    I don't understand why we need so many different titles. Why can't things just stay simple and to-the-point?

  • Posted to Opening external source links on the same page. Why?, Mar 20, 2017

    I don't like it when external links are opened on the same window. I fully expect a local link (i.e. blog, about, etc.) to open in the same window, but it's really annoying when clicking a "visit our Twitter" opens up on the same window.

    While you can get by with resources on the Internet, there's nothing like having a design colleague in the same workspace as you who can share experiences, knowledge, and provide feedback to you.

    Could that possibly be achieved with Principle?

    I've used Zeplin, but I'm not a fan of the comment system. I began using Inspect when it was released and have no plans to return to Zeplin.

    I understand that "failing" sucks, but it's life. Any designer who's said they've never failed at something is either lying or hasn't been designing long enough to have had a chance to fail.

    With that being said, putting this company on blast was a horrible idea. They offered you $1,000 to essentially pitch your skills to them. If another potential client were to see this article, their initial thoughts could be "If we hire him and things go sour, we're going to be put on blast."

    You could have written this article without revealing the company's identity. That makes me feel like you wanted them to look bad.

    Is that just a concept design or can it actually be used in Sketch?

    Is that useable or is that just a design? :P

    I'd really like to see a dark theme for Sketch.

    Shows like Shark Tank and Dragon's Den aren't scripted, though.
