Nice, Ueno does awesome work.
Also coming soon to a city near you:
I'm pretty sure he's not getting rich off Epicurrence. I'm willing to bet you get at least $2000 worth of stuff in accommodation/activities/food/goodies alone, without even factoring in the actual event and talks.
I was going to write a snarky comment to point out how dumb that remark was, but then I remembered that I would've only wrote a text. It takes thousands of Apple employees, Internet service provider engineers, and chair makers to enable me to write a comment.
This is crazy, I can't imagine the amount of work that has gone into producing all that content. Wow.
This is great but I'm always annoyed when anything non-american is automatically described as "foreign"…
You can do the same thing with MailChimp for free, fwiw.
What's always missing for me from the conversation around design mentors is actual examples of real mentorships. I personally always try to be helpful online when I can but I would never call myself a "mentor", because to me that implies a much deeper relationship with someone.
Similarly, I would never ask someone else to become my mentor, because to me that would essentially mean asking them to spend a huge chunk of their time coaching me for free.
I would love to change my mind about this, but I always only see sites focusing on the "getting in touch" part of the mentoring relationship, and not on what happens afterwards…
I've switched to Figma as my main design app for a couple months now and it's been great. It feels a lot less buggy than Sketch, is super fast, and the built-in sharing is a killer feature.
Sure, it may lack some features compared to older design apps, but it feels like it has really strong fundamentals. Everything that Figma does, it does really well.
Be nice. Or else.
