    Maybe I'm crazy, but I have no issues with my Magic Mouse—ergonomically or otherwise. And shoving a giant wooden ball into the underside of my hand looks really uncomfortable.

    I dig the simplicity of the site though.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Advice on transitioning design team to Sketch?, in reply to Ryan McLaughlin , Sep 13, 2015

    Maintaining the various documents that each designer creates hasn't been an issue. All our designers are fairly competent using any design program—the skills and concepts are largely the same.

    We have a pattern library that we maintain in Sketch, Photoshop and Illustrator. Its fairly easy to update the assets in all three programs, and use that library as needed. If I need to update a design that was created in one app (and I don't want to use that app) I can recreate very quickly it in another app (that I may enjoy using more) thanks to our pattern library.

    My best advice is to not dictate what tools your team uses to get their jobs done. At Automattic (WordPress.com) we let designers use which ever tools they're comfortable with—over the past year or so, most of the team has organically switched to Sketch. But we still have a handful of designers using Photoshop and Illustrator.

    All I see (on mobile, anyways) is a way to get my email address.

    Ha, I couldn't help but point that out. Also, you may want to consider reordering your sidebar and content area in your markup. This will avoid having all that "junk" in your sidebar appear above the actual content.

  • Posted to Fireworks refugees! Welcome to the open arms of Sketch 3, May 27, 2014

    I love fireworks. I still use it for quick mockups, though most days I end up going from sketching right to HTML/CSS. I tried Sketch 2 when it first came out, but find the sidebar panel too annoying. Sketch 3 looks promising, and I'll have to give it a serious try.

    One thing I didn't see mentioned is performance issues. Sketch 2 was painfully slow on a retina MacBook. Does Sketch 3 fix this?
