    Got my hands on photoshop 7.1 demo (which didnt allow saving, so this is a screenshot of what i made) way back in 2006 ..... starting a chain reaction which has led me to become a UX Designer :)

    Still like it :)

  • Posted to Adobe XD & Sketch déjà vu, in reply to Kyle Mitchell , Nov 17, 2016

    I agree with Kyle, sketch is definitely not the first to use that pattern, the OP insinuating that AdobeXD is copying sketch is ridiculous. Sketch might be under-dog in your eyes but that doesn't mean its all saintly. It learned form Photoshops features/mistakes and now Adobe XD is doing the same with them.

    @doug Stop being a jerk and hating Adobe just because they're a big corporation. Their contribution to software industry deserves some respect.

  • Posted to How did you overcome your darkest days in your career? , Nov 14, 2016

    I was roped into leading design at a startup straight of out Graduate Design School and the pay was pretty decent so I took it. It was at their R&D office in India and I was coming out of a Design Strategy and Innovation masters plus a 6-month co-op in an innovation department at a large Italian company.

    The people at the company had no idea about what user-centered design means and would ignore all my suggestions and then when it didn't pan out with the executives in NYC would throw me under the bus. I had no way of escaping the chain of command in India nad convince people at the HQ and during the three months there I was at a very very dark place.

    I started questioning my own skills and everything design school and previous work experience had taught me. That is when I said enough and quit the job. It might have been a really juicy paycheck in India but if you don't get to the do the work that you love and became a designer for these reasons in the first place ... PLEASE LEAVE.

    No amount of money would restore your confidence if you let the incompetence of others damage it. If you're not happy, leave. Something better will always come along. Trust your guts.

  • Posted to What is the best display alternative to the discontinued apple thunderbolt display? , Nov 14, 2016

    I recently bought the ASUS BL2711U for approx $700 CAD (~500 USD) and it seems great to me ... good enough color reproduction for UI design and 4k 60fps through mini display to display port cable ( cable not included with monitor ). I think its a good budget 27" 4k monitor.
