    Anybody got screenshots of what I'm supposed to be seeing? I've just got the design that seems to have been up for a good while now; similar to the aesthetic they have on dribbble.

    No comment on the weird signup form behavior? The first field is labeled "First name" but on focus it switches to "Legal first name"... that's a little funky.

    This was a fantastic breakdown as always though, learned a lot!

    Really like this, lots of great content and polish.

    One thing I noticed, the only way into your case studies is to click the little 'CASE STUDY' badge, that felt a little unintuitive, maybe make the image and title clickable too?

    Well pretty much but what were you expecting? This is just another internal framework, I guess kinda like Lightning Design System

    The scroll-jacking caught me out because its so delayed I wasn't sure what was going on at first.

    The custom letter treatments for each project are neat although it reminded me of what the agency Huge does on their site.

    I think that designers do their work to improve quality of life. If you share my assumption of that, then you already understand that in order to improve lives in 2017 it’s a good idea to understand the way technology works.

    To simplify everything above just think of what you would recommend to any 15-year old somewhere in Kazakhstan who likes design and tech? I’d say ”learn code

    To understand "the way technology works" doesn't mean you can replicate that yourself (i.e. code).

    And to the second paragraph, if that 15-year goes and learns to code I would expect their design skills to be left in the dust.

    Farmers should know how to build their own tractors.

    Nods head vigorously

    Tools like FramerJS are fun because they enable designers to show a bit more flair and get a bit scrappy in code if they want to, and its really useful for showing complex interactions. But it's whole world away from all the intricacies of a production environment.

    My thoughts exactly Barry, there are some really talented folks out there who can whip up great design and quality code blindfolded, but most of the time it's better to specialise and be really really good at one thing and have top-level knowledge of the wider skillsets.
