  • Posted to Should a Design Tool let us design a Chair with only one leg?, Mar 26, 2018

    Thank you for all the comments. Most of them reflect the dilemma challenging me.

    On one end, I question how free is an artist when drawing a horse, given that somehow the form of the horse exists in her/his mind. Do we treat that "horse form" a limiting factor of creativity? ( I think it is available even for the swallowing elephant drawing of The Little Prince, "Don't let others dictate your talents", but the form of elephant still exists) :

    Extending from this example in art to digital product design (UI/UX), as it is in case of CAD tools, enforcing the "button" to be "button" whatever visual style it has... This is the point where I get confused.

    May be a checkbox example is more suitable to this case. Whether it has a check box or switch form, or a toggle button, requiring that element to have two states (true/false, yes/no) is still related to limiting creativity?

  • Posted to What I really want from a design tool: stateful components, Mar 24, 2018

    We as Toolabs has just released beta of our DS-101 Component Design Studio which I think might be a solution for making stateful components.

    Here is a quick video for making a simple stateful button component :

    I will be happy if you have a look and share your comments on the solution.
