Most of these points are Brad complaining that he can't use his 1Password to fill in forms properly - I feel like it has very little to do with improving a users' experience and just fitting in with what he deems convenient.
Magic links are no where near as complex as he's stated here - there's no copy and pasting of passwords.. it's a magic link. You tap on it, it logs you straight back into the app that sent you to your inbox. It's also a fantastic way to validate email addresses.
Not sure he'll find a source or that what he's said is in fact, a fact - "Marvel software engineer Lori Lombert said "We built this in FrontPage and host it Angelfire". Looks like Marvel paid themselves ten thousands dollars.
I'm sure there is some irony in this link not working?
We use Sketch combined with some other products.
Sketch + Invision for prototyping Sketch + Abstract for versioning Sketch + Zeplin for engineers
With much time and effort invested in our design ecosystem, including various libraries, I can't see our team shifting away from Sketch for quite some time. The use of all these tools sometimes feels excessive, but I quite like have dedicated products for specific functions.
For Figma, there's something stopping me from feeling comfortable about using it, I'm not sure what or why. As for XD. Absolutely no chance. Cut the ties with Adobe years ago, will not go back to their crazy subscriptions and feature-creep-susceptible products.
Side note: Invision Studio - used once or twice, felt unbelievably laggy and buggy, attempting to do far too many things - wondered how on earth some of these designers are able to release videos of themselves building prototypes, but then realise they've been paid for doing so and have spent hours laboriously working through it. Too slow in the real world. And Framer X? Put off by code, don't have the spare time to learn how to effectively use it (I know, flogging a dead horse).
Sketch landed on my doorstep in beta form when I was at Uni back in 2011. The ease and speed of learning how it works has enabled me to grow as a designer quicker than illustrator or photoshop ever could. The community, plugins and support has been a massive bonus.
Most awesome :)
We've got one Sketch file that has over 120 artboards, most of them are symbols. I had some epic beachballin' before hand - I now have a lot less (still happens on a couple of problematic multi-layered symbols)
The same goes for anyone who uses Abstract - they too have said hold off updating if you want to continue working 'safely' (whatever that means).
I've updated my OS and Sketch 52 - Abstract is still functioning, just a few weird bits and pieces of UI when it comes to the newly introduced DarkMode™
Consider rewording the title to 'Digital Manipulation'. So many dark UX patterns mentioned in the above. Nice site and presentation though, which really is all we care about, right?
Seconded this approach - exactly what the team here at Tandem do. We also do no ever deliver wireframes to developers - we only deliver fully developed, accurate visual designs.
