  • Posted to Framer is going web based with multi-user editing, in reply to Diego Nunes , Nov 21, 2019

    This. This is the big oversight by not just the other design tools but most designers themselves.

    When you work alone you don't feel it but as soon as you start collaborating with other designers, content writers, PM, etc. The workflow goes to hell. I spent days researching this at Intuit because it was getting so bad and everyone just dealt with it.

    With a multiuser, theres no need for complex versioning. 1 source of truth, always up to date, 1 tool for design, prototype, sharing and delivering.

    My hope is with Framer X, for some teams, it will allow for more direct design+code collab, where what you design is very close to end product because it is code.

  • Posted to Why does design for children’s websites have to be so chaotic?, in reply to Ivan Braun , Oct 31, 2019

    In my mind its like sugar. You can put tons of sugar into something and kids will love it but its not good for them. Since the harm here isn't as visible its rampant and will be hard to curb.

  • Posted to Your thoughts on Design Education, Sep 30, 2019

    I'll add that I've interviewed many designers who paid good money to be part of a bootcamp (some 4 weeks, others 12) where they were not given the baseline tools to get a job. Their portfolio work was a huge group project, they didnt know how to prepare their portfolio, and had big gaps in their process. I don't even think that bootcamps are bad or that its impossible to give someone the education needed to land an entry lvl job in 3 months. But they need to be robust enough to know what the minumum needs of a business hiring an entry lvl designer is.

  • Posted to How does music make you more productive?, Sep 15, 2019

    Its funny, I created a study/work playlist for myself and now it has over 10,000 followers on Spotify but I've found its not always good for me. It depends on the activity.

    Reading, writing, working on flows, UI, or general work stuff: I can't listen to music. I get distracted or I can't think clearly.

    For heads down production type work, updating mocks, making art, or menial tasks: Music enhanced my work and allows me to be more productive.

    Edit: My playlist if you're interested:

    This was such a helpful write up! At my previous company it was much larger and we ran into the same problems you write about at the start of the article.

  • Posted to Is human-centered design causing us suffering?, Sep 04, 2019

    Some quick reactions

    1. I love the depth of thoughtfulness and reflection. Its hard to tear away from the status quo and provide enough of an argument to change minds.

    2. I think human-centeredness can still provide the same needed outcome. It just matters the criteria. Find out what people want and give it to them or find out what they need and give it to them. If what they need isn't what they want, thats part of the challenge.

    3. Overall we need to bring our values to work, we need to bring our values to friendships, we need to bring our values to government. The only way to do this is to learn how to argue well, to keep an open mind, and tolerate others with differing views.

    And even worse is just a bar with no key and none of them are the same type of thing....
