    I think it looks great. It's not even close to Stripe. Is the design community come to the point where an angled gradient design belongs to a company? Lay one site over the other.

  • Posted to Tesla Model 3 UI: Everything Controlled from the Touchscreen, in reply to Kyle D , Sep 27, 2017

    As a huge fan and having a side interest into human interaction inside of vehicles (also vehicles in general), this is very concerning. Touch interaction is unfortunately the future. Screens are the future. But, I think you've pointed out some key flaws when involving someone who is actually driving the vehicle. I don't understand how these screens pass for usage on roads to be quite honest. I think that's something that needs to be implemented for the future. Mercedes, BMW and others are moving towards touch interaction more and more.

    Thanks! Although I probably won't use it as you intended, this helps a ton with grouping and organizing my style guides.

  • Posted to How and why do you use Dribbble?, Sep 05, 2017

    Dribbble is marketing. Like it or not, you can attract some attention for freelance work and possible full-time opportunities based on your work. It's always good to keep it active as quite a few design teams (hiring) probably look to Dribbble to see some work. Don't use it purely as a portfolio though.

    As for myself I use it as inspiration. There's great ideas and great designers on there but I try not to get sucked onto the hype train.

  • Posted to Should I buy a Mac and switch to Sketch?, Apr 03, 2017

    You could potentially dual boot your Mac with Boot Camp and have both. However, with a PC you can't necessarily dual boot into MacOS (you could, but the Hackintosh thing never really works out perfectly IMO). You could run the Mac on Windows 10 for all personal things, restart and boot into MacOS when working. Or just purchase a Mac for work, keep a PC for play.

    It will be a transition that's for sure. I have a MacBook Pro 15" for work and a built Windows 10 PC for gaming.

    Bots to me are just drones answering with scripted responses. Back in the day we created bots on IRC to do the exact same thing.. i'm talking the 90's. They are scripts that don't have much depth. Sure you can make them smarter with machine learning but we are way far away from an actual bot to give meaningful responses.

    Here's my hiring manager input: I think you did a good job relaying what you achieved on each of your projects and your process as well. One thing that sticks out to me that I like to see when viewing portfolios is splitting up your designs (instead of bulking them into 8 screenshots and just a single paragraph of text) and explaining your thought process. For example, take a screenshot and add some commentary on the problems you faced, how you solved them. Maybe focus on your big 'wins' with a project.

    Good work! Good luck!

    I like when people take these 2 week primer courses that everyone is trying to sell and then proceed to say they are now a UX expert.

  • Posted to Featured: Why Designers Are Blind to the Flaws of Their Own Design – FullStory, in reply to Tom Brady , Mar 11, 2016

    I'd argue that your "intuitive solutions" are possibly the whole purpose of this article. What are these solutions? Do your solutions make sense to others? You can run through iterations of a design and it still doesn't make sense. This comes down to understanding who is using your product. The solution is relative to the product and the product's user, not to the designer.

    I love Ember. It's first and only inspiration collection product I have used which I really like. I'm glad they are at least going to support it with updates (so they say). I just bought it too.
