Whether it's a work in progress or project you or your team finished this week, I'm excited to see!
I'm studying for my finals, but managed to design & code a (temporary) webpage for my personal site during my study breaks: http://jessedobbelae.re.
(Designed in Sketch and coded with HTML5 & Sass)
That looks nice, man! I think it would look better though if you arranged all the things at the bottom neatly, much like on http://thingsorganizedneatly.tumblr.com/
Try it :)
Same thought here! Really like the general look of the page, but the stuff at the bottom feels a bit heavy on the right. Maybe center the macbook and then place the other things around it?
Ok, I'll open Sketch and give it a try to arrange things neatly. Thanks for the feedback! :)
If its of any use, I like the disheveled look of things. Goes against the grain :)
yeah I totally agree too! its a refreshing break from the the nonstop knolling!
Tiny suggestion -- include your name in the file name for your CV. It'll help to differentiate if in a folder with a variety of others.
Ok, I changed that filename. It's a detail that I didn't think of, thanks!
my lastname is De Dobbelaere and i really like your domain name. Were did you get the ".re"
Much love from Belgium <3 Ian
I think u got some window issues. Is it normal that it looks like this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/d5qcjv92ltdwiwg/Screenshot%202014-05-30%2018.28.02.png
When I'm zooming out I can see the whole picture but at 100% just this...
Yes I noticed that today.. I wanted to have a single page without scroll bars. That's why I've set the image to a fixed position so you would't get a scrollbars to scroll to the bottom of the image. On my screen for example, most of the image is visible like I planned it. As the screen size gets narrower (mobile, tablets), the image isn't fixed anymore so you can scroll. Otherwise, on an iphone you wouldn't see the image at all.
I should fix this for screen sizes like yours. I'll try make the image not fixed (scrollable) depending on the screen size :)!
Edit: fixed this with a few media queries. The image has a fixed position (no scroll bars) when most of the macbook is visible...
That's also a pretty CV. What did you use to make that?
Microsoft Word with a few tables with invisible borders and Proxima Nova semibold, regular & light :)
Hey Jesse, nice site! I'm getting some issues with your Twitter/Github etc. links though. Seem to have weird hit areas or issues with animation.
Here's an example: http://quick.as/prD1T7Zj
That's a strange issue indeed! I've tried Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari but the icons work fine. Seems like the icons do the opposite of what they should do. They should upscale a bit when you hover on them. Can you tell me which browser you're using (+version) and maybe your OS so I can recreate the problem?
Sure thing! I'm using Firefox 31 on OS X 10.9.2.
I've noticed some differences in animation with this version but not to that extent.
I've installed Firefox 31 (Aurora) and Firefox 32 (Nightly) on OS X 10.9.3 but the animation seems fine and does not behave like yours does. Also, I just use
animation: pulse .5s linear;(with vendor prefixes of course) on hover, which starts the pulse animation from animate.css. Can't find this issue on the animate.css github either...
You'll hear about it next week ;)
I think Im already abnormally excited. This just doesn't help :)
Finished up a magazine for a brief where we had to base the outcome on two words (I got bikes and shadows). It also had to have a connection to a city (Berlin). 24 pages with red overlays screen printed on top of digital print.

I like this. Very moody. Strange though:
Haha, coincidences are to be found everywhere, that is for sure! Enjoy your stay in Berlin, it is an amazing city and also my destination for this summer vacation together with Barcelona.
Looks amazing! (Source: another graphic designer)
Thank you so much!
I made: http://bushwickweather.me
A simple little web app that tells you the weather in Bushwick (Brooklyn, NY) also tells you the status of the L train.
- The background colors change depending on the time of day.
I'm an idiot. I clicked the link and thought, "oh, nice... how do I change my location..."
Yeah it was a personal project really just for me, so it only shows the weather in Bushwick.
This website is awfully clean and pretty for Bushwick!
haha yeah this is true.
That looks great. Love to build that for my town with custom icons and colours of course.
I see it is powered by Forcast.io, does that need some programming, or is it pretty easy to do?
Worked on side project iOS designs: https://www.flinto.com/p/a6eb4020 ... feedback, go!
Nice. Very cool transitions. Is it Flinto that's not allowing me to go back to a previous screen in the app, or is it the app itself?
Most likely a combo, still doing a lot of work on it :)
I, along with a friend, made this: http://tldrte.ch/
- nice idea to sum up tech stuff
- it has a bit too much spacing imho, on my 13" rMBP I can only see 2 messages at once, thats a bit too less imho
- super awesome placeholder at the input
- please update your mailchimp signup page to match with the website
- nice url!
Daniel, great feedback! Implementing each quickly ;)
And I just came to know that I can design the mailchimp subscribe page too. It's very cool!
Awesome :) And yes, the styling is possible quite easily :)
Mine is very much a work-in-progress. I've been working on our new eCommerce site:
Password: earlyaccess (You'll see a note asking you for a password and reminding you that everything you're about to see is either half-finished or broken!)
Working on retail design for a new perfume by a famous Italian Jeweler brand. Also some infographics and 3D illustrations of submarines for Rolex :)
Free online Webservice to manage your random forum signatures :D But only (current) in germany :/
Got a quick splash page up for a side-project. Unfortunately don't know when the next time I'll get a chance to work on it will be...
"A community of soccer neckwear fans."
those prints are madness!
I made Monochrome — a browser that brings mobile web apps to your desktop. It might start a revolution.
I'm ending the week with a big release of something that hasn't be done before. I'm pretty excited about this project.
I made three examens this week. It sure wasn't my favorite week.
i made my daughter smile.. and i'm planning to try again next week.
I just did my first open source contribution! I did a design/CSS change for Github's Atom and it got approved for release.
Finished and submitted www.getbonfireapp.com to the iOS App Store! Also, finished my finals this week!
Finished designing Elevate for iOS. Released it into the App Store and got an Editor's Choice pick.
Right now it's ranked Number 2 in the USA. http://appstore.com/elevatebraintraining
Lemme know what you think!
Started designing my personal site
worked on the on-boarding process for our iOS app, and about halfway finished a test app for a CodePath bootcamp tryout
I'm working on that tip calculator app too! How's it going?
It's going good so far, but i haven't coded my design yet.
Finished the tutorial video and just finished my design last night. Now comes the hard part...
Haven't really dove all the way in yet.
I'm sure I'll hit all sorts of ugly hiccups over the weekend tho.
Getting a 403 on the viewable link :)
I structured it poorly. Thanks!
Add some left and right padding to the Current Members table. I would make it the same as the top/bottom padding, or make it half of the top/bottom padding (whichever look better).
Meant to do that! In chrome it renders fine, as I set the column width as a percentage. I agree though, it needs some padding but I'm trying to keep it fluid.
Light Freelancer - Clear, beautiful and useful project documents for freelancers: http://uxmovement.com/products/light-freelancer-every-document-for-any-project/
i keep trying to milk likes out of the hustler that is Dribbble. anywho, to your point, here's a fun little contribution I made to the dribbblesphere this week. https://dribbble.com/shots/1575301-A-Wilderness-Explorer
I've been swamped, but I managed to make this diptych:
Bi-product of sleepless wandering nights. Not my best work of course :)
I started playing with calligraphy
wireframing, wireframing, wireframing @_@
I made a charity. We're helping facilitate quality mentoring relationships in the (product and digital) design, programming and product engineering fields. If you're interested in being a mentor or finding one, let me know.
I had fun handling all the front-end and a lot of the back-end development for this. We're launching this for our client today in < 30mins.
Wish I had more time to finesse the UX but the timeline was pretty tight.
Launching on a Friday? You're a brave man.
Haha, that was their call, not mine. Once I deploy, I'll be running into a hole and hiding
I continued working on the WaPo live blog http://dvncan.com/work/2014/05/01/live-blog.html
but in my free time I made a chrome extension that returns a random stream from Twitch.tv! https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/twitch-roulette/lcieigeghecmfniojcdmfibdhoigicjo
I would love to show you, but NDA is a thing. So not today.
Helped launch a new site, and I'm designing a prototype for an app for an extremely large multinational bank, and the idea doesn't suck.
This week, aside from client work, I've taken over the development of http://onsite.io. None of the new features are live yet, but so far I have built:
An updated Favourites section - you can now see when your favourite freelancers are next available.
A hash based availability update email - 1 click update.
A new structure for the application for better sharing of jobs and profiles between freelancers and companies.
Steep learning curve (previously only ever coded front end and I'm a designer by trade) but it's incredibly satisfying to be working on it myself.
Nice dude. Sounds like a good time.
I Keynoted some magical shit this week. Unfortunately you can't see it.
Just money. :/
Hard knock life!
I'm a little down because two weeks I took a job where I'm making over 70% more per paycheck than my last job, but it's far more of a support role than where I was previously, where I was doing development every day. It's (going to be) a great paycheck, I kind of miss building software with people I enjoyed hanging out with. I'm hoping I can turn this new gig into something I can do long-term.
