Very reminiscent of the legendary Saul Bass. Absolutely love the grit and style of this video.
Haha, thanks Dirk! Tried to make something useful :)
Could you explain what you mean about devs having better knowledge of patterns? I'm not sure I follow!
I don't disagree. I do this that your method is best for in-house dev teams. The redlining ideas I lay out are probably more suitable for agencies who [often] work with the client's dev team.
That said, redlines should never be the end-all-be-all. Even a quick sync between design and dev is helpful.
Thanks for your thoughts, Matt!
Coming soon to Sketch :)
Wanted to jump in and give you some help.
Hope that helps! Jon

Yes, of course! And that's a fair point.
I guess my argument is that maybe this promo vid was just another way to market their product to users. The feature was just the vehicle for delivering the Framer brand.
From my thread below:
There was a BMW commercial years and years ago that was advertising the fact that the headlights actually turn with the vehicle. Obviously the commercial wasn't just zoomed in on the lights...I got to see the whole car, driving around mountain roads. I could see the headlights turning with the car. I could see how it handled the road. I could see the interior. I could see the whole brand of that BMW model.
I'd never seen the vehicle before. But after that very specific feature commercial, I wanted it. Not because of the lights. The lights were just an excuse to show off the entire car.
(disclaimer: I never did get that BMW...still rocking my 2008 Honda Accord!)
