We moved from Trello and are using Teamwork (https://www.teamwork.com/). It has good UI and functionality. You can track time as well and it's pretty sleek and fast.
Hans Zimmer, the man, the myth, the legend. Dark Knight, Inception, Interstellar, Man of Steel, Rush...All spectacular.
I've been using audiojungle.net from Envato for a while now. They have a lot to choose from and the tracks are of top-notch quality.
It is everywhere. I've been using it a lot in my web projects, but in a very limited way, mostly in all caps and I never use it for body text.
I have transitioned to using Europa from Typekit. It's similar, but doesn't distract from the reading experience.
We are using Teamwork (https://www.teamwork.com/) after coming over from Trello. I still use Trello for my side projects.
To clarify this point: There needs to be a greater effort on the part of designers to use better words to describe their work.
Instead of crafting a message specifically tailored to each respective design, it seems that "beautiful" is used as a go-to blanket statement.
What does it mean though? The subjective nature of the word itself makes it a poor adjective to use when describing the quality of a design. We can be better than this.
My point exactly. Aesthetics is a large factor in an overall design, but it is not more important than its functionality. Using the word "beautiful," in most cases, seems to be emphasizing form over function and content.
Gotham is a great font. Never really get tired of seeing it. However, I am tired of seeing Bank Gothic used for movie titles.
