    LOL. I guess when Ps was the only benchmark, you'll be impressed by anything.

    I used it instead of Ps as a primary UI design tool about 7 or 8 years ago.

    I loved it, so light and fast. At the time I was a black sheep, no-one touched it for UI, now of course we have vector UI design tools such as Sketch that are so much better.

    Would I use it for core UI design now? No way. I still love it for non-ui vector work such as icons and logos though!

  • Posted to The Most Hated UI & UX Pattern of 2018, in reply to James Lane , Jul 03, 2018

    Dark UX patterns at work here. Just a few common observations:

    • No formal option to opt-out
    • Close icons that don't work
    • Obtrusive overlays that deliberately obscure content forcing the user to opt-in

    Struggling to see how this has benefitted the user, by introducing a formality of clicking "yes" and hence an extra layer of friction.

    GDPR cookie agreement popups. Especially with a faux close icon.

    Really, is there any contest here?

    I've always liked the work from https://thecodeine.com/

    In particular Golem https://golem.network/

    And Lisk did a nice launch earlier this year ;)

    Some solid suggestions! Interviewing is very much a game, you have to avoid getting attached to a potential role and get yourself out there. You don't win them all.

    As someone who hires and looks at candidate approaches, I would suggest, when faced with a task such as this, two parts to a presentation:

    1. Actionable, objective or evidence-based improvements to the existing interface.
    2. Something that throws out the current interface entirely (be brave) and makes the interviewer think completely differently.

    This proves you can think along the lines of current best practice (1) and be a valuable asset for future reform and transformation (2).

    Congratulations on your new role. Sounds like you bagged a winner.

    Kinda feels like they crammed a microsite's worth of content onto a single page.

    Some pleasing graphics though...
