    It is a natural development of our industry. We've moved from designing landing pages and small stuff to creating systems that are able to scale with the product and company. We should be happy that we are finally able to impact designs on such a scale.

  • Posted to Using Notion to run a design agency , Dec 22, 2018

    I dunno. I gave Notion a couple of tries, always tried to like it just because the product itself looks very useful and I should be the target customer. Even the pricing is fair. But something has never clicked.

    What I've noticed in my workflows and what I usually end up using are tools, which take as little time as possible to solve my problem. In this case, writing stuff down. And for me, hitting Dropbox Paper and the Create a new doc button is much faster and smoother.

    Don't get me wrong Notion is a very well made product, but it might be too powerful for my taste. It made me feel like writing down even the simple stuff was more complicated than it should be. And even though I had it installed and in my dock for a long time, I've always ended up using something else.

  • Posted to How did you handle transition of component's library from Sketch to Figma?, Nov 18, 2018

    Hey Andrey!

    I was dealing with something similar a year ago. At first, I imported the Sketch library into Figma, made few tweaks here and there, but while it worked quite well it didn't really fit Figma workflow. The different ways how they handle symbols/components override lead me to redo the whole thing from scratch.

    It might look like it will be a pain to do, but since Figma gives you a bit more freedom with components, the resulting library will be far smaller. So it kind of compensates. I wrote about it in some detail over here.

  • Posted to Twitter to remove 'like' tool in a bid to improve the quality of debate, in reply to James Young , Oct 29, 2018

    I consider Twitter to still be a valid platform for a professional outlet. I follow around 50 people and that's it. 95% of them are designers and they tweet about design only (mostly). Twitter is like any other open social platform, you get what you make out if it.

  • Posted to Are Figma and XD finally getting Sketch out of the picture in UI design?, in reply to Ryan Hicks , Oct 25, 2018

    The moment you start paying for anything else but the design tool, it starts adding app pretty quickly and the whole situation turns around.

    I got the product from Kickstarter. It is definitely one of the smoothest things out there!

    I share the same sentiment. This must be the most beautiful-impossible-to-scan website I've ever seen. So just to break it down:

    • I don't mind combining serifs with sans serifs but there seems to be no logical/structure behind how they are used
    • The way the website is structured seems like it is a website made for you (author) rather than for a visitor. I don't really see why should I care how much you weight. Or how many steps you took yesterday. I find it to be very gimmicky (I feel the same way about how many coffees somebody drank yesterday)
    • If you want to show off your front end/design skills it works perfectly. But if you want the visitor to find value in your website, I think it fails in this regard.
    • The most interesting content on the website (articles and work experience) is hidden almost at the bottom.

    Interesting thinking, but no. It is not obvious.
