You're right ! I didn't think of it. What a powerful tool it will be…
I love it, make me smile a lot. And these buttons, oh god. That's right. I'm feeling old.
This is a lot of (good) work ! Nice job here. I'm always complaining about redesigns that are not functional at all, just pretty in a mockup. So it's refreshing to see a real UI/UX work.
My boyfriend was complaining about the UX of the app just yesterday. And now I just hope they will redesign it soon with all the good reflexion you added on !
I understand that designers have to understand code. Of course. It's like designing mobile and testing it on its phone. It's common sense. Tough, I don't think they have to learn code for it. That's why we work in teams, right ? I design with developers. They explain everything I need to know, I explain everything they have to know to them, and we build something together. I can do the basics but the rest is up to them. This way, I don't need to learn code.
Even if mobile is more and more used, desktop is still a huge pourcentage of views.
Also, even for an ecommerce or any website where mobile is the first device used, unfortunately, most of my clients just… don't know how to use a smartphone. So I have to design the desktop first so my clients can project themselves into the UX and the UI. They have really poor judgment about responsive or mobile websites.
But, I still think responsive when designing. That's really important, for my work but also for the developers behind me, to think how things will go on mobile and on tablet (I still think that tablet is under-used because of terrible UX, that device is so neglected…).
I understand all of the "mobile first" things but for me, the real things is we have to design for ALL device, there are all important.
