It really misses crucial information. As it is right now, one could question the existence of the website at all when there is instagram.
so do I - yet he is right to point this out, because many people do that.
that's not what I meant.
Intuitive understanding of Aestheticism are what people call Talent in this Context and that might help to learn that Craft
I just wanted to say that what people call "Talent" in the Context of Design is that. When people talk about a talented designer, that is usually the property they want to describe. Not that it is not learnable. Of course it is learnable.
I am of the strong conviction that talent is just something that can make learning a new skill more accessible.
Design is a Craft, learnable like any other. Intuitive understanding of Aestheticism are what people call Talent in this Context and that might help to learn that Craft - but it remains something that anyone can learn.
Visually I think it looks a bit outdated - or to be more specific, not in line with trends - but I think that's a good thing.
It looks great on smaller screens, but something about the spacing doesn't translate well into the bigger screens so it feels off.
There are almost no hover states. Not even on the main navigation. Just when you expand one of the navigational items, they have a hover state. Why is that?
quick on the shaming, aren't we.
that is a far stretch.
That’s why, more than ever, movements like Web-Brutalism that have the boldness and the courage to question those “rational aesthetics”, dictated by science and technology, are very relevant.
Movements like Brutalism in Web UI's exist because creative minds are desperately trying to break out of increasingly stronger trends. Trends more then before dominate what we consider "beautiful enough" nowadays. Something is considered good design by subconsciously determining how much it has adapted current trends in visual design.
Yes, we need to break free from that, but I don't think it is a political choice.
"Speak your mind" - as long as you fit the mould we made.
this truly should be part of the core functionality. Great stuff.
