    Nice to see a little more personality in the Duolingo logo

    I think social buttons should be thought about similarly to how people think about email signups. People get much more direct with CTAs and visually creative with those than they do with social and yet the two serve very similar purposes.

    Brand design aside, this site is terrible. So much content, so little hierarchy.

    I feel like this could probably be remedied by reordering the photos and putting a food image in a more prominent place. I mean, the place has a gorgeous exterior that deserves highlighting, but given the sparseness I think the user needs some more direct context.

    Yeah, when I saw this I was thinking album cover or poster art.

    These figures are pretty close to mine. I'm thinking about dropping the freelance work though, because I feel pretty burned out right now.

    I just think there is sooo much more to design than just the product scene and I would like to see more diversity in the news posted to DN.

    Agreed. Until that happens, do you have any sources you'd recommend for good design writing?

  • Posted to Typography is impossible, Aug 25, 2016

    The title had me worried, but this is a solid breakdown. Does a nice job of detailing some of the stuff that drives me crazy about setting type digitally, especially the differing character heights at the same point size and alignment issues.

  • Posted to Why do we have pull quotes on the Web?, in reply to Ryan Murphy , Aug 24, 2016

    perhaps designers should start adding a "tweet this" cta button next to all pull quotes.
