    I think this is extremely thoughtful and compelling. This is a very complex feature, and the article clearly shows how thoroughly they explored it.

    I'm very impressed, personally. This is how designers should explore product directions for companies they don't work for as design exercises. I would totally use this feature.

    These are amazing. Is there a link to the original reddit thread?

    I gotta say, I was ready to not like this, and I liked it.

    These are incredibly reasonable, true things. Practical shit. Nice work.

    Just keep in mind that most operating systems work under the assumption that your monitor is horizontal, and so their sub-pixel antialiasing for fonts isn't designed for vertical oriented pixels. What ends up happening is that text looks a little weird/blurry when vertical.

    If what I said sounds insane, check here: https://superuser.com/questions/252352/why-is-text-blurred-when-i-rotate-the-screen

    There's something about this that feels one step away from satire

    Seems like it. Klement Janbone is the account that keeps posting in DN. On Dribbble it says it's related to Flexxible, but then the description says it's Jan Cross.

    Seems just like some sort of strange spam.

  • Posted to Should I buy a Mac and switch to Sketch?, in reply to Steven Cavins , Apr 03, 2017

    I agree with this. I redesigned our product's entire front-end in Sketch so that I would get familiar with Sketch and feel out the positives/negatives. I definitely went through some teething pains, but Sketch is really phenomenal software, even with some rough edges. I only use Photoshop for bitmap editing at this point. I still use Illustrator for icons/complex vectors because Sketch's boolean operations just aren't nearly as strong (makes sense, Illustrator is 30 years old).

    I haven't tried Figma though, and a number of people on the bleeding edge are big fans (as can be seen by this thread). Adobe XD is also going through heavy development, and may be compelling software in a bit more than a year. However, right now its feature set is very limited in comparison to Sketch.

    This is pretty well written, but I will say there are complex systems that are going to be necessarily complex to use. There are no hard and fast rules in life.

    But the conclusion is ultimately true, make your user interactions as easy as possible.
