  • Posted to ASK DN: Where do you find high quality pictures for your designs?, Oct 28, 2015

    I normally go to All Free Stock first.

    They've gathered a lot of free image sites (as well as video, music, etc.) all in one location, pretty convenient, you should def check it out :)

  • Posted to Offline Mode: Should we disable or hide inaccessible UI?, Oct 16, 2015

    I'll go with the idea of disabling them. But just make sure you add an obvious notification/ icon/ message on top (or somewhere reasonable), to inform the user :)

  • Posted to Ask DN: Most Well Designed iOS Apps?, Aug 24, 2015

    What kind of project is it? Because different categories will have slightly different design focus (aesthetic, functionality, ux...etc) :)

    I think Airbnb did quite well with its UX:

    • Clean design, love the color palette
    • Easy-to-use
    • Esp. love the filter, great UI/UX

    Any.do Cal has really nice UI:

    • Love the idea of photo background theme. ("photo background" is something that I don't normally like, I often find them annoying. But Cal somehow handles it quite well. User are able to pick different photo categories as well)
    • Detail animation ( I love apps that put effort into small animation. Sometimes it just comedown to the details that makes the app standout from others)

    Beatwave is something fun to play around with. I didn't really have much study into this app to be honest, but it's an app that I still keep it in my phone just because it looks pretty and cool.

  • Posted to Ask DN: How do you choose colour paletes?, Jul 16, 2015

    One of my favourite ways of choosing colour palette is to make a mood board for your project. (there's a lot of great sources out there to build your mood board, Pinterest, Niice, etc.)

    Along the way of building it up, you'll find yourself having these images that represent your project the best, or at least what you hope your project could be. From those images you'll notice that they probably shared a range of similar colour scheme, congrats, you just found your primary palette : )

    That's how I define my colour palette most of the time : ) Hope it helps you.

  • Posted to InVision now with overlays (even on desktop!), Jul 16, 2015

    Awesome!! I'm so excited that they finally came out this feature. Just tried it this morning, love it! just enough for me : ) Now I don't need to create another full image file just to add an extra (small, but important) element!

  • Posted to Ask DN: Any recommended tools for making simple gif mockups?, in reply to Louis-André Labadie , Jul 09, 2015

    Thanks for all the info Louis-André!! It's more then enough that I needed, thanks you so much!

    I'm currently doing more of the interactive prototypes, using Invision, thought it's good enough for me, but I'll def try the others out as you suggested.

    I was looking for tools that can animate and export to gif :) so thanks for all the list! I'll probably try out Photoshop first as many of you suggested.
