  • Posted to Jony Ive, iPhone designer, announces Apple departure, Jun 28, 2019

    I would like to see a new approach to iPhones design. Not a big fan of the round slippery edges, and screen protection should be dealt with too – I don't know a single person who has NOT broken their glass/screen. iPhone without a case is way too fragile.

  • Posted to Any designers using Framer X? Why or why not?, Jun 19, 2019

    I am a designer using Framer X almost every day. I am believe it's mostly the right direction to go, on the other hand it's "not quite there"yet.

    You can do pure design in Framer and I dare to say it's almost on par with Sketch already. Some things missing, other things better than Sketch. Generally Sketch is too static and the output is static screens, FX is much more dynamic and the output can be a pretty decent clickable prototype.

    Then there's the realm of code components. It requires some elementary coding. This is basically what Classic Framer was all about. But old Framer became pretty messy real quick, FX is much more organized by adopting React. Luckily, React recently underwent some important changes that dramatically simplified the code you need to write. It's back to creating a big bang with just 5 lines of code, which is what was cool about Classic Framer. Your grandma can write it. It can be quick & dirty, FX team even encourages you to go quick & dirty, it's usually enough for simple prototypes.

    But then again it's React. That means sky is the limit. I believe it might require some changes in design teams where even junior javascript developer (or you learning some more js/react) can suddenly become very valuable - can help designers create more complex components and prototypes and create really advanced prototypes real quick. That means much better user testing, much shorter feedback loop and iteration cycle, better product, huge savings in production code development.
