This is a huge opportunity. Get on it if you want to create the future.…
This is an awesome opportunity if you love design and email! And the team happens to be some pretty good humans as well :)…
If you are doing anything with NFTs/Crypto then for the moment the best advice is: 1. Turn off DMs everywhere. 2. Do not screen share with anyone about anything. 3. Avoid the OpenSea Discord.

“Always go a little further into the water than you feel you’re capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth. And when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting.” —David Bowie

Started reading my timeline here and got depressed about nearly everything I saw so… If you’re reading this, did you know that smiling releases endorphins, which helps you feel happier and more positive. 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁
One of the best sites I've seen in ages… and an amazing typeface driving it all!
Hearing your 13 year old daughter blasting “Let It Be” in her room is a proud dad moment for sure :)
You are the only person living your life. You and you alone are responsible for your happiness. It takes a lot of courage to dive into the shadows and learn to love yourself—and yes, it’s worth it. May you find a bit of courage today to love the things you think are unloveable!
I am opposed to the recall of Governor Newsom here in California. I wanted to briefly walk through why this is important, and encourage CA citizens to vote in the upcoming recall election.

The one and only @mkruz was a genuinely good human being. He taught me more than he'll ever know, and I am grateful to have been his friend and colleague. Rest in peace.
I'm going to talk about the Art of Reviewing with @littlemegared this Thursday! Register for Same Page and join us for the conversation and some surprises!…
I don’t know whose manager needs to hear this but… When your direct reports look good, you look good. So give them access to opportunities and let them shine.

There is a lot of interesting things happening in the creative tools space. And then there are things like the update that Runway is about to drop... Mind. Blown. 🤯…J
@jbrewer Writing maybe the only way to explain the why. Product designers need to communicate the why as well as the what.

So designers, if you are complaining about having to write, you might want to consider a different career path. 7/7
The reality is that we still need to communicate the 10,000 micro-decisions that resulted in what stakeholders are looking at, how it solves the problem, and how it will impact the customer and the business. 6/7
Otherwise, people tend to fixate on the color of a button instead of determining if the new card layout solves the usability issue we identified (user need) and is intended to increase conversion (business need) — as an example. 5/7
Frame up the problem, the constraints, what requires feedback or approval—tell me what you want me to focus on! 4/7
Design has a context problem. It’s almost impossible to glean all the necessary context from an image or a prototype. You can get a “gut reaction” from someone, which has some value, but we need to be more specific. 3/7
If a picture is worth a thousand words and a prototype is worth a thousand meetings (love you @mikeindustries but more like 1:10 at best 😬), why are we still spending an inordinate amount of time trying to get people to understand what they are looking at? 2/7
Designers who "don't want to write" are going to have a really tough time in the future. And yes, I’ve heard this from enough design leaders that I believe this is a real problem. A short thread... 1/8
Good evening, all! If you’re interested in learning interface design or levelling up your skills, good news. I’m running Session 1 of my ‘Building Beautiful UIs’ course tomorrow afternoon, 100% free, so you’ve nothing to lose. I’ll be on Zoom at 14.00 (BST). DM me for details.

To all my engineer friends: there’s a stealth startup backed by some incredible folks building an ambitious new protocol in crypto. It’s looking for its early core engineers: full stack, protocols, cryptography, and distributed systems. 🚀 DMs open and I can put you in touch 🙌🏼

The amazing @dainal wrote about the evolution of our brand at Abstract and it’s absolutely worth a read!…
So I made a roasted dandelion root latte (tea+a bit of maple syrup+oatmilk) and I’m telling you its legit AF.
If you think that “in 2021”, “times have changed”, “awareness has changed”, and are only thinking it’s because of today, then you don’t realize the extent of the long-running issues that oppressed people live through in a world that struggles with racial and social equality.

Which companies and/or protocols have the most impressive developer ecosystem funding? This could mean total funding, developer support, community, etc.

The By Design podcast takes a look at all the different stages in the design lifecycle. For the past 8 weeks, we’ve shared conversations with @jbrewer and experts about what works and what we can improve to make better products. Here’s a quick look at the journey:

I'm so impressed with the @plasmic team. They have been kicking ass for the last year and just launched on ProductHunt today. Check it out:
And before y'all go off about whether it’s true or just propaganda, I'm just saying it’s well designed.
Kudos to the team behind this, it's really well done. Looking forward to the second volume :)
Folks on IG really liked this so I'm sharing here for all my twitter friends too — It's a full month of alternatives to the question "How are you?" Enjoy and share as much as you like 😘R

This week on By Design, I talk w/ @lil_dill about REVIEWS! There is a ton of wisdom in the stories she shares and some really practical tips for getting the most out of your team's reviews. Check it out!…
We need more of this kind of thinking AND the investment to go with it!…
Just about everyone I know (and folks I hear talking about NFTs) literally say "En Eff Tees" so here I was thinking I'm clever but no, I'm just old and late to the game. I'll be sitting over in the corner talking to myself if anyone needs me.
NFTs should be pronounced “nifties”
On Ep. 4 of By Design @davidhoang and I talk about prototyping, curiosity and constraints, and how getting real feedback from real humans as early and often as possible can help your team figure out what you will say "No" to……
I wrote about racism.… (Also: I'm publishing a personal site again. It's time.).

Delightful conversation with the one and only @hemeon about the exploration phase and how setting expectations with stakeholders and clarifying the type of feedback that’s needed can create compassion and freedom to explore.…
ICYMI, I'm hosting a new podcast called By Design! This week I talk to @askthesherwins about the product brief—how it can be used as a tool for alignment, what success looks like if you get it right, and how we can improve this stage in design lifecycle:…
There are some prolific designers out there for sure. But this “10x designer” idea is more likely someone who doesn’t have boundaries and is willing to nearly kill themselves to make their boss/client happy. Not the kind of behavior we should be hyping.
It's really happening! Our first episode is live. Check it out wherever you get your podcast goodness :)…
This. And make it a walking call—the difference is real.…
Hunger in America can be hard to recognize because the millions of people struggling with it can look like anyone. #RecognizeHunger
On Wednesday we launched a preview of a new @goabstract product into the world. Along with that, the User Education team rolled out a new help site, with fresh content and a fresh look to match our product rebrand.
