    It's a tad pricey, but it is worth the amount time you saved in designing a responsive site. I use it to create interactive prototypes for both government and commercial clients. When you work in larger projects the smaller changes will bog you down.

    My devs use it like an interactive zeplin. I am able to showcase my hover effects as well as animations. The "Collections" are really nice to showcase the same template with different information.

    My only con with you have to be careful with your CSS naming cause its really easy to create 92304230942 classes.

    I enjoy Alexandria Cortez entire campaign. I never understand with the millions of dollars spend in elections, none ever look modern or edgy.

    Now, did you actually photo copied the images to start the effects or all straight photoshop?

    I don't think I ever saw a custom cursor.... at least not since 2006-7.

    I'm surprised there isn't one saying... "I'm still working on it".. cause that would be me for the past 3 years.

    I oddly feel the same way towards using the UX title

    I have used the UX title for over 5 years. I never went to school for HCI, but I continually read books about the topic. It wasn't until 2 years ago I started to actually do anything UX related in my projects. I felt like a fraud because I don't think I deserved to use that title. It always left a sour taste in my mouth, but I knew I had to use it for my past company.

    Even today I still get squirmiest despite all the research, interviews, and usability tests I've done.

    I prefer the couple sort paragraphs each section. I think people skim more often. The

    1. Witty Open Liner that summarized the project.
    2. What this company and problem statement
    3. Feature 1 how we to solve it
    4. Feature 2 how we solve it,
    5. More pics of the app
    6. Result Summary and data stats

    I would add any common questions you receive. If you always get asked about your tech stack, are you 508, what systems have you integrated with. I would add that in , but in brief. You can always link to other pages about your companies abilities.

    I have a serious question for iPhone users... How often do you use Siri?

    I personally hate it and try to disable it on my phone. Every year I try it and never works. Especially find it frustrating when it kicks on when I don't want it. I asked my colleagues as well and they said no. Which lets me wonder who uses it?

  • Posted to I'm passionate about UI & UX where do I start?, Sep 10, 2018

    The goal is to find what you like and what drives you. There are many different elements and positions in both fields.

    For Design

    Practice. Practice. Practice.

    • Start recreating designs right off of dribbble. This will help you learn modern design techniques and styles as well as your design software.
    • Play around in recreating your favorite websites. This will help you explode more creativity. I did a lot of spec work for my one job in the past. Annoying, but help me explore new ideas.
    • Start picking up freelance jobs and flip projects quickly. This will help your skills working with people and around parameters. You will get abused and leave you crying in the corner. Lots of life sessions with this one, but joyful as well.

    For UX

    Learn, Apply, Fail, and repeat

    • Read blog articles, books, (lean ux, ux research, just enough research, User story mapping, sprints)
    • Apply what you learned in one of your freelance jobs. Fail and adapt to why it didn't work as well for the next time you do it.
