    Are you being serious George? Not very nice is it. Also, your other comment is completely wrong as well. Mods get paid nothing, for anything. All moderation is done in our spare time.

    One of the main rules on DN is "Be nice". You're falling very short of this.

  • Posted to Google - UX Playbook for Retail - Collection of best practices to delight your users, Apr 10, 2019

    Just looking at this again, I think a lot of it is just personal preference.

    Also this: "After looking at several hundred retail sites, we realized that there were certain universal UX elements that helped create a frictionless shopping experience" - shows that they have just looked at what everyone else does, not what they think is best practice.

  • Posted to ASK DN: What do you think of my first enterprise identity design?, Feb 14, 2019

    I also read 'IEELVAR'. How would it look in black and white? Could you make out the logo still?

    I think the backwards 'K' works great as a monogram, but maybe not in the word as it is. E.g.

    Keelvar Test

    (Obviously easing and spacing would need to be looked at, was just testing the monogram theory)

    To echo what others have said, it's a great first effort!

    Why can't you be a creative director as a student?

    The worst that can happen is someone asks how/where/when you were a creative director, then you explain what you've said here and see what their take on it is.

    I think at least having it on your CV may get you to interviews.

  • Posted to Can online courses compete with university?, Jan 23, 2019

    I'd say no, they can't. However, I would say experience can!

    I personally feel that I've learnt loads more in work and doing work than I ever did at university. University is one of those myths whereby people say you will be better off at the end of it, but it's simply not true.

    You get the texture from somewhere on the internet then use Photoshop to overlay your design.
