Conceptual design

Consider this post is about visual design. A duct taped banana. This piece of art was sold for $150,000 in December 2019 at Miami's Art Basel . Actually $120K x 4 + $150K = $630,000. Not bad for 10 cents banana and few inches of duct tape. This became a sensation of 2019-2020. Why and how it happened brings up some questions about modern society and economy. How artists (or art dealers, or anyone else) create value from nothing? And emphasize the importance of the idea. In this particular case it's nothing more than an idea. Is this the art we'd like to see? Probably not. But perhaps it's the art we deserve.

How do I use InVision

Team lead asked me to write what InVision products do I use, how I use them, what are pros and cons. I wrote it today, and really think it will be helpful to share my thoughts with wider audience. So, below is the adaptation of what I provided to the engineering management in one fintech company.  I use InVision to share my hi-fi designs and specs, which I create in Sketch desktop application. This is my primary and every day usage of InVision, and about 90% of all usecases of all InVision products combined.  I sync designs via the plugin in Sketch made by Invision, called Craft .  When they are in InVision, we call those designs prototypes .  It works, but I often experience slowness. Sometimes sync process is failing, and I have to try it again. In Sketch I select one or more artboards, then initiate sync, which sends the artboard to InVision cloud. I have to be logged in Craft plugin with my InVision credentials. Almost every day, especially when I design intensely and re-publish
