  • Posted to ASK: What's the size of design team in your company?, Jun 25, 2019

    1) 1-3. Started with 1 (me) built up to 3. Went to 1. Currently back at 2 and adding another here soon.

    2) I'm the lead UX, one is a generalist (soon to be added), the other is focused on video and motion work.

    3) We support the entire company and multiple departments and teams for their work. We are centralized in the tech department among the dev teams.

    4) 300-500 people. I think we are in the 400 range right now. We are hiring a lot of people and I think I heard they want to get into the 600 range. Not sure what the dev/des ratio is but it's fairly high. 2/3 designers support 5 teams.

    I prefer small to mid-size places for this very reason.

    So they swapped out the vertical side drawer for horizontal filters at the top. I wonder what the data said to support that decision. I've done a similar move on a product in the past as well.

    Ditto. We use team drives.

    Well the release notes are not lying. The measuring system is better and improved, but with that, they also removed the snapping to guide/grid when holding down shift to maintain the x or Y coordinates. Super frustrating and annoying.

    Anyone else find it annoying they got rid of the smart/snap guides when moving objects and holding shift to maintain horizontal or vertical coordinates?

    Confirmed this is pretty cool.

    Certainly some great features in this release. Starting to really be a competitor to sketch and figma. The gamepad and keyboard triggers are pretty cool as well as the component overrides.
