  • Posted to Mockuuups Studio 3.0 - Diverse hands with endless possibilities, Mar 17, 2021

    Nope, not going to pay a monthly subscription for this: it's a kind of feature needed only once in a while, you get the mockup, you publish it, done, it's not a recurring thing.

    While the idea might sound cool, it doesn't work: everyone has different types of creativity, different pace, different times of day too.

    To be more specific:

    • depending on what you are working on you might need faster or slower music
    • depending on where you are in your own creative process, you might need a more relaxing style, with lyrics for inspiration, without lyrics for concentration; sometimes it's nice to have a classic in the middle to wander somewhere else, ...
    • depending on where you are in the world, work times are different and the music that fits best just after lunch is not the same as the one just after your morning coffee

    Sharing your playlist can be cool though.

  • Posted to 5 Things Every Landing Page Should Have, in reply to Johannes Ippen , Aug 31, 2020

    I do agree about the "YOUR", but not about trusting a product because of a face. This idea produces a huge biais based on stereotypes (or even on the quality/smile of the picture). When I pick a product, I'm interested in the product, either it is done by that person or another, it doesn't matter if the product does what I need and does it well. Also, basing the idea that the product might be good because of a face is too much a tinder-world, but what is important if you talk about WHO is the conversation/the story, not the look.

    Not sure about the "show faces" though: this seems more like an old idea; even though it's nice to mention who/where, it's strange to use that as a major selling point in 2020.

    Why would one recommend tools that they themselves don't use?

    If you rely on people using other media (twitter, newsletter) instead of the main website, you are doing it wrong, or then why even bother spending so much time on a website? just use eventbrite or any ticketing service and you are done

    A website can be fun, but the fun must no go against readability and usability. Here is the perfect example of how to fail on those, even though the fun is cool.

    If you want to make art, make art, not a community/useful website!

    Worst answer ever! A website like this should not be only for "those who already know"... it should onboard new people (even though they won't have time to buy tickets, which is very sad but another subject), otherwise you are creating a shitty community of people with knowledge, how about students? people learning about Laraval? how are they supposed to grow in this community if you are excluding them?...

  • Posted to Minimal HTML & CSS Resume for Devs and Designers, in reply to Aaron Wears Many Hats , Nov 19, 2018

    I do agree! But it won't be easy to distinguish: almost all CVs are made at some point from a template ;-)

    The general idea is however that you should "own" the template, not just fill it. The CV should catch the eye of the reader, fast enough, important facts, no noise.

    Too much design put into it might also say "hey, look, I have so much free time", which is bad in the opposite way (like when the person has a super demo-y personal website).

    This template is actually hard to read, too much left/right reading (ie. columns), too much separated contents, no story, not enough details, ... it doesn't provide enough useful information, but does make pointless (visual) noise...

  • Posted to Do you export images in all sizes for a mobile design?, Nov 24, 2017

    Maybe @1x could be dropped, not much iOS devices with such a screen these days

    Also, as many comments point out ImageOptim and other optimisation techniques: always do it! (and always check your images visually after processing with those tools, you might in some rare cases have surprises, better check than sorry)
