  • Posted to Pixelmator New icon, Oct 29, 2017

    As a user, I like Pixelmator and use it.

    As a designer, I think the overall Apple-ish look of everything is lame. Previous icon was just of-course-its-like-photos type. There's so much potential for a custom, bold style eg. Dropbox. This new icon seems like a good step.

    It’s lame.

    Look, “minimalist” works for people who don’t need to impress—their name is enough. For you, however, this is not the case. You need to explain your process, thoughts etc to impress. Also, omit emojis.

    This happens to me quite often, especially because I spent 100% time working on my startup and it's extremely mentally and physically exhausting. I work from my apartment and I have a dedicated room for my home office and I fight this using 2 hacks:

    1. I take a long shower. we have an open shower so it's big and there's a bench so I can stay there for a while) to come up with new, fresh ideas which I just dump into Memex as they come to my mind (I have iPhone in waterproof case).

    2. I take long walk. We live in the PH floor so I have direct access to the rooftop of our building (important—without taking the elevator—makes it quick) and there's a decent park where I just walk and think about ideas and when I feel I'm refreshed I can just run back to my office and get back to work.

    Both features we're crucial when we we're choosing the apt. Quite a challenge in NYC to find both :)

    P.S. Small things like changing wallpaper, buying little things like a new mousepad sometimes also help.
