All notes

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.

Besides time, investing in your health and fitness is one of the best gifts you can give to your kids.

I don’t think I would ever move from IC world while working for companies.

I have many reasons but seeing the number of meetings my wife has everyday as a project manager is definitely scary. I know there’s people that get energy from that but not me 😰

Friends that you haven’t seen in many years that when you do it feels like time hasn’t passed at all.

Working on another shortcut to upload posts with images to my site from Bear. 🙃

I want to remove all frictions to quickly share either from my iPad, phone or computer.

I wanted to finish a presentation for a progress call I had today.

But the baby had other plans. Instead, I showed my canvas and talked about the reasons behind the versions. They were very interested. We end up using parts of an old version in the new one. 🙌

People that can’t take or make jokes on themselves live a pretty sad life.

Many say that they don’t like meetings but they keep scheduling them. They think is a way to “work” but most of the time is the opposite.

Some get ideas while talking but is not an excuse to not do your job. Either learn to write well or show up prepared to have a short call.

If English is not your first launguage — have you ever considered using it on Twitter?

Why you are not using it yet?

I struggle with this for some time. Mixing isn’t good for readers.

I wish Twitter had an option like Facebook pages, adding the other language version of the tweet.

I end up creating another account @ramiroruiz_ES and I use a shortcut to speed things up and tweet in both.
