Sketch vs Figma – Why I switched!

Sketch or Figma? Which should you use? In this video I’m telling you my reasons for switching!

Please remember to subscribe http://bit.ly/1aE5UOT

It feels like there are a million design tools we’re supposed to be paying attention to, but completely switching to a new tool can mean a new workflow, new things to learn, new processes… it’s a lot of effort! Recently I switched from Sketch to using Figma and I wanted to tell you why I made the switch and what I’m loving about Figma!

A weekly vlog again finally?! (Design work + a DIY haircut!)

THE VLOG IS BACK. Please remember to subscribe if you want to see more: http://bit.ly/1aE5UOT

real talk: I’ve started many vlogs over the past few months and just not finished them. With this vlog right here I feel like I found my love of vlogging again. Nothing much exciting happens. It’s me in my flat working, signing along to music, having a chat and messing around with my hair. But I love that it’s an accurate representation of my life that week!

I’m looking forward to vlogging more in future weeks and sharing more of my life with you 🙂

Hope you enjoy this video and that maybe it gives you some things to look out for when you’re next designing a website. Remember, while design patterns are rules to follow, they’re rules YOU set, so you’re allowed to decide when to break them too.

How (& WHY) to share your unfinished work for feedback!

I know, I know! It’s scary to share work that you know isn’t great yet… but here’s why you should do it, and how to get value from the process!

Please remember to subscribe http://bit.ly/1aE5UOT

Learning how to get used to sharing work that isn’t in a finished state is a vital part of becoming a designer. Getting feedback on work as you go, rather than when you’re ‘finished’ will stop you from going down the wrong path and will vastly improve your design process. In this video i share my top tips for how to have a positive experience when sharing your unfinished work. Hope you enjoy it!

Make sure to complete the mission I give at the end and report back in the comments 🙂
