A presentation at Shapes #8 in in Hamburg, Germany by Roy van Rooijen
Personal learnings on side projects, organizing events, and figuring out doing what makes sense as a digital designer. And how it all got a boost here in Hamburg.
The following resources were mentioned during the presentation or are useful additional information.
A plugin for the Sketch design tool to speed up your workflow using the keyboard.
Videos of the talks we hosted during our meetups and hackathons.
A recap of 2 days of hacking at the Wix.com spaces in Tel Aviv 🇮🇱
A recap of 2 days of hacking on Sketch Plugins at the IXDS studio in Berlin.
Art project of letting people draw bikes by memory, and then turning them into 3d renders.
A plugin that connects to the Mapbox or Google Maps API to load an image of a map as an image file of a layer in Sketch.
Design with coded components. And fluid layouts how they are supposed to be.
A great visual editor for creating websites.
A beautiful art project where 3d models are created with a printer in the desert that uses the sun, heat, and sand, to construct the output. The process is for me inspiration for interface design!
It’s actually great to get negative feedback. This could be a sign of being onto something. Take this first pitch for Dropbox as inspiration.
A great in-depth essay proposing an intermediary format between design and engineering tools to enable more efficient, capable tooling for product teams generally and designers especially.
Design teams, companies, and investors have invested huge amounts of both time and money in supporting a broken design process: the traditional image-based workflow.
