Minder technologie, niet meer

- Posted in Uncategorized

Ik las voor de gemeenteraaadsverkiezingen in politieke folders dat Antwerpen de “City of Things” moet worden en dat wij de eerste moeten zijn met de uitrol van een 5G netwerk. Ik heb mijn bedenkingen bij de constante adoratie van technologie. Mijn boodschap is eenvoudig: bezint eer ge begint. Gedane zaken nemen geen keer. Als iemand die […]

Since a few weeks you can batch rename layers using regular expressions in Figma. This is pretty freaking awesome.

Better

A new year, and a bit of difficulties in business led me to a lot of thinking. This post doesn’t have a lot of structure, but I hope the combined thoughts make some sense and give you something to think about as well. In my day job, I am a UI designer, and most of […]

Screen sharing pro tip

- Posted in Uncategorized

For my job, I often have to share my screen for lengthy calls. As my setup, I use an LG 27″ UD58 4K screen and a 2015 Macbook Pro. Now, this screen is not exactly ideal to show designs. The people on the receiving end might be using a 15″ laptops, so the image they […]

VRT NWS – on type

- Posted in Uncategorized

The rebranded “De Redactie” – now called VRT NWS — was launched a few days ago. What stood out to me the first time I visited the site was the choice of type. To me, it seemed the tracking was off. Things seemed to be extremely tight. Some reading on Twitter and I learned that […]

About Windows laptops

- Posted in Uncategorized

For a while I’ve been pondering to buy a Windows based laptop. Some of the user interface design work we do at Mono involves designing desktop applications on Windows. I dearly love macOS, but I also have to know “the other side” to do a good job. So the major reason is UI design, but Microsoft is actually playing […]

Looking for a very specific flowchart/diagramming app with updateable image references

I am looking for an app that allows me to annotate PNG exports from design apps in another environment i.e. draw arrows, explain things, while keeping the original design as an external file reference. I would prefer if the app has an “infinite” canvas feature, where you can resize the app to the size you […]

DHH/Basecamp

- Posted in Uncategorized

This weekend I took a walk and listened to a podcast episode of Nice To Meet You which featured DHH, the technical cofounder of Basecamp. I know a lot about Basecamp and their company values from reading their blog Signal v. Noise for over 10 years so everything David was saying was basically something I […]

Micro #2

- Posted in Uncategorized

I wonder if there’s any movement in the CSS framework space. Foundation for apps is tied to Angular which means it’s a no-go for me. Bootstrap seems to be dying under its own weight. They are unable to ship a new version because so many people collectively started depending on it. To me an ideal […]

You must know your way around the Mac and have a lot of general programming experience using several languages. The project is about publishing blog posts from the Mac. The programming […]
