    "...a comprehensive resource for helping you make your ideas look awesome without relying on the help of a designer."

    I suggest coming at this with the perspective of "learning how to design" rather than "tricks to use so you don't need a designer." It's far more helpful and valuable in the long run to learn a little design skill and see the process as design, instead of diminishing the design as a practice and trying to sidestep it.

    I've used ViewSonics for years because they're reasonably priced, have excellent color and reliability. My current is a ViewSonic VA2855SMH 28" 1080p LED.

  • Posted to How much does a website cost in 2019?, in reply to Rob Gill , Jan 07, 2019

    Yes, people get mad over basic compatibility and they're reasonable to do so. Even if Chrome is the better choice (that's merely a preference for you), the entire point of the web is that a visitor doesn't have to use one specific browser on one specific device. Any moderately competent designer/developer should always test on all major browsers.

    It's pretty, but I'll stick with Harvest ( Harvest doesn't hide the product until you sign up, and they don't claim to be free while collecting 1% on payments.

    Rather broken on Firefox. Clicking the green button does nothing.

    I am a bit surprised that the entire Uber design team didn't quit or revolt during this process.

    Color Oracle is another great app for OSX that helps you simulate various versions of color blindness.

  • Posted to Let's STOP the "Looks good" epidemic on Dribbble, in reply to Tony Jones , Jan 14, 2016

    Yes. It's completely unrealistic to expect constructive crits when one just throws a tiny screenshot without any context on dribbble. I'd also argue that asking hundreds of people for a crit is a recipe for failure. A real crit—a good crit—requires context and comes best from a very small group, not the masses. This is also why I've never viewed dribbble as a feedback/crit platform. Dribbble is a platform for showing off, for quick "look what I did" posts. It's right there in the header: "show and tell." It's not for solid constructive crits (although they can and do happen every now and then). So, should we really expect anything more than "nice job" from dribbble comments? I don't think so.
