Interesting! Would you mind emailing me? Would love to hear more about that... email@example.com
Excited to share a big update to Purple.pm! If you're not familiar with us, we're a planning and documentation tool for design teams - all of your notes, lists, designs, and prototypes can all live in one place so it's easy to work together. Happy to answer any questions.
Ooooo that's really helpful, thanks Kyle!
I review a bunch of portfolios in my spare time, so I've seen ones that are great vs ones that are bad. Thought a lot of the advice in here was spot on. Figured I'd share this for those who are in the middle of that portfolio journey...
Speaking of which - one thing that I've been meaning to put together. Does anyone know of a library of "good" portfolios? I always want to share good ones with folks I'm helping out but of course, I haven't saved any of the great ones I've seen when I really should have.
This isn't Slack, but Designer's Guild is fantastic - they don't allow for self promotion. Most of the posts are questions that spur some great discussions. https://www.facebook.com/groups/designguild/
Oooo very interesting point - that totally makes sense as to why the pointer cursor was used so heavily. The principle is less relevant these days as we have rich web applications that mirror desktop apps, but when the web was first starting (and when conventions were being established) it was certainly much more focused on content.
Yeah I'm really confused by this series of posts. What's the harm in making buttons use cursor:pointer, especially when most of the internet does this? I don't agree that it's reasonable to say that every button should look distinctly like an old fashioned button. Visual styles are not inconsequential.
Wow - well done on this article Evil Martians team! Really appreciate how many code samples you show. Sharing with my team.
FWIW I got it pretty instantly and thought it was hilarious ¯_(ツ)_/¯ . It's a joke about how appearances are so important in business.
Oh hey - I just read another article that's pretty much provides clear answers to the above article.
Be nice. Or else.
