  • Posted to BT unveils new logo after 3 years of work, May 20, 2019

    I mean the logo works, and will eventually grow on us once it becomes familiar. It's not special or unique at all though but lately it's about the marketing and usage that goes with them.

    What I'm interested in is how does one convince a client that two letters in a circle should be their logo, for that amount of money? (which I'm guessing it's a lot)

    That's what I want to know.

    Like at least one stakeholder surely thought to themselves (meh I can do this myself in a word doc)

    Yeah. To be fair the mark isn't exactly unique and it's very easy to replicate. Airbnb probably knew about it, or maybe they didn't as the previous one wasn't exactly popular, but I'm sure Sears knew of Airbnb's.

  • Posted to I challenged myself to design everyday for 365 days and I did it!, Jan 08, 2019

    I had a quick look through your shots and what I like is that most of them seem well thought and detailed and not just simple UIs of clocks, weather apps, etc..

    365 days seems a like a lot. As a UI/UX designer I completed a 26 days one where I had to design a logo using 2 randomly generated words starting with each letter of the alphabet (e.g. ask age) just so I can learn new tricks and more about logo design, and it takes a lot of focus to make sure you don't miss a day. Did you design one a day or went on a roll and designs several then posted them?

    And finally, guessing this is one year later but did it help getting your current job?

    Yeah I think the problem is that you're branding it and people don't like that, or at least some. Personally I'd take the time to add stuff manually than have them branded.

    As for the camera, same thing, depends on the person an emoji might be too playful or fun, and they might just want it simple and basic

    I think it's a nice little tool, and many will find it useful. Looks good, visually. I think it puts me off because it says via tweet.photo and while I understand the point, it looks like you are retweeting a tweetphoto's tweet or something like that.

    Also, would get rid of the camera emoji, keep it nice and simple.

    Might be because they're offered in an SVG format and devs can easily use them? Still, appreciated share though!

    I know exactly what you mean. The difference is that you promote it as an agency instead of as a portfolio which is a place to show off your work. I got my portfolio set up on Squarespace using that exact theme for the same reason, but it's more important for an Agency to have a custom, original 'Home'.

    Good luck on that though! :)

    I'd say using Squarespace to promote your UI/UX agency isn't a good start.

    The article contains tools for devs and not designers.
