    Absolutely. I'm more developer than designer, so when I need to build a site quickly I love to use them. Designing slows me down, so I love just being handed something and doing what I know how to do.

  • Posted to How We Celebrated World Usability Day, Dec 26, 2018

    This was a rough experience for me.

    I really enjoyed the blog post, and I clicked around to view some other posts and they were nice. Admired the design as well.

    After a few reads I thought, "Ok, what's this place all about?" All I could find was more articles, I clicked the logo, and more articles. But the article linked above talked about improve the product? Where was the product? Finally I look at the URL in my browser, and everything is linking to /blog.

    There was no way to get back to the product page and figure out what this company was all about it. I find this to be a common issue on blogs, never linking to the root site and having to manually edit the URL to do so, which seems to be a poor usability example (in my modest experience).

    Then what I discovered is there actually is a link to the homepage, but the "Now hiring" bar was covering it.

    Frustrating when the original article was all about improving usability.

  • Posted to Share your side project that became full time job, Dec 22, 2018

    I love working in niche markets and subcultures. So I continue to focus more and more on my homeland of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. And after ten years I finally jumped into it full-time with http://upsupply.co .

    But the fun doesn't end there. It has lead to all sorts of fun side projects such as http://plaidurday.com and https://906day.com and there all the April Fool's jokes such as https://yoopersingles.com and http://visitlakewisconsin.com and http://upembassy.us

    I'm only scratching the surface and hope to find more resources, time, energy, and partners to execute more of projects.

    "...aims to capture what it’s like to work in a New York design studio".

    I feels those exclamations are fairly global and certainly not specific to New York. Not sure if the goal is to be New York centric.

  • Posted to Choosing the best code editor as a web developer in 2018 (Which one is your favorite and why?), Jul 31, 2018

    Love Atom!

    Only complaint is that it can really bog down my computer when a big project is open for a while with lots of tabs. Running a 2010 MacBook Pro.
