  • Posted to UX Design should evolve to HX Design, Aug 20, 2018

    Unless you are designing for animals who or what else would a designer be crafting an experience for? Isn't it redundant to have to clarify it (the experience) is for 'humans'?

    So tired of hearing about the hamburger icon. Its here to stay, get over it. BTW, Facebook didn't get rid of the hb icon in the example, they just moved it to the tab bar.

    Probably because some people don't want to have sign up for a Pinterest account to view them. I personally don't see it as a problem but I could see some not liking it.

  • Posted to Diya open beta - Timeline Animation directly in Sketch, in reply to Suresh Selvaraj , Feb 23, 2018

    When you say “more than one transition”, do you mean an object that goes from A to B to C, instead of just A to B?

    I mean two separate objects moving from A to B on the same trigger. For instance on a home page image gallery where you tap 'next'

    Animation 1: the image slides out and fades while the next appears and slides in.

    Animation 2: Text fades while new text fades in and up.

    Two separate animations on one trigger. Where each animation has more than one effect.

    Yes, the full power of AE would be awesome

    I personally do not want the full power of AE, just some of the features such as key framing. I think this would allow for the exact use I'm speaking of above and cut down on the number artboards needed. If I am wrong please correct me since I am still somewhat new to animating.

    Am I thinking about this the wrong way?

    Thanks for your reply!

    This is great!

    I have been spending some time playing around with it and it is really promising. It works very well for transitioning one screen to another.

    I started by experimenting with morphing a FAB into a nav and the amount of control is really cool. Would be nice if there was a way to group the layers created from the morphing of one shape into another so that the easing could be adjusted as a whole rather than each individual layer in the timeline.

    I did hit a wall once I tried to animate something with more than one transition. For instance when trying to animate page transitions on a web design so that images and text animate in different ways. I have not found a way to achieve these more complex motions. Maybe you could provide a tutorial demonstrating something like this.

    You know if there were some way to implement the ability to set keyframes in the timeline and drag the object into position like in AE (rather than duplicate artboards) this would be a game changer. Just a thought.

    As a side note it would also be cool to have some way to record a .mov for use on projects in portfolio projects. Not even sure if this is possible from within sketch. But would be a nice feature.

    All in all this is awesome work! Its very impressive what you have accomplished and I am really excited to see where you take this. I definitely will be experimenting more to see what else I can do.

    Thanks for your hard work!

  • Posted to What are the best books on typography you recommend?, in reply to Steven Cavins , Feb 11, 2018

    Have all of those and can confirm they are all great choices. I have one additional book to add.

    The Anatomy of Type: A graphic Guide to 100 Typefaces by Stephen Coles

    It's a great book for gaining a solid foundation of both type anatomy and classifications. Stephen is the former creative director of FontShop and co-founder of Fonts In Use; his knowledge of typography is extensive. I learn new things every time I open it up.
