    A note taking app that can be as messy as your desk in several dimensions.

    For oldies, I think you have to have a special ideology or ethics that would keep you feeling paralyzed about your creation. But that could be a good thing that makes the work better; as long as you can still turn a profit by the end of it.

    Always been a fan of your work.

    I'll be the counterargument and say you don't need process. Your work says enough to get clients interested in working with you. It's interesting enough for fellow fans and designers to remember you. Fill in the details and process for when you get the phone call. Words, will just make updating the site harder.

    A lot of my favourite designers don't say a thing, and leave the work up for interpretation. Some of which are the most successful people in the industry.

    Focus on the thing you love,

  • Posted to Ask DN: How to write a case study?, Dec 29, 2016

    Hello Folake,

    I'd be right there with Nathan Gathright, but not all case studies deserve a large spotlight. For your simpler projects, define who/what the client/project is, then state your challenge and the solution to that challenge. Sometimes you can accomplish this in just two sentences, or in two paragraphs.

    Though this may not be related to your work, Wieden + Kennedy does exactly that. One of my favourite case studies is the writing they did for Ivory

    I've spoken with a few companies that would rather train green, then un-train experienced design/coding positions out of old habits. Their reason is that it's less frustrating and more cost effective of their time.

    There are companies that do not spend time training, especially when it's purely a design role, but I like to believe there are greater benefits if they did.

    I really want someone with a classy southern drawl to narrate.

    This is a lot like how when people hear themselves for the first time through a recording and say, "is that how I sound?" Yes, that's how you sound to everyone! On Beme, that's how you look! you have pimples and the lighting is bad. Welcome to how everyone sees you. People outside of your body know that, but the person making the post is always the only one who doesn't seem to get it.

    If I could describe beme, it's like being in the same room as the Bemer, where you gauge the person from a candid perspective. This is more intimate. The viewer stops doubting the authenticity, and is allowed to believe in the content. Unlike the more~ artificial POV instagram has created.
