Thanks for sharing this. Fell for one of these a while back, its interesting to learn where that's coming from and what's driving it. Sorry to say, seems like OP fell for the drop shipping tutorials.
Practice. Expose yourself to design work that others like. Collect examples of design you like. Eventually your brain can learn from a wide enough sample. Its improvable for anyone, but if you have an eye to begin with, you'll go a lot further because its easier.
I think Ratatouille said it best: "I have made no secret of my disdain for Chef Gusteau's famous motto: "Anyone can cook." But I realize, only now do I truly understand what he meant. Not everyone can become a great artist, but a great artist can come from anywhere."
So, no. Not everyone's cut out to be a designer. There are some people who simply do not have an eye for it. You can improve your eye for good or bad design, but not everyone can improve it enough to be a successful designer.
For sure. Well I mean, I feel like many designers would feel the same way about machine learning replacing any aspect of their job. I'm just not sure if machine learning is able to replace a tool, I think instead its better suited to (eventually) replacing some things the designers do.
Well, this is probably only relevant for a really niche area of design, but I could imagine that machine learning could be used to help type designers (those who create their own typefaces) craft both the vector letterforms and help them tune the kerning of the font.
Perhaps a typeface designer could give the computer 5-10 letters, and the computer could use machine learning to generate the rest of the typeface?
I'm not sure if typography is the best place to start here. I wonder if a computer might be better at cropping and enhancing images, or helping with web layouts.
Sometimes I do enjoy the detailed problem-solving of coding. There is something satisfying there. However, I just get more satisfaction from solving bigger problems.
I'm more of a big picture person: I know how something should work, what it should look like, and what the workflow might be. I'm far faster at creating my vision with design tools than I am with code tools. I don't like to get bogged down with CSS class specificity, div layouts, and fonts that won't load. Its just faster to create with dedicated tools.
Mad respect for admitting your mistakes and committing to improving them. This is the way companies should operate!
Where can I find a more full screenshot or demo? I use Jira but its a pretty heavily customized version my company has modified. I doubt its the most recent version.
I don't like them built into the UI unless the UI is super simple like Quartz. HOWEVER I do really like how Notion uses Emoji. That shit is dope.
This is an excellent page, perhaps the ideal way to disclose what Facebook could figure out about you. If you have a Patreon and make more of these for other services, I'd contribute to it.
