In my 7 years as freelancer I had never to fear for my job. There was always someone waiting, thinking or remembering me. The only thing i truly regret is my lack of time for drawing -.- https://www.instagram.com/p/BJX6NOEhF3m/?taken-by=ma_rylou

The Harvard Art Museums hold one of the first and largest collections relating to the Bauhaus, the 20th century’s most influential school of art and design. Active during the years of Germany’s Weimar Republic (1919–33), the Bauhaus aimed to unite artists, architects, and craftsmen in the utopian project of designing a new world. The school promoted experimental, hands-on production; realigned hierarchies between high and low, artist and worker, ...

The Birth & Death of JavaScript. A talk by Gary Bernhardt from PyCon 2014. This science fiction / comedy / absurdist / completely serious talk traces the history of JavaScript, and programming in general, from 1995 until 2035. It's not pro- or anti-JavaScript; the language's flaws are discussed ...

I spend most of my time with optimizing based on performance. And i like to point out: Googles Material design is not holding up. Not because the idea isn't good. Its because of our reality. looking at the concept...everything is fine...until you execute it and use it in the real world. Using animations is still a very limited field and i stopped using a lot of google products because the animation was incredibly terrible (e.g. g+) you clicked on links you couldn't see.

i talked about the charactaristics and functional animations for a year now and suddenly everyone seems to write articles about it. Still creatives do not have access to it.

Stop using fancy software, use your brain and a pen.

As a dev, I have a love hate relationship with Material.
Most of the design spec is great.

Rant: Some parts are awful though, like how we still have no idea of how to handle an app nav structure when it inevitably becomes too large. We always end up putting most of it behind hidden buttons. Whether it is a nav drawer, the last tab or something else does not matter, it is always shit.

Even for the best parts of the spec around transitions, adoption is very hard on Android because that's something that has been added as a total after thought.

As a consequence, the API is more than awkward : you have to launch a new screen while telling the system that you want a transition. So behind the scene you create that new screen while nothing happens in front of the user. When it is created, you tell it that this part of the new screen is tied to that part of the old one and the system can then launch an animation.

1- it is awkward to write
2- it is often slow since a bunch of things happen behind the scenes
3- it is buggy as hell. Even in an app that has been used to develop and showcase transitions like Play Music you just have to play with it for 2 minutes to discover many glitches. Not their fault, the framework is just not that great.
4- Text transitions are almost impossible. We don't have a way to dynamically reflow text, so having a text in a transition always lead to an awkward state change..


If Fuschia is really a thing and the successor of Android, maybe it will bring a way to successfully implement it (after all, it looks like they want to bake powerful graphical capabilities like shadows & ripples deep into the system, so why not transitions as well).
Before that, I am ready to give up on many transitions :-/

besides the fact google is embracing a flappy flappy overlappy ....lets just say its bad information architecture...google has also the idea that highlighting a menu item will be understood as toggle.

well, its not. Get that in your head. Test that. What a freaking design show are you hosting. Who thought we don't need toggles anymore. Who's granny is getting that?

come on.

well, information architecture isn't that hard. both teams could recognize that. You can feel how google is turning material into their maass-solution and it turns out its awful. I'm not saying this because i like to be mean, i'm saying this because people just stopped using products. Include me.

my most popular and often used google product is google forms. for my interviews. great!

someone at google has to learn building layouts and gesture based interaction design.

what do you think happens when you try moving the gallery... you change the filter... great work... 50% of googles fresh and fancy designed interfaces are poorly executed and terribly thought through.

Also, eigentlich soll man ja die kleinen Läden unterstützen. Mein Hercules Trekking Fahrrad ist nichts besonderes aber nachdem ich mit zwei kleinen Läden so dermaßen schlecht beraten wurde und die Inspektion plus Gangschaltung einstellen 4mal teurer war um dann auch noch nach 2 wochen gar nicht mehr zu gehen... ...da geh ich jetzt immer wieder zu stadler. Mein eher bescheidenes Rad wird dort regelmäßig gewartet, die Beratung ist sehr gut und transparent die Mitarbeiter seit Jahren die selben. Wer sein Rad sauber hinbringt tut dem Mechaniker einen gefallen und wird nicht nur freundlich bedient sondern auch zügig, termingerecht und zuverlässig.

Der Service was sehr nett. Was ich übel nehme ist die ansage "dann erwarte ich aber 20 prozent trinkgeld". Das essen war weniger als gut. mehr als 10 € für vertrocknete nudeltaschen. Dann klebt der service ständing und möchte dauernd neue bestellungen aufnehmen schafft es aber nicht den espresso zum dessert zu bringen. kurz und gut, wer zuviel geld hat und nichts mehr schmeckt der kann gern dort essen gehen.

Das essen war wie immer gut, die unfreundlichkeit hat mir aber mein geburtstagsessen ziemlich verdorben. Auch mit freundlichkeit und lob für das essen hat sich die bedienung nicjt dazubherabgelassen freundlich zu sein. Trinkgeld gabs trotzdem weil die kollegen ja nett sind

Ich habe jetzt schon 3 Artikel neu gekauft oder umgetauscht weil mir nicht gesagt wurde das es auch eine bessere option gibt. Dazu kommt das es vollkommen überteuert ist. Speedo verkauft seine wahre für 10 € hingegen dieser laden für 23 € Ich unterstütze den Einzelhandel gern gegen eine freundliche und kompetente Beratung sowie auswahl und anprobe. Hier jedoch wurde ich schon dreimal "zum kauf beraten"
