  • Posted to How do you manage copy text in a huge application?, in reply to Michael Cook , Nov 15, 2018

    The point this misses for me (my team) is that it only serves as an initial gate. Once the designer collabs to get the copy correct, the design is updated, and it still serves as the source of truth for the development team. I think that's where the big problem lies, the design should never be the source of truth for copy.

  • Posted to A design tool that is also a developer tool. Introducing profiles in Hadron., in reply to Nacho García , Oct 31, 2018

    Hi Nacho - I'm not sure I understand this part

    because Hadron edits code on the fly

    What does this mean when compared to other tools like Webflow and Modulz? How does this make Hadron better, or different?

    Hey friend. Small typo on your site. You've got "loosing" instead of "losing"

    Also the fact that the $ is after the digits on your pricing put me off a little.. I'm in the UK, and it's correct British and American English to have the dollar sign before the digits. I don't know if localising is easy - but it's something to consider.

    I just backed this for $99... I think the reward of lifetime access + updates is absolutely incredible. I got very excited by the video on the kickstarter page - and I really hope this is a big success.

    I've unfortunately lost a lot of love for Framer recently because they seem to have gone a different direction, and it feels like it's aimed more at devs than designers who aren't great with code. So seeing this made me really rather excited as it seems to really shoot for the true problem of reducing the gap from design to development.

  • Posted to What rucksack / bag do you use?, in reply to Kristen Singh , Oct 17, 2018

    I had this bag and ended up giving it away for free. The straps were insanely uncomfortable for me. Aside from being uncomfortable, I found that the thick rubber just felt unpleasant to the touch.

  • Posted to Advanced prototyping is now within reach, thanks to Framer X, in reply to Johan Ronsse , Sep 07, 2018

    Wow, what is up with all the hateful comments here?

    A design world without criticism would be a very bad thing

    Maybe you all have forgotten, but It was a scandal when I criticized them for this.

    Scandal? Hardly. The top comment on that thread has 68 points and it's backing up what you tweeted.

    Now you're all finally catching on...

    I mean.. this just kind of makes you sound awful - regardless of whether you had an opinion before some others might have.

  • Posted to Do you use Adobe Illustrator for your UI design work?, in reply to Andrew C , Jul 25, 2018

    No offence taken.

    The facebook post is certainly not abusive, I agree. It's the other comments this person makes on a regular basis that are offensive. I'll copy a few which haven't been nuked in case you don't feel like digging through:

    OMG another left-wing moron.

    "Accept diversity" read like a leftist moron's point of view (if he/she is capable of any). I know you might know nothing about design but please hold from attacking me personally.

    I am way too professional to say "I don't like it". It just breaks so many rules of UX, UI, design in general, good practices of this, that, rules of gestalt, etc. that it's just awful. Of course, for those of you who don't know shit about design - this might be appealing.

    Oh, typical leftist BS: you search the internet for the person and mock the persons face / hair / anything just to be on top. WOW. Great.

    This person is a constant hostile voice, and one day I got tired of seeing their hostile, abusive comments and nothing being done about it by DN mods, so I decided to keep reminding them of one of their comments I found very funny. I enjoy the reaction it gets from them.

    You possess all the knowledge, don't you. More than those ugly and poor UX crap designers at thefacebook.com have combined!
