    Hahaha, they would get bonus points if the page source code itself was set in 90s-like syntax style

  • Posted to What is the correct approach for gathering feedback from different departments at the same time?, in reply to David Melendez , Feb 08, 2019

    Is there a reason why they avoid it? In my experience (I use Marvel but it's similar to InVision and Zeplin) I send every stakeholder a shared link to designs, then they can easily access via their browser and then comment on it.

    However, there were a few instances where feedback on spreadsheets were warranted because I need to extract data programmatically using Python or something related so I usually use Google Spreadsheets for that since they have an API for it.

    Maybe this isn't exactly what you're looking for, but MIT Press has a curated list of books on Design Thinking (https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/series/design-thinking-design-theory)

    One of the books (Frame Innovation) is authored by one of my former professors, Kees Dorst, on how to approach solving complex and highly networked problems; I highly recommend it :)

  • Posted to What is your favorite prototyping tool?, in reply to brian sheridan , Nov 02, 2018

    Yep! Illustrator is much better at vector manipulation than Sketch in my opinion, so I tend to do most icon and illustrations on there, and then export to Sketch afterwards to put into my design library where I can apply overrides and stuff to it.

    My workflow mainly consists of Sketch/Marvel/Principle for digital, and Illustrator/InDesign/Photoshop for print. Additionally, I also use a projector to visualize what large prints would look like (like booths or large billboards), to overcome size limitations of monitors.

    But my favourite app to use is Cinema4D and other 3D apps whenever clients or work warrants a need for it, or if I'm doing physical product prototyping.

  • Posted to What rucksack / bag do you use?, in reply to Bryan Maniotakis , Oct 18, 2018

    Agreed. I got the MemoryTech Nile Rucksack, and the bag is like a black hole; it has so much room and just wraps around everything I throw in it due to its design and material. I took it with me to climb Mount Fuji last August, and I was able to clip my flashlights on the shoulder straps (sort of like Iron Man haha), a 3L water pouch, all my clothes, and snacks :)

    Comic Sans seems to have a similar effect for me :)
