The short answer: I design things.
The long answer: I do product design, UI/UX design, front end code, and illustration. I write articles for fun - but by no means do I consider myself a writer. 😅
Print or any ‘static’ design always came easy to me, but once I was able to truly appreciate the medium of the web - I never looked back.
At home I keep things simple with my 2011 MacBook Air (still going strong) and a StandStand. Less is more, right?
It depends. I never really think about the process once I start it - I mostly just start it. Doing as much research as possible beforehand is key to most successful designs (unless you happen to get lucky), so I try to squeeze out as much as I can. After that, the best approach is to constantly view the product - whatever it may be - from the end users’ perspective. You may think something is valid because it’s pretty - but practicality should always win.
I use Sketch for roughly 90% of my design work. Photoshop and Illustrator are used for everything else.
For front end work I use Sublime Text and iTerm2. Keep it simple.
