I wouldn't really call this design thinking. Please call it 'Graphic Design Thinking' or 'UI Design Thinking' or 'Visual Design Thinking' - but not 'Design Thinking'
'Design Thinking' is a well known term explaining how to approach creative problem solving, see https://www.ideou.com/pages/design-thinking
EDIT: Well, I thought this must be a joke at first, but when I read other comments and the reply by OP to those comments implied that this was meant seriously.
I knew about processing, but didn't think about it as a GUI prototyping tool - more experimenting with interactive graphics and visualisations.
But I can see why you're using it, since you're creating design tools.
This is great - thanks for explaining your process in more detail.
Can you give more details why Processing is amazing for prototyping? I'm using Framer to prototype apps, but always keen to hear what other designers use for creating highly interactive prototypes (not just hot mapped images, i.e. invision etc).
This is a great example of how a UX portfolio should be. Clean and simple with great intro copy - makes you look human.
Enjoyed reading your case studies.
I also like your intro in your 'writing' section. Again makes you look human.
First impression from your site is that you seem to be a great guy to work with - humble and down to earth.
I'd hire you ;)
Congrats on selling a side project.
How did it - is it making money?
In Pixate I was able to add code if I needed to - for more complex interactions or animations. I was also able to export some motion code to iOS. I can't see these features on the ProtoPie website.
Do you know whether these features are available?
Looks good, bookmarked a few articles for my reading list.
So no more Medium for you guys? If so, why?
I'm sure most of the time it will be OK, but there will be one moment where you need to deliver something urgently, but then suddenly Figma's cloud provider or their servers are down or whatever and you're stuck.
With a desktop app and offline capability this couldn't happen and you have peace of mind.
Yes, the motion felt a bit jerky / abrupt towards the end.
Would be great to see a quick motion 'wireframe' from you to see how you would do it differently - great for learning from a motion pro ;)
Well, the good thing with Sketch is you can still use the latest version you paid for and it runs locally.
Figma looks great and I really admire the engineering skills behind it - but I feel uneasy not being able to properly work offline, i.e. having a proper desktop app with local files (not just the electron app connecting to your online repository).
If Figma would be able to do both then I'd seriously consider it.
Be nice. Or else.
