  • Posted to How to not suck at design, a 5 minute guide for the non-designer., May 02, 2017

    This is great for all of us who are not designers by training or trade. I used a lot of these principles when redesigning https://pageproofer.com

    Interesting idea. I'm 100% with you on the idea of killing screenshots and marked up docs to tell designs/developers what is wrong with a web page. I'm not sure it helps though when the person who spots the issue has no idea how to fix.

    I attacked that same problem for a different angle. I developed an app that gets embedded on a website and allows people to add "sticky notes" when they spot a problem right on the page. Other users get notified instantly about the issue so they can fix it and important info about browser/screen size/device gets added to the note. The notes are pinned to specific page elements so they move as the element moves on the page (great for responsive websites). Checkout https://pageproofer.com to see how it works.

    This is a service that I launched a few years ago but just recently overhauled the entire marketing site.

    It allows designers and developers to leave feedback about content changes, issues and bugs right on a website. No more back and forth emails with clients, tracking items in a spreadsheet or using complicated bug trackers. Just spot an issue, click and leave some feedback.

  • Posted to Atlassian acquires Trello for $425M, Jan 09, 2017

    Trello and JIRA (Atlassian's flagship) are two very different products aimed at two very different markets. There is a little cross over in the 'boards' but nothing that would suggest Trello gets pulled into JIRA. In all likelihood Atlassian lets Trello keep running as it has, it gives them a wider appeal for project management, from simple lists and cards to full blown issue and project management. The two products I think compliment each other. IMO Atlassian has done a pretty good job of making their services and products better considering how complex they are. I use JIRA and Bitbucket on a very regular basis and both are better than many competing services.
