The happenings of the day.
Agreed with the other fine folk here — great work! Must feel good to ship such an important feature. Clink the digital champagne.- Matt Brown on Designing Facebook Places
“Out of all the different directions a design could go. The best one is the one that gets finished and ships.”
And that’s really what it’s all about, beyond the pixel pushing and product arguments: getting something in the hands of consumers makes all what we do worth it. The saying “Done is better than perfect” is common around halls of Facebook, and it’s one I’m sure makes some designers cringe a bit. I know I did when I first heard it, but after working at Facebook for nearly a year and a half now, I see the wisdom of it.
It will never be perfect, get over it. Your job is to make it as perfect as you can before it goes out the door.
Said another way, “ship it”.
