  • Posted to Thanks for reading my mind, Figma (separate round corners feature), Oct 13, 2017

    It took me almost a full year of back and forth to convert from Photoshop to Sketch and it took me a single day to try out Figma and not want to go back.

    All the usual design tools are exactly as nice as in Sketch but a lot of nice details added. (Resize image and it automatically crops image instead of distorting it).

    Loved that it allowed for me to ditch InVision and have all the prototypes automatically update without having to go through each view and export them.

    Now with the concepts of embedded live designs we’re seriously looking into having an automated internal design guide hosted on a separate domain.

    I’m a fan.

    You can actually download their Mac app, design offline and export the file to .fig as far as I know.

  • Posted to ARKit Dev – Your freshest ARKit development resources , Oct 02, 2017

    Hey guys, I made a site to collect all the tutorials, articles and code repos about ARKit, since I know many of us are super excited about playing with this new tech and seeing what we can come up with. Nothing special, and I know – looks a lot like IndieHackers :D but I wanted to launch this thing and have it be put to use, instead of having it die in the drawers like a lot of sideprojects tend to do.

  • Posted to AMA: Figma's New Pricing Model, in reply to Roman Pohorecki , Apr 07, 2017

    All points, except not owning your files, are pretty nonsense. I get that everybody likes to pay as little as possible, but building a high qualty software takes a ridiculous amount of effort and money.

    I would rather know that the product I use stands on a strong ground, rather than saving few hunderd bucks and have the company go out of business because of an unsustainable business model.

  • Posted to Why I HATE your FAKE redesign!, in reply to Gamby Lamb , Apr 04, 2017

    I've often benefited from getting inspired by various unsolicited redesigns. I see them as stylistic exercises, not real UX designs. Why get so worked up over it?

    Is there any reason this theme couldn't have been just a single html file?

    It doesn't seem like the theme utilizes any of Craft's features. Why even bother building it on Craft CMS?

    I love Kirby and the theme looks great, but hiding a two link navigation behind a hamburger seems like a bad UI decision.

    Congrats on the launch! As I mentioned to Bjoern - loving the attention to small details like custom generated OG images. Looking forward to what evolves from this.
