  • Posted to Using Medium for Your Personal Brand or Portfolio, Aug 25, 2017

    I was in the same boat - I had to create my portfolio (from scratch) 3 weeks back, and needed it quickly. I was leaning towards going the Medium way.

    However, I wanted to see what the options were and landed on Jekyll + Github pages. It requires a little bit of HTML/CSS knowledge. But, setup has been smooth and boy the page loading is super fast.

    You have the option to structure the page in the way that you want it in terms of layout. I've ditched the usual 'Contact Me' page and installed Drift so that the visitors could engaged in a better manner. You cannot do this on Medium. (It is great for long-form content, I agree)

    It is great how much flexibility Jekyll+Github pages gives you in building a portfolio. Do give it a shot.

    My portfolio -- -- My portfolio site, in case you want to take a look.

  • Posted to Ask DN: How do you handle mood shifts?, Jul 13, 2017

    I'm going to give you a solution that is rooted in Yoga and is very very effective. The thing with having a peace of mind is to change how you breathe. Breath is directly correlated to your state of mind. So, just altering your breathing pattern can do wonders.

    Just follow this practice for 10mins, whenever you feel overwhelmed.

    Forget improving your mood, this could bliss you out, if you stick to it regularly.

    You can do this anywhere. Just try.

  • Posted to Marvel for Sketch - Sync designs, play prototypes and record video, Feb 08, 2017

    This is awesome.

    However, if my design is 2x, the player shows me the prototype in 2x and I cannot see the full prototype on my macbook air! :( The prototye gets cut off. The prototype player window cannot be resized as well!

    Would be great if we could specify which size to have the player show the prototype.

    GIFox is a nice tool to record the screen. Kap is a free tool which exports the recording in MP4 and GIFs.

    This is awesome!

    Wish the colors were shown in HSL format - would be super helpful to compare how the primary and secondary colors were used on a site.
