Thanks. Just to be clear: I didn’t write this article, but I like it. :)
Yep, they did. And sorry, that means this trick won’t work for earlier versions.
Right. So maybe it should be default?
I participated in Dimensions, and learned a lot from the experience: https://dimensionssprint.withgoogle.com
I’ve also run sprints previously, but not under that name, and not under an identical structure.
Early stage startups sometimes don't have the 5 days to do a sprint especially if it's not done well.
It’s possible to condense them down to a shorter time, if the scope is smaller, or if there’s just no way you can dedicate 5 days to the process.
I think on smaller teams, sprints have less value, because you’re likely already using a similar process — everyone in the same room, everyone working on similar features, and hopefully everyone talking through everything.
But, on bigger teams, or when you need to realign to a common goal, I see a lot of value in design sprints. Ultimately, they should be saving time, because they help negate mistakes that cost a lot of time. The process also forces the team to re-examine fundamental concepts that may not be questioned otherwise. I would hope management don’t see a design sprint as a waste, but as an important way to focus.
Just checking you know about Stories › Top › Week?
Maybe the only change needed would be making that the default for the home page, or even storing the last selected state for each person, so everyone can see whatever they like (I don’t mind the high churn of the top stories).
Pro for native apps: You can use the native components for free.
Oh, absolutely. I’m sure that makes a massive difference. Was just saying that people are researching these things.
I’m not saying anyone’s buying anyone else, but if Figma did decide to sell, it’s likely to be the companies you listed, or InVision or Adobe who pay the required price.
As far as I know, Serif (Affinity) is privately held. I wouldn’t expect them to buy a VC backed company.
every time you remove a signifier, you subtly increase the amount of mental effort that's required to use your interface.
