A bunch of us are using it at @wistia, and we really like it! Great work @henrikcullen! One thing that's not clear is how the points are awarded. I'm no math major, but I genuinely can't figure it out. None of us can. Can you explain it to me?
I've only used it for a little while, but I like Abstract as a management system for polished assets and final designs. I haven't gotten used to using it for design files that are sketches or explorations. Curious to know if other Abstract adopters are going all-in?
This looks really fun - I love the spirit of collaborative video, and working offline seems like a clever way to avoid a whole ton of problems. Any plans to add more collaborators? And then allow each one to cut together a different version of the same event? That would be cool.
This looks great! As a little object clipped to my kids, I really want to hold this in my hand and feel its weight and material. What physical prototyping did you do, and did you try other materials or shapes? It seems like something whose success would really depend on it being an object I'm happy to pick up and touch. I'm imagining milled wood, or 3D printed custom shells.
It's great to see communication trends for consumers making their way into the workspace. It makes the work a little more human, and there are some types of communication for which these new models simply work better. Excited to give it a try!
@_slinehan Love the concept, and love the maps. From one map-lover to another, I can't help wishing these styles (esp. Chocolate Lily) didn't add borders around the map area. It would be so much punchier, and seems conceptually appropriate (i.e. raw data printed) rather than something that's been translated from data into decor.
This was originally developed for churches and relies on a group of people entering their credit card information when they first text to donate. What's cool about that is that a relationship has been created - the recipient has donor contact information and the donors have a single phone number that they can use repeatedly in the future - so the emphasis is on a future pattern of giving, not a...
You can "Like" an email! According to their site, "Like sends a quick message to the sender letting them know you liked their message. It’s the fastest way to let someone know you saw their message while you’re on the go." I can imagine using that.
@vrypan thanks! you make a good point - this would be most helpful as an email address to make publicly available. I can't imagine it replacing a personal email address, but for a blog or social media profile it could be great.
I love how much you've removed! Truly bold, as @ShaanVP put it: "Front facing camera only. Video only. And no reviewing/filtering/captioning steps required." One interaction = one button = one conversation. However well this particular app does, Blab's model of direct action is going to characterize the next great era of mobile design.
@clarklab came here to post that same thought!
Thanks for the example, @ParksTweet, that looks great! I really like how your solution to the assets problem also helps with team/bios/company culture, which are just as valuable but even more often overlooked components of a, ahem, Brand. I'd love to read your take on how they're related and important - maybe a blog post? #contentmarketing
The product/design team at Wistia has been using it for a few weeks too, and we really like it. We ran into some confusion around whether you're purchasing accounts for individuals or for a team, which the pricing page could explain a little better. Right now we're using a combination of free plans and a Pro plan (one user essentially owns all the boards, which free users can view and...
@parkstweet Thanks! In a brandfolderless world, for every logo we've needed we've had a contact at the other company who then (if they're anything like us) bugs their designer to send us a file. It's not very efficient, but it's rare enough to not be a huge bother. I get the sense that most companies in this situation would prefer to have an assets page but just haven't felt enough pain to...
Great little detail: saying the video length right on the thumbnail - "Brandfolder in 90 seconds."
