268: I Want It That Way

268: I Want It That Way

SpecFM / Design Details · October 10, 2018 at 3:16pm
This week, we discuss user preferences and whether a lot is too much. In News, we talk about Sketch's new site, recap the Figma contest, and conduct a requiem for Path. And as always, we share a couple cool things, including a wireless mesh network and tchotchkes in plastic bubbles.
