A brass pen that can be found on Alibaba!
Hey Folks! Working on a project that would immensely benefit from y'all filling out this survey.
All info is anonymous in case you were wondering.
But don't you do that already by commenting on DN?
It's just worthless. I'm regretting typing this as I type it because its not worth my time. Yet I still type it.
This is click bait. Who gives a shit.
A $60 pen? GTFO.
Browser, device. All the same. Design tools output in one medium whereas the actual app, site, experience is output in many.
Sketch is incredible incompatible for designs. More than happy to walk you through where it tends to shit the bed (hint anything related to fonts/vertical spacing).
I don't believe its one person's responsibility solely to own the "design". I've written on this topic before and I try to rely on teams owning the output while individuals/groups (design team, etc) own the tools (sketch, psd). However, I'd be more than happy to point out lack on consistency in spacing, font-sizing, color usage, left over values, etc in design files. All things considered, imagine a dev getting a design file (for whichever medium) and values are constantly off by 2-4px but with no real rhyme or reason. That is usually where I've found devs (the ones I'm around) make "exec decisions" to normalize those values.
Relying on a picture to communicate minor nuances is never a safe bet. And expecting a tool that creates "perfect" designs to actually be a valid representation of an ever-changing medium (devices, browsers) will fail every time.
In my opinion (and its only an opionin, not fact) is that these tools tend to be very rigid in what is a "completed design". These types of tools tend to advent for pixel-perfection which negates the flexibility of platforms the files (pictures really) are meant to represent.
EX: Just because a button is 5px lower than what Sketch outlined doesn't mean its wrong.
Even more so, I'd possibly "argue" and say that tools like PSD and Sketch are incompatible for designs since they are not usually capability of accounting for real world variants that some browsers create.
This tool seems terrible. I feel bad for every developer out there.
The summer of George is in full effect here.
