  • Posted to How many designs do you usually present to the client?, Jan 14, 2017

    If you have to present options (that is completely different designs not just variations), it means you have failed to understand your client's company, their goals and their problems. It's our job to take that information and translate it into design, not give our client 3 pretty options to chose from and hope one of them gets it right.

    That's not to say you should only explore one solution throughout your process or that you shouldn't discuss ideas with your clients, because that's usually what leads to the best results, but there's a clear difference between that and going away and coming with several different versions hoping one of them gets it right.

    You should include way more info than that if you expect feedback. Who are the clients and what do they do, what is the purpose of these sites, how do you justify your ideas, what specifically do you need feedback on, etc.

  • Posted to Ugh.. k15t Labs totally rips off InVision's Inspect product [Update: k15t is based off Sketch Measure. Not a rip-off.], in reply to Tareq Ismail , Jan 12, 2017

    There are only so many ways you can design something and I wouldn't try being unique and creating something unnecessarily complicated just for the sake of it. + InVision's interface is again similar to Avocode's.

    There were many products doing this before InVision jumped on the bandwagon. https://avocode.com had an interface quite similar to what InVision has long before they created theirs, Adobe had a similar inspector built into Creative Cloud for about a year now.

    InVision is a useful product and so far their prototyping software is the best in the market, but let's stop acting like they're innovative or that any of the things they create are anything more than useless marketing tools trying to get more designers to sign up (craft, every single silly blog post, their UI kits).

    Isn't hiring someone based on their race/religion/sexual orientation the whole thing you are trying to fight against?

    I don't know of any such systems but I think you'll have a better chance of getting an answer on developer communities like stack. You could also try sites where people sell software like codecanyon (it may be a pretty bad example but it's the only one I know).

    They are also testing a suggested video that shows up in the middle of what you are currently watching for the last 10 seconds or so.

    +1 for optimising images. The site itself has little to do with how fast images load. Try compressing them with a non-lossy program (so that no quality is lost) and you'll see how much faster they can get. On a mac I use JPEG Mini and ImageOptim (both non-lossy and pretty great). Not sure for windows or online solutions.

  • Posted to The festive holidays - how will you spend your time?, in reply to Kyle Greely , Dec 27, 2016

    Thanks for that. Dribbble always had far more jobs in the US than anywhere else, and rarely anything in Paris, but I never thought of using indeed or uxjobs for a different location.

    I've been a freelancer my entire career so I don't understand the industry as well as I should but I'm happy to talk about whatever else. My whatsapp is +447598461151

    Man that took balls. But on the other hand, having put everything into it, you kind of have no other option but to get it right. Well done anyway.

    What I was more interested in are the technical details - specifically where you looked for jobs, how you approached these companies, what they expect from designers, etc. I'd very much like a position in Paris myself, but I wouldn't know where to start and moving there is not an option (no friend to keep me for a whole year).
