    Self-congratulation is a key aspect of designers who only hang around designers. I've often said the only thing designers love more than themselves are other designers.

    Oh interesting, I've been trying to get a good discount but they won't budge. The best they will do is offer me a 5% discount if I sign for 6+ months, but it's still more than my budget. I'm looking at a private office though, so maybe that's why.

    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?

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

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