    By now we all know what a new Stripe landing page means. Yep, it's reconsider-your-life-choices time again.

  • Posted to The 2018 State of Branding report is out! All branding predictions and insights by the "big brands" professionals., Apr 04, 2018

    79% of respondents say that social and cultural issues will play a significant role in their branding and marketing strategy in 2018.

    You don't say! Social and cultural issues, really?

    I also couldn't help but notice the mismatched data visualizations with no legends:

    Surveys can be a great way to create informative content, but they only work if you ask the right questions and take the time to think about the best way to present your data.

    (Cross-posting my Medium reply here)

    Good post, but I think there’s a simple explanation to why even “design leaders with years of experience” feel overwhelmed: they have years of now-obsolete experience!

    Someone learning CSS now wouldn’t need to bother with floats, they can go straight to Flexbox and CSS Grid. Someone learning JavaScript today can skip jQuery and go straight to React. No need to master Photoshop’s dozens upon dozens of menus and commands, just open up Figma!

    Rather than discourage newcomers by complaining about how complex things have become all the time, “design leaders” should be pointing them at all these new tools (including Webflow ;) that can save them time and help them avoid making the same mistakes we made.

    This looks great, but as a designer I don't feel like it's really for me. I don't really need to read more general statements about how designers at Slack or Netflix work.

    Designers at Slack work "out in the open"? Great, how does that help me with my next project? "Sketching is a big part of the exploratory process." You don't say!

    Sorry if I seem cynical, but when I see this much resources put into producing design content, I just wish the end product was a bit less bland and corporate.

    (Edit: this does have the word "enterprise" in the URL… maybe that should've been my clue to stay away)

    Nice article, but this you're really missing out on potential traffic by not having a link to your actual product in the first paragraph of the article (as well as an explanation of what it does).

  • Posted to French designers! Help me find a good name for my Chrome extension, Mar 11, 2018

    Most design apps don't localize their names so I'm not sure if you need to worry about this at all. After all you don't open "Boutique de Photos" to retouch some pictures…

    You're already a 0 points so adding downvotes would just seem cruel…

    Stop ruining the design industry with your subversive cartoons and entertaining videos! Design is serious stuff, there's no place for joking around!

    Better be overrated than not rated at all.
