  • Posted to Ask DN: Sketch for Logo design?, Jan 03, 2016

    Nope — I just did a logo/rebranding project and had to switch to Illustrator because Sketch 1) doesn't have detailed kerning control or preview 2) doesn't do CMYK 3) doesn't integrate with LiveSurface, for branding mockups

    I was also in the beta, and Cushion was by far the most helpful data vis for my work last year. It helped me see why I was so stressed, let go of my most scattered clients to focus on the best ones, and actually make space for side projects again. Yay Jonnie!

  • Posted to "Inspiration Library", what app or service do you use ?, Jul 12, 2014

    I use Pinterest, Dropmark and now Icebergs. I use Pinterest for casual things, Dropmark for private folders, and Icebergs for things to send to clients (since it allows you to scale favorite things larger in the grid).

    Pinterest is the most useful for browsing as well as saving, and they have some new formats like maps. I like Icebergs' layout the best, but its pricing is high. All three have extensions/bookmarklets, which are useful. I'm still trying to decide whether to consolidate to one service.

    I'm trying to figure this out too. I design and develop, so it's usually Sass where I'm really making decisions, but I really want to see things in the mockups too.

    It's definitely going to have to be a close conversation w/your developers; I think the decision is affected by how/where in the CSS/Sass they're scaling the text. Are you treating your text elements as individual elements that scale, or part of containing modules that scale? I'm currently looking at Chris Coyier's responsive approach

    My last project I made an "assets" artboard including my official heading sizes and device scaling, and then a "style guide" HTML file to match. Anything that doesn't match those standards is coded as an outlier.

    But I lean on prototyping as a solution for anything. I'd love to see Sketch do mathmatical scales on different text styles, kind of like ...
