Product Hunt Daily Digest
December 12th, 2018

We're calling BS on the right/brain left brain thing. If you work on the web in any capacity, you should be able to understand (and master!) good design. 🙌

Yesterday, Refactoring UI: The Book — a resource for product people who want to up their design skills —launched on Product Hunt. The reviews (and over 1K upvotes) flurried in:

“Read this book in one go. It only took 1.5 hours, which is something other books should aspire to achieve. I don't know that I've ever consumed that much knowledge about a topic in such a short time. It's really packed full of actionable tips.” - Peter

“I usually dread the design aspect of building something, but with every section I find myself actually excited imagining how to implement these ideas on current projects.” - John

Makers Adam Wathan and Steve Schoger have been exploring ways developers can get better at designing their own projects for a while, and the new book packages all their knowledge into one biiiiig resource. 📖

They primarily focus on how actual tactics —like using fewer borders in your designs — can be learned and used by literally anyone.

The “book” itself is actually a PDF and costs $79, or $149 for the book, screencasts, a component gallery, an icon library and a few other goodies.

If you've decided to pivot to design after this, here's some #inspo to get you started (besides Dribbble) 😉
