Best thing I'll ever make.
Finalizing my p5.js sketchplugin. It will allow designers to write p5.js code directly inside Sketch. Releasing this or next week after months of work. It's a bit bittersweet.
I will beta test the shit out of this
I can't figure out how to send you a DM but shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a link for beta testing :)
Sent - Thanks Jacopo!
Not a side project but I'm learning 3D modeling in Blender, I'm getting more and more fascinated by it.
What resources are you using the learn?
Working on a new landing page for Pastel www.usepastel.com
Love it! Did you draw those amazing illustrations yourself?
Thank you! No, had a friend illustrate it for us :)
that is your own project/business? looks amazing...
Yes it is! Thank you. Our current challenge is to figure out how to surface the trial/demo beyond the sign up form. Have some ideas to make the hero into a mini product demo. Gonna be a fun exploration though!
Wow, love the visual direction you took. What was the inspiration for the product?
Thanks Jonathan! As freelancers, we used screenshots and emails to track feedback to iterate on websites. That got annoying very quickly so we wanted to create a simple click and type experience on the websites we were working on. Thanks for asking :)

Absolutely love this. Thanks for sharing!
This is rad! Just spent a few minutes going through it. Bookmarked.
Great. Thank you.
This is awesome! Thank you for this.
I am exploring VueJS these days and try to build a shopping app for me and my girlfriend :P maria.withlarry.com
Interesting take! How do you guys use this? Do you stop by the store daily to get certain items? When do you know to grab your weekly or monthly items? Will it have reminders?
Good questions Andy! I make the same questions for myself as well. To be honest I don't think Daily/Weekly/Monthly Categorization will stay. That was just my logic of doing groceries. Probably it will be 3 main categories (like: Food, Cleaning Stuff, I don't know... still working on that). The idea is that all categories "export" into the same bucket(list) if one of the items has an amount more than 0. Ideally you would be able to export the list to a To-Do app, print it or just use the app in the supermarket will you shop.
This also works as inspiration when you want to make your groceries list. My girlfriend always forgets what she wants when I go to the supermarket, so having a list of things we have bought before is very convenient.
It's very early stage of the app and also a playground for me to learn VueJs, but fun and hopefully useful as well.
I def will create the option to have personal accounts and then have combined lists with people you want.
Cool, this all makes sense. I use Google Keep for groceries and for anything needing a list really, and it works really well. They also autocomplete groceries you've entered in the past, or just food items in general, it's pretty sweet! There's some good inspiration there.
I'm always intrigued by little projects like these and seeing how different people think and organize information, even when it's simple things like groceries. Thanks for sharing!
Yeah, and btw, regarding the reminders. I haven't given it a lot of thought yet but I was thinking for 3 types of them. 1) Based on how many things are in the basket (more than 20 means you need to go to the super market) 2) Location based (you woke next to the supermarket, hey why not buy some of the stuff on the list) 3) Time based (just finished work, buy some stuff before going back home).
I recently got into photogrammetry, which is reconstructing objects or scenes in 3d using a series of photographs. I'm trying to do my backyard:
actual photo (for reference): https://i.imgur.com/rVqQuoj.jpg
I'm using a tool called Agisoft Photoscan to do the work. I've definitely run into a few issues with shooting on a sunny day (trying to maintain the same exposure and lens flairs :/ )
Not super happy with the results yet. Gonna keep working on it.
That's awesome! Working image links if anyone else is getting a 403 (https://imgur.com/SNj55Bh, https://imgur.com/rVqQuoj).
I've been working on learning SketchUp to design an addition to our shed. Something like this would be super nice, manually measuring and modeling was slow. Canvas seemed like another interesting option.
Working on clean, open-source UI Library/Framework for Vue.js :)
Keep us posted! I'm a fan of UI libraries, and especially anything Vue-related.
can we have a look? :) keep us posted!
Watching The Exorcist tv show. I just wrapped a 9-month side project so I'm taking a break.
Still working on FontBase :)
loving font base. keep it up!
Hey fellow designers, this weekend a few of us created a tool called: Basil Chat Basil Chat is a tool for designers, developers, product people and other creatives! Sometimes we all need a second opinion on our designs. That is why there is Basil. Write us your question and we will try to provide the best feedback.
Try for free here: https://www.basil.chat/
How we made it: https://medium.com/getting-design-feedback-right/hacking-intercom-to-build-a-mvp-b553a5c248d4
Check it out ;)
Mobile needs some work.
Working on a mobile app game. Doing everything from the UX/UI and asset creation side while my S/O is working on the development on Unity.
Just finished a project with my SO! https://sickdaybox.com Switched from the Shopify platform to just a Shopify buy button in order to use our own designs and their order management backend.
nice. been debating how im tackling my next shopify based brand for awhile. have been on the platform forever but getting tired of all the work arounds.

Really like your own chart implementation.
These days, I'm exploring the Web Audio API --> https://music.sonalee.me/
Continuing to design new features and clean up CSS for Tally App a web app that rates your political representatives by non-partisan metrics. Super open to any feedback as we add features and data sources.
I love this! I'm currently working on a small web app for creating and distributing ranked choice polls in order to show its benefits over traditional plurality voting.
Thanks! That's a cool idea, is that by any chance the way places like Australia run their elections or am I confusing concepts?
Yes, that's exactly right! Nicky Case put together an amazing "explorable explanation" for voting systems here: http://ncase.me/ballot/
Wow, this interactive article is awesome. How have I not seen this before?
I lowkey have a crush on Nicky Case. Glad you like it!
Currently redesigning my product review blog, while keeping busy with inktober - http://minimalgoods.co/
I just finished up (and am still working on) https://todo.jasonet.co, It's a GitHub App that opens up new issues based on code comments.
Oh, clever. Never thought to use comments to create issues.
I love this. Unfortunately I just moved away from Github but this is fantastic.
The design will mostly be the same, but we're switching to a different stack, changing the way collections work, and creating a shop.
Switching stacks is a lot of work! What are you switching to? Also, what will you be selling in your shop?
Revamping the landing page for magicpay
I am working on the redesign of the start up storyrocket.com
I'm also having tons of fun with my tiny whoop and learning to fly in acro mode.
Oh yeah, and I've been working on some patches/fixes for Sketchpacks.
The weekend just past, I prepared and raced an old car in an amateur dirt rally event. Managed to take 3rd overall from a grid of 12 cars. Pic
The coming weekend I'll be working on my actual race car. Pic
She needs a brake/clutch fluid change and new rubber on the rear. I'll probably also give it a good bath.
I prefer to have something physical to play with on the weekend, when I'm not stuck in front of a computer monday-friday.
Trying to do a re-design of a website in Figma... Being a long time user of Photoshop and recently Sketch, Figma feels quite familiar and feels nice to work with.
A marketplace that connects brand minded Amazon shoppers and sellers.
I'm making some minor updates to my main side project Dubolt, mainly some minor interaction tweaks and some backend setup for some new features not directly relying on Spotify.
I'm also working on my portfolio, which I haven't really updated in a few years and is really long in the tooth.
Working on a Behance page for a site I made for author Liska Jacobs. https://www.behance.net/gallery/57552659/Liska-Jacobs-Author-Site Feedback on the Behance page and/or the site is welcome.
Cooking up some final front-end mocks for the new messaging engine of Design Mentors, http://designmentors.org
Awesome, love the icon illustrations! Did you do them?
Can't take credit, they are the combined amazing work of Charlie B Coombs (http://www.cbcoombsvisual.com/) and Mark Roberts (http://swatchandpixel.com/)
As always, I'm just cranking away on my songwriting app, Hum. Inches away from having multiple recordings per Hum.
Working on a new tab page for chrome with a visual overview and filter for your favourite bookmarks! Need this product for a long time and build it now for my own.
Not so much a side project but been doing a bit of tidying and style updating on the Offroacode site and started playing around with css grid on our starter kit
Love your landing page for GGather.com. Also the ability to subscribe to people's collection seems really useful!
Finished Saturday morning, took like 8 hours alltogether : ) http://surdologopeda.pl/nowa - the yellow faces are not mine, though (it's part of the new brand identity), I did the rest of the design and coding in Bootstrap and CMS Made Simple : )
Workin on the forums for my wallpaper search engine: https://wallhalla.com
Continued work on my front end development starter kit https://github.com/alexcarpenter/butane-project-starter
Just finished up #plaidurday celebrations and now moving on to the Fresh Coast Film Festival http://freshcoastfilm.com
It's really nice! My only thought/worry is the widow in your large headline on the desktop.
I'm helping these guys out with their design https://github.com/learn-anything/maps
