Agreed. When you consider a transatlantic flight can produce over half a terabyte of data and that doesn't really take into consideration that non-data processing, mechanical complexities then this statement does seem slightly absurd. I would guess that my washing machine is probably a better comparison :)
Thanks! I knew I wouldn't have time to checkout all the books on your list but 3 I can manage :)
Great post. Andrei, it looks like you read a ton of books that are super relevant to designers. Would you mind telling us which, if any, you highly recommend and why?
I think you are talking about something different. A design system can be independent of the software you are using to design and might be used by people from all departments of an organisation. This is a design system: https://polaris.shopify.com/ and the OP is talking about using "Invision Design System Manager" to unify all the examples, guidelines, assets etc. in one place. It's not really about sketch vs figma vs xd or whatever software people are using to create the assets/prototypes. A design system these days would typically link to code examples as well and maybe even embed react components from something like storybook.
I went through the same journey, only started using anima as a paddy replacement, but now I find it extremely useful for other kinds of symbols as well where I want to maintain spacing between elements.
There's nothing iOS specific about any of this…they're just animation concepts.
About 8 years of experience working remote full-time and a few more years of remote freelance before that. I love working from home but I've never really worked in an office for more than a week at a time whilst on visits so can't really compare. What kind of things are you interested to hear about?
You are the only one trying to point fingers here, Kemie never said it was anybody's fault, just one of the challenges of working remotely.
it's ALL for their benefit, no one in the office gets any benefit
Apart from the reduced operating costs, which is an indirect benefit to everyone, if that person is happier and more productive working remotely, then that is a benefit to everyone that has to interact with them.
Website looks lovely but…I signed up under this CTA:
An open platform for presentations and content collaboration. Sign up to get early access.
but when I received the confirmation email it read:
Pitch Newsletter: Please Confirm Subscription
I was expecting to sign up for early access, not a newsletter, you might want to amend either the language on the website or in the confirmation email (I'm still unsure what I signed up for). Anyway, I'm glad you guys are working on this and look forward to trying the software.
Beautiful website, my only feedback is that I think the paragraphs are a bit wide. Larger font and/or narrower width would make me more inclined to read the content. Butterick's typography guide for example recommends 45-90 chars per line, you're at about 100. There is also some text overlapping a yellow blob on the services page that hinders legibility. All in all though great job, I enjoyed reading through the baraja case study, awesome logo.
