    Hi Halli,

    Thank you for doing an AMA.

    For the past 7 years I've been trying to understand what design means. From educating myself with the knowledge of people like Donald Norman to finishing a bachelor in interaction design and working at a digital design agency just like Ueno.

    One of my conclusions is that design, for me personally, is something absolutely frustrating. When I started out in the field, I thought I knew a lot. Now that I've become more experienced, I tend to feel that I know nothing.(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning–Kruger_effect)

    The field of design is moving so fast. Perceptions on what design is change by the minute. Buzzwords devaluate interesting abstract concepts.

    Do you recognize this tendency or am I alone?

    Isn't a swastika always made by dicks?

    OP here, I just wanted to say; thank you for all the messages. I felt a bit overwhelmed when I opened designernews this afternoon. I know some people think that our community has become more passive aggressive / unpleasant over the years, but this topic has proven for me that people actually do still take time to write something useful and be supportive. Thanks,

    I will definitely remap some keyboard combinations :) Sketch has proven itself to be a monster command (+shift) c/v abuser.

    Yes, I have ignored the pain for way to long. Hopefully now I will recover soon :(

    Thanks for your message, John

    Thank you so much for sharing your experiences. I can really relate to the phone usage problem, I’m trying to use it as less as possible. Though as a native app designer, it’s proven hard!

    Take care!

    Thank you for your response. I switched to the Magic Trackpad 2 a couple of months ago, but with no success. I actually found out that the position your hand/wrist has while using the Magic Trackpad is even worst for my nerves / oxygen flow. But anyhow, if it works for you that’s awesome.

    I’m switching between Wacom and Magic Mouse now, when I work. Ill look into your considerations on amazon ASAP :) thanks!
