Let me try to break the ice.
I was wondering what's your opinion on the influence of classical graphic design education on today's interface designers. (When I say education I don't mean only art school, I mean anyone who knows their graphic design history and fundamentals.)
I'm noticing that more often than not, talented young UI designers of today don't pay too much mind to it. When someone mentions a grid, their first association is a CSS framework. Without this knowledge, are they missing out on anything? Would they produce better or more meaningful work if they had it?
On the other hand, are they perhaps better off without the burden of graphic design's legacy and its limitations, going head-first into designing for screens?

P.S. Keep up the good work, been a fan since the early days of OTG.
Sorry, I wasn't clear enough. The app is in fact absolutely running ONLY on this device. :) Perhaps in the future it will run on some other similar device, but right now I'd like to have my Sketch mockups easily viewable on that exact device.The device in question is Lenovo Phab 2 Pro.
Thanks for the link!
I am working specifically for one device and my employer expects assets and previews to follow its resolution and measures.
This particular phablet device has a resolution of 1440x2560 pixels so what does designing at 1x mean here?
Sure. But what do you think is the right choice then if you want to adhere to Material guidelines? Multiply the whole stickersheet by an amount or something completely different?
As an aside – should the Google Material design stickersheet and other resources be available in different sizes? Sounds wrong to have to resize it all the time if you are working at 1x etc.
I'm in Europe, can confirm it is #4267B2 here.
Got you. Thanks!
Edit: I am looking for something for clients rather than developer sign-off, hence the "look nice" part.
As a complete sidenote, do you use any special software/toolkit to create interaction flows (static ones)? It feels tiresome doing them in Sketch/Illustrator, and too ugly when done in diagramming software.
