    That frickin’ crank is amazing. Whoever had the balls to go through with that deserves a raise. I want to try it now!

    Yea I’m sure it’s a challenge. Esp w how complex font payment models are. My initial assumption was I’d click add to cart then make the purchase decisions after that. Congrats on the launch though — checking out fonts was a great experience.

    Hmm I was looking for an "ADD TO CART" button at the top (I think for Inkwell script) but I couldn't find it at the time. I scrolled down and didn't see it at all, either. I see now you have to actually click the packages on the left and then the SHOW PRICES -> SHOW STYLES button transitions to an ADD TO CART button.

    The confusion was the top white part was for pricing/sorting "actions" (setting my license parameters) and the lower half with the font previews was for "browsing". This was difficult because Add to Cart is progressively revealed only after you click the package. I would consider keeping add to card highly visible all the time.

    Yeah exactly. Instead of another post about how dead DN is find something interesting to share. It just needs fresh content. Really not that complex of a problem.

    Looks great! I was having some difficulty figuring out how to actually purchase a font with it today, though (I wasn't signed in and assume I have to be signed in to buy?).

    Browsing the fonts is quite enjoyable. One small thing: I wish the sticky header got out of the way when I was scrolling to really let the fonts themselves take centre stage.

    Awesome case study. THIS is how you build great products — by not building bad ones.

  • Posted to Ask DN: How important is reading as a creative person?, May 18, 2019

    Reading as an activity is wonderful for enhancing focus and relaxing away from the stress of everyday life. I wouldn’t read in the sole purpose of curating ideas. That seems to me to make reading a chore at the behest of your ambition rather than a hobby you enjoy in and of itself.

    I read business books and recently got in to fiction. Business books are mostly fodder. Fiction is a lot of fun.

  • Posted to Is box model necessary for design tools and design spec handoff?, May 17, 2019

    We just have padding and margin rules for our design layouts and that translates in to Zeplin pretty well. That being said there are... human error factors that can creep in to this, though. But we're using he box model anyway.

    The point of a logo is salience—and copying AirBnB, a very well-known international brand, feel counterproductive to that

    Figma is quickly becoming known as the “off-the-rack” UIKit factory tool to me.
