    Interaction/animation prototyping. …No?

    Ok a simpler one: how about just make text layers align properly. Snap to the baseline, and all text size and leading changes happen from that reference point.

    Text bounding boxes are so useless.

    Just stop using Photoshop :) that muscle memory goes away after awhile…

    Is this not working for anyone else in 3.3.1 or is it just me?

    Given, the terminal command doesn't work either, nothing back from Sketch support yet.

    Dishoom

    second that, it's fucking tasty. (once you get over the slightly colonialist vibe.)

  • Posted to I'm staying in SF for 3 months. Any good recommendations, people to meet?, Apr 23, 2015

    Open invitation if you want to go to the Exploratorium (for free). I have a membership and can bring guests.

    Highly recommend any Exploratorium nightlife stuff — less kids running around, + booze. De Young and Legion of Honor (lots of Rodin, some visiting fashion stuff) are some other good museums if you're into capital A Art.

    There's a long list of good coffee places to go to in SF, but nearby you you'll have Blue Bottle at the Mint, and Sightglass in Soma. Also see Four Barrel, Ritual, etc etc etc.

    Great food is to be had pretty much everywhere — Foursquare won't do you wrong. Near Union Square, there's a ton of great Vietnamese restaurants in the Tenderloin (not the nicest neighborhood fyi), also other classics like Brenda's French Soul Food. Also be sure to do a weekend SF brunch at a hyped up brunch place just for the experience of waiting absurdly long in line (or go "early" & skip the line).

    +1 Google Music

    Because Songza playlists, and I can upload weird music not in their library for listening / backup.

    usually downtempo / trip hop: massive attack, tricky, portishead. or latin/south american: gotan project or classical argentine tango (separate obsession), novalima, tinariwen or other african blues. been exploring more old school hip hop lately.

  • Posted to Ask DN: What water bottle do you use?, Feb 09, 2015

    1L Platypus soft bottle. Takes up no space when it's empty (can fold it up and stash it in your pocket), and even if you keep water in it for a long time, it doesn't taste funky.

    Used to bike every day at my last job, and I miss it a ton. Built an old French Bertin road bike into a fixed gear (we have ways to get around the hills in SF), have ridden with classic Chrome messenger bags and now a Mission Workshop Sanction rucksack.
