    I highly recommend giving the pomodoro technique a try. Not only does it help with focussing / productivity but it also helps to quantify your time and give you an insight into how you spend your time and what you get done with it.

    Yeah in my experience too Figma almost always feels faster and smoother than Sketch

  • Posted to I built one of Sketch’s largest online communities. Here's why I’m joining Figma, in reply to Mike Stevenson , Feb 22, 2018

    I've had the opposite experience and would be hard pushed to go back to Sketch. The collaborative part for me is most useful when going through designs with clients and developers though, rather than working with other designers. Being able to tweak parts of the design and have developers / clients / remote team members see these changes happen real time has been very useful.

    Aside from that, Figma has better handling of art boards, grids, images and components imo.

  • Posted to What invoicing billing tools do you recommend for freelancing?, in reply to iterati design , Oct 27, 2017

    I used to invoice this way however I now (using Wave) find it easier to keep track of invoices I've sent, see when they are due, keep track of how much is coming in / get financial info for the year and also send out reminders for late payments.

    To some extent its comparable to the benefits you get from using a to-do app over writing everything in a text doc.

    Sorry to jump in with the obligatory 'has anyone got a spare invite' comment but... Has anyone got a spare invite?

    Is it just me or does having alignment and colour saved as part of a text style make them kind of pointless? I wish this was at least made optional functionality as currently I end up with either loads of text styles that are simply variations on alignment and colour or text styles that are non-updatable without messing alignment and colour up throughout the project.
