I set up something called 'Design Ingredients' at the agency I used to work at.
Starter: small introduction to something new, like 'what makes a good icon' (5-15mins) Main course: hands on, getting everyone to do something.. could be linked to the starter such as 'now, make me an icon' (20-40mins) Pudding: I would invite someone to talk about something they've found interesting over the last couple of weeks/month. (5-15mins)
Worked pretty well, we were flexible with what we spoke about and if there was a project the team would rather speak about, we applied the same structure to that :).
I think because we're setting out on a new year and all of the household design tools are coming out with the 'next big thing', it's bound to remain firmly in our view.
Give it a month or two, once the dust has settled, the next 'design tool' equivalent story will saturate our feeds.
The arguments between avid Sketch, Figma, Framer & Invision Studio users' will always rage on though.
This is ridiculously amazing.
The context in which it's used is interesting - I'd really like to see the onboarding of this feature. In terms of accessibility for other apps and other audiences - rather than struggling with "which menu gets the camera working?!", simply tap on the thing itself.
Uh. This is wonderful.
Depends on the stage of the project and what resources you have available.
If you're in the ideation phase, then quick and simple is all you should need - but if you're sitting with devs, building from wireframes and visual design and you want to test a new piece of functionality, then perhaps code is the way to go.
Well yes, there is that - so why have this in the first place. I do understand it has an aesthetic people enjoy.
This would be useful in very low-fi wireframes. Anything beyond that and you're doing yourself a disservice in not using real words (not necessarily the final copy, but something close).
This is definitely something we could use, M. Would be interesting to implement directly into Sketch.
Love the idea of pre-naming artboards... this would save a heap of time.
Woo! Mucho helpful!
