You repeatedly shit talk Designer News on twitter but can't stop polluting the site with highschool-grade diarrhea . Let's write one about that.
Would I really want to work at a place that will post a story about a job opening instead if just buying a job ad on DN? It comes across as a little sleazy.
Visually attractive. A usability disaster, but certainly nice to look at.
The challenge: adding to a simple thing - but after the additions, make sure it remains simple or even simpler.
Unfortunately, I'd say that this redesign does not succeed in making HN simpler. An obfuscated "Y-meter" ranking is not simpler than a number.
Don't mean to be condescending here, but this is a great example of a portfolio piece that helps indicate whether the designer you're looking at is mature or not. If this landed on my desk, it would be pretty clear that I'm dealing with a talented, but somewhat junior designer.
Coffeescript doesn't long to figure out. Don't let it stop you.
How to get innovators, early adopters, tastemakers, and thought leaders in design to turn against you: Release a product named Sketch.
When you're not in the boardroom, or marketing meetings with high-fiving fist-pumping managers, it's evident that Adobe's brand is already taking a beating. This won't help.
Things are going in the right direction. Why do this?
Ever get burnt out? Like, so burnt out you can't even open that illustration you know you're supposed to finish? Any way of dealing that that or just maintaining a healthy work/life balance?
Hey, Designers…We're listening to you.
That's awesome. I was somewhat distracted by how bad the font choices were for the site (wtf PS team? seriously?)
Seriously? Click on it, you knob.
Edit: Sorry for the name calling.
