Figma. I can't recommend it more. No other tools needed. No more invision and avocode. No retro compatibility issues on your files or when there is new release. No more files on the server. Every design file has it's own url and is accessible from everywhere and with every machine. Versioning and prototyping.And you can use it for free if your team has just 2 designers. Import your sketch files and you're good to go.
I think the 140 characters limit is not suitable to articulate any sort of reasoning. It's more prone to generate the kind of comments we hate most like: "yup bro, I'm with you"..
Finally something new.
Especially if you work in a team.. how do you manage/catalog/share resources?
I'm sure the server and all the content is still there. We should collect signatures or sign a petition.
It's such a shame, that's a piece of history. Digital history that nobody will never access again. History taught us to keep artworks for the future generations. We're still studying and looking for artworks from the past and putting them into museums.
How much would it cost just to keep it as it is, without any functionality except browsing its content? Server space is getting cheaper and cheaper.
Any big brands available with some money to invest in brand image? It's an opportunity to make a good impression and clean a little bit your conscience :)
I'm thinking to start flagging as spam all the low quality articles on here even if they're not exactly spam. Just to push some pressure to the DN owners.
I know. It's impressive how many feature it has. You guys have done a really good job.
But I don't feel comfortable to use it in my web design workflow. Replacing Adobe + Sketch is not that easy. I don't see all these advantages compared to them and it's not widely used. My teammates should change as well. And all the people I work with.
Yes it's free but I'm a bit suspicious about this point. For how long is it going to be free? It doesn't look solid.
It'd be nice to see the actual % of the JPG quality and the related final file size in the export window. As photoshop does in Save for web.
It looks really interesting as a replacement of the adobe tools for the social media activities: resize/crop, add text, export.
I've just found a tool mentioned in a comment on the Smashing Magazine redesign news that sounds similar. Snapx. Similar goal but less visual. Or am I completely confused? https://app.snapx.io
