    Nice work. I appreciated the Open Type features section. On & Off states and the definitions are a friendly reminder of typography concepts :)

    However, Sketch's latest versions already allow the user to edit symbols for elements within styles.

    What is this referring to? I thought overrides had been around for years?

    This seems like just another opinion stated loudly with a link bait title. Even an anecdotal usability test with a handful of participants would go much further at establishing this argument than simply stating it as fact.

    You don't mention it explicitly, but I dig how much of the customer experience shines through in how you present the logo. Well done.

    I like the perspective of procrastination as an issue of regulating emotions, not managing time. What Motivates Getting Things Done by Mary Lamia goes into much more depth on this https://whatmotivatesgettingthingsdone.com

    Good overview. I'm a fan of labeling assumption-driven personas as "provisional personas" and elaborating on that up front, in case more research isn't done to back things up.

  • Posted to Why “Remember Me” on Logins Should Be the Default, Dec 17, 2020

    I strongly resist this approach. Why make it harder for public computer users to practice better security? This would force them to tick a "Log me out after my session" checkbox that's presumably unchecked by default. This is punishing them for the minor inconvenience of checking "Remember me" on personal computers. So the new default is personal computer users have a minor inconvenience removed while public computer users get less security. Forgetting to check an authentication option shouldn't leave you more exposed, it should just ask you to authenticate again. That's exactly why "Remember me" isn't the default; usability shouldn't compromise security.

    And if we assume casual users are confused by "remember me," do we really think "after my session" is an improvement? What's a session? When is after? Who decides one ends?

  • Posted to G Suite is now Google Workspace (with new logos), Oct 06, 2020

    "Google Workspace" is a clearer name than "G Suite," but boy do I hate those icons. The colors are on-brand but they all just kind of bleed together. The red & white simplicity of Gmail's icon and the blue & white of Google Calendar are entirely lost. I don't know what is going on with that fourth icon. I hope that doesn't replace the Docs, Sheets, and Slides, which are currently really easy to distinguish by color alone.

  • Posted to Sketch 64—Tints, a new Components Menu and more — what’s new in Sketch?, Mar 23, 2020

    I won’t update for a week (per team policy), but curious about anyone brave enough to dive in.

    1. Do Tints help simplify color overrides?

    2. Does the Components menu feel like an improvement or a step back?
