  • Posted to Tastemaking: 2019 Design Trends, Jan 15, 2019

    Whenever I see a 'design trends' blog post, I immediately expect to see a regurgitated list of extremely basic stuff, like "flat design is in!", "more buttons this year!", etc.

    This article however was a nice breath of fresh air. The commentary on the warmer palettes we're beginning to see is pretty spot on, pinks and oranges are certainly trending a bit. It's apt considering that Pantone voted coral pink as this years colour.

    Nice article Jon, I've circulated it with my team!

    I wouldn't call it pointless, it's a clean execution and will likely help people in the future. Nice work!

  • Posted to Drone Keyboard for Tello, in reply to Doğukan Güven Nomak , Jan 11, 2019

    I understood this much.

    What I don't understand, like the poster above, is what makes this 'more enjoyable' than my existing keyboard to operate the drone? Or what scenario would you use this keyboard? (Apparently it's not responsive, so obvs the phone isn't where you'd use it)... iPads maybe?

    I always like to see cool coding projects, and absolutely don't want to come across as dissing the work. But I think there should be a bit of context into why this came into existence / what problem it's solving?

  • Posted to CleanMock - Stunning design mockups right from your browser, Jan 10, 2019

    Cool looking site- the layouts clean, animations are slick, and overall the branding is pretty concise.

    I have to wonder though who the target is for this? Surely designers creating these layouts already have desktop solutions to creating their mockups, I'm just struggling to think of a scenario where someone would go from their design software > export > open browser > go to site > create mockup.

    I suppose if there was direct Sketch/Figma/etc support, it might fill that process flow gap?

  • Posted to 10,500 icons | The worlds largest icon library - Streamline Icons 3.0, Jan 09, 2019

    I don't like the way that (in the web viewer at least) the category list on the left isn't ordered alphabetically. And I don't see a search input...

    Nice icons though!

    Use a better browser than safari then :)

    Safari is to apple users what Internet Explorer is to windows users IMO - something you use to download firefox or chrome.

    Please, DN facilitators, do not do this.

    Aside from the fact that there is copious research on the fact that users tend to only use a very small number of apps regularly on their phone - posing a possible lack of benefit vs cost - this site can't even keep it's blue header bar stuck to the top of the frame when scrolling, and you expect them to deliver a native iOs app?

    Maybe you could develop one for them, and then present it to them? I mean, the internet is what you make of it.
