    I'm looking at this from two perspectives: UX designer and illustrator. The first one doesn't use an iPad at all for any design work (pen and paper mostly). It just doesn't fit my way of working. I believe you could ask yourself why you would like to use an iPad? Why you would like to make that change? If you believe it's going to improve your work somehow just try it for a month or so. If it won't work, then come back to your previous way of working. Don't force yourself to use it just because it supposed to help you work better / faster or whatever.

    As for the illustration side, I just recently switched to an iPad with Apple Pencil. Before I was drawing and making finished illustrations only on paper now I work only on the iPad. Why? Because it fits my style of working as an illustrator :) I was VERY sceptic at the beginning but I started first with this idea in mind: how can I replicate my current way of working on iPad so I don't feel I have to use just because I have it. I tried it and it worked:) Now I can move forward and explore more things that are different or was hard to achieve with my previous style.

    As for the tips:

    1. try to think why you like so much your current way of working and try to replicate that on the iPad to see if it's possible - if you like to be messy just do the same on iPad. If you like carrying around your sketchbook just do the same with an iPad.

    2. don't erase sketches, just leave it as it is. you won't run our of pice of paper on iPad so sketch as much as you can - later this will reinforce you by showing you how much progress you made

    3. sometimes to replicate your current way of working you might have to buy some apps or plugins, do whatever takes ;) try to reach the point where you can say to yourself - ok I think this is close enough. After that, you probably going to make the final decision if you want to use it or not :)

    Not sure I this all make any sense hehe If you have questions feel free to ask :) Cheers!

    Really nice, I even learned about SNIPER LINKS! Awesome :D And I managed to used keyboard-only all the time, nice one!

    Small feedback: Would be great to have the option to start again once you finish :)

    Just to be on the same page, I'm referring to this design (that was before the current one) and looks like this: https://web.archive.org/web/20190128015340/https://realtimeboard.com/

    And you are right there is nothing wrong with influences, I was more curious if this is something that is starting some kind of trend in web design like we saw with illustrations last year. Does Slack go with real photos because the market around them was oversaturated with that style or something else?

    O_o wow :D now I see, and I haven't been their user back then, now I know why ;) So since then they had other design than the actual one, based on freehand forms and illustrations.
