  • Posted to Icon Survey: What do these icons mean to you? , May 29, 2019

    I'd love to get feedback: What do the icons mean to you? ie.: A. -----, B. -------, C. ----- ----, D. -------- just as a blunt visceral response, what would you name these icons?

    Seeing how this works.

    If you can't take critiques you shouldn't be on here. Sorry many but I agree, the world didn't really need another piece of desktop clutter.

    Made add lazy scroll to the nav so it doesn't just jump to the section. That may just be a preference on my part though.

  • Posted to 25 Book Recommendations from Women Who Design, in reply to Beth R , Jun 13, 2017

    Absolutely nothing. This sorta stuff is really frustrating because its really no different than Pink Weight lifting belts just for women. It doesn't really add benefit and excludes half the population to what purpose?

    Google scriptographer. It was a plug-in for illustrator that letyou do something like this (also rhino has a python plugin like this). I'd love it.

    Not directly on the team doing it but I like to think its akin to a generalized parti? Of course across the wider portfolio of products there will be differences in products, but the long-term hope is that you'll have a look and feel within both the motion and visual design that leaves users thinking "this is IBM". Sorta like how you can see a building made by Zaha Hadid, and even if its drastically different from the next one and really doesn't use any of the same exact elements, it has an overall look and feel that leaves you thinking "this was made by Zaha Hadid".

    The disgruntled techie me in me also says "Well the devs had to pick some sort of bezier curve for their easing movement, so lets lay out one thats mechanical rather than linear or goofy."

    Ah, you should check out www.ibm.com/design they've been doing some fun stuff for the last two years in the realm. Definitely still hiccups but, I guess I'm hopeful. NIck is right above in that some of the work is for people doing work with IBM software (like, if you check out Bluemix, some of their styles are for people making apps on top of the Bluemix platform) but some of it is also for the myriad of applications that IBM creates/still covers and making sure they can easily update/change.

    I'm not on the team making it directly but we use aspects of it. General idea if you look up ibm.com/design is that the company as a whole is embracing the design perspective across their enterprise software. While much of what IBM is doing isn't consumer facing (we're not the next snapchat), there are still hundreds of applications and millions of customers...so why not make those older enterprise applications useful, beautiful and at least mildly pleasant? Definitely not perfect yet but rome wasn't built in a day?
