  • Posted to Are you using animated SVGs?, Apr 20, 2020

    Tool barrier is definitely the issue for me. I've tried Haiku Animator which was so much better than trying to figure out AE but it's not particularly geared towards SVG. Haven't tried Keyshape yet. Would love something web based.

    As Aiste mentions, coincidence is not absolving in logo design. Due diligence to determine that a logo concept is unoccupied is a necessary part of the process. Lawsuits come up all the time when it is neglected (like F1 and Futuro).

    That's why perceived difference is key.

    The icon doesn't suck but it doesn't seem appropriate to be posting here.

    I prefer when that is the central job of an app icon, and sometimes logos do this too but the central job of a logo is probably more to be a distinctive symbolic 'sponge' to invest value into over time.

    I'd bet that most logos do not convey any significant amount of function/purpose.

    Haven't tried this but it was posted here awhile back https://www.canvasflip.com/visual-inspector/scribble/

  • Posted to A design tool that is also a developer tool. Introducing profiles in Hadron., Oct 30, 2018

    I got access to the preview and have been using it to create a mockup of a new version of my agency's site. I've wanted to get into front end web for a long time but it's felt too intimidating to tackle. Hadron's approach has helped me break through the barriers. Looking forward to playing with this new stuff.

    You can buy a Sketch kit and just drop it into Figma. There's a built in Sketch file importer.

    I'm seeing indigo text links used in a handful of other sections and I think your guidelines have appropriately shunned it because they are indeed uncomfortable to detect.
