    I thought everybody agreed that the Dropbox rebrand was terrible, so why are brands copying that aesthetic??

    I just can't get behind the current trend of combining serif and sans serif fonts in the same sentence. I also didn't realize her site contained work samples.

    Yeah it's a little too close for comfort compared to those two sites, IMO. I searched around this landing page to see if this was actually a tool created by another company that shares the same style. It does look nice, though.

    Thanks for the response! Completely agree about asking for design tests/projects. Viewing their work, hearing their process and how they think about design should be enough to make a decision. Do you think a short in-person whiteboarding session is valuable?

    Don't give them any ideas.

    Completely agree with this. As a freelancer, my mantra has been, "Do what you do best - outsource the rest."

    Forgive me for being skeptical, but how did you get this position? I see you have a pretty limited post history and your Twitter only goes back to March. Your website and Dribbble don't show any work, and you've described yourself as a junior designer, so I'm curious why we should trust that you'll help the community?

    I feel like the ~cOoL nOtEbOoK~ trend from the early 2010s is over.

    Must be nice to have a design team big enough to put something like this together. Was there not enough work to do on the actual Airbnb site/app?

    Andrew Wilkinson craves power and control. He loves that he controls these sites and has the power to do nothing with them.
