The intro of the article is pretty good, the take-aways a bit too generic. What's exciting for me is that this technology is new and evolving. So as a UX designer, you can help shape the tech itself to create better experiences long-term. There's a of course plenty of the usually usability and styling work to do, but I can think we do more. It's a very developer-heavy community right now and more designers and front-end devs are needed.
Disclaimer: I started working with the Monero team on redesigning their wallet recently. Pretty excited about the project right now. Ping me if you would like to chat about it. Here's the design repo.
Very dramatic. I don’t understand why design at Apple and Google has to be seen as this competition where one company has to be awesome and the other terrible. They are different, they have strengths and weaknesses. If both do amazing stuff, we all gain. Let’s cheer good work, let’s criticize where it’s deserved. But let’s not look at it as a death match. YOLO
Really depends. Usually, shipping small changes is the way to go. Occasionally, you are stuck with your overall direction and need a clean break from it in order to move forward. If you do a complete re-design, you have to consider that you might be breaking habits and behavioral patterns. So the new design has to have so much value to the product or company that that's OK to do.
Tweaking some visual details and ironing out transitions on Coinnnnn. Just acting on a long-time want to build a big, visual dashboard.
Great attitude. Just keep up the energy, keep iterating and getting more feedback and you'll be in a great place.
Same experience here. It really gets out of your way and let’s you focus on building a great interface. Particularly in combo with Firebase, it just becomes so easy to make cool stuff.
My initial feedback would be to make this less about yourself. The post title uses "I" twice, your domain starts with "I" and three of your sentences in the post body also start with "I". "I need" is also not a great way to start things off. Turn it around and talk about how the internship is part of your education and you are excited to join a team and help them create amazing work, etc with the things you have learned. Talk about what you can contribute. And as an intern, you have to show that you are flexible. You likely don't know the ropes yet, so you have to show that you are humble, a quick learner, and a hard worker. That didn't come through for me with the language you are using. Before anything else, I'd focus on that, but I'm curious what others say. Hope it helps.
I tried out Figma, but not a heavy user. Nonetheless, it's amazing to see so much stuff happening. Keep up the great work.
Not sure if it has to be a design tool like Sketch, but better tools to work with the files already in Dropbox, create presentations, etc, would be cool. This could be specific to workflows like copywriting, sign-offs, etc... complementary to things like Sketch.
Definitely feels like there's potential. But since nobody has figured it out yet, isn't that a perfect opportunity for a community of designers to spend a little bit of time and suggest some good solutions? ;)
