    Disappointed there can not be multiple drag interactions on a single object/group. So, you can not drag something to the left, then to the left again, before going back to the right.

    No, I don't.

    Enlighten me, please.

    Yeah, why bother learning about typography or type design and seeing what pairings work best through trial and error when you can just generate trendy combinations.

    Fuck me.

    Why do designers constantly feel the need to remind each other to be a fucking human?

    Hey, don't forget to have empathy! Oh, thanks, I forgot to have empathy, like a human. Hey, don't forget that there's a world outside the screen you design for! No shit.

    Designers seem obsessed with sharing or receiving incredibly basic and shallow theoretical nonsense.

    It's good to be reminded of the real people—with stories and hopes and fears and physical constraints and busy schedules—who use the digital artifacts we produce.

    If designers actually need to be reminded of this, I'm more scared for the future than I once was.

    So, he's switching from an artist masquerading as a designer to an artist.

    Cool.

    Well done typography. More specifically, the typographic color is far, far too dark.

    I wonder if there would be as much feigned outrage over these types of rebrands if they just switched the fucking logo and didn't write an entire story on it. It always feels like it's the empty words/meaning that upset everyone but instead of mentioning that they attack the actual visual/execution.

    As usual, the most ridiculous part about this rebrand is the reaction.
