Be nice. Or else.
Designer at flypay Joined about 2 years ago
When I was fully in the scrum we thought of our work in categories: 1) Pre 2) Insitu 3) post
1) Pre is any work that must be done before that job can be put into a sprint. Kickoff, Ideation, wireframes, mockups, design. This was then taken to the PM and the dev team for them to question and work their heads around. If that meeting went well the PM made tickets and the work eventually got put into a sprint. If not it looped back round till it could.
2) Insitu work is things like cutting up assets for the devs, being on call for questions etc. Basically like being an on call designer for your team. I would not have as many tickets as I would also be doing Pre and Post work at the same time.
3) Post is checking - once sprint is complete - that what was built worked (QA), user testing the live build and just making sure that what you made works and learn from if it didn't.
The only part of my job that was in a SCRUM was #2, as this is the only work that can be done in the sprint time that aligned with the team. The whole design process is not Sprintable.
I'm still using Sketch
I would love vertical text centring options.
e.g. Top, Middle, Bottom
Currently text is only set to top. So when you have a symbol that might have 1 or 2 lines the text looses it vert centre position.
Spies could use it to send secret messages that no one can read.
Oh shit, didn't realise that I have been using a beta this whole time. Shame that it is now a paid app and no benefits to the beta testers. As I already pay to use Lingo, so I guess I'm gonna have to switch over to that for all my icon needs.
You can also copy and paste what ever is in your clipboard, by simply clicking on the tiny img preview box before pasting
And to click. The touch targets should be padded better.

Should designers wear black shirts?
There is a free tier, but a subscription is needed for more mockups and updates.
