    It's like the visual design of Spotify, Apple Music, and Airbnb had a baby.

    Excited to see small changes on the site. Couple tweaks and comparisons for fun/readability/scanability's sake:

  • Posted to Ask DN: Definition of “Senior Designer” in your company?, in reply to Philip Weber , Mar 16, 2015

    I would say this question is not about ranking designers.

    Because senior usually means experienced, it helps people understand what it means to be an experienced designer. What skills might come with time? What does experience mean? How do companies/individuals value different skills? What are difficult skills to learn that someone "senior" might know? etc...

    Why not?

    At the very least you're introducing someone new to the community.

  • Posted to Beware Sketch + fonts + autosave, Nov 11, 2014

    Have had this issue when both another designer on the team and I have the same file open and changes are made on one end then the original (without the changes) autosaves over the changes.

    So the changes are then lost and synced over dropbox.

    Best fix, check the "Ask to keep changes when closing documents" box in your Mac's General system preferences.

    Stop. Just stop. Women are not an outlet to blow off steam.

  • Posted to Ask DN: 13" or 15" Retina MacBook Pro?, Jul 01, 2014

    I have both the 15" (work) and 13" (personal). Definitely recommend the 15". The screen makes a big difference.

  • Posted to Your desktop: a mess or not a mess?, May 14, 2014

    I try to keep my desktop super clean. All I really ever have there are screenshots. Basically everything has a place on my harddrive/dropbox. I have an "Inbox" folder for all random things to later sort out and "Archive" folders within other folders to see only stuff actively being worked on within a project.
