    Hi Mikael, It's incredible to see what you were able to accomplish over the last 3 years. Side-projects have been a big thing for Crew, but with that comes the need to be able to also focus on the stuff that matters. How do you choose what to build and more importantly what not to build?

    I don't know if the world needs more "crappy Star Wars stuff", but the world certainly doesn't need more hateful comments. This is a indeed a design and tech podcast, but because we both love Star Wars (as millions of other people do) we decided to record a special episode about it. But you know what the best thing about it is? You don't have to listen to it. We'll be back to our regularly scheduled design topics on the next episode.

    I do have to wonder what your comment was supposed to make me feel. Did you intend to make us feel bad for spending a few hours recording something and daring to put it out in the world? Was that the intended outcome of your comment? I would genuinely love to understand this better.

    Thanks! I'm also trying to figure out a way to add chapter marks for Overcast. We both do a lot of web and iOS development, so I'm sure that will come up in our conversations. We have no hard and fast rules about what we talk about.

    Thanks for your honest feedback Chris. It's crazy how much recording a podcast teaches you about how you speak. English is not my first language and, unfortunately sometimes it shows. I'll pay extra attention for you next episode :)

  • Posted to Why I Use Sketch, in reply to Chris Hampshire , Apr 08, 2015

    Hey Christopher, I decided to go more high-level with this piece and explain why I use Sketch despite its flaws because most people seem to agree that Sketch’s feature set is really appealing to product designers (and has been covered by countless blog posts already), but I’ll do a quick summary for you:

    • Multiple artboards: This is a godsend. I don’t know about you, but I always make multiple iterations and having them side-by-side in the same document is really great for the way I work.
    • Exporting: You can set up your slices and export everything you need (even @2x versions) in a single click. It also handles exporting to SVG natively, which is something I do all the time.
    • The app’s UI: Although I’d love to see a dark mode, I prefer Sketch’s UI to Photoshop. It’s much more intuitive and simple to use and in line with the OS X aesthetic.
    • Smart guides: Really useful to align things easily.
    • Background blur: Super useful when I work on iOS projects.

    Hope you find this useful.

    That's an area where I think the alternatives are still a bit inferior to Photoshop. Pixelmator comes close, but I find its simplicity to be rather limiting. PS would still be the best option in my opinion. Fortunately for me I rarely need to do that.
