    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.

  • Posted to Designers, how do you feel about the use of emojis as parts of the UI?, May 14, 2018

    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.

    Wonder if anyone has a screenshot? I quite like what they have now but I've never seen their site prior to today.

    This is the most sensible comment in this entire thread.

    I'm struggling to understand why those words are unhelpful. I think most designers learn pretty early on that people's impressions of a design might end up mattering more than the intent or the content. Hell, gut reactions to how a design "feels" can often be the most useful feedback, even when its hard to voice the reason behind that feeling.

    If I design a new innovative package for some salad dressing, but other people's gut reactions place it closer to being a laundry detergent, I'd hope to hear words like "soap" or "cleaning" in the critique.

    I think that's kind of what happened here: Some felt that the site ranged too close to a fashion or modeling site, and that made it less successful as a design portfolio. Isn't that worthwhile feedback to discuss, whether one agrees with it or not?

    Help me understand where I'm wrong or let me know your thoughts :)

    Feeling out of the loop. What happened in the other day's thread? Is it still up?
