  • Posted to Design Portfolio Bingo, in reply to Joe C , Oct 26, 2018

    Imho, this is funny, a light-hearted poke at an industry that often converges on the same trends and cliches. I can't imagine people are actually being hurt/offended by any of the squares. You need a thicker skin :)

    It boils down to the fact that a portfolio should be professional, think of it - you're trying to sell yourself, are you doing it with cheap emoji? Also, nobody cares about your photography or other hobbies, they need your skills and experience, because they are serious and want to pay you money for your work. If they like you, you will have an interview where you will have a chance for a small talk..

    It is your work that should be shaping your portfolio and showing off your skillset. It should not be your portfolio shaping up thumbnails of your work.

  • Posted to Design Appreciation: Itsycal – a free menubar calendar app with VIM-like depth to it, Oct 04, 2018

    Been using Itsycal since Day-O developer rejected implementing a version for dark menu bar. VI-inspired shortcuts are nice! (reference here)

    Since 2008 (or something) you could add CTRL to the key combination and there were no redundant screenshot files on your desktop :)

  • Posted to Does anyone still use RSS readers? Looking for feedback!, Aug 02, 2018

    On the Mac I use Leaf, it does have Feedly integration but I don't remember if I have it enabled (I'm at work now on a diff machine). I am using it because it resembles the beloved Caffeinated app (now abandonware, I think still free to download but it was glitchy for me on El Cap). It's simple.

    I don't read RSS on mobile.

    Your app looks fine, I love the first comment about beautiful typography, while the typography is hardly visible ;)

    Timbuk2 Tuck Acid (acid-coloured side zipper to access laptop compartment). It's light, and fits MBP 15, and because it's a roll-top, I can fit a s#itload of stuff in it. Highly recommended :)

    yeah, Sketch tweeted about it just now - update Abstract to v.73 before upgrading Sketch.
