Shaming other designers is not a great way to advocate for something you think they should be doing. I'd class this as shaming.
Perhaps a better approach might be to explain a bit more about where you feel Sketch is lacking in comparison to Figma?
Something I can't seem to see any clear answer on is whether or not there will be actual files on my hard drive with Sketch Teams.
One of the things I love about using Figma is that there are no files floating around requiring organisation on my hard drive - I absolutely love that I simply open the Figma app, and it's all there for me! If Sketch teams is the same, then I'll possibly be willing to switch back to Sketch to try out Teams.
EDIT: One other small thing that I LOVE in Figma is the ⌥+L shortcut to collapse all folders / groups - I'd want that from Sketch as well.
There are a lot of comments already, some of which just seem to be flexing, but I'll add another opinion in anyway.
I think it depends on the goal.. A full product prototype might be useful in some circumstances, but also might be someone just asking for a full prototype because they haven't thought a whole lot about the goal. I'd do some discovery around what the goal of the prototype is, and then make a collective judgement call with your peers.
If it's for usability testing - maybe suggest a leaner approach where you build prototypes based on smaller tasks.
If it's for something like internal communication so that everyone understands how a new product will link together then it might be very much worth it. A whole team of people who all understand a common goal will work much more effectively.
As for how you're doing this - I guess that depends on a few factors as well, like what products you work well in. Personally I would do this all in Figma - because I already work in Figma, and the prototyping functionality is the same as InVision. If this is a prototype that required higher functionality like working dropdowns, or authentic data input and storage, then I would go to Axure - this also depends on timeframes as well.. If you are in a startup I'm guessing you'll have to opt for the quick approach - but if you're at an established corporate gig you might have a week or a few weeks to put something together.
So - is it madness? Depends entirely on your circumstances.
The image is balanced overall because the larger part of the image - the foreground - is less complex. Your eye is drawn away from him, yes, but your eye is focused on him first. After you focus on the man, you moved away to focus on what is behind the man.
I'd say the illustrator has done a terrific job of this.
you can export .fig files - https://help.figma.com/article/205-exporting-to-other-tools
what if you logged in one day and an important file was missing
I'm really not sure if that's possible. I certainly haven't heard of this ever occurring, and the community is pretty active with talking about issues.
Switch to Figma.
Honestly though - this is one thing I don't miss about Sketch... Local files and sluggish performance on larger project files.
Aren't Spotify already working on pretty much exactly this? If it comes out in a short while, you should definitely consider working for them! haha. Really cool concept mate - I love it.
I would love to see more detail in how this would work.. An initial question I have is around how I can queue songs up, and can the primary person in the group neg songs? is there like an 'admin' of each group? I understand this is a concept only, but it would be amazing to see all of the small details as well.
Always nice to downsize the toolset. We recently moved from Sketch / Abstract / Zeplin to just using Figma and I'm pretty happy so far... I'd love it if Sketch introduced a way to add dev handoff as well
a couple of folks that work at unicorns that enforce a Stasi-like "Be Nice" Policy that stunts all productive discussion
This resonated very hard. I don't participate in many discussions now because so many communities / individuals seem more interested in constantly flattering and congratulating each other. It feels like criticism is being mistaken for negativity.
I refuse to look at toptal after seeing how much they spammed here on DN. It just left a bad impression on me so I have very negative connotations
