    One small suggestion: I would put titles above your displayed work and writing so it's a little more clear and consistent since you've already placed titles for 'about me' and 'everything else'.

    Totally. Makes it look like some tomato/vegetable drink.

    I drew a skull to sate my inner child. I just wanted something that sort of looked like venom also. Unfortunately it's not very creative. The only thing I know is try to go very simple, like designing a flag.

    I've seen some very impressive/creative ideas and I'd also like to learn how people have created theirs.

  • Posted to Ask DN: How do you document your UX Process on the go?, Apr 06, 2016

    I've tried a variety of methods but for quick documentation I've found writing my notes directly in Sketch to be very useful for me.

    In the past I've tried using third party programs, but what I found most often was that I was referencing iterations or different versions of a design in my notes, and it was always a hassle trying to visualize 1 on 1 what I was talking about. I would also not maintain the notes but that's just laziness on my part.

    In Sketch I just make smaller artboards underneath the current iteration I'm working on strictly for notes. I also created a naming system for my note artboards so that I know if my note is linked to a previous design/iteration, or if the notes are brainstorming ideas.

    When I share my images/ideas I export the image and copy the note and paste it on whatever platform I'm sharing on.

    It's not perfect, but it kinda works for me!

    Thanks for this guide! I've been wanting to experiment with parallax scrolling and this will really help me get started.
