  • Posted to Sketch 65: Prototyping improvements and a new way to export assets directly from Cloud, Apr 29, 2020

    Improvementssss? Improvement, as a singular word, would be a better way to describe this prototyping update :P

    I desperately want to give Sketch all of the money I'm sending InVision. Timers, hover states, and fixed overlays/scroll position were the three things holding the team back. This hits one of them at least.

    Bought an iPad Pro last year and I've used it so many times. Running research from it was much much easier than a laptop (capturing video/audio, compiling notes, and then shooting those in to a Confluence or Notion was easy).

    I've also loved using Procreate to sketch out ideas. I still prefer a whiteboard, but I'm getting climatized to a virtual whiteboard, too.

    I once worked on a catalog for upscale office chairs. The book had around 170 pages printed on legal sized sheets and finished with a complex double glued binding.

    Turns out all the SKUs for custom parts (which accounted for a large majority of their revenue from high end clients) were one digit off for half the pages. Yikes.

    Luckily it was caught before the massive run had begun but a lot of the Initial print setup and test runs had to be thrown away.

    He always seems to ride the line between being humble and also cocky. Interesting mind.

    I wrote an art history essay on Tibor Kalman in college. His work was so rigid and provoking that I couldn’t get enough — and personally his writing opened up my perspective on how to think laterally. Thanks for sharing this!

    This was a very insightful read!

    Question: After removing the take home did you notice any major adjustments or challenges with new hires? I started my managing career without a take home and it wasn’t faring well!
