Quotes

Xara founder Charles Moir is unequivocal in the approach of combining a wide range of functionality in one application: "We take the view that the production of a creative document, whether it be printed, PDF or a website, is far more productive coming from a single program than separate ones. Why switch tools just because you want to create or edit some illustration on the page, or enhance a photo. Better that these are done in-situ on the page than out of context. Xara has always been renowned as being fast. By combining the suite of tools into one program, the result is not just lightning fast, but requires a fraction of the memory and PC power of other suites." And in fact it will apparently run adequately on a dusty old Windows XP system, requiring just 500MB of RAM, leading Xara to refer to it as the "world's...
...It all began when I stumbled across the Cutting Edge Logos blog, which asks, "How to design a logo?" It then responds, "1. Set the name in a retail typeface. 2. Cut off some corners in Illustrator 3. Cash a big check." Yikes! Seems a bit far-fetched at first but the blog lays out example after example of a "logo" that's simply an off-the-shelf sans serif font to which...
The folks behind Webflow are definitely of the same opinion: "At Webflow, we’re working on putting design front and center, while automating away the repetitive programming bits as much as possible. And we’re doing this in a way that keeps the final code lean, clean, and fast - without resorting to shortcuts that break established conventions. Because to move the web forward faster, we need to admit that design is the common denominator behind most of the content and experiences on the web. It’s not code. Code is just a means to an end; an implementation detail, albeit an important one."
...Here's how Adobe describes it: "We’ve partnered with some of the most talented and experienced Creatives on Behance to create a library of ready to use, royalty-free assets that assist in the creative process. Gone are the days of scouring the web for UI/presentation kits, settling for mediocre placement images, and spending hours masking products and devices. Now you can access thousands of professionally crafted files including devices, branding layouts, wireframes, charts, vector shapes, repeatable patterns, backgrounds and brushes for your next personal or commercial project."
