Figma seems like it could be promising. I adopted sketch fairly early and dealing with bugs just feels like a part of using sketch, but it's gotten a lot better. Not sure if I'm willing to be an early adopter for Figma...
I'm confused on how you used both applications. I've always been a fan of how robust Axure is, but it's so damn clunky that I don't do much animation in it. Would be really interested in what you did here...
Middleman is incredibly easy to spin up and gives you a TON out the gate. Coding your own like Ken M mentioned is fine, but if you want to leverage things like Sass, auto-prefixer, auto-reload, minifying, gzip...Middleman just gives you that. You can still hard code every file if you want to, still easier IMO then spinning up your own site from scratch.
I started using Circular for my brand a few years ago and now it's become the new Brandon Grotesque....
I hated on Times New Roman when I was in college and one of my design professors set me straight. I think it's so funny that as designers we tend to hate on fonts that become super popular. EWW COMIC SANS....come on, it's one of the most famous typefaces of all time. I think that deserves a little credit...
I first viewed it on my 27'' screen so at first I didn't get that impression. After reading some of the comments I resized my browser and I totally get what you all are saying. A couple of media queries to change the font size for smaller screens would have been a wise choice imo.
I think the choice of using Times New Roman and the brutalist approach to design is actually a good font choice for the design. I kinda dig it
I agree, it's def a step in the right direction. Check out this list of design systems assembled by Alex Pate https://github.com/alexpate/awesome-design-systems
Hmmm, very interesting insight, I could totally see that being a thing. Also, I wonder if it's part of the reason so many apps are free with ads/in-app purchases. I know for games, they probably make hand over fist for in-app purchases.
If you go to the homepage, there's a link to an employee login...anyone got a good guesses for the username and password?
Agreed! Great way to start out my day :)
