    That's a good solution for another problem (doesn't Dribbble do this already?)

    Say you're a black designer (could be any minority for that matter) and you've experience racism/ or racial prejudiced at work, wouldn't you feel better discussing it with other black designers who might have experienced the same thing?

    I’m curious to hear your solution.

    Not sure I agree with the animation part.

    Animation can be a very easy way to communicate an idea especially now that most of the prototyping tools are either too diffficult to use or simply inadequate.

    Then again even the over-the-top animations that you see on Dribbble can be good for conception even if they’ll never get built. As designers we should think free and wild.

    Eventually some of these wild concepts become the norm.

    Let me guess, your probably white? You probably haven’t faced the daily challenges that being black comes with.

    I once went for a job interview and the first comment the guy made was .. “oh I didn’t know you were black, you’re the first black designer I’ve ever come across”.

    Let’s stop pretending racial boundaries and prejudices don’t exist. I think it’s a great thing that black designers are sticking together. Having and knowing there is someone with the same background as you, doing the same thing as you’re doing can help a lot.

    This is something that you might take for granted if you’re white.

    It’s better to build your own rig, and get a decent Dell 4K display! You can do all this for half the price of a Mac.

    If you’re looking for something fancy, you can also get one of the new Surface Studios (if you can afford and and you don’t need a lot of horse power)

    If you’re into Sketch you might be out of luck though but that’s just about it. Figma works on and all Adobe applications work ok windows !

    I clicked the article with genuine interest because I thought someone had found a way of animating and exporting to Svgs in Ae and not through Lottie!

    Do yourself a favor and read the article.

    Sounds rather sneaky way to get clicks.

    Because you’re not actually animating “svg icon” in Aftereffects?

    I suggest you read more about about their Fluent Design System, this will make more sense.

    Their aim is to create a cohesive design language that cuts across traditional desktop, mobile applications and mixed reality

    Hasn’t the dead horse been beaten enough? Hopefully there wouldn’t be part IV
