Hi everyone—I've been heads down all day and I'm only catching up on this thread now. Thanks for all of the thoughts on this interview. It was tough one but worthwhile. I do think Eli has something valuable to contribute, but at the same time I'm sympathetic to some of the less generous appraisals of his work. As I prepped it for posting I realized it's probably not going to change a lot of people's minds about his work; if you liked him before you probably still do, and if you don't then you probably still don't. Anyway, if nothing else, I think this thread here on DN has been really constructive. If I can answer any questions on the interview, please let me know.
Sorry about that! Can you send some more details to me at desk at subtraction dot com? I'll share with the Typeform folks.
I just posted this chat I did with Kirill Grouchnikov who runs the site Pushing Pixels. He's done a ton of interviews there with the designers who have created UIs for huge movies like "Iron Man," "The Hunger Games," "The Martian," "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and more.
It's one of my favorite interviews I've done. If you love movies and UI design, you may like it too.
Thanks for posting Steve. If anyone has any questions or comments, we're here to answer. Also, I wrote about some of the design ideas that went into this latest release in this blog post.
Well done Matt!
Thanks folks. Also worth noting that a few readers have written to me about tools that I didn't mention:
The ones with asterisks were not mentioned by the designers we talked to. The others were mentioned, but only once or twice, IIRC.
More on how we built Comp CC in this blog post!
