  • Posted to Experiences with switching from Adobe to Affinity, Jul 18, 2018

    Still have CC suite here at work as well, but almost exclusively use Designer/Photo at the office (as its mostly for me and 1-2 office mates) and at home. As others have said, I really miss nothing except Ai vector warping tools, but I rarely use those anyway. Only times I've had to switch to Ai is for logo output or assets for motion graphics, just to achieve highest compatibility with someone outside.

  • Posted to Bandcamp vs. the Giants a.k.a Spotify, Youtube Music, Apple Music & more, Jun 05, 2018

    I play some off of Spotify, mostly for discovery, but personally refuse to pay for monthly streaming. I have a ton of personal music thrown up into the cloud on Google Music too. Both on principle and because of my personal tastes, Bandcamp is my happy place. More interesting stuff from a wider swath of genres and artists, competitive pricing options, and an owned personal collection. I'd rather support artists more directly!

    Hmm a bit too much of the negative, imho. In my experience, Sketch has largely been great and mostly stable, aside from a few shortcomings: single platform. Symbols are powerful, although investing large amounts of effort into a concrete design system can be a headache when you find that you need to make changes later, kind of fighting against the whole point. And lack of better typography tools and raster editing pushes me back to Affinity Designer. But in general lightness, focus, and plugin approach, I think Sketch is still awesome.

    Here here for Affinity Designer! If they allow for some kind of API integration with a dev spec tool eventually, Iā€™d ditch nearly everything else.

    Got mine. :) But I agree, the install request to not publicly discuss the beta process seems really weird/unusual.

  • Posted to What is the best ergonomic mouse for macOS?, Mar 22, 2018

    I use an Amazon basics wireless mouse, which isn't ideal but is words better than a Magic Mouse for me. I want to try a Microsoft Surface Precision Mouse tho. Anyone using it?
