When Spotify delivers more frustration than music

I’m a long time music lover and listening to it is a big part of my daily routine. Whether it’s a blues tune on a cold rainy evening, some fast paced beats when cycling down a mountain or a post-rock instrumental rhythm for those times when I just need to gather my thoughts. I like discovering new music and I […]

Tools of the trade: Sketching the web

As a user interface designer at TrustYou one of the biggest challenges I have is coming up with simple interfaces to help our users get not-so-simple things done. That’s all there is to it and it’s by no means an easy job. Now I’m not going to ramble on about our entire process behind buildind these interfaces because chances are that you already have […]

Brackets vs. Sublime Text: A designer’s text editor

As most developers will know, finding that perfect combination of tools to help you get your job done fast and clean is pretty damn important but also pretty tricky. For example I myself have been through quite a lot IDEs, from [Macromedia] Dreamweaver to Eclipse and from JetBrains WebStorm to Aptana Studio before finally settling down with Sublime Text […]

Creating triangles with pure CSS

As I’m sure most designers who also like to code already have the hang of this, I still want to put it down in writing for those of you who still aren’t familiar with what tricks you can use in CSS to get your way around. I’ve often found myself needing to insert different triangle/arrow […]

Custom made dot-grid book

As most designers, I started drawing stuff on all sorts of paper: squared, lined, blank… basically anything I could get my hands on. Over time however, my experience grew and I started to see the different needs I had in terms of support material depending on what type of project I was working on. For […]

A weird surprise in Barcelona

During our honeymoon in Barcelona, while coming back from the beach, me and Adriana mingled a little on the small alleys adjacent to La Rambla. It was to my surprise that I found one of my designs – Coming back to life – printed on a phone case that was up for sale. I didn’t consider checking […]

Which designs would you wear?

So it seems that my T-shirt designs are selling pretty good and some of them now have the chance to be printed in higher quality and in greater numbers. What does this mean for you? This means higher resolutions and more durable prints for the designs that will make it “to the top”. What I need […]

You cand download the file here in a *.3ds format (for 3D Studio Max) and do whatever […]

The thing I’m talking about goes by the name of The Noun Project and is a really awesome database of free and downloadable symbols for designers and artists to use in their creations. The article […]
