  • Posted to Pentagram Case Study on the Slack Rebrand, in reply to Don Citarella , Jan 17, 2019

    ooh see now THAT'S a valid criticism, I didn't notice that at first but that's gnarly. I'm disappointed in how vapid and cranky most of this design criticism is - we can at least pick at details like this that our trade gives us the skill to look for!

    shockingly bad is subjective - slack hired them and liked the result. if it doesn't hurt product use or sales, then it's hard to make the argument that it matters. especially the kind of spit-flying arguments that john gruber has been making today.

    It's fine - I doubt their logo in and of itself matters too much to their business and everyone will forget it's different in a couple months. This one solves a lot of problems from a consistency and versatility standpoint too. My only gripe is the dark purple background they're using with it a lot - it makes the colors look muddy and is super low-contrast. Not great for an icon you want to find easily many times a day. I would prefer it on white.

    "See how it works" leading you to an incredibly dense help document instead of a marketing page is... bold!

  • Posted to Square Footage Calculator - A quick holiday design project. , Jan 09, 2019

    Feels like solving a problem that doesn't exist, at least for the simpler shapes - I think there's probably something here that would be making a task easier, but for just calculating square footage, popping x*y into the calculator, google, or siri is much faster than using combination mouse and keyboard to enter those values.

    The icons themselves are nowhere to be found on this page.

    Personal preference, but I noticed some mockups have lorem ipsum, which was a turn-off. I would find some real writing to put in there - to me lorem ipsum = unfinished.

  • Posted to We made this beautiful budget calculator so agencies won't have to deal with Excel anymore. Feedback? , Dec 14, 2018

    I suspect everyone has their own fastest methods for calculating that the free grid of Excel handles well, after a lot of setup. Did you talk to a lot of people to figure out what their needs are? My initial instinct is that this would slow me down and I'd be doing a lot of the same task over and over, whereas a spreadsheet enables lots of duplication of values, quick copy/paste, starting from a template, etc.

    Why is it responsive everywhere except mobile sizes?
