  • Posted to Advanced prototyping is now within reach, thanks to Framer X, Aug 16, 2018

    I'm excited, yes. Yet, I'm losing interest with the hyperbole and water torture launch strategy.

    Please, launch already.

    This is getting old.

    This is not spec work.

    It is a convoluted hiring process - I can't imagine why any designer with basic skills would submit to that kind of nonsense unless they're desperate.

    This is awesome. We recently did a new office, which uses an unconventional "optimized" layout. It has been a much more pleasant working environment.

    Just because someone can hold a knife doesn't make them a brain surgeon.

    The content appears to be forward thinking and really useful. Putting in a second request here for a way to download it. This is not a pleasant way to consume long-form content of this nature and put it into action.

    Silly, non-premise to argue in the first place.

    Kopie looks like a sweet tool. I'm definitely going to check it out.

    One thing, I would strongly encourage prototyping with real data and information.

    As a designer, if you're mindlessly prototyping with Lorem or some ironic text, then you're not fully considering the overall communication intentions of the design elements you're laying out.

    That doesn't mean you have to become a copywriter, but it does you mean you should be able to write a simple statement and two sentences, which captures the spirit of the element that contains the copy.

    Same holds true with prototyping applications, which require data.

    There should really never be the excuse, "I'm waiting on the content".

    Just having some basic content with real intentions in place will reduce these headaches.

    Nice and well organized. A no-brainer for $5.

    I just bought it.

    Thanks.

    I get it. I've turned off nearly all of my notifications on my phone.

    The very first screen of apps on my phone is completely blank, the second screen has 8 apps/ some folders and there is a single folder/ launcher in the dock.

    That works for me, other people may need to respond to some messages with more urgency so that probably wouldn't work for everyone.
