The world is changing fast. What are you doing to keep up?

What has worked for me my entire life is being adaptable.

Being adaptable means being able to shift with the inevitability of change.

💯, I always consider myself very flexible and adaptable. What I’m doing right now is keeping myself up to date (twitter/mailbrew), playing and experimenting with all these new AI tools integrating them in my ever changing workflow.

The client asked me to change the current design because it’s not ‘sexy.’

👀 Am I designing lingerie or a login page?

Just watched #MarioBrosMovie with my kids. Is amazing! A universe that brought me so much joy as a kid playing SNES now I’m seeing it in my kids. 🥹

Coolness comes from mastering a challenging skill, perform with grace and sharing it with others.

The design sprint we finished today reminded me why I love this process so much - teamwork and collaboration truly make the magic happen.

When I start my day with purpose, I set the stage for a productive day. I no longer waste time reacting to whatever happens, I shape my day and keep control over my time and energy. Family life is tough, and some days I lose track, but try to pick it up as soon as possible.

One of the best decisions early in my design career was embracing a generalist approach. By exploring various disciplines, I gained valuable insights into my passions. This allowed me to tackle diverse tasks, keeping work interesting and avoiding monotony.

Don’t wait for your designs to be perfect before sharing them. Remember, a design is never truly finished, and feedback can only help refine and improve your work.

@ramiroruiz Yo pienso todo lo contrario. Estudié arquitectura y siempre pensé que no podría diseñar mi propia casa.

Eso es un problema común con perfeccionismo y se ve tanto tmb en diseñadores cuando diseñamos para nosotros como el branding o sitio web. Somos nuestro peor crítico 😅

It’s amusing to see people argue about the “right” way to write ChatGPT prompts.

@dainal 2 young kids. Does that count? It should.

Well raising children is the most important project for parents. I have 3 young ones.

Not exactly the same as other ones as you cannot abandon them if they’re not “performing well” or sell them for profit… at least not in my country 👀

I just improved my shortcut to now not only post my tweets with the tweet link to my website, but also to Mastodon too.

This is the first test note 🤞🏼

@ramiroruiz that may not go over well if it becomes obvious and constant from your cross-posts that you’re referencing something specific to twitter on a mastodon timeline. Especially if it is a reply and lacks context.

@JustMrLarz yeah that would be bad, is not completely automatic. I have to choose what to send that step is where I add the note tags and review the translation to post to my Spanish account.

That helps me avoid confusing posts like you mention. I rarely post live event tweets to my site, and replies are only sent to my website with the original author note for context.

Data is key in design, but I also value creativity. Being stuck in a company that constantly tests every detail and doesn’t trust the designer’s choices is not for me. A company must have a distinct aesthetic style and give designers the freedom to bring their ideas to life.

Everyone should have a sketchbook, is amazing to see all kind of rough ideas you had, the good and bad. Seeing how your thoughts evolve through sketches is inspiring.

I regret not putting dates on the pages earlier.
