Should designers code?
Could someone kindly offer a TL;DL?
This is effin awesome!
Loving it both in terms of thinking outside the box, and execution. It's things like this that make me excited about work. Top marks guys!
Is the title click-bait? Yes. Does the article make a reasoned argument and some valid points? Yes.
Only the blindest of the Apple loyal (I'm an Apple fan FYI), could deny that most of the points raised by Topolsky are on the money. This isn't just clickbait, it's something worth discussing, surrounding the most influential design company of our lifetimes.
Also... who really uses the Status feature on their WhatsApp anyway? And now it's turning into an Instagram story thing? I don't get this.
Short Rant In fact, this is something that generally seems to happen to apps that do one thing so well. Upgrading an app to support a ton of other features is a pattern you see, when there is no need. Let the app continue to be awesome at txting. It's all you need it for.
Interesting. But I feel like I'm missing something when it comes to the Sports Reference design work he's done? Is it just me, or are those sites an affront to all your sensibilities...
Looks ace! I've signed up.

Do not proceed unless you've already seen S07E01 or equally, don't care about GoT.
The barrier to entry to being a designer is so low, that the industry is jam packed with people who can't take criticism and take themselves too seriously. I almost wish it was harder to become a "designer".
Depending on your calculator needs, the fastest Mac calculator is comfortably using Spotlight.
You can do arithmetic right in the Spotlight text box, it's fantastic! It does percentages too. I use it daily and there is no faster way.
