    Visually = fun

    Functionally = I scrolled down well before the animation finished

    As long as you explain the position, go for it.

    Calling yourself a "Creative Director" instead of "Lead Designer" could open the path for many other (better) job opportunities in the future. Don't limit yourself with a title. People saying no are just gatekeeping.

    This is also the problem with titles

    Reddit's new use of IBM Plex ruined it for me. Not great as a product-wide web font.

    Would be interesting to see the political logo matchups and who won. Wonder how important "good" design is, verses traditional political sign brutalism.

    I went to a design in politics talk a year ago featuring one of Hillary's marketing leads and they were baffled at the success of the MAGA design campaign.

    There's a block button for a reason. Use it.

    The site is nice and all, but I'm struggling to understand the product without visually seeing it.

  • Posted to The new Apple Watch 4 face is a design crime, Sep 12, 2018

    Not that I agree or disagree with this take, but my initial reaction to the new Apple Watch face reveal was a positive one. It displayed a ton of information in a symmetrical, circular format while also staying aesthetically pleasing. Was kinda jealous, actually.

    After reading this article, information does seem to exist to fit the design, rather than vice versa. Very Dribbble-esque. One could argue quick-access to justify the insane amount of data displayed at once, but do I really need UVI levels or another timezone? Interested in the customization options.

    I don't think it's a "design crime", but I'll have to use this thing in action before forming a real opinion.
