This is CRAZY that you just posted this... I was just having a conversation with a number of developers who are mechanical keyboard fanatics yesterday on how I wanted to do 'exactly this'! What keyboard did you use as the base?
Edit* I see the link for the keyboard now.. perfect! Thank you
I highly disagree with the placement of the Like/Save(Bucket) actions. The human eye (in America) scans left-to-right, and then top-to-bottom. In this case.. my eye looks at the image, and my next inclination is to continue to 'look down' the page.. and there.. they prioritized their social sharing over the main actions a power user would be doing.
P.S. Don't even get me started on what this does to 'image' quality across the entire site.
Anyone familiar with their design team structure? Is one designer responsible for their web designs? I'd love to find their information if anyone has it available. Another killer job.
I couldn't disagree more.
Design systems will simplify the job of designers, but I think designers roles will continue to become more important, and from that, I believe the quantity of 'design jobs' will increase.
My comment made the cut!
Don't get me wrong, once you understand the core concepts of design, picking a proper tool that will work for your workflow is insanely important. Not understanding design and blaming it on the 'tools' is what I meant to cover.
I also dont agree with your non-digital answer of 'painting a skyscaper with a toothbrush' ... We are talking about digital tools here that have the same functions. All the programs above draw a rectangle, ovals, and lines.
And yes.. tools matter for interacting with other people and making deadlines.. but none of that is a currently stated problem from the original post. I have personally used photoshop, affinity designer, sketch, illustrator, gimp, and figma to design different projects... I can switch between them all without thinking twice... because they all do the same thing.
The Principal App functions basically exactly like your demonstrating above, but yes, this would be an awesome feature for Sketch itself.
Her work is incredible, have seen a few of the completed pieces.
