Influence: A New Way to Present Design Work

As designers, we need to rally people behind ideas and concepts. Presenting work regularly helps us influence organizations, get stakeholder buy-in and give projects the momentum they need to be successful. The problem is, design work doesn’t speak for itself. The thought process behind each decision, the research we’ve done and the data we’ve collected is often unknown. Designers need a way to present all the different parts of their work in a simple, clear way. Meet the new Influence: ... Read More

Reduce the Noise by Muting Single Projects!

To preface, the activity feed is a feature we're introducing with the New Notable platform. Using the activity feed, you're able to see notifications for any edits, comments or added assets to a project. Sometimes you might feel like your activity feed is getting out of control, but we have the solution: project muting! Notifications are nice, but too many aren't helpful.

Wow, it’s been almost a year since we gave a public update on what we’ve been working on. If you’re a current user you’ve probably gotten our emails sharing what we’ve been doing.

Heartbleed Bug and ZURB Design Apps: What We're Doing About It

Last night, a vulnerability called Heartbleed was exposed in OpenSSL, an open source library that’s responsible for encrypting data over HTTPS for much of the web. At this time there is no indication that any ZURB properties have been breached or that any of our user data has been leaked. Nevertheless, we are taking this threat very seriously. While most of our apps are unaffected, Notable, Solidify, Verify and Influence are potentially vulnerable to the Heartbleed exploit. We are working ... Read More
