    This is great! Congrats on your journey. Great timing too, my husband is a personal trainer and is looking for a platform exactly like this. I'll share this with him and see what he thinks.

  • Posted to Question: Starting a large scale application design in Sketch. What articles, tips or videos do you have for effectively using symbols?, in reply to Jeff Szpak , Jul 12, 2017

    Love the UX power tools guys but I've ran into a bunch of problems using symbols in sketch. Unsure what I'm doing wrong in my setup.

    • When I copy a nested symbol button from one sketch file to another only about half the nested layers come with.
    • Invision's content plugin only fills into text fields, not into symbols. So I ultimately paused on using symbols for now.

    Would appreciate any advice from nested symbol wizards.

    I've been looking for a while for a good solution. Layervault was purchased by dropbox and shut down. I haven't seen the feature in Dropbox yet :/

    Previously I set up a git repo for design files and it worked great but I ran into a 2gb limit, they locked the account and I couldn't commit to it. Not sure if I should have been handling it a different way.

    Glassdoor has been incredibly helpful for me. Even just getting a vague idea of the industry. Take a look at several businesses in the area you live in.

    I did a cycle with them a year ago, received one request from a startup in town (LA) but that was it.

    Edit: OMG I love you so much. Just finished uploading both an iOS app and Android app about 25 screens each. Ahh no more redlining, thank you this just saved me a week of work.

    The only Issue I've had is with accounts. Why can only the owner push designs? What if there are multiple designers on the team?

    I've just started using it for my designs. Few crashes here and there but I'm pumped. I'm leaving on an extended vacation and I feel good about leaving the designs for the dev team to start building. But I guess we'll know better in a month or so if the reality lives up to the promise.

  • Posted to Ask DN: What design challenges have you done in an interview process?, Jul 31, 2015

    Two recent ones I did during onsite interviews with two big tech companies in the Bay area: Redesign an ATM & Design a web app to book days for a vacation. Both companies were looking for deep design thinking way beyond the UI. One of the companies we did a pair app critique with a current designer. These were part of 5 hour long interview loops and after I had done a presentation & several interviews,
