  • Posted to The Art of Design Spec'ing, in reply to Robert Grazioli , Jun 15, 2021

    I've updated the article and added 3 examples for recent projects I worked on.

    You're right that new tools like Figma reduces the need for some specs. However, a lot of the design details such as relative widths/heights can't be inspected automatically in these tools. You'll still need to spec those manually.

    And I totally agree with you on contributing to the codebase, which is what I do when I have the time. However, most of the time it can be challenging to do that on top of my product design duties.

    Thanks a lot for your comment and feedback, and for sharing your workflow as well. Very insightful.

    Glad you liked farts.link haha. Happy pranking!

    I've also been trying to leave a reply to your comment since yesterday with no luck. I kept getting an error whenever I was trying to post my comment

    Haha yeah the community here seems to have gone really quiet recently!

    You're right, the article actually misses real examples. I've just updated the post and added 3 examples from a couple of projects I've recently worked on. Thanks a lot for the feedback and for the suggestion

    I also agree with you that following a strict spec'ing workflow cleans up your docs. It's like a second chance for you to review your work, make changes and update it to make things more clear for everyone.

    Thanks again Mark for passing, for the comments, and the great suggestion!

    That's impressive! Tiny bit NSFW though just FYI

    Feels a lot like good old Flash websites

    Pretty impressive and unique! I loved the typography and the cool hover effects.

    With that said, it's not fully responsive and needs some <3 to better support small screens
