    It's in the cloud, super easy to share, versioning no longer matters, great for collaborative whiteboarding/designing. Devs prefer it, no need for zeplin, shared library is really good, prototyping is just as good or better.

    I think is is really impressive and well-documented. And what I'm about to say next is not meant to be critical or cynical - it's just another perspective.

    Personally, I struggle to spend time optimizing my workflow to this extent. My gut-feel cost/benefit analysis says that in the time I'd spend creating a new efficiency and documenting it, I could've done a ton of actual design at 1-5% slower rate than with this new tool that will be outdated/obsolete pretty quickly.

    I've also found that as soon as I'm settled in a workflow I've optimized, the market shifts and a new tool replaces the one I've invested in. For example, I haven't opened Sketch in 6 months because Figma is just better for me and where I work.

    I don't always agree with Eli, nor do I always understand his motives and/or the value of his work, but I'm glad there's someone in the design world dedicated to critique for its own sake. I think it's a healthy thing in an industry like ours.

  • Posted to Tech designers should be licensed, says Silicon Valley designer Mike Monteiro, in reply to Weston Vierregger , Mar 30, 2018

    That's the case with a lot of senior, well-known, influencer-type designers, though. Isn't it possible to disagree with his point without trying to invalidate his career?

    This looks really well done and I don't mean to diminish, but if you had to bet on a horse wouldn't you go with Figma here? Figma works anywhere, has collab features, prototyping, imports from sketch, etc.

    I guess I'm curious why I should switch from sketch to Lunacy versus Figma.

    Loved this one like the earlier ones too. There's a lack of content around team dynamics, getting buy-in, and driving change as a team (not as an individual). This one really hit home.

    design skills are not just about tools.

    More "art" than "design" (subjective definitions of course) but I love it. Interactive music video.

    In her case, it's a selling point. While perhaps you aren't looking for culture fit when looking for a designer, many larger companies/brands are.
