All notes

Is incredible how few own their mistakes at work.

Everyone’s perfect and is everybody else’s fault. If that would be actually true, way more companies should be thriving.

I lost my wallet earlier today at a very public place. Once I realized and returned it wasn’t there. Luckily the one that found it saw my ID and contacted me on Facebook 🙌🏼 That’s a pro for social media.

Designers are some of the best and quickest people to adapt to new software.

Here’s a tip, get really good at Google slides.

You’ll be loved.

Do you have a personal website or blog? I’m curious: What tech stack/tool/service are you using? And would you pick it again today? 🤗

RT=💚 for all the people who want to get started with their own site as well!

Hugo with my custom-made Theme, GitHub, Netlify.

Couldn’t be happier with this stack.

@ramiroruiz Does paying the subscription price for 1-2 months save you more than doing it yourself? For me I usually weight that option before doing it myself 😁. Some time I still end up doing it myself thou 😜

There’s is one that looks too time consuming to do it myself, so if it gets traction is the first one I’ll pay.

The main thing is that I want a quick and cheap way to start before bring someone to do it properly. I don’t want to grow it inside of WordPress for long.

In the last few days I’ve been building a quick MVP in WordPress.

It’s been awhile since the last time I use it, most decent plugins are subscription based ☹️

Had to dust my rudimentary php knowledge.

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

By being incredibly adaptable, big change is from 1 to 2 kids. Most things were easier with 1 but they need more attention since It’s just them. A sibling helps a lot and is something else watching them play together. But it still is a lot of team work with my wife.

My GirlDad's confession:

Pregnancy: don't feel much about being a dad

Birth: oh wow this is ... cute

0-6mo: how does this work?

Now 15mo: every day I'm like "I love you I love you you cutie pie!"

I have 3. Oldest is 5 and youngest 3m.

When they were born I felt a big relief but no magical instant love. I thought I was being a bad dad, but everyone is different. The more they grow and more experiences I share with them, the more I love them.
