    Mac only though isn't it? Figma's biggest advantage is cross-platform compatibility & availability.

    Love it, some nice new features and performance enhancements. Looks like they've nailed Surface Pen & Dial compatibility as well which is great. I spent at least 30 mins this morning just playing around with the new brushes.

    Sure it might promote his company, but I haven't reached that point yet. It appears to be quite a long article that I've bookmarked for later reference and I'm looking forward to reading the whole thing and playing around with a CMS I haven't used before.

    I feel if someone has taken the time to write such an indepth piece of content then they have earned the right to spruik their services at the end. Writing a piece of content like this takes a long time so it seems only fair.

    Be happy it isn't yet another Figma toolkit salespitch.

    Also when it's clearly Mac only.

  • Posted to Introducing Textblock, Feb 05, 2019

    Theo Rosendorf of Typographic Desk Reference (TDR) fame, has released a new javascript-based tool for adjusting size, leading, & grades.

    Here's what he has to say:

    Going on five years, we have used Textblock to great effect at Glyphic. It was originally used for design prototypes, and over time slipped into production for sites already using JavaScript. We now use it to typeset all of our work. It’s quick to use and gives complete control over type size and spacing.

    We thought it was just too good to keep to ourselves so we have released it open source. We hope you enjoy using it as much as we have.

    This is brilliant. I was playing around with PDF export and the new export panel yesterday, and I've already used it half a dozen times for client work.

    Figma truly are game changers.

  • Posted to Black Friday deals for designers organized into a simple website , Nov 24, 2018

    Good list of deals, although extremely annoying that none of the links can be opened via middle-click.

    A huge pet-peeve is when a site meddles with expected interactions like this.
