How do you sell the value of a well crafted source file to execs e.g. thoughtfully created symbols in Sketch, nicely organised layers in Photoshop etc vs quick and dirty turnover of designs? I of course lean toward well crafted files, but I pay for it with many unpaid overtime hours. I feel like it’s a short term pain, long term gain kind of thing, but it’s hard to sell this to people who know little about design or old-schoolers who are not used to working with design systems. Any advice?
Why would they get rid of magic wand? I thought it was surprisingly good.
I stand by illustrator being the best way to export SVG's for consistent results, if you're a designer. Affinity Designer I'm sure is great if you know how to use it and if you're a developer. There's lots of SVG options but I don't know what they mean.
Does anyone know of a good way to test SVG's? When I export them they often look great in a browser but when one of our devs place it in our platform, all sorts of weird things happen. I then play around with settings until it looks right but it would be great if I could test them myself rather than driving the dev mad.
SVG export has improved from a design perspective, not sure what the code is like. I'd like to see what other people think?
Material design has a different interpretation of what a stepper is. I don't have an opinion of what either element should be called, but I think Google has a pretty big influence over the language we use.
However I haven't seen one consistent name for them so I think you can call them whatever you like. I've seen "Button Number Incrementers" and "Add Minus Number Buttons" which both suck.
Hey Brad. I apologise, my opinion is clearly uninformed and it was arrogant of me to diss your work when I know little about it, and especially when I have the choice to not use it. Atomic Design has clearly helped a lot of people build great systems and I’m going learn more about it before yabbering away.
Proto.io. A slightly steeper learning curve than the others but they have way more flexibility and functions than the aformentioned. Once you learn it you can pump out the animations.
Do $400 noise cancelling earbuds count?
Awesome, super keen to try. I love sketch but they've really slowed down with the feature releases, or at least with the features that I want. Just a not on the website, the bouncing button drives me bonkers!
congratulations, I have loved illustrator for a long time but adobes pricing models have pushed me toward affinity. The monopoly is over! Sketch still can't do vector drawings with the same flexibility as illustrator so it still doesn't compare in that regard
