comment How do you edit or simply add color to downloaded vector Icons?
Since they're vectors, this'll be much easier in a vector design application like Illustrator or one of its alternatives than in Photoshop

comment Can good design, contrary to Dieter Rams' 10 design principles, be an “end in itself”?
I think Deiter Rams here is actually saying design innovation shouldn't be an end in itself: that innovation in design should have actual identifiable benefits linked to the tech or product or content or purpose the design is for, not just innovation for innovation's sake or novelty value.

comment How can I explain to my client that more than two fonts in a logo is a bad idea?
+1 and damn you beat me to it, I was looking forward to starting an answer with "Your client choosing fonts for you is like you choosing spanners for your mechanic"

+1 It's definitely a good idea to make things tangible and factual, and showing clients what you're saying in the context of their competitors helps them see why it matters

...and particularly Alan G's tips here, especially "Don't ever make the client wrong, especially when they are"

I'd disagree. You just need to speak "Mrs Important"'s language and understand his/her priorities. They won't listen to abstract talk about design principles, but something like "We're not maximising the power of your message the way your competitors are. Look, your competitor's logo speaks with one clear, powerful, consistent voice. To speak louder than them, our logo also has to speak clearer" [adjust according to client]

comment How do I make an incomplete circle stroke for a donut chart?
+1 this is a great option if you want to get creative in any way. Just make sure it's accurate and that any embellishments don't get in the way of the information (creating the rectangles with the graph tool's 'Stacked bar' then ungrouping is a good idea)

comment Difference between brand/design style guide and a UI Pattern Library and how to avoid conflicts?
@michaellai if the brand guidelines are well structured, there will be some clear general guiding principles that apply to everything, then each document will simply be the detail of how those are realised in different areas
