    I was taught to stick with 90º and I've basically followed that advice since. Light source from the center/top casts shadows that are even on the left and right side of whatever element has a shadow.

    Probably the hardest pet-peeve for me to defend are 120º shadows/lighting. It makes things feel less uniform and it drives me crazy.

    I agree that it should be labeled to remove any ambiguity but I feel like you could very easily/safely guess which of those two scenarios is the intended message.

    If they were just random logos to garner trust w/o any real relationship with those brands you would be right to be upset at being lied to and that's because we know what that set of logos is supposed to communicate.

    piggybacking further (the irony is not lost), building out intricate mood boards is also a good skill to cultivate and is related to this. Being able to understand the consistencies and relationship between very different imagery can help you develop the vocabulary around why those those images work together. Learning how to see means really analyzing and breaking down other great work.

    just chiming in with a +1 vue over anything else currently as well. It feels way more accessible as a designer who's not super familiar with js but otherwise still does regular front-end code writing.

    Basecamp does a nice guy publishing all of that in a handbook repo.

    This is a bummer to read. I hope people don't just equate this to typical burnout that might come from otherwise healthy work but from the toxicity the internet can be. We individually contribute to that either actively or passively. As a community, we didn't do enough to make her feel welcome and that's on us.

  • Posted to Is this spec work?, in reply to Alex Hoffman , Aug 06, 2018

    I only ask because the only time I've ever received useful valuable feedback on work I've done has been on work done for someone else (which makes sense, it's the work I was able to genuinely prioritize and think about as well as work on in a real environment instead of a hypothetical vacuum).

    genuinely asking, what kind of feedback would an employer give to newly created work they couldn't also give to existing portfolio work?
