comment What are the best mac applications for developing pixel art?
@JoeBlow 'nothing could be less useful' < Pretty strong claim. Why the hate? I can think of plenty of things that are worse. It may not be right for every project, but it has a fantastic export model and a very intuitive UI. In fact, it's gotten dramatically better since I posted this over 2 years ago.

comment Logo critique: Which version is stronger?
This isn't a critique site. But while the question is open... Go with the second direction. It conveys the earthy, farm-to-table, craft mood you're probably after. The first one looks like clothes for toddlers.

@JanusBahsJacquet you got me there. I missed that odd y. And when I zoom in to the other fuzzy details it's definitely something slabish. This is going to bug me all day.

@JanusBahsJacquet Wait a second... you're not the OP. How can you possibly say definitely from that image?

Not Clarendon, I assume. You're going to have to post a better image.

comment Bootstrap buttons - text hard to read?
@DmitriZaitsev The problem with the font here is the font-weight, IIRC. Open Sans is wonderfully readable when set well. Typography is not the SE designer's strong suit. I actually replace the typography completely with a user script - - I find the design unbearable.

comment Bootstrap buttons - text hard to read?
@DmitriZaitsev if your concern is quality font rendering and overall presentation, just load the Open Sans webfont. Minimal added site weight, complexity is a one time upload, and browsers are only expanding webfont support now. If you don't care about any of that, why even spec 'Open Sans' at all - - just use sans-serif and let the user decide.

comment Bootstrap buttons - text hard to read?
@DmitriZaitsev if you're concerned about reliability, local fonts are about as bad as it gets. Honestly, just download the font and host with your site files. Then the fonts only go down when the site does.

comment Bootstrap buttons - text hard to read?
@DmitriZaitsev Google has actually been pretty stable with their services. But the fonts are mostly (all?) open source, so you can download and install them wherever you like. Some of them are on FontSquirrel too.

comment Bootstrap buttons - text hard to read?
Well, it's pretty hard to find an example of it in use these days. It used to be the Mac Finder font, several OS X generations ago. I would simply test it in context against other options. Considering that you can use the ones I listed for free, you've got nothing to lose.

comment Bootstrap buttons - text hard to read?
@DmitriZaitsev I expanded my answer a bit to emphasize the need to customize. Bootstrap never wanted you to use those defaults. For the record, I wouldn't use Lucida Grande either. It was designed for a different era of displays and tends to look clunky in a modern environment.

comment Material Design Colors fit
Material gives you a broad spectrum of color recommendations, but you aren't limited to them. In this case, your buttons look deactivated because they are a fade of your primary color. Read up on the many questions here on color-theory and come back when you have a more specific question.

comment How to make vector templates from CSS frameworks?
The reason you're getting down-voted is because you're asking: "How do I create a design based on another design?" That's a big workflow question that has as much to do with preference as it does with efficiency.

comment Import or Sync Symbols between Sketch Files
Really hoping someone picks up development of SketchToolbox again. It's a great utility.

comment Which sizes should I deliver icons in? (Desktop, not web)
The whole point of ico files is embedding a range of resolutions appropriate for the destination. Sketch has a built in template for OSX icons. You'd have to export then generate your ico.

comment Why is it a bad idea to reuse a logo typeface elsewhere in branding?
^ all that. Keep it special. There's also a good chance that your design isn't very good if the mark is text you could just type out with a font. Very few typefaces are optimized to make your combination of letters look as special as they should.

Good answers often require context.

comment What is the purpose of having outside gutters on a responsive grid?
Notice this in the question: "on a responsive grid?" I think Ben understands how to keep things off the side of the viewport. The problem isn't "what are they" it's "why do you need them in Sketch".

comment What is the purpose of having outside gutters on a responsive grid?
@AAGD Sorry, didn't mean to blow you mind. We're talking about Sketch here, so % width and centered isn't a real option. You have to work in hard values, which is why the outside gutters switch is such a handy feature. ... It's funny that this answer gets under people's skin. I guess you're not a Sketch user.
