I hadn’t either. Recently, I found an article about recurring animations in cartoons. And now, I completely get it. They are much like(…)
The role of typography in design is enormous – that goes without saying. Uber has its own Uber Move, Airbnb uses Cereal across its product and brand, BBC replaced the good old Gill Sans with Reith. Seeing companies design their own custom typefaces that work alongside the brand’s aesthetics, we took the opportunity to provide(…)
There’s no easy way to say this: Design tools have completely failed to deliver sufficient ways to help create accessible experiences. All of these have existed as plugins or external programs.
