  • Posted to What has been your experience with WebFlow?, Nov 12, 2018

    I've tried most of the supposed front end tools that were supposed to design clean code visually (remember Macaw?). Webflow is the only one that's delivered on the promise.

    There's definitely a learning curve, but within a week I was able to build a site for a customer that would have normally taken 4-6 weeks.

    Not sure when they updated sketchapp.com, but it's gorgeous.

    Upgraded immediately... Disappointed in dark mode. Like other commenters mentioned, it looks awful and half baked. Not much else seems different aside from redesigned app store.

    Cool redesign, but I don't see how a business can be created from this...

    Amazing. I don't feel the portfolio itself is super unique (though it's clean and easy to navigate) but your work is hot man, gorgeous stuff and a great variety of different styles showing your versatility to adapt to different brands and styles.

    One thing I'd love to see is the results from your work. C level execs don't have the same appreciation of design that DN folks will. They instead want to see whether or not the work you did was effective. Did you help boost conversions, get leads, etc? I would definitely publish those stats and make them very visible.

    Great job overall, keep it up!

    Why was it necessary for Airbnb to create a new typeface?

    The real reason... licensing costs on Circular is friggin' ridiculous.

  • Posted to Walmart new homepage design – Is it better?, May 13, 2018

    I like this new look for Walmart.

    Is it better? Definitely looks a hell of a lot better. In terms of performance though, tough to say... if they change it drastically in the next 6-8 months then I think you can safely say it did not perform.

    Welp, DN's duplicate function did not show this or pick it up, so I submitted it. Thanks for pointing this out.

    It feels modernized yet familiar. It's incredibly tough to do an evolution like this without losing the soul and personality of the previous, but imo they nailed it.

    As smart as Silicon Valley has gotten with A/B testing to iterate and increase DAU as much as possible, the detriment it's had on society is undeniable. For people who want tech to serve them instead of us serving tech, this seems like a great solution.
