executed too. So...
Not at the moment.
Something more than karma would be good.
Yeah, and posts/comments you've created are something I want to see.
Yeah, that would be cool.
Weird engineer humor. Yet another reason to switch to Sketch :)
We really need to fix the problem with duplicates.
I don't think anyone's copying Microsoft. Metro isn't even a good example of the flat style. My sentiment is exactly the opposite of yours, though. People don't seem to remember who they're copying or why they're doing things a certain way in the first place. That's ...
Agree with you completely. The mosaic of photos would be a lousy experience. So many things at once, all fighting for your attention. There are plenty of other criticisms you can make about how the design isn't very good, but my number one pieve is this: the non-linear masonry thing. It'...
Need to build comment upvoting so that I can upvote this.
Latest commit message: "go away DS_Store, you're drunk"
You can find some good stuff at http://teamtreehouse.com/ but it's more about the basics, I believe. I've seen tuts+ mentioned occasionally but can't vouch for its quality: https://tutsplus.com/courses/?q=true&filter_topic=3
I'd love to start seeing the sentiment that you can leverage design better by cutting. That's what I really as a challenge that a lot of startups struggle with (whether they know it or not). It would actually be pretty interest to find examples of two startups doing similar things with a...
Flexbox is so useful it feels like you're cheating. Support for it isn't great, unfortunately: http://caniuse.com/flexbox
Wish we supported emoji. I'd use the "thumbs up".
If there's any proof at all that designers still live in the dark ages, it's right here. We've got a long way to go.
I found the welcome screen to be pretty silly. Geeks love generative art, though.
Jairo - Avoid using terms like "FREE!" in the future :)
Love this deco lettering style. There's a designer I really love named Mads Burcharth who's excellent at it: http://work.mabu.dk/
Markdown would be awesome.
I asked KS to turn that off. Maybe that was a bad idea.
Pretty nice link. You should post it at some point... Also I just added a "Type" badge :D
So many of the Google Web Fonts look totally unusable. It's like looking through all the free fonts you downloaded as a kid. They're "good enough." Also makes you appreciate the work that guys like HF&J do when it comes to type and the massive number of ligatures in each ty...
This is really great work (aside from looking like a pretty cool speaker). Does anyone know who did it?
Do you think legal posts would be common?
This was already posted. It's #7 on the front page right now... We probably need a better way of dealing with this.
Probably:) Right now there are 3: Discussion (the post has no link, just a comment) Dribbble Apple There's a bug right now that's causing a badge to show on a post that's not a discussion. I've also got a handful more I'm waiting to deploy, but Kelly's on a plane rig...
Good catch. Wait for tomorrow's release!
Does anyone still do this? It can't be that common nowadays.
We added badges. Mention dribbble and you'll get a dribbble badge :)
