The main problem designers and web developers face now is that anyone nowadays can create a design / website. But doing it right, is hard.
I noticed this trend a few years ago. I was a pretty good web/ui designer for a few years. Then I decided to re-learn programming, built Sublevel and now I have a full-time job as a software engineer. I still think design is better than code, but it's hard to explain to someone why a design is better than other. With code it's easier because it does or doesn't do what the end user is asking.
Never, ever, ever let them call you a "creative". It's a way to be disenfranchised. You are a designer. It's not magic, it's a trade. -- Mike Monteiro
I started out as a designer. I remember spending the nights designing all kinds of stuff in Photoshop. Now all I do is code because no one is giving credit to design anymore. Want to design a site? Get WordPress and a theme. Want to design an app? Get Bootstrap. Want to design a logo? Get a web font.
I just got Rick Roll'd at the supermarket. Who'd have thought?
Radio plays that song so often. Always fun.
So much things to learn, so little time. Too much distractions!
Just "installed" sublevel on my iPhone. Really hope that would update it to support individual fullscreen "app" rather than open a page in safari. Do check this out:
Wonders if it's worth it to try and implement a live feed of Sublevel on a website.
Does your website do anything else? It's interesting! But I don't see what I can do with it.
The first step I take in Sublevel. I may or may not be here for the rest of the year. I hope I am, learning to write. Sublevel is a place where I shall share my thoughts from now on. A test of discipline.
I'm also trying out Sublevel and seeing how I like it. Best of luck!
