I've been bouldering at the gym for a little over a year now. Also been top roping for the last 6 months. Once in a while, I'll boulder outdoors.
I'm looking for the ability to handle 1000s of fonts well! Any recs?
Bummer. Please do!
Heya! Thanks for doing this.
Loved Episode 4, where you guys covered starting side-projects. As a follow-up, I'd like to hear your thoughts on the slow grind of maintaining and growing them.
I have a tendency to make things for the pleasure of making them, and would love for them to turn into real useful products for a lot of people. But as someone who grew up in a culture where talking about yourself is frowned upon, I find it very offputting to self-promote. How do you deal with that?
Edit: I guess I should start with shameless plug for my current project: http://www.goodweb.design/
Anybody know who did the website work? Was it made in house? Because product-aside, this is a really solid marketing page.
A few of my coworkers worked at Apple. Here are a few anecdotal takeaways I've gathered:
Strong root in graphic and industrial design: The crits are pretty rigorous. Apparently people hold back less than is usual in the Bay area.
Fairly secretive/competitive culture: My colleagues didn't know what other designers were working on. They also still can't talk about the work they did there.
Focus on doing the best work: There are very few perks for a SV company. People stay late a lot.
Of course, this is all second hand info that should be taken with a grain of salt, but I figured it's probably a bit more helpful than the snarky gifs ;)
You should also look this up on Quora. I'm sure there are plenty of first hand accounts there.
Hey Moe, thanks! I didn't know Sketchup could do that. Neat! I think I'll just stick with sketchup then.
Make2d sounds cool, but I don't think I'll be doing enough 3D to warrant spending money :P
I was hoping flattened vector, but I guess I'd be ok with a png too. Gonna look into Cheetah 3D. Thanks!
Woah that is really cool. Cinema 4D is dope, but looks like a bit much for me right now. I'll give blender a shot. Thanks! How do you think it compares to sketchup?
Hey Bruno, yes I was hoping for something small. Any recommendations?
