    "I had a sketchbook with me and took some rubbings of the letterforms and asked my friend Miles Barger, the Visual Information Specialist for Rocky, if he had the typeface. He asked the sign shop. No one has it? Turns out it isn’t a typeface at all but a system of paths, points and curves that a router follows." I love these things.

    It's clearly not Frutiger or NPS Rawlinson though.

  • Posted to SwiftUI - build user interfaces across all Apple platforms with the power of Swift, Jun 04, 2019

    I think this is one of the biggest things from this years WWDC impacting me as a designer. Can't wait to get into SwiftUI and learn first hand restrictions, possibilities and use this to inform my designs better.

    Accenture also failed to test the software, Hertz claimed, and when it did do tests "they were seriously inadequate, to the point of being misleading." It didn't do real-world testing, we're told, and it didn’t do error handling.

    Somehow coming from interface design, I have incredible respect of information and infographic design. These things need to be so complex and so well balanced. To me, it's like the master level of design.

    Abstract and Sketch updated, works like a charm. The smart guides are a blessing.

    That could definitely be streamlined, I am just not worked into the tool yet and that's why I redirect that task to not mess with the tool setup.

  • Posted to Client security issue vs design productivity, Apr 08, 2019

    I feel you. I think it's especially German middle class companies who demand this kind of security to their projects. I do think though that this is a little unnecessary and anxious. Some companies we worked with demanded it initially, we then convinced them that their existing software structure internally doesn't hold up to their security policies either

    Copywriting is done by the designers here as we are a small team. So when the designs have been shareholder green-lighted, I go ahead and create a numbers file where I put the new wordings that are being introducing with that very feature/version. This numbers file is then sent to a developer who's in charge for the localization. He migrates the new wordings into Transifex and adds the respective iOS Keys to them. And then we use Transifex to work with the translators, it's kind of like git for tables, pretty straight-forward.
