    I'd love either a rebound, or if you'd like share your information here. The rebound would be nice though as it would be a good discussion on Dribbble, and it would be a nice visual path on how everyone works.

    I'd like to see less animation, and as a hiring manager I tend to look for more details in case studies. Overall a great portfolio, but those things would clean it up and take it up a notch.

    I'd agree with the statement. There are literally hundreds of studies showing, based on research, how color can influence the success of design work. If color is a new topic for you, a quick Google search, will find lots of information.

    Classic, but still fantastic.

    @connor That is what my thoughts were as well. I appreciate the constructive discussion regarding the look and feel of Twitter's design. I do actually like the redesign. Though I believe that a lot more could change to approve the overall experience.

    To those trying to be smart. Well "brutalism" is art or architecture using exaggeration and distortion to create its effect. That is the textbook definition. Whether it's the most accurate description is less important than understanding that it is the term being used to define the current trend. Words have meaning, and it's good to use them to communicate patterns. There is a reason a painting is called hard edge, color field, etc

    It happens to us all. We designers are an opinionated bunch.

    I'm sorry that there are those in the community that act this way. I'd recommend reading the article by Paul Stamatiou where he details how they designed and prototyped video in Twitter:

    What phone are you on? It seems speedy to me on my iPhone 6s.

    Initial impressions: I like it a lot. Feels much more at home on iOS 11 than iOS 10 though. The fonts are matching the brutalist approach that iOS 11 is being patterned toward.

    The quick swipe (or profile icon tap) to access specific profile sections is nice. I can now access my lists more quickly, and overall I see a lot of good things in this new layout.

    I wish that the creation of new tweets was more accessible. I feel a FAB, or central "new tweet" button at the bottom would make it easier to tweet quickly. I'm still a big supporter of one-handed phone usage. Another and more viable option would be a persistent input field at the bottom to tweet from.

    I like the subtle animations throughout. Nice subtle smooth visuals.
