The last version of Internet Explorer, version 11, was released on October 17, 2013. This is a very long time ago when taking into account the rapid development of web technologies. These days it is often difficult and time consuming to get modern technologies to work well in this old browser. More and more frameworks are dropping support, and even Microsoft themselves has announced that they will fully drop support for IE in their own services in 2021.
Consequently, we have decided to not include support for IE in the Design Library website.
Luckily, there are modern options in active development. Please use Firefox, Edge or Chrome instead.
Be brave, challenge your design and push boundaries!
Design evolves. This is maybe most apparent in digital contexts. As new technology arise new behaviours and possibilities emerge. To stay relevant we need to evolve our own design. This is a constant state of which we as designers live in.
When faced with new challenges not previously encountered we need to step outside of what we know and try new things. We need to be brave and embrace failure. Failure is needed to know what success looks like.
In situations of creating never before seen solutions its important to find strength in numbers. Great design is seldom the result of one brain but rather the collaboration between multiple great minds.
Push the boundaries of what a product can look like, try things out, discuss with your colleagues, put up sketches on the walls, critique yourself and others in constructive ways to find a way forward.
Its also important to not get too attached to an idea, visual design or way of thinking. Kill your darlings as the expression goes, the best solution might still be out there.
