All their design roles (and there were loads) were limited to NY and SF whereas engineering for the same company has multiple remote openings. Have seen this across other companies like Stripe, Pinterest etc. Why is that? Shouldn't these companies be able to offer remote roles especially with the onset of remote payroll startups solving the logistics of it?

Windows, macOS, and HTML seem pretty clear that it is intended only for links which lack the visual affordance that buttons have while Material design and seemingly most web apps embrace the hand for all clickable elements. I haven't found what the official rationale is for using the hand everywhere and I'm also curious what users most expect at this point.The cursor MDN spec.Susan KareWhy is the mouse cursor slightly tilted?Who created the Mac Mickey pointer cursor?Cool Things:Brian shared Mimestream, a native macOS email client for Gmail.

It's basically ruined me for any Marvel movies. However, I have been told that FUI should be seen inspiration to what our future user interfaces (or no-interface) will look and feel like.

They also don't know CSS to be able to make specifications, nor are they able to update the design system.They very often miss things that I have to create a ticket to be fixed later, and spend so much time in communication when asking me to check their work, that I might as well have reviewed it myself, and the time they spent trying to figure out an issue, could've been better used at doing what they're good at.Unfortunately, I'm the only designer (out of a team of 20+ devs and several QA people), so they want me to focus on designing at a higher level (wireframes, mocks, etc.), not checking for minor details. I also haven't worked at a bigger company that has more than 1 designer, so am wondering how does it work at other companies? Any shared processes / experiences would be greatly appreciated.Cool Things:Brian shared Succession, a well-made show about terrible people.Marshall shared Twelve Minutes, an interactive thriller-puzzle game about a man trapped in a time loop.Design Details on the Web:📻 We are @designdetailsfm🎙 Brian is @brian_lovin🎙 Marshall is @marshallbock 🙌 Support us on Patreon - your support literally makes this show possible.
