  • Posted to Do you know of any well designed CRM, Sep 26, 2018

    HubSpot. It’s not perfect, but as far as CRMs go, it’s pretty well designed. It’s also free if you don’t need advanced sales features.

  • Posted to Where to find photographers?, Aug 17, 2018

    I worked as a commercial photographer earlier in my career. A few thoughts...

    1. Don't limit yourself to local photographers if you can help it.
    2. If you want it done right, you're going to have to pay properly for the photos. Custom photography can be expensive, but well worth it if you find someone good.
    3. PPA has a great resource for finding photographers: https://www.findaphotographer.com/

    I know a lot of Chicago area photographers, but one who might be a great fit would be http://www.marcullom.com/. I've worked with him in the past and he's great at product and lifestyle work.

  • Posted to How do I invite someone to Dribbble?, in reply to Brandon Zell , Jan 04, 2018

    Drafted. I was bored enough to scroll though this thread and click on a few links. Plus you had some cool work linked from your Dribble page

  • Posted to What agency/bureau CRM tool?, Nov 29, 2017

    Hubspot's CRM is hard to beat since it's free. As you grow, there are paid additions that make it more useful for business development pros.

    I've seen a lot of great timeline work done for museum/kiosk displays. Take a look at the work by http://secondstory.com/ or http://www.terraincognita.com/.

  • Posted to Ask DN: What are the Stripe alternatives? , Apr 20, 2016

    It depends on your priorities. If you want to lower your merchant fees, then you need to move to one of the traditional players (eg. Authorize.net). Square just announced online payment support. It's the same cost as Stripe, but you can take advantage of their POS offerings.

    I have a client that asks me every few months about moving away from Stripe. It's been three years, and we haven't found a better solution yet that will give us the same value and features for the cost. Most traditional merchants make it extremely hard to save credit cards on a user's account or deal with PCI compliance. Stripe makes that possible in an easy, well-documented way.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Front End Devs, What Code Editors Do You Use?, Mar 14, 2016

    Brackets.io. I used to use Coda a lot, and while it's still useful for sites that need to be edited directly, I find it lagging behind on some of the features I need.

  • Posted to In defence of the hamburger menu, Jan 17, 2016

    It's always saddened me a little to hear so much hate for the hamburger menu icon. While it certainly isn't perfect, it was the closest we had to a standard convention. Part of the problem is that there are now several other imperfect conventions (Google's three dots, Apple's two line menu, tabs with a 'more' tab). The three line icon, especially combined with the word 'menu' is a great solution to specific real-world needs. Over time, if pushed as a standard by the design community, it could gain wide acceptance and recognition.
