  • Posted to Adobe XD's New Advanced Prototyping Features - Voice Prototyping & Auto-Animate , Oct 23, 2018

    Enjoying the new features for XD, played about with the auto-animate stuff shame we can't send the preview link so clients can interact with the drag interactions.

    I've been using XD for pretty much every bit of web design and wireframe work for the past few months, I should write down the things I come across, normally dump these frustrations on Twitter.

    I'd love to see better integration with Photoshop so we can craft image areas, a place/import feature where its an externally linked item. Or the ability to use the CSS blend modes to achieve some of this within XD.

    When can we see some tweaks to the text options? For example, shift+enter takes on the after para size instead of line break?

    Excited to see whats released next month, keep up the good work team!

  • Posted to What "freelance skills" do you wish you knew when first starting out?, Mar 23, 2017

    Definitely business skills, how to negotiate, cash flow forecasting, how to cost things properly. I'm still learning today, its mainly growing and being confident in your ability.

  • Posted to Recommendation for keyboard and mouse, Jan 03, 2017

    I currently use my Macbook Pro laptop as the keyboard and a gaming mouse. I grabbed the Steelseries Kana V2 a couple of years ago and its still going strong, easily customisable and incredible precision. I'd happily recommend any gaming mouse as they're built for precision, speed and to last.

    This is exactly what worked for me, two of us able to help pull in the work and contribute to that monthly income with complimenting each others skills. Daaaamn its still tough tho!

    I'd recommend starting to freelance on the side while retaining current job or with a new job. Working at different companies helps you build your own network of people you can use for future work, coders, designers, pm's etc.

    Working while freelancing on the side gives you stability, depending on what your current situation is, if you have a lot of outgoings, i.e. house, car etc then you'll need some stability.

    These two books are pretty amazing and have helped me out so far: • Creative Truth: Start & Build a Profitable Design Business • Work for Money, Design for Love: Answers to the Most Frequently Asked Questions About Starting and Running a Successful Design Business

    Focus on what makes you unique as its a pretty competitive market, get your own site up and just see what you can win. There are plenty of jobs boards requiring freelancers but its a tough gig and often hear 0 back.

    All the best hombre!
