    Same here, 38 years. Was in web-design for over two decades, but grew more and more tired of the entire field over time. The constant pressure, the constant need to learn this, that and that (and this technique of course). Of course, you can never stop learning these days, but the web-design field is some crazy area. Sometimes I wished to be a bus driver. Just sit, brain off and drive. ;)

    Lately, I’ve had the huge opportunity to transition away from design, into a totally different field. I’m a product owner now, so basically manage people of the type I used to be before. So, like other people say, try to go into a managing role when you grow older, it’s just a natural process. Of course, it’s hard to do if you get no opportunity, but I think if you keep your eyes open for such positions there will be one sometime.

    I still believe in good Karma, and a side-project can also help. Without the many I pursued in my life I wouldn’t be where I am now.

    Thanks, Marc. Since I’m working on Gravit Designer, I’m of course very interested what the competition is doing – and I consider Skala to be quite a competition (honestly, more than Sketch and Figma). So I’m looking forward to your release.

    Basically, I totally agree, if you are a designer and make your living in this job, then paying $99 shouldn't be an issue at all. But don’t forget the people in the world out there, who can’t effort that, but still want to design something, or want to get into design, or the "typical housewife, who likes to create an invitation for her girl."

    Designing is not always about us westerners or professional designers. Our prime principle at Gravit Designer is to give everybody the chance to design, independent of state or location.

    That’s just the default theme, you can always switch to “Dark” or “Light” in the Settings (Edit).

    What’s your progress on Skala, by the way?

    I’m very sorry that you don’t want to take our offer for a free Sketch alternative and rather pay $99 instead of using a "blatant copy". Meanwhile, you could try that, that or that in Sketch.

    This is unfortunate and slipped through our radar. This was meant just for development, we are very sorry for this. Should be fixed soon.

    Hey Diego, that’s the "anchoring" functionality I’m talking about in the article. It’s available in the inspector in the top right. Hope that helps. If you have more questions, just ping us. Stacking is not available yet, though.
