  • Posted to Lets talk about a strange Designer Bubble happening in the Middle of America - $120K for a Junior designer? What R Everyone's thoughts?, Oct 15, 2019

    120K on west coast, Chicago and NYC seems pretty normal. In Omaha/Denver probably not so much.

    wow - this sucks for Hims as they probably paid a consultant to create a genuine experience and design. What they got was a decent ripoff. However, some of the minor changes actually damage the experience and potentially inflict unnecessary injury on a user. As point 5 accurately communicates. Nice write up. You're far too kind to Hims. I would hope that you've reached out to them with a link back to your article.

    Are these jobs sourced through Folyo or are you scrapping positions off other sites?

    I fell for this once. basically its a 45 minute class from a visual designer who wants you to sign up for her UX class. It's a pretty uninformed 45-minute infomercial. which I think technically is against the rules... right?

    Thanks Ivan!

    We do a lot of prototypes, including form field input pick lists, etc. These kinds of interactions don't seem possible in Figma. Figma also seems to be primarily for mobile viewports, which is about 1/3rd of the work we do, the desktop is still king for us.

    I like the idea that the team would be able to simultaneously work on the same file as we're somewhat distributed with most working from home or remote. Having a design library and files stay up to date seems like a dream.

    I have to wonder if the browser interfaces are a godsend or a curse. When zeplin isn't available the team can still work, that wouldn't be true if figma died. I think we're all sick of the subscription model pricing, which would be another drawback. do you feel like the licensing make its more expensive the sketch?

    What about the transition and all the work we have in sketch and axure today?

    I have been looking at figma off and on to see if its a good fit for my team. I want to keep an open mind about it, but I can't find a single compelling reason to even put it into an evaluation. What am I missing? what makes this a UX tool that's better than Axure/Sketch?

    I love this site and have for years. It'll be a shame to lose it. Reddit can be a wasteland and over political. I'll join you there but it won't be the same... is there no way to keep DN alive?
