The columns are nestable! Nice to see that flexibility.
Is it possible to create our own custom blocks?
Semi-bug: After you give something a class, you can click on the class to edit the text, but it's tricky because if you try to backspace a letter, it will delete the element you're working on. Glad to see cmd+z works fine.
Not sure what the update included, but Chrome seems to be much faster for me now. I'll take rounded tabs in exchange for a faster browser.
That's right, my mistake. It's multi-line search and replace that hasn't been added yet. Here's the github issue about it.
Thanks Andrew. Seeing all your revenue and expenses is fascinating. Reminds me of Jonnie's transparency of expenses for Cushion: https://cushionapp.com/running-costs.
Looking forward to your monthly post!
Was using Atom until it became buggy for me. Switched to VS Code and couldn't be happier... well, except for the lack of multi-file search and replace. Have to open up Coda in those instances.
This looks great, but I'd like to see more than just the two commercial videos, and the new logo. From the description there was a lot more to the project, such as helping design their stores. If you can, show more of the scope of the project!
The video is awesome. Nicely done Microsoft.
Ah, my bad too. I see what you're saying now. You're main gripe with Jason's project is how it was couched in relation to his recent rejection by Apple. Yes, I'd agree that's a disrespectful way to present a project. I think it was partly click-bait because he applied to, and was rejected by, many companies, one of which was Apple.
Thanks for the discussion Ariel. I appreciate it.
Alright, this seems minor... He conducted qualitative research, but didn't explain how.
Seems like a valid critique to his approach.
How is he supposed to know which personas Apple Music actually sees? Isn't that a fair constraint as a non-employee? Good point about using the personas throughout, in regards to all the features.
Back to the question of "What should Jason have done?": Are you saying Jason just needed to improve his approach to the Apple Music redesign, or is there something else you think he should have done to start getting his applications accepted?
Comparing Jason's Apple Music redesign to the dribbblisation of design doesn't seem right. Two of the characteristics described in that Intercom article are: 1) Not articulating the problem being solved , and 2) having flat PNGs with no animations. Those are two things that I thought Jason did quite well in his redesign.
So a question for you: What do you feel Jason should have done after being repeatedly rejected by the companies he applied to? I'm sure he would have worked with the whole team and used data to analyze things, etc. I agree that would have made for a better redesign, but he didn't have access to that information or those people.
As a designer trying to get hired, what do you think Jason should have done differently, or instead of the redesign?
