  • Posted to Opera is Reborn, May 11, 2017

    Just downloaded and have been using this all today. Really liking it, the UI is very simple and clean. I also really like the integrated social messaging, I use facebook messenger throughout the day and it's convenient to not have to open a new page or app to reply quickly. The speed dial was always a feature I liked in Opera so glad it's still around. I was nervous about all the awesome chrome extensions I use, but found an extension for Opera that let's you use chrome extensions so problem solved.

  • Posted to What kind of app for organising images, screenshots, bookmarks do you use?, in reply to Johannes Lamers , Apr 19, 2017

    True but it does have a basic one. If you add a link, and right click there's an option to "Create Page Screenshot". If I want a full page screenshot I just use paparazzi or awesome screenshot in browser and drop the image into raindrop.

    I used Ember, but having everything in an app that wasn't supported anymore worried me, didn't want to upgrade my OS and ember stops working! I tried many things, but settled on Raindrop. Very similar to Ember and the pricing is really fair. My Raindrop

  • Posted to What attracts developers or UX designers to non-IT firms? What benefits are they looking for?, Feb 16, 2017
    • At least some interest in the field/company's purpose. Even if the field isn't glamorous, a passionate CEO who is excited about their product can get you hyped to join the team. Let interviewees meet with people on your team who love their job and it will be infectious.
    • Your managers will make or break your employees. They should promote growth and help make our jobs easier instead of harder. Don't just give management out to people who have been at the company a long time, give management roles to people who can lead. Interviewees should meet their potential manager!
    • Value an employee's work ethic vs their clocked hours. If they can go home early on Fridays, whenever you need someone to stay late and push out a last minute project, they will have your back.
    • Competitive pay and don't be stingy with vacation! Be upfront during the interview process, companies who won't give numbers or make me have to work to see their benefits leave a bad first impression.

  • Posted to Dribbble is adding response rate for your availability, Dec 08, 2016

    Yeah this seems aggressive towards designers, who are the ones that make up dribbble. Especially if it's opened up for others to view. 90% of the messages I receive on dribbble are poor requests, for unrelated projects to my skills or job openings in places miles away from my current location. Forcing us to reply 'not interested' to keep a response rate up is a waste of our time.

  • Posted to Big Update! RightFont: Beautiful Font Manager for Everyone, Jul 14, 2015

    Ooh I was looking forward to when lists were going to be added! It grouped all of my typekit and google fonts automatically too!

    Grouping font families would be nice to reduce how long the all fonts list gets. Also being able to add custom filters, there's no monospace or handwriting filter for example right now.

    Are you guys planning on adding activation/deactivation or is that something you guys aren't focusing on?

  • Posted to ASK DN: Minimalist CSS Gallery I've been building since 2009. Is it useful?, Jun 08, 2015

    I have a folder of sites like these that I've bookmarked. I find them really useful and visit each one a couple times a month. I think yours stands out since the sites on there are different from the rest. Most of the sites I frequent tend to have the same designs in their feeds.

    I've never heard of your site though... I specifically search for these kinds of sites and have never stumbled on yours before, maybe you need some better seo? I would usually search for "minimal web design inspiration" not "minimalist css gallery".

    I really like the way that http://www.siteinspire.com/websites has their ads btw. Integrates right into the feed, but is still well designed and obvious.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Does anyone use Ember's "subscriptions" feature?, Jan 29, 2015

    Yep I really like this feature! I mostly use Ember for work so I focus the feeds on topics that relate to my job (ecommerce, web design). One page love, bestwebgallery.com, and webdesign-inspiration.com are some of my main feeds.

    It seems to be a little picky about the feeds though... some that work in my feedly don't work well in Ember.
