    Agree with everyone else, the site could use better a better explanation of the benefits...but having said that, the app itself is amazing! Conceptually, the whole "it's been X days since you've done this thing"is perfect for a procrastinator like me. I typically just cringe/ignore/postpone calendar reminders, but seeing it this way actually makes me feel guilty...and that is a major motivator for me. YMMV but I love it.

    Yes — all 3 features sound great, but #2 alone would get me to open my wallet.

    During my first two years in business, I did more things wrong than I did right. Here's what I did—and what I learned—when I started my own business.

  • Posted to Who is still designing desktop first?, Nov 29, 2016

    For me, it depends entirely on the project. B2B sites with 70-80% desktop use are definitely still designed desktop first; B2C sites are almost always mobile first. In all cases, I educate clients on the difference, review their audience, check analytics, and consider which is appropriate before recommending an approach.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Designers, how many coffees do you drink a day?, Dec 15, 2015

    I've cut way down; only drink 3 – 4 now. But I also have an energy drink, sometimes 2, in the afternoons. Still, it's better than the 20 – 30 I used to consume daily.

    If I could, I'd award you 100 points for this Lazarus Long quote.

    Simple question: What roles do the 4 people play, and how many websites are the 4 of you working on in a typical month?

    Hi Jessica (and Ramona!) I've got a couple questions:

    1 - Are there any designers or typographers you haven't met that you'd love to sit down and have lunch with?

    2 - How many hours do you work in a typical week?

    3 - How much vacation time do you try to take each year?

    4 - Your new book comes out next week (waiting on my preorder!) on a scale of 1-to-"pee-my-pants" how excited are you about it?
