Are you just upset you didn't get to check a box yes?
Why ask anything? I want to know if minorities and women are equally represented in the design industry. Why does it bother you?
This is part of the reason the question is asked this way. I'm not concerned about what kind of minority people are, simply whether or not they identify as a minority.
Why do you believe this question is invalid?
Keep in mind the survey respondents are international, so this question is more worded to understand representation across the board.
That said, current results show minorities make up only 32% of respondents and women/non-binary only 24%. For those who believe diversity is an important aspect of building a strong design team, this number definitely shows how challenging it is to hire designers from diverse backgrounds.
The survey also should have probably included a question to understand financial diversity, especially considering how well paid some designers are these days.
Simply trying to understand what minority and gender representation looks like in the industry. Why do you feel that's “sketchy”?
We should have another Design on the Rocks in SF before too long. We'll be sure to post it up once it's organized/scheduled!
All of these resources are helpful, but I wish Sketch would just let you change the hotkeys to match PhotoShop. It would instantly make the application that much easier to use.
What about the trend of the dissing the things that diss the trends?
Sketch seems really great and all, but I am kind of getting tired about seeing post after post about tools.
Can't we talk about design without being concerned about what applications people are using? If you can make awesome stuff in Microsoft Paint, do it. If you love Fireworks or Photoshop or Adobe After Effects or Corel Draw or GIMP, just use it.
All that matters is the end result.
