  • Posted to What're some of the best portfolios you've seen?, in reply to Todd Padwick , Jun 27, 2017

    I've pretty much stopped collecting my own inspiration content for design except the rare occasional image sent to Pinterest (and usually only of a design element, not a whole website). I find I more often search for new inspiration when I need it rather than going back into the archives for stuff. The effort put into finding a decent service and maintaining my collection outweighed the benefit I got from it.

    Relax man, my comment was mostly a joke, although scrolling on PC is shit even in normal circumstances (not spiraling away into infinity).

    I think there is room for experimental websites that try something new like this. Particularly when there is great keyboard fallback using either your arrow keys or spacebar.

    If you really care about the scrolling on PC that much, Tweet the developer and tell him.

    That huge green banner if you aren't logged in is quite a turn-off though.

    I love the idea of the service, but something about it tells me not to invest the time.

    Is scrolling on PC ever enjoyable? I mean generally I agree scroll-jacking is bad, but I've seen far worse implementations than this.

    Also keyboard navigation works. Again wouldn't be an excuse on most sites, but I can appreciate the experiment.

    One day there will be an email creation and newsletter sending product that is actually enjoyable to use.

    And on that day people will stop using email just to spite us.

    I dunno, it's been used and accepted by ethnic minority groups for some time. I can't speak for anyone else, but I don't associate "minority" with anything negative.

    It's...so...beautiful. Not only the final site (which is great), but also their whole forward thinking attitude, willingness to share, and fantastic presentation.

  • Posted to The politics of designers - are creative people left-wing?, in reply to Sean Lester , Jun 14, 2017

    I don't think it means much, most people claim to be one thing and then are very much the other in practice.

    I know plenty of libertarian righties/lefties who are authoritarian when it suits them, or are libertarian in college and then authoritarian when they grow up (But are still designers).

    The most fun is when you tell a mixed group that libertarians are naive and authoritarians are dicks. Whooo fireworks!

    Yeah pretty much what I expected, but not what I wanted. Oh well.

    Did that rather strange video really need to use the generic exploding color image on the screen?
