  • Posted to What's your source of realistic mobile UI inspiration, not just dribbblesque rubbish?, Jun 06, 2018

    Check the app store frequently, download interesting apps, give em a spin. I find using real apps is a great way to find inspiration beyond static images.

  • Posted to What does your portfolio look like? (Personal site or PDF), May 24, 2018

    Your portfolio shouldn't be every screen you've designed, highlight the projects your most proud of and walk me through your process in a narrative like experience. I'm far more impressed by a well thought through project with mediocre UI than some UI porn that looks like it was made for dribbble

    Makes sense, organic materials are always going to have some variance. I'll send you a pic later this week.

  • Posted to Gather - new site is live!, in reply to Jeff Sheldon , May 07, 2018

    I was part of the kickstarter, just got mine in the mail last week.

    First off, it's beautiful. The base and all the modules are beautifully made, love the logo on the base too.

    Some of the modules like the phone and the sticky pad holders fit nice and snug into the tracks on the base. Some of the others do not. The large tray slides around very easily...granted it's remaining stationary so it's not an issue, but I would have liked it if all the modules were snug.

    The adhesive on the rubber feet isn't great, I've has to move them back into their little groves a couple times already.

    I do really love it though, looks great on my desk and totally helped me tidy up. Congratulations on the site launch, looks amazing.

    I'd recommend checking out something like awwwards or pages and just visit the sites yourself, play with the browser width and see what they look like.

    This is fantastic. Feels like a more natural behavior.

  • Posted to Should I learn prototyping in After Effects or apps like Flinto, Apr 24, 2018

    It's a constantly changing landscape. New tools are coming out every day. Most have free trials, give a bunch a try and see which one works best for you. If you haven't used AfterEffects before, the learning curve is quite steeper than something like flinto or even invision studio. If you're a sketch user, there is a handful of plugins that came out recently to prototype within invision.

    Interesting list – not sure if I would qualify all of those books being helpful for branding.

    Here's some that I would recommend to understanding branding.
