    Awesome stuff man.

    Just a heads up that decimal commas and decimal fractions vary according from country. I could be wrong but I don't think there are any countries that use the dollar that also use decimal fractions (e.g. $6,99). Your pricing is in dollars (I'm guessing USD?) but it's also using the decimal fraction which could be a tiny bit confusing at first glance. Not a big issue, but just thought I'd point it out.

    Not sure how practical it is (in terms of slowing you down while you sketch), but a good little idea nonetheless. And lovely promo video.

    Oh small start ups with great brands. Damn, I've got a few actually, just can't remember them off the top of my head (exactly why your list is handy hahah).

    https://whereby.com/ is a good one by Heydays. https://notion.so/ is one of my favourites. I think it's done in house but I'm not entirely sure. https://framer.com/ I think in house as well.

    Those are the ones I remember at the moment. I'll update the list as I remember more.

    Sweet list, been looking for something like this. Better than trying to keep all of them in memory.

  • Posted to Does a UX Designer Need to Learn Coding?, Jun 01, 2020

    If your role involves designing UI and/or interactions, I think learning even the basics of HTML/CSS/JS goes a really long way. Do designers "need" to, not really. But it helps tremendously.

    Anecdote obvs but it's drastically improved how I've communicated with the devs on my team. Especially in terms of interactions. I can quickly make a component in Codepen, make it look exactly how I have it in my designs, and make the interaction exactly how I imagine it would work. Less guesswork by the devs. Less going back and forth with "Nah it's still missing X. The timing for Y feels weird".

    I did try Origami a few years ago but stopped since it started getting slow with larger files. Looking forward to seeing this one though.

  • Posted to Humaaans, will it replace freelance designers?, May 28, 2020

    Depends who you're talking about? I think for projects with low budgets or ones that put less emphasis on design, possibly. But for anything larger, I highly doubt it. Illustrations are part of your brand image. You want them to be consistent with your brand and strengthen it - which you can do by having illustrations that are unique to your brand and fit the context they are placed in (i.e. by hiring a freelancer).

    Don't get me wrong though, I think it's a great tool and it lowers the barrier of entry for non-designers and for projects with smaller budgets. Kinda like Unsplash. Good to get started with but as your projects get bigger, these tools start to limit your creative control and you'll need to hire a freelancer.
