UX StackExchange tends towards more objective, fine-grained design issues (typically UI design issues) —if you see the list of recent questions, you'll see things like "pencil icon for create vs. edit."
Playbook positions itself as "actionable career advice," which is not at all what StackExchange provides in my experience. The questions are much more about process, workflows, advice.
So I think the title of this post is a bit of a misnomer. I've found both sites useful, but they're quite different in terms of subject matter.
Super exciting to see tools like this—will check this out ASAP.
Are you aiming for feature parity with Lottie?
I'd recommend Mural for sticky notes and 'whiteboarding lite.' It's super smooth and easy to learn.
I'd also recommend emphasizing the need for advance preparation (honestly, this should be important for any meeting but becomes glaringly obvious with remote teams) and asynchronous updates (not everything has to be done at the same time in the same room—figure out what does and doesn't need real-time collaboration).
Agreed. Thanks for this!
Has there been thought in Framer Studio around statefulness and component libraries? I feel like Figma and Subform are innovating in these areas.
I think the point of the post is to warn against this company, not to promote it.
Feels very inspired by Shopify's illustration style. The serif typeface also feels kind of strange, but that might be because I'm used to the actual app branding.
Unrelated to the actual article, but I miss the old Boxes and Arrows site that wasn't just the most basic Wordpress template. Does anyone have any insight into why they changed?
All good points, I mostly agree.
I rarely spend time on the home page, though, so the typography and layout of the article pages is most important to me. I didn't immediately notice, but I do think the articles feel more cramped (I wonder if the line-heights are actually smaller).
