  • Posted to Zest Icons, in reply to Mike Stevenson , Mar 03, 2019

    As an interesting counter-point, there's Parakeet's Primaries set: http://www.parakeet.co/primaries/

    It's $200 for 648 icons.

    Even though I haven't yet bought it, the icons in the set are so incredibly well-made that I was seriously considering that at many times. Zest... is not of the same quality, sorry.

    Interesting - last year I moved back to Things after using OmniFocus for about a year. The main reason was that I felt that I spent too much time tending to my tasks, moving, checking, reviewing. With Things I have far fewer features, and it made me more focused and productive.

    I investigated the (probably) unintentionally released SketchCloud / Sketch Online:

    What I learned about SketchCloud from Sketch.app bundle

    Personally, I would love a first-party solution to a problem that Zeplin solves.

    Awesome! But haven't they run out of Twitter authentication tokens?

    If they have, it means they can't sell the app to new customers, and they are doing this update just because they are wonderful people, not for any future profit.

    Interesting "what", but very much missing the "why".

    Feedback:

    • What are the major wins of such interface? Recreating many native apps in "iPod mode" would be a serious effort, only meaningful if there is a lot to gain.

    • Having sapphire crystal as screen and premium leather for everything else would make the price of such accessory close to $150. I think it clashes with the appeal and demographic - novelty / nostalgia, cheap-ish gift for ex-iPod-owners. I would target the manufacturing cost to <$50.

    • Ignoring the price, how would a touchscreen work through two glass screens? I think the only material thin enough to let electric charge through would be thin protective plastic. (same question goes to the fake click wheel - how would you transfer its touches?)

    So, yeah (: Nice graphics, but I think a lot of the value of concepts lie in the... concept. The idea. The thinking behind the thing. Drawing is an effective way to tranfer these ideas... but without the "why" there is very little to transfer.

    Sketch is now legit! (:

    Very nice resources. Would be great if they also included new round icon grid, visible in Xcode.

    Edit: new icon grid is among PSD files, just not in Sketch.

  • Posted to JavaScript library enabling SVG icons to morph from one to the other., in reply to Riho Kroll , Nov 27, 2014

    They are morphing. Try to set duration to 5000 and notice how paths transform.

    Most of it looks pretty bad, though. The fact that it looks like "fade/zoom/twist" is not a good sign.

    I like this one a lot! One thing that I find distracting about current design is round auto-detected icons for posts. Some subtle indication for discussion posts might be nice, but graphical element demands a lot of attention. This redesign manages attention very well!

    For those with Yosemite and dark menu bar, I recommend 9% black (go to Desktop & Screen Saver > Solid Colors > Custom Color, and in Grey Scale Slider pick 9%).

    It makes menu bar blend into desktop. Looks really cool to me: http://cl.ly/XVvE
