  • Posted to Is a MacBook Air i5 8GB enough for Sketch/Figma?, Nov 20, 2017

    I bought a 13" MacBook Pro (the $1299 version) and I sometimes experience sluggishness using Sketch, but not very often.

    Perhaps I'm a minority, but I quite like this.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Artboards Naming Conventions, Nov 06, 2017

    As Hugo said, it really depends on the project. If I only have a few screens that won't be used in a prototype, I might name them like this:

    desktop / dashboard mobile / dashboard

    If I'm going to prototype them, which requires more screens, I tend to name them like this:

    desktop / dashboard 1.0 desktop / dashboard 1.1

    Though it's a pain in the ass when you need to add an additional art board in the middle of a flow.

    No, I know what you were referring to in the article. I wasn't saying that it's a bad article (because it's a funny article) or that you shouldn't link to your Dribbble within it. I was simply making a funny observation. :)

    How to become popular on Dribbble:

    1) Write a funny article that makes fun of Dribbblers

    2) Link your Dribbble at the bottom of the article

    I've used and.co for a couple of projects and I really like it so far.

    You are given a 2-week free trial. Do you not consider that enough time to try a tool?

  • Posted to Why would you want to work remote as a designer?, Jun 08, 2017

    I've worked remotely and I've worked in an office setting. I very much prefer a face-to-face setting. It just makes communication and collaboration easier. If I want to whiteboard with someone, I can grab a room with them; if I want to talk through something, I can grab a room.

    Some people work great remotely--don't get me wrong. It's just not for me.

    Looks expensive. Have they announced a price range for this?
