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.
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.
Omission of labels was problematic/convenient.
Typographic choices seemed centered on single glance wow-factor and not usable and efficient type sizing/fonts for the use case.
Yeah all these visual changes are pretty lame, but what'd they do to the product messaging?
It used to be very clear and succinct as to what it was and what it did. Now it's so overly-simplified that it's abstract. Your product is messages, inbox and articles... so its gmail blog? WTF
This stuff isn't that hard. Why make it that way?
