  • Posted to What has been your experience with WebFlow?, Nov 12, 2018

    I used WebFlow for a one-off website that I wanted to put some animations together for when our usual developer couldn’t accommodate a deadline.

    After doing literally one site in it - decided to migrate everything to WebFlow. I have some decent front end chops so it was super easy for me to pick up. Another designer on our team jumped in with no code experience and was rolling great work out almost immediately.

    The UI being almost Sketch-like with the edit panel makes it easy. The responsive view swapper thing is a great time saver. So awesome. They have CRAZY amounts of how-to content which is really helpful. Tons of show and tell.

    I did find a few small caveats: - swapping between elements you want to style and then add interactions to is cumbersome at times. Might be because my structure isn’t great, but either way it’s arduous. - some responsive sizes don’t seem to display the same in real world devices. Have had to find and fix visual bugs a few times. - e-commerce isn’t available yet. You have to get into the beta.

    Overall, this tool is “it” for me as far as web development goes now. I started making my portfolio in it too. I like WebFlow a lot. This tutorial was one the one that got me intrigued:

    What’s insane to me is that they didn’t test this before launching it so widely.

    Launch something totally radical, not have a clue what’s going to happen and then conversions dip... then fix?

    Yeesh.

    Do you have a video outlining the interaction improvements in X? (Similar to a video like this?). I'm very stoked to possibly kill Principle/Flinto from my workflow. :)

    how small and helpless users are against large corporations

    No one is small against these entities. Literally just don't use the app. Delete the app. Enjoy your own life. No one needs any of this shit.

    You can go all the way to bottom of the site and never see the actual thing you'll use. Also same on "features" page.

    But... has 3D so... it's totally awesome and great.

  • Posted to Why is this trend taking over?, Feb 28, 2018

    I could be wrong, but I think this style gained significant popularity when Meg Robichaud (https://dribbble.com/megdraws) introduced a bunch of new marketing work when she joined Shopify. This style was the foundation of that work.

    It might’ve been sooner, but I remember seeing it really take off after that work started dropping on Dribbble. Again, I could be amiss, but that’s how I recall it.

    I like it personally.

    The ole' Reverse Uber. Started with X, now they're onto Black/Premium. Worked for Tesla too.

    Only a matter of time before food delivery (not the weird home dining thing they did in '14) is part of the process, then entertainment. Maybe they'll do airfare before this... guess we'll see.

    "Power" users aren't feeling it lately either and it's costing them.
