Sometimes you just want to show some simple interactions on one page. In pretty much all leading tools, you then need to duplicate the artboards multiple times to show each state. Then connect these artboards in prototyping. Chaos and redundancy ensues. It would be so much easier to access different states of one component/symbol. ![test](https://image.ibb.co/jy6V4z/Bildschirmfoto_2018_09_20_um_11_32_02.png) https://www.designernews.co/stories/97390-design-tools-when-do-we-get-stateful-components Thu, 20 Sep 2018 09:45:12 +0000 2018-09-20T09:45:12+00:00 I Miss Dann Petty https://www.designernews.co/stories/97388-i-miss-dann-petty I miss Dann's weekly design breakdown/news videos, the dude seems super busy these days so i guess they're dead now.

For those who have never been, the Barbican is an incredible arts centre in the heart of London, famous for its brutalist architecture style. The Barbican Conservatory itself is home to exotic fish and over 2,000 species of tropical plants and trees. Instead to taking my camera with me, I thought it would be a nice idea to take a scanner with me instead. I experimented with different ways of capturing the subjects. I worked out that the scanner as a really small depth of field and was extremely sensitive to light. Eventually, I found the best results where when the scanner was face down on the plants with limited light. I think with some modifications to the scanner, I can achieve some really interesting compositions. Such as adding lenses, applying coloured film and making physical modifications. Check out the link, it is a collection of some of the best scans from the day. http://www.sabbakeynejad.co.uk/blog/scanner_ar https://www.designernews.co/stories/97366-i-took-a-computer-scanner-to-a-tropical-garden-the-results-are-amazing Wed, 19 Sep 2018 12:40:55 +0000 2018-09-19T12:40:55+00:00 I miss ffffound https://www.designernews.co/stories/97350-i-miss-ffffound That's it. https://www.designernews.co/stories/97350-i-miss-ffffound Tue, 18 Sep 2018 21:45:21 +0000 2018-09-18T21:45:21+00:00 Sketch 52 quick review https://www.designernews.co/stories/97343-sketch-52-quick-review https://twitter.com/tmgrhm/status/1042081675726016512 https://www.designernews.co/stories/97343-sketch-52-quick-review Tue, 18 Sep 2018 17:35:45 +0000 2018-09-18T17:35:45+00:00 The Sketch Update We’ve All Been Waiting For: STYLE OVERRIDES https://www.designernews.co/stories/97339-the-sketch-update-weve-all-been-waiting-for-style-overrides https://medium.com/ux-power-tools/the-sketch-update-weve-all-been-waiting-for-plus-a-brand-new-ux-power-tools-72c405fd490d https://www.designernews.co/stories/97339-the-sketch-update-weve-all-been-waiting-for-style-overrides Tue, 18 Sep 2018 16:47:10 +0000 2018-09-18T16:47:10+00:00 Adobe XD September release is out https://www.designernews.co/stories/97335-adobe-xd-september-release-is-out Hi Everyone, As follow up to the [XD August release](https://theblog.adobe.com/august-2018-release-of-adobe-xd-reorder-assets-asset-extraction-and-more/), we are pleased to give you the [latest update to XD](https://adobe.ly/2Nhz5Bk) with the following [requested features] (https://adobexd.uservoice.com/) from the community: - [Responsive Resize](https://youtu.be/zzIta6GIS90) - [Timed Transitions](https://youtu.be/Hsa_f-xdzHM) - [Spell Check](https://youtu.be/ZDsLJbg7mZ0) - [Web Prototype Full Screen Viewing ](https://youtu.be/mMoIIJ64cWY) To get the details on what’s new, check out the release post [here](https://adobe.ly/2Nhz5Bk) .
