As designers we are experiencing a magical time, but ...

Hi, welcome to another one of my newsletters where I would like to take a look at the times we as designers live in and everything it offers to us. I came to this topic through a world-renowned designer who started an amazing discussion with his nostalgic twitter status:

“As much as I understand why we are where we are today, I miss the old design days. The time before design systems, frameworks, UX Religion and “design thinking”. I miss the pure craft. The artistic side. The experiments, the play. The excitement of doing it completely different”

I’m not entirely sure if all of you have experience with creating websites and all the visuals in photoshop or illustrator, but the time was magical and will definitely remain magical in our memories. It’s because in that time it wasn’t strongly influencing trends, it didn’t stick to the standards and rules, it felt diverse. We now live at times when in many aspects people are creating in a rush and forget about the hard “craft” which was so “beautifully” nostalgic.


But enough with the nostalgia and let’s get right to what’s new with me and the world!
