    I have many times, zero problems. The only reason I don't more often is because I usually want something that was just released.

    I always ask for better terms, but the real fix here is to charge more up front. One way is to cover your bills and overhead with the retainer and the remainder is your profit.

    Nice design. Crappy contrast.

  • Posted to Full Stack Designer, a real thing?, Apr 21, 2017

    Titles matter more to some than to others, but I have a hard time labelling myself, since I do a good amount of design work, front-end work and back-end work.

    Names are hard.

    Personally I don't mind Full Stack Designer but I think it'd be more clear to stay away from the weird titles and just explain what you do.

  • Posted to Designers Learning Javascript: Angular, React, or Vue?, Apr 13, 2017

    Good article.

    Vue is likely the best starting point, it gets you using most of the concepts and it's easier to integrate into a project bit by bit so you don't get to overwhelmed.

  • Posted to New onboarding - major improvement based on DN community feedback, Mar 17, 2017

    Visually, I really like it.

    What's the original thread that you got feedback on?

    One thing – I love that the copy & visuals change based off what I choose, but I don't like that the height of the title changes so the page jumps around when I choose.

    I agree. I mean, everything has it's place, but these are too common.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Have you ever quoted front-end dev before seeing the designs?, May 19, 2016

    It's common with agency work. I've done it a few times.

    You can take two approaches – outline exactly what you're expecting to do and the amount of fidelity you're willing to give, and a number based on that. The more specific you get, the easier it is to get more money down the road.

    The other approach is to quote higher, with a fair amount of padding in there in case things get overly complex. This is my preferred approach. Go over the project with them, talking about what kind of features they're expecting to require and talk about the challenges.
