  • Posted to New to Sketch? I wrote a little post about getting started., in reply to Duke Cavinski , Feb 16, 2016

    Nah, I think everyone just likes sharing their experiences and being a part of a contributing and communicative design group.

  • Posted to Intence - The scrollbar era is over, Mar 27, 2015

    This seems to be solving a non-existent problem. As far as i know, no one has really complained about the current scrollbar. Not only does it give pretty much exact numbers )1/6th of the way down, 1/5th in view, etc), but it also is pretty non-intrusive. This seems to go in the complete opposite direction; not giving me a clear indication of where i am, and taking over a lot of the content.

  • Posted to Ask DN: What kind of bike do you ride?, Dec 17, 2014

    Ive got two bikes, an everyday steed and a fun-time-not-locked outside-in-Boston bike.

    Everyday bike- 2014 model Aventon Mataro - Matte black

    Special bike - 2013 Fuji Track Pro 2.0 - grey

    Living in Boston it's tough to leave a bike locked up outside (at least i feel so), so the fuji rarely sees a u-lock and rarely leaves my sight.

  • Posted to Who's on Ello?, Nov 11, 2014

    Honestly, I signed up, added a friend or two, and haven't logged back in since.

    I think they shot themselves in the foot a little by making it too exclusive. I had no reason to join, no friends on it to connect with, i didn't know why i needed it. Because of that, I completely forgot about it.

  • Posted to Photoshop and Sketch, (almost) never Illustrator, why?, Oct 21, 2014

    I've noticed a lot of my students use photoshop because it's the first thing that they are introduced to; whether that was while they were in high school or maybe a intro class freshman year of college.

    I switch between the two programs, and use them for different reasons. Anything that required me using the pen tool i do in illustrator. Use smart objects to transfer icons/assets between the two programs.

    Wire-framing and quick prototyping I do in Illustrator. I can see multiple art board at the same time, and can have multiple size art boards which is great for laying out the same web page or app in different screen sizes.

    Slicing of assets is done in Photoshop (at least when im slicing pngs - as i can incorporate Slicy into the workflow). Now that apps can accept pdf and svgs that may change, but im not quite sure yet.

    Basically photoshop has better image rendering as others have mentioned. But illustrator has better pen control and allows for quicker (in my case) mockups and prototypes.

    You also need to take your own personal preference into account though, so whatever you are more comfortable with will work fine.

  • Posted to Where are all the design "hackathons"? , Oct 10, 2014

    While regular hackathons do have a focus on the technical and programming aspect of the event, there is a need for design in them. I am a designer, but i have attended several hackathons with developer buddies, and have had a blast under the tight time constraints to produce a great looking and intuitively functioning app or program. Just because there isnt a huge focus on the design doesn't mean that there isn't one.

  • Posted to UX and UI Designers, what would be your ideal collaborative work process?, Oct 08, 2014

    Or - what would be your ideal team structure (this is more in terms of mobile or web design teams than print-based teams)

  • Posted to UX and UI designers, how do you work with each other?, Oct 07, 2014

    More specifically - when do you work directly with each other, and when are you working separately?
