I contributed a logo design to an open source Python library. Learn more about my experience and how you can contribute too.
I just came across a post from 2016, about why you shouldn’t design your email campaigns. This probably doesn’t apply to all situations and industries, but I know for a fact that many clients pay for lots of hours of crafting, debugging and testing custom templates that aren’t really worth the time.

Social Share This is the result: Definitely needs more love, but that was the work I could produce in the time I had. What is pictured here is a hover state on the Facebook marker. When hovered, it shows the share count. Same would happen on Twitter and Google+. Maybe later on I can dig into animating […]
Music Player Today’s design challenge is a music player. That task alone could take months of work, so I decided to do a mini-player for the desktop. It features a big album cover and some basic controls. Here’s the result:
404 page I really like jazzy 404 pages. However, I also like them to be straight to the point and very lightweight. Also, I think the “404” code adds absolutely nothing to the user, so I scratched that from the main copy. Fonts used Playfair Display for main header. Lato for copy.
Settings Today’s design challenge is about settings. I created a modal and threw in a few checkboxes. Font used: Lato.

Calculator Here’s friday’s design challenge: a calculator. I definitely wanted to polish this a bit further, but I think at this stage I’ve learned quite a bit in the process. I designed it in Sketch so I gained a bit of knowledge of the tool, also used some mockups for OS X components. I wish I had […]
Landing Page (above the fold) That was today’s hint. It proved to be more challenging than previous ones. One of the reasons is because you need to think of a whole concept in which to base your design. A landing page is something that can take hours or days to do right, and I did this in less […]
For today’s entry the task was create a Credit Card Checkout form. This is my design, inspired by creditcard.js: Any feedback is welcome.

Or “Roman Mars: Why city flags may be the worst-designed thing you’ve never noticed.” This is a great talk on (flag) design by Roman Mars, at TED.
