The absolute feature in auto-layout is so useful 👏🏼 I thought I was going to be doing the frame hack forever.

Sounds cute on paper but sharing an office with your remote working partner is not great.

Overlapping meetings schedule, the music, being bullied if you sing out loud 😢

I do like being in the same place and love our random interactions but we need our own small space to work.

Working on a “hy” logo but I can’t decide on which version.

  1. Keeping the “h” shorter and use it as a eyebrow.
  2. Use same form and act as the head frame.

Which one would you pick? https://t.co/CPpQ3Hkn9S

what's the worst thing about being a designer?

That because of the visual nature of our work is common for many to think they can do it too, possibly better, as most think to have good taste. So they see it as paying labor hrs. Seeing designers as design software operators.

I would like to see more of the progressions of various design pieces. Seeing the iterations and the reasons behind each new one.

Would that be interesting for other folks besides me?

They’re so many great Disney songs but Phil Collins work in Tarzan hits different.

@ramiroruiz Congrats on the new baby! And thanks for saying this Ramiro.

We are just being honest with ourselves - it takes time to nurture the love 😊

Now - how are you managing two toddlers and a newborn? I am scared! 😆 having one baby seems easy relatively
