  • Posted to If your portfolio/resume is a PDF should there be a maximum file size?, Mar 15, 2018

    As a PDF that's going to be sent by email or uploaded/downloaded, the rule is probably quite simple. The bigger it is the more likely something will go wrong. :)

  • Posted to Sketch Plugin Idea, Looking For Feedback, Mar 15, 2018

    Sounds a very good idea. Anything that would make Sketch, XD, Figma etc behave more like an application written in code I'm sure would be welcomed. :)

    Adobe really seem to be getting their act together with XD, and implementing much sought after features very quickly. There's a list of feature requests and what's in development here;

  • Posted to Sketch 4.0 Feature Wish List, May 16, 2015

    I love Sketch. It's the go to tool for my web projects. But there are still a few glaringly obvious issues that need sorting out.

    For me these are ;

    The memory usage. Using Sketch really takes a large chunk of memory, especially when using large images.

    The line-height issue. This has affected me on several occasions. It can be almost impossible to use a baseline grid.

    File sizes. I may have missed something here but exported file sizes seem to be huge compared to exporting in Photoshop.

  • Posted to A few tricks to get a stubborn client to like your design, Oct 05, 2014

    It's always a good idea to do three times as much work as you should be doing.

    I see the main advantage of the mark is that it's ambiguity does make you wonder what the story behind it is. It's not often that you can get away with a logo with multiple possible interpretations but maybe in this case it works.

  • Posted to Fiverr's message that even $100 is too much for custom logo work, Aug 05, 2014

    The fact to take from all of this is that there will ALWAYS be a market for cheap/generic design work. There are clients out there who won't ever allocate the budget to hire a designer to create a complete and bespoke (and decent) brand.

    Clients sometimes have a strange view that because they know how to use Wordart or Clipart in a Word document, it is assumed that they themselves could in theory design a logo. They might only see the prohibitor as time, which then devalues the service.
