    Avocode is my go to tool. It supports PSD files and Sketch.

  • Posted to Sketch for Print Design, in reply to Danaan Clarke , Feb 24, 2015

    I use it for more complex graphic elements that have to be vector based to use in UI designs I craft in Sketch and I use it basically for all print stuff (business cards, sheets, flyers etc.). I don't do that much but sometimes it comes in handy.

    Affinity Designer replaced Illustrator in my workflow.

    You should test Affinity Designer for print stuff. I tried Sketch for print but it's kind of a workaround as Sketch was not made with printing in mind.

  • Posted to Ask DN: What's your hourly rate?, Feb 23, 2015

    I usually charge by the value of the project. A great article on this just came out at Crew. That's basically they way I handle my budgets and rates: blog.pickcrew.com/value-based-pricing

    I'd try to form a new and open curriculum for mastering all that web and mobile stuff we're doing nowadays. At least for my home country Germany, where nearly no teaching institution gets it! Getting as many designers and developers together, to whom we look up to today and who are (already teaching) leaders in the industry.

    Yes, that's what I'd do.

  • Posted to Ask DN: How do you organize your home directory?, Aug 05, 2014

    Basically I have 3 main folders, I guess those are self-explanatory:

    1. Admin
    2. Projects
    3. Docs & Resources

    The project folder again is separated in these sections:

    1. Own Projects
    2. Partnership Projects
    3. Clients
    4. Agencies & Freelancers

    Every single project folder in this structure has more or less an identical structure:

    • Admin
    • Project Infos
    • Notes & Meetings
    • Brainstorming
    • Design (if needed)
    • Code (if needed, synced with Github)
    • Consulting (if needed)
    • Contracts & Billing

    I hope this helps ;-)

  • Posted to Ask DN: Should we still include close buttons (x) in modal boxes?, Jul 16, 2014

    Even though a website should be 'clean' and maybe even 'minimal' why don't you include a close (written as a word) link or button at the bottom of the modal's content? This should be understood by any visitor of your website and even include screenreaders.
