  • Posted to Sketch for Teams beta is out now, in reply to Matthew O'Connor , Jul 25, 2019

    Same tried implementing it on projects twice and it just didn't solve our problems without causing a lot more work.

    Thats why I think Figma is heading int he right direction. No need for abstract and has versioning built in.

  • Posted to How do you implement text changes in your design files?, in reply to Mo Baghdadi , Jul 08, 2019

    This is the best I've come up with. In sketch its painful to work with a content editor. Its a lot of sloppy workflows: missing some details, lots of file syncing useless work, and always behind.

    The ideal workflow is they own the content, they can come in any time and update the text in the design I'm working on. Figma allows for this and currently is the only design tool that does. This is a huge oversight for other tools. I'd give up so many features for this. It eliminates workflow and version issues.

  • Posted to Jony Ive, iPhone designer, announces Apple departure, Jun 27, 2019

    When key people leave they always say they have full trust in the people replacing them but things always change.

    Ive is iconic and did a lot for Apple. In some ways we already see the effect of his departure in the product design choices in the last WWDC.

    If I had to make a wild guess, Id say that the product design quality will go down and the interaction design quality will go up.

    Thoughts? Other useless guesses?

  • Posted to Any designers using Framer X? Why or why not?, in reply to Josef Richter , Jun 19, 2019

    Thanks for sharing! One aspect that draws me to use but I'm still very unsure about is being able to pull components from production. I'd love to have parity with whats on production. (and in an ideal world visa versa but thats later)

    Finally a brand that actually took feedback from customer and iterated.

    This looks really great!

    Upvote from a design standpoint. Lots to learn here.

    • They do a great job of grabbing your attention and keeping it with the succinct video playing out the before and after.

    • They let you try it and experience the pain.

    • Low friction price.

    Areas to improve

    • Weird icon usage is distracting (especially the cloud one)
    • Clear CTA at bottom of page
    • The "I'm convinced" cta has really confusing placement.
