Notes

How many times you’ve regret a risky decision while doing it?

And when everything goes miraculously well, you’re like… you see I said it was easy 😆

We are how we are because we can.

We behave how we do because is possible.

The moment we told ourselves a different story, like we cannot miss a workout for 2 days in a row, I cannot wake up late and miss those precious and quiet hours.

We change.

I understand don’t having to follow the standards and I encourage design experiments on personal sites.

But why messing up with the cursors on company and startups websites???

I don’t understand the trend of changing the cursors 🤌

Just got a DM asking me for a price to use an old dribbble shot I made for a song single. I told him nothing if it puts my name for credits. He prefers to pay and I’ll do some slight changes in return. Is like when you find money on an old jacket🤯

Very impressed with @Birdie_App a new Twitter client.

Digging the clean design and features like the top, new, seen tabs as well as the favorites screen. 👏🏼

Had to edit an old file and it’s being awhile since I opened sketch.

It feels so different, relearning now.

It is important that as a parent. You shouldn’t feel bad about not being productive as before.

Now you’re spending those hours on the most important project of your life. 🙂

For the ones that use a task management app. But also an agile project management one at work.

Do you just use your own for personal / side project tasks or you also duplicate the ones from work too?

How painful it is to do email signatures that don’t suck.

Personally I will go with text only but I’m not the client 🙃

I picked up again the design for my new site after working in some shortcuts for the site too.

But right away I started so see little details that I wanted to change, I know I should focus more on just do enough to ship it but as a designer. It is hard man 😩

It should be a red flag if you get very bored when you can’t use Facebook, Instagram or WhatsApp for a few hours or a day.

I can control bigger guys with years of experience in the ground. But my harder rounds are with my 1 year old when trying to change his diaper 🙆🏻‍♂️

There’s no training that will ever get you ready for that kind of battles.

People that put “Lead designer” in their signatures when they’re the only designer in the company.

If they’re so focus on labels they should use “THE designer” looks cooler and is actually true.

Is awesome when your work is recognized. It should happen in most if not all companies, but it isn’t. I’m so grateful that I am in one that they do, and very often. 🥰

Seen the design engineer role being used recently. It’s what I’ve been doing for years now. I don’t sit at the middle but make it part of the design process. Maybe is hard to do that in big companies. I guess my fav position is designer in a startup 🤷🏻‍♂️

Doesn’t matter how long I’ve been doing it. I still sometimes get so excited about a specific design idea that I want to jump on the details. But then I get crushed when I remember about other device sizes. 😭

Looks like I’m going to wait till iPhone 14. My 11 pro still works great, not really impressed with these new updates. #AppleEvent

Pleasantly surprised of the changes and updates of @frctl it’s been awhile since I used.

Super useful and easy to use.
