By the time I am writing this, Analog has crushed its goal already on Kickstarter. This proves that well-thought out design can be feasible, it all depends on the conceptual idea and its execution. Our good pal over Ugmonk has an incredible history of designing and making useful items that truly enhance our lives whatever that is on the lifestyle and now on our productivity level.
For more than a decade, I have tried LOTS of productivity tools that would somehow satisfy my demands in terms of my daily workflow whatever it was on the profession and on a personal level. But with time, I would always find little imperfections within the product, you know us being a designer. You always questioned your little routine 'picky-ness', to make sure you always bring the best of your skills alongside with the right tools. For the past 6 months, I have been using Notion.
Following up my article on Notion, the next-level productivity tool that literally changed my life, if you were looking to get started with Notion, I thought it would be great to share with you a list of templates that were built by Notion and its supporting community. It's a wide range of templates that would go from meeting notes, budget, reading list and etc.
With the new year comes time for a new start, fresh beginnings and a chance to re-evaluate and shake up our routine. I’ve used the holiday season to spend time with family and friends but also gain some wisdom in areas I feel need some attention personally. In an effort to hit the ground running in 2018 and set some realistic new year’s resolutions I’m keeping it simple and putting my focus on improving my level of productivity.
We would like to share the another announcement from the great folks over Invision and this time is about their latest feature on Craft.
It’s been a little while since we last featured a podcast series on Abduzeedo. We often do forget how great they are and being very informative in many cases. Whatever is the format, there is always something for everyone to either get us through the day or basically hearing different stories about different people on a variety of backgrounds.
As of late we’ve been witnessing a lot of really cool and interesting upgrades from our friends from Invision. They never ceased to come up with new tools and upgrades to facilitate our workflow for the greater good and also work with existing platforms to bring their products around our work environment so we can have to the right tools to create the right user experience.
We would like to share the announcement of Invision partnering with UserTesting to bring the another level at prototyping with actual user reactions for your app, website or prototype. It’s something that I have always wanted to bring to my process, it’s super crucial to know how your users engage with your products. Especially when you are in product design and you are working in design sprints and figure out goals to bring the best for your user experience every single update.
As we all witnessing the end of Summer (Northern Hemisphere), didn’t anybody felt like it was the quickest summer? We hope that you guys had some time to rest and chasing some light before fall will slowly manifest itself. Through the BBQs, camping trips, road trips; some of us didn’t have that chance and worked hard at making and launching their products to the consumer group.
Productivity is everything. That one thing that will get through the day without having to finish your work late OR for tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. Related to that, we have also have emails. Have you ever been in the situation where you sent an email to your client, potential client or even somebody important and you are eagerly waiting for an answer back from them? We are showcasing the UI work from Zhenya Rynzhuk and Artem Golubtsov about the RIGHTIME app.
One of the most important things during the design process is feedback. Collaborating with your team, designers, product managers and engineers is vital for a great execution. The process is certainly much easier said than done however.
