  • Posted to Designers, learn how to articulate your design decisions, in reply to Andrzej Tch. , Feb 21, 2018

    You're assuming that all designers are effective communicators, which isn't the case. There are designers who create fantastic and genuine work, but couldn't explain their decisions if their life depended on it. That does not render the designer incompetent; it means that they have an area of opportunity -- an area to improve upon. If you see a designer struggling in an area, help them, don't label them.

    The delay isn't what annoys me. It's that they announced "The first wave of invites has been sent!" and I'm pretty sure a VERY small handful of influencers were the only people invited in that wave. Then, a second a seemingly larger (still extremely small wave) was sent. Why even refer to those as waves?

    When I am told that a wave of invites have gone out, I assume that a lot of normal people who requested access were invited. Not influencers.

    I prefer viewing a darker UI because it's easier for me to read.

    As others have pointed out, there's a lot of "inspiration" from MailChimp.

    I am going to guess that the OP already has a specific person in mind.

    One of those nifty dot grid notebooks would be neat. But, to be honest, anything you've put thought into should go over well.

    It's logical to assume that both Studio and Sketch will improve and expand upon their existing "responsive" support. From what I have seen, Subform does a much better job at that right now, but I'm not sure I could justify a transition to that tool for that alone. At least, not right now.
