  • Posted to How much RAM do we need for design?, Nov 14, 2019

    I still use my early 2008 Mac Pro. I purchased it from Apple with 2 gigs (1G x 2 sticks) and finally upgraded last year to 6 gigs (2G x 2 sticks; 1G x 2 sticks) and it runs Adobe CC without any lag for static designing. (photo editing, creating print and web graphics, UI designs, frontend development, local server development) I don't edit videos so I don't really need more.

  • Posted to Any thoughts on UI & UX of a Password Generator App? Made by freshman designer, Nov 01, 2019

    I entered numbers ("one", "two", "three") for all inputs and receiving password suggestions with text about "creating-UX", "why-managers", and "visual-designers" makes me distrust the service as this isn't the subject matter I entered.

    I also don't think any of the suggestions would actually qualify as a strong password.

  • Posted to Asked to make 70+ page wire prototype. Madness?, Jul 12, 2019

    "It is a very complex site." -- This is why they want a prototype! It doesn't sound like an unreasonable task and 70 pages doesn't seem like a lot.

    I recommend explaining how this is different from Pinterest. As Otomar mentioned, having the actual UI could help in this area. Be clear if this a native app or a website.

    The pricing page needs to be organized better. Since there are two prices for the Team plan, it looks like the benefits above the price are only for that specific price. Similar benefits between the Creator and Team should line up on the same horizontal. (Unlimted number of boards)

    Same exact thought about the G.

  • Posted to It's 2018 and Material Design still uses a floppy disk as a Save icon, in reply to Marcel van Werkhoven , Jun 02, 2018

    What's a click?

    I think referring to the icon by it's source material instead of it's function was the actual issue in your described interaction.

    If the save icon was being developed for the first time in 2018 using a floppy disk would not make sense. My opinion on this isn't that people recognize the stylized object or understand its historical reference, it's the people have come to associate a square with a corner missing with another shape (mostly a rectangle) in the middle as the way to commit the current state of the document into storage.

    To play a video you click the triangle; square to stop; two rectangles to pause. These are just shapes that now have an attached meaning when seen in context. I don't see the save icon being interpreted any differently.

    You keep repeating yourself. Can you actually list the application you're referencing when you say they've "dropped saving as a concept" so we know what you're talking about?

    I use

    You can group different icon fonts or select individual icons from multiple fonts so the font size isn't bloated with unused icons. Custom svgs can be uploaded so you're not restricted to the same generic icon fonts. Everything compressed into a single file (multiple file formats) and svgs files.

    Good on you for having an idea and seeing it through.

    Just an FYI, the "Find" section is hard to read. The white coastal image as a background makes the white text impossible to read on wider resolutions.
