  • Posted to Designer Lynx — a comprehensive list of links for all your UI needs, in reply to Stevie E , Nov 01, 2017

    Bookmarked! :) Probably want to update the page title, it has "linx" instead of "lynx."

    There are special tabs settings in the documentation (e.g., "spacegraytabsnormal": true). https://github.com/kkga/spacegray/blob/master/README.md

    Not a fan of the primary colors, especially with that shade of grey. It reminds me a lot of logos from the early eighties, and not in a timeless way.

    The small, seemingly insignificant addition of .0 makes your software sound more like a math problem than an invaluable tool or novel piece of art.

    Your users are smarter than you give them credit for.

    Huh?

    Theres a lot of assumptions going on in this article.. most notably that customers actually care about versioning numbers at all. Unless you're familiar with the versioning system, its far more likely that you look at the comments with the update.

    As for this:

    When was the last time you heard someone say a phrase like “Quotebook 3 point zero point zero is so great!”? Never.

    Most people just refer to the major release, or the update to the major release. Why bog customers down with technical info they're unlikely to care about?

    Naw Its just the angle of the thumb is lined up with the side of the hand and slightly out of focus.

    Totally unrelated to the product but the hand in the photograph is giving me the heebie jeebies.

    I know that its easy to set up but is it really secure? It was my understanding that WordPress was one of the least secure CMSs due to its popularity and plugin misuse.

    The OS X Dashboard is the bane of my existence. I can't even count how many times I've accidentally scrolled to it on my laptop. Really frustrating for a feature I literally never use.

    I liked the overall concept of this article, but I gotta say, I found the comment about choosing the "young" designer as the right hire a bit disparaging.

    I don't think thats a fair juxtaposition, and while I completely admire maintaining a certain degree of idealism and keeping a forward momentum, design happens with real-world constraints and limitations, and discounting that is somewhat insulting.

    Articles with this kind of tone make me worry about advancing my career in design. While there definitely needs to be flexibility and open-mindedness with tech and digital, these don't discount design thinking and principles. It was hard not to feel like this article was a little ageist and all the points he made in the beginning of the article about maintaining flexibility and generalism were almost negated by his comments about digital natives being better.

    Just my two cents as a young designer.
