    You can only get better at anything by actually doing it.

    I was thinking about this the other day. Why can't rounded corners be managed globally? Is it a technical limitation?

    Will it melt everything that isn't on a Mac Pro level? As the current version? Or can we expect some performance improvements?

    Yeah, this isn't looking very good.

    I agree with Andreas. The release of an overpriced, limited paper notebook with an atom symbol on it isn't exactly newsworthy. Especially when it happens every other day.

  • Posted to Designers, how do you feel about the use of emojis as parts of the UI?, May 14, 2018

    As with everything in design, it really comes down to your target audience, your app/web and vibe you are going for.

    • I have seen websites which overdid it and ended up looking chaotic.
    • I have seen websites which were heavily typo oriented and it brightened the feeling of the website and made them look friendly.
    • I have seen websites which used them sporadically and even then it completely missed the tone of the rest of the UI.
    • I have seen apps which used them to enhance the experience (for example rating of customer support?) and it worked well.
    • I also use one emoji on my website, and I think it looks pretty decent?

    So ... yeah, it depends.

    I'm not sure what is happening with their design language, but it is a mess on almost all their pages.

  • Posted to Who actually uses atomic design?, Apr 17, 2018

    I believe I do.

    I've designed two smaller sized design systems for SaaS apps, as well as helped to design huge design system for Kiwi.com front end as well as our mobile apps. So ...

    I agree that the semantics of using words like atoms, molecules, and organisms isn't very clear for people who haven't read Atomic Design book. But as the book itself states, you can call it however you want. You don't have to be so explicit about it. If components and elements work for your environment, then use it without worry.

    The logic behind the naming convention resides in whether the thing can be broken down into something smaller. So if you have a form field with a label, you can separate them into atoms. Into two separate entities.

    What worked for me the best was adopting the logic for the three most basic levels. Atoms, molecules, and organisms (as mentioned before, you can call them however you want).

    • If you can't split something more, or make it more basic than you know you are dealing with an atom.
    • If you have two, three or more atoms together, it is a molecule.
    • If you have a molecule, with anything else (it doesn't necessarily have to be another molecule or an atom), you know you are dealing with an organism.

    The book follows with a higher level of abstraction for pages and others, but this usually gets complicated, and out of the scope, so I stopped using these for now and focus mainly on the three basic stages.
