  • "Call me a pedant, but... The headline would read better as 'An Industrial Designer's Take On...', making it obvious that 'designer's' is - correctly - apostrophized, singular. It looks like a misplaced apostrophe for a plural '[Some] Designers Take on...'Nitpicking over. Back to the article!"

  • "This is a version of an existing product - 'Isosketch' that's been around in the UK for several years now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyhcYLbb52cI fI were the Isosketch creator I'd be well annoyed at this. But I guess it's different enough not to step on any patent or copyright toes? I use it in class, for beginner drawing lessons, and I agree with the post - like all things I think it's better to develop the skills manually  and than if you choose to use a shortcut tool, fine. But as I tell my kids, if they draw only using the Isosketch then they'll always do work that looks like that and is limited in scope. The constraints of the education system here means that actual skills are undervalued; and the opportunities to teach good graphical skills doesn't fit easily into the narrow (easily examined) curriculum."
