    I’m designing the Mac version of Context, a text based task manager for teams.

    The iPhone version went into public beta a couple weeks ago if you’d like to test it out :)

  • Posted to Ask DN: Feedback loop between designer and developer, Aug 20, 2016

    Hey Michael,

    In Sketch I make sure I have artboards showing the flow and particular scenarios of the given feature. I then chat/walkthrough the design with the developer – either in person or over a call & screen share.

    If something isn't clear I explain and if they feel something isn't right I'll fix quickly during the chat (when possible) or come back with a new solution.

    Once they have a build ready I'll go through it and give my feedback, either IRL, IM or another call.

    Works well for me and my team

  • Posted to Ask DN: How you people design on laptops?, Dec 10, 2015

    I've worked on a 27" iMac for years but this year pushed myself to design on my Macbook. It's a 12" screen! It help it's retina and if you scale the resolution for more space it's nice.

    Took a while to get used to and still like to jump back on the iMac here and there. I wanted to be able to design on my laptop so that I wasn't confined to the desk but could work from coffee shops, travelling, sofa etc.

    Take the leap, I too thought I'd never be able to do it. But force yourself for a few weeks :)

    Looks awesome Ian, I really like the font choice actually. There isn't all that much to read and is a lot more interesting.

    Basecamp all the way! It's really popular so chances are your team/clients have already used it before and they'll be quicker adoption.
