  • Posted to Single designers in teams, how do you get design mentorship or coaching?, Mar 20, 2017

    I've always had this question - Do I work for someone who will mentor me or can I mentor myself?

    My answer has always been - the Internet is a huge platform for learning. It's basically the Lego in your hands, make whatever you want to make. The guide book (Internet) will teach you some tricks but eventually, you will have to use your creativity to build your own blocks of creativity.

    I love community-based websites as people are ALWAYS willing to answer. If you have a question - Post it on DesignerNews, StackExchange(Graphics/UI) or even Web Developer News or even Reddit. Follow HongKiat, Wired, FastCodeDesign, Medium.com; and many other websites out there.

    They are your teachers, mentors, classroom(Udemy), motivation(Gary Vee, books by Ryan Holiday, George Lois) and your life guide(Plato, Socrates).

    I was lucky to have learnt from the best seniors during my internships, university and college. But once I stepped out, I realized that I'm on my own until I find someone who wanted to guide me.

    Hope this answered your question from my perspective.

    I have very embarrassing pictures on google but hopefully my headhunters do not recognise me as I have a beard now.

    Hey Hardik, the web version is currently unavailable. We are working hard on building it right now, we'll post an update as soon as it's out. Currently we are available on Android and iOS. :)

  • Posted to Buno - A Clean, Minimal and Clutter Free Note-Taking app | Android Beta., in reply to Andy Merskin , Mar 14, 2016

    Hey Andy, We have fixed the swipe feature and it can be recognised from anywhere. It was a beta and we got tons of feedback and we have taken all that into consideration to make it more intuitive.

    Could you visit bunoapp.com again and down the fixed version? Note, the menu/bucket have been disabled (as we will be launching the full app soon)

    Let me know your views :)

    Our main aim was to target larger phone. It's much more easier to do tasks using gesture when you have are using phones more than 5.5 inches.

    Don't forget to tell you friends about this :D

    Thanks for the input Andy, we were planning on adding a call to action button to create your first note but that would mean adding a button at the home screen which deviated the purpose of buttonless interface.

    Our aim is to create something seamless and this is the stepping stone to doing that. Let me know if you have any more views. :)

    Hey Feras, Thanks for your inputs. So the whole point of the app was to remove buttons and keep it gesture based as I feel a swipe feels much more intuitive than a tap. As for the second part, the final position matching the note sequence was really tough to develop as of now so we started off with something that makes it really quick to note and save.

    We are laughing (beta) soon on iOS and Web so it can be accessible on any device.

    Have you tried creating new buckets(folders) to organise your notes? Let me know what you think of that as well.

    Cheers!
