  • Posted to Looking for designers to answer my short thesis questionnaire about your satisfaction with your storage and sharing solutions, Apr 20, 2018

    I use the same solution for storing and sharing, so had to answer all the same questions again. Also, the questions are very similar, like George I felt like you were asking the same thing only worded differently. eg. Using my storage solution is frustrating is very similar to My storage solution annoys me

  • Posted to Inspect element > export changes - workflow? , Feb 22, 2018

    I have exactly the same workflow and problem, currently in Safari Inspector you can right-click on the rule and select "Copy Rule" then I paste it into a text editor and send over the doc to the developer, but any way to automate that would save me a lot of time.

    2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

    Clockwork Orange (1971)

    The Shining (1980)

  • Posted to ASK DN: How you design a magazine cover-page layout?, Oct 16, 2017

    If you're looking at how machine learning can improve magazine cover design, would it be a good idea to go hang out near a magazine rack for an hour and make a note of which magazines were picked off the shelf and the layouts they use? You can then use that data to optimise the cover design.

    You could even take some existing covers and redesign them yourself, then print them out and put them onto the shelf and make a note of which variant is picked off the shelf, as a multivariant test. You can then use this learning to optimise your algorithm. Tim Ferriss did this for his book The 4 Hour Work Week, he printed off different covers and put them on the shelves of books shops and observed which covers were picked the most.

  • Posted to What music do you listen to focus?, Oct 16, 2017

    Currently I listen to a huge playlist of Beatles music. Since I know all of the songs so well I'm not distracted by the music but it's nice to focus on the lyrics when I need to.

  • Posted to What are the best courses/workshops on design in the UK?, Oct 12, 2017

    Experience Haus have recently started their UX courses in London, ran by Amit Patel who previously did the UX courses at General Assembly.

    I personally did the 1 week immersive course earlier this year with Amit while he was at General Assembly and can highly recommend it as an incredibly valuable starting point. It can't teach you everything but it gives you a vast overview of the whole UX process and equips you to focus on the parts that are relevant to you. I also found that meeting other designers is hugely valuable and still keep in touch with a few people who were on the course.
