  • Posted to What sketchbook and pen do you use?, Nov 21, 2016

    Post-Its and Sharpies for me.

    I do have a Moleskin notebook I used to use, but I have the tendency to overthink when sketching on my notebook since it feels permanent. So I love Post-Its better where I can just throw off ones I didn't like.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Is your workflow broken by the latest Sketch symbols/styles update as well?, Apr 27, 2016

    Well tbh, the new symbol system actually improved my works by A LOT like:

    • I have full control of all my symbols since I don't have to worry messed a symbol up since it's locked in different page,
    • it can nest symbols too—I used to have to manage a lot of icons and painfully replace them one by one
    • I can just create modals/entities and then add the contents later…
    • …and then easily change states without redoing the contents
    • it's far easier to manage my assets slicing too since they're all already in a single page.

    As for copying symbols, not replacing the current one is very desirable. If it's replacing the old ones in your symbols directory, there's a good chance it accidentally ruin your current design.

    I do have a solution for your icon problem that I use. You can actually change the symbols' BG color without affecting the symbol's rendering.

    You can do it by selecting the symbol's artboard, change the BG color, and then turn off "Include in Instances". You can also turn off the "Include in Export" option to make sure you won't export the BG color when it's exported. Here's the screenshot on how to do it:

    Interesting. They should've spent some more time in trying to simulate the reflection.

  • Posted to Will Bohemian release a bug free version of Sketch before the community runs out of goodwill?, in reply to Satyajit Sahoo , Oct 31, 2015

    Well, you should consider yourself really lucky then. I used it everyday and always have to face bugs here and there.

    One of the most frustrating is that the latest update this Oct makes all my plugins not working. Worse, saved documents from the latest version is not compatible with earlier versions, so I can't just roll back to earlier version even if it's possible and my coworkers are forced to update as well.

    I'm (and my coworkers are) really looking forward for Adobe Comet now.

  • Posted to Do daily UI challenges help you become a better designer?, Oct 15, 2015

    Well, if you want to be a UI Designer, this exercise truly helps a lot. You can improve the quality of your interface design: pushing pixels, typography, focal points, etc...

    But if you want to be a UX Designer, Daily UI will not help you much—I do agree that UX covers UI as well but UX's greater chunk is on solving user's problems. Instead of doing Daily UI, I think it's best to practice by doing some Design Sprints. Talk to real users, solve real problems, then measure it. Take example this project by Francine Lee on Dropbox Photo. She didn't get paid by Dropbox, but I'm sure she learned a lot.
