    This is excellent, thank you for sharing.

    EDIT: Since it appears that you've made this yourself, how do you think these values impact UX for GM products? Any concrete examples you can share?

    Agreed, I didn't interpret this as a means to actually use Sketch in the browser as others seem to, but rather improve Sketch cloud with inspect and collab features. Guess we'll see.

    Sketch is also bringing its tools to the browser starting later this year so users can render an entire document, add developer handoff, and allow editing along with collaboration, all without the need to leave the browser.

    Yes, please.

    Yeah I mean, being new to the industry, it looks like a fairly good impression of a portfolio, but I don't see a lot of you in there, which is what's going to be your biggest selling point so early on.

    I'd pay attention to your contrast ratios (some text is very hard to read) and maybe reconsider all the "sideways iPhone in-hand" glamour shots (pretty dated IMO.) If you're interviewing with SR. designers, they're going to see through all the Dribbble bells and whistles pretty fast, so be prepared to defend any and all decisions.

    Why doesn’t Figma have it now, then? Why drive a Ford when you can drive a Chevy? Why use Mac when you can get a more powerful PC for less?

    A lot of people work for companies and large teams that require incremental buy-in. If you were running one of these teams and jumped from tool to tool every couple of months, god bless.

    Leaving Sketch’s headaches introduces you to the world of Figma’s headaches (and yes, it has plenty.)

    My solution, despite trying plenty of spotty plugin support, is to set the default label as fixed and set the margins as I'd like. Then when I override the label, I just resize the button until the text no longer wraps so that I know it's the correct overall width.

    Is refactoring the correct verb for this process? I actually expected a process that consolidates patterns and removes excess ones.
