It seems like there's still a ton that can be accomplished as a colorblind designer, but I'd love to connect him with someone who can speak from experience.

One thing that I'm deeply passionate about is the raw data behind a design. Although I'm convinced that great design comes from a mix of intuition and expertise, I also believe that design is at a micro-level a complex science. I continuously try to do things to uncover the data behind a design and understand why things work or don't work. That's why today I'm introducing a revamped detail view in Waveguide Landing Pages section. Now every landing page example in [Waveguide](https://www.waveguide.io/landing-pages/all/) shows a semantic analysis based on the content of that page. The semantic metrics that Waveguide will show are: - **Sentiment**: What's the overall sentiment of a page. - **Reading Ease**: How complicated is the text of a page based on education level (measured in School Grades) - **Read Time**: How long does it take to read the whole content at average human reading speed. - **Tone**: What are the emotions and communication style in the page. ![Landing Page Analysis] (https://i.imgur.com/DgHVqag.png) Besides that, you can also see the color palette of the page (tip: click on the color to copy the hex value to your clipboard). I'm also trying to gauge some interest in providing these metrics on demand for your own designs. If you would be interested in a service where you could upload your design and get these metrics, please let me know. Anyways. Looking forward to your comments and thoughts. You can see the landing pages with semantic metrics here: [Waveguide - Landing Pages Examples] (https://www.waveguide.io/landing-pages/all/) https://www.designernews.co/stories/96767-waveguide--landing-page-semantic-metrics- Tue, 21 Aug 2018 18:18:53 +0000 2018-08-21T18:18:53+00:00 Dribbble redesigns its shot view? https://www.designernews.co/stories/96766-dribbble-redesigns-its-shot-view http://dribbble.com https://www.designernews.co/stories/96766-dribbble-redesigns-its-shot-view Tue, 21 Aug 2018 18:17:47 +0000 2018-08-21T18:17:47+00:00 Chrome 69 will take the next step to killing Flash, roll out new design https://arstechnica.com/?p=1362157 Flash will have to be enabled every time a site tries to use it. https://arstechnica.com/?p=1362157 Tue, 21 Aug 2018 17:26:03 +0000 2018-08-21T17:26:03+00:00 My Experience and Advice for Using GPUs in Deep Learning: Which GPU(s) to get http://timdettmers.com/2018/08/21/which-gpu-for-deep-learning/ <a href="https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=17811472">Comments</a> https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=17811472 Tue, 21 Aug 2018 17:04:59 +0000 2018-08-21T17:04:59+00:00 Startups that launched today at Y Combinator’s S18 Demo Day 1 https://techcrunch.com/2018/08/20/here-are-the-63-startups-that-launched-today-at-y-combinators-s18-demo-day-1/ <a href="https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=17811181">Comments</a> https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=17811181 Tue, 21 Aug 2018 16:41:53 +0000 2018-08-21T16:41:53+00:00 What to Do After Finding Hot Connectors on Overhead Power Lines (2017) [video] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=piQpLL5nD18 <a href="https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=17811051">Comments</a> https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=17811051 Tue, 21 Aug 2018 16:29:40 +0000 2018-08-21T16:29:40+00:00 Introducing Ghost 2.0 https://www.designernews.co/stories/96762-introducing-ghost-20 https://blog.ghost.org/2-0/ https://www.designernews.co/stories/96762-introducing-ghost-20 Tue, 21 Aug 2018 16:18:44 +0000 2018-08-21T16:18:44+00:00 Sponsor: Live Now: UX / UI design with Kyle Grady, Lisa Inoue and Jermaine Boca https://www.designernews.co/stories/96760-sponsor-live-now-ux--ui-design-with-kyle-grady-lisa-inoue-and-jermaine-boca https://adobe.ly/2FpioQv https://www.designernews.co/stories/96760-sponsor-live-now-ux--ui-design-with-kyle-grady-lisa-inoue-and-jermaine-boca Tue, 21 Aug 2018 16:00:53 +0000 2018-08-21T16:00:53+00:00 How to Make a Conversion-driven SaaS Landing page [2018 edition] https://www.designernews.co/stories/96759--how-to-make-a-conversiondriven-saas-landing-page-2018-edition https://www.cortes.design/post/how-to-make-a-conversion-driven-saas-landing-page-2018-edition https://www.designernews.co/stories/96759--how-to-make-a-conversiondriven-saas-landing-page-2018-edition Tue, 21 Aug 2018 16:00:02 +0000 2018-08-21T16:00:02+00:00 Wander Dream Journal by Baron Fig https://www.designernews.co/stories/96757-wander-dream-journal-by-baron-fig https://www.baronfig.com/products/wander https://www.designernews.co/stories/96757-wander-dream-journal-by-baron-fig Tue, 21 Aug 2018 15:52:41 +0000 2018-08-21T15:52:41+00:00 PHP 7.2 is now available in Google App Engine standard environment (beta) https://cloud.google.com/appengine/docs/standard/php7/ <a href="https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=17810591">Comments</a> https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=17810591 Tue, 21 Aug 2018 15:41:54 +0000 2018-08-21T15:41:54+00:00 Dark Tequila Banking Malware Uncovered After 5 Years of Activity http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheHackersNews/~3/vOdHq3l5DRc/mexico-banking-malware.html Security researchers at Kaspersky Labs have uncovered a new, complex malware campaign that has been targeting customers of several Mexican banking institutions since at least 2013.

And how we've launched our MVP. https://www.designernews.co/stories/96740-the-importance-of-branding-in-a-startup-world-and-how-weve-launched-our-mvp ![](https://storychief.io/images/tild6166-6634-4536-b561-653333383964__storychiefpipe1qfvs7.gif) So here is a short story. It's 2016, we had an idea based on the pain we've seen our clients struggle with on a daily basis. Their SEO flows for articles and multichannel publishing was a mess. We were running our branding & digital agency back then. Three people, different backgrounds, same target. What do we start with? Logo! That's right, we knew a bit what we were going to make, we knew a little bit less about how we were going to make it, but we knew for sure that we needed a kickass logo and UX for our new tool! Design first approach, as we call it. Took us 3 months to brainstorm about the MVP and to find a great NAME, and then we started designing. After 6 months of redesigning, brainstorming and testing the MVP we had our branding, one-pager with 'early subscription' form, and we knew how we would program our software. But we didn't write any code yet. We launched our story in a local blogging community. And it was huge, I remember we had a slack notification for each lead coming in and in the first half hour it was constantly making noise :)) We gathered 700 leads within two hours. Strangely enough, the most comments were related to the branding of the app. Folks loved our concept and logo. Now two years later our tool has grown a lot and it's a full-time job with 10 people in the company. ![StoryChief.com](https://storychief.io/images/tild3135-6531-4734-b838-333430353733__storychief_logo.gif) Today we are on [Product Hunt](https://www.producthunt.com/posts/seo-tool-by-storychief) by the way. So start with well-designed branding folks!
