    Unfortunately it looks like your post got sunk by an algorithm for appearing that way. In any case, I shared with my team if it's any consolation.

  • Posted to Everyone hates open offices. Here’s why they still exist., Jan 15, 2019

    A 2018 study by Harvard Business School found that open offices reduce face-to-face interaction by about 70% and increase email and messaging by roughly 50%, shattering the notion that they make workers collaborative.

    I wanted to yell at you for telling me what to do and using exclamation marks, but turns out this is a solid piece and I agree with your sentiments and advice. Thanks for sharing.

  • Posted to The issue of diversity in icon design, Jan 04, 2019

    This is why internationally-focused apps like Headspace just use little monsters, which is clever and effective. If you live in NYC, for example, you wouldn't give a second thought to the diversity avatars, but if your product is focused on some random monoculture, the ethical politics of representation could totally backfire. Tough stuff.

  • Posted to Is Design Valuable?, Jan 02, 2019

    I don't want to be that dude, but there's kind of disconnect between the content and the headline here. In my opinion, the article is closer to "Are design tools valuable to designers?" There's really no valid data here that says Tesla using a css gradient increases value, let alone my larger issue that perhaps a gradient in this context is a mere component of a design and not, in fact, design.

    Unless you're arguing that designing your own stuff well vs. the competition has helped you in this space, then I've misread the whole thing.

    In any case, thanks for sharing your hard work with us and being a good citizen of the community.

    I too am hoping and optimistically expecting the padding feature soon. I found Anima way too buggy to use with Invision. My hacky solution right now is to keep a consistent fixed margin around the text and manually resize the button to just before the label begins to wrap to a second line.
