  • Posted to Launched my new dev/design portfolio, Aug 23, 2017

    I really like the color palette, and I think the type and layout is really clean and easy to follow. However, I think you're missing out on not using the phrase 'Howdy, I'm Ben Howdle' ;)

    I know Mackenzie Child, product designer at Coach, is pretty prolific at live streaming his design work. There's also Pablo Stanley's channel, Sketch Together.

  • Posted to How good is webflow for building websites?, Jun 27, 2017

    It's incredible, especially when it comes to building sites using Flexbox. The exported code is really clean and well-formatted, although it does come with some fluffy external files (some CSS, but their JS is pretty packed), which is something they're working on reducing.

    At the company I'm at, I use Webflow to build out individual sections of the site, and then export that in snippets that I integrate into our codebase and then adjust by hand. It's saved me many hours of devtime.

    That is so obnoxious.

    "You're looking at my site wrong!!"

    I didn't know about Hitfilm 4 Express. It's good for motion graphics?

    I always felt there was a strong resemblance between Patreon's logo and Polytron (the developers behind Fez)

    I've always liked the feel of the Gamecube controller.

  • Posted to 10 Badass UX/UX Designers and Developers You Need to Know, in reply to Dirk HCM van Boxtel , Jun 02, 2017

    I agree we shouldn't fall into the trap of hero worship, but I also think it's a good thing to be aware of key figures in the industry, especially in relation to the history of the medium. For example, I believe every graphic designer should be aware of Paul Rand. They shouldn't be obliged to like him, just be aware of the work he's done.

    It's tricky to define 'people you should know' since we have so much hindsight on Paul Rand's work since it was done so long ago, whereas every person on this list are our contemporaries.
