Hey Dustin. I´m sorry, sometimes is difficult to understand how things are said. So it´s my fault :)
I´m not invalidating anything. That is what you say. The quality of her work is out of any discussion. And, thanks for judging my work. It´s funny you talk about fallacies and finish your post with an authority fallacy trying to invidate my opinion because my work is not so relevant as her. I´m stop writing here because I don´t want to be disrespectful.
By the way. I wrote this yesterday in one of the comment I made... Maybe I don´t like some parts of the web but I can see the value that it has and I´m sure I can learn a couple of things of how she talks about herself and how to make your personal site.
So, please, stop judging me.
It´s your problem is you want to convert this in something related to gender, men and women. So, please, don´t make me part of your prejudices.
Maybe if the focus was in the work we talk about the work...
It´s beautiful. I´ve enjoyed the trip.
I agree when you say about being more than a designer and sure she is amazing and awesome and super ambitious and profesional. As Nice Shoes says, the first impression is... different. After that you realize Helen is an amazing profesional. No doubt about it, but you don´t need to show you as a H&M model in a fashion comercial to prove it (ask Paula Scher, for example). So, yes, I call that ego. It´s like the classical stereotype of "the cool designer".
And not doing that do not means that you are a photoshop monkey at all.
By the way, It´s difficult to find the tone in not your native language. I´m using smileys because of that and remarking that what I´m saying is just an opinion because we are talking about the work of other person. So, I´m saying if something like me or not. Be as sarcastisc as you want :)
Maybe I don´t like some parts of the web but I can see the value that it has and I´m sure I can learn a couple of things of how she talks about herself and how to make your personal site.
Well, perhaps you are assuming things about me :)
I think culture and the value of who you are is important and a part of you as a profesional. I understand the concept and you have to be very... I can´t find the word in English if you put as a hero content a video or you dancing, but I think is good. Anyway, IMHO the way the content is balanced is not so awesome or super cool (just my opinion)
I can see this person has a very strong personality and also has the ability to make it a very strong point and I´m sure that is something that really work in her case but I think that is too much. When I saw the web I only could think in... EGO. But is different and here I am, talking about it with you, so I guess the goal is reached... but I don´t like :)
At the end is only an opinion and who cares...
It´s something interesting... but clients are really interested in your personal live? I´m not sure. I think who you are is also important but not more important than your work. When I´m in the other side and need to hire a profesional to do some work I don´t care about her last fitness competition.
Anyway, This is not a critic. I like the website and everyone is free to choose the way to be exposed to the world :)
See how designers deal with the ego is always interesting :)
I agree with that. Feedback is always welcome but there are some opinions that are not just feedback.
Imagine when new Tesla was released people started complaining about the car do not fly, because that was what they were waiting for. Then why should buy a Tesla if I have to drive on the same road? That my point. Maybe will be reasons to use Studio even the software was not a new revolution in the way we design and connect vector with code.
I will be happy the day when my designs will be converted in real code by clicking a button but maybe that is not so easy to do wright now. Honestly, I don´t know.
English is not my native language and sometime is difficult for me to find the tone to express myself. It´s nice to chat and share opinions and different points of view.
