Stop solving real problems once in a while – UX Collective

We sometimes take things too seriously and thus overrate people sharing their shiny design and code experiments with the world.

Heard of dark mode? Of course, you have. Dark mode is said to reduce eye strain, it has grown in popularity, and user demand. Sketch recently released a new version of their software offering the dark side of the screen, thus addressing a user need and solving a user problem. Beside other UI changes, they also introduced other details such as the one shown in the image below. When in dark mode the bitmap icon turns from a day into a night scenery by changing the sun into a moon picto. Neat!

In Sketch’s dark mode the bitmap icon changes from day to night by showing the moon instead of the sun.

This detail pointed out by my co-worker did not only leave me with a smile on my face. It also reminded me of a topic that has been tackled many times but remains debated.
