Notes

I was so close to push the MVP of my site redesign, until I remember about dark mode styles and after that it took me to some refactors and other details I found. 🤦🏻‍♂️

I will stop after these last things, I promise.

When in doubt Left align the text.

I’ve seen so many long blocks of text centered. It makes them harder to read. It only works with few lines of text.

Having fun writing the colophon page for my upcoming site redesign.

I’m not sure if I should include a lot of details or keeping it simple. 🤔

It doesn’t matter that the design software were I spend most of my time now is Figma.

For branding or path heavy projects I still jump into Illustrator and it still feels like home.

It is tiring and it might not be very productive. But I try to always say yes when my kids ask me to play or sleep with them.

I’m scared of the day when they’ll stop asking.

It may not be the same to everyone but every time I start a design by sketching on paper I get to the desired result quicker.

Even when I sometimes trick myself by skipping that part to start directly in the computer to be “Faster” 🤦🏻‍♂️

Looking for someone to cover me with product design support at my company while I’m on parental leave.

2 candidates already mentioned that they don’t work with engineers, they are always with the “strategy” team. They just sends their mockup link. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Banks going completely digital sounded cool until you have any kind of problem and to resolve it you are welcomed by long waitings with recordings to get a 24 to 72 hrs response from an actual person.

You make all these plans and get everything ready to start, but then your kids get sick and now you barely can do anything else than caring for them for a couple of weeks 😩

I’m very happy, my wife is officially off Covid today just before Christmas and now the family is finally together.

Seeing the #BeatlesGetBack is incredible. Is always a little weird when you get to see geniuses on their day to day.

Is hard to believe that they were just regular people.The part of accepting that they were like us. That we can also do great things.

Life doesn’t send you event invitations so you can fit them in your busy calendar.

There’s no wait, you have to accept it. Unexpected things happen, there’s no way around it.

It reminds you about your real priorities.

While I’m not a fan of all algorithms, I’m very happy with my for you page on TikTok.

The parenting content is on another level🔥

If you NEVER heard him/her saying something like “I’m sorry, my fault” without a “but…”

🚩🚩🚩🚩🚩

People in their 20’s talking about their caffein pills. Same for the ones that can’t feel energized enough without their coffee / energy drink, etc.

How about sleep healthy hrs and exercise a little?

It’s been some time since I’ve seen a cartoon as good as Bluey. Highly recommended for parents of small kids.

I’ve been trying to improve my tidiness of my Figma files, is hard when I don’t like to delete variants and if I want to edit something I prefer to do it on a duplicate.

I don’t want to lose something that I may want to re-use one day 🤷🏻‍♂️

If you have the basics right you’re timeless. I recently downloaded the NES emulator in the Switch and my 5yr old really loves the classic Mario, and Donking Kong over any recent switch titles.

‘Scanability’

That should be key when designing web / landing pages. Visitors should understand what’s the value they can get in less than 7 sec.
