    Tim, great work! I believe whole site is custom coded?

    I just have an annoying designer comment though.

    On the last project's gif I noticed some illustrations are viewed low res.

    just a question though, what do you think wrong with your workflow?

    so far what I read was okay. I mean tools are just tools. they're not going to offer design solutions or ideas. Don't get hooked up some newly funded startupy tool's fancy articles filled with buzzwords (and emoji's) and marketing pumped animated websites. Design tool's scene gone worse thanks to sketch recently. So stick with the tools which make you think less about which tool you need to use. Tools are just trends. Even on fireworks you still can create amazing design solutions in this day. Just focus on the task, not the shiny packaging papers.

    I'm using a small and cute tool called pixave for image collection. It's an offline tool though. So your files are not shared between computers and doesn't have a flashy UI. I like how it's focused on organization and stability. http://www.littlehj.com/mac/

    They have an ipad app too but idk if it's any good.

    I don't like design 'solutions' which kills human to human interactions.

    It's not that hard to ask the waiter 'may I have a refill please'. Unless you're so vile while you're eating can't comprehend your surroundings AND don't want to be disturbed while eating -like a dog.

    Sorry to break your enthusiasm and fancy bs buzzwords but this not a 'clever' design. What I feel about this thing that supports modern slavery where waiters are positioned as a refill machine and have to memorize which table needs to refill glasses. Waiters tend to remember tables by the faces of the customers. And this solution eliminated face to face dialogue with both ends.

    Waiters, workers, and everyone else are human too. and this solution is insulting to the waiters who work their ass off for people overpaying their burgers.

    eh what ever. it's just another seo booster article anyway.

    if you already set the branding and colours etc, turn on the night shift. It really helps.

    I personally prefer normal threads like this on DN rather than 'top 10 design leadership tips to impress your boss' or 'x is dead' articles.
