I’m going to repeat content because I know some of you are skimming this and have only 20 seconds. So you’re not really reading. I said I only spent a few weeks consulting on this while another designer did all the actual hard work on this. I’ve hidden it at the bottom of my site hoping they’ll never notice that I stole it. Yeah not gonna lie, (to that person) I really hope this isn’t you reading this copy and realising how I big time ripped off your work fam, I mean “steal” but in the way Austin Kleon says it you know? Trying to work on my affirmations more this year. I Steal Like the great Artists did. I deserved that promotion. I need my job to impress people on dates. I Steal like the great Artists did. I am design.
You merely adopted the dark. I was born in it, molded by it, and STILL LIVE IN IT. Also because, if design twitter doesn’t think I’m cool, was the project really worth it? So yeah. Dark Mode. At some point along the process, someone from marketing saw Figma and realised they want to incorporate collaboration and multiplayer cursors in, even though our service offering was something you’d have to convince a single person to use!
Designing with purpose is boring I just want things to look cool and not worry about what someone else thinks it means.
I learnt not to delegate everything to the new designer because then you won’t have any answers for when people ask you questions. I also realised I have a public image problem. You would think I’m a Dribbble Designer, but I’m a Behance Appreciated Projects Designer at best!
You and I both know, this reach out form is just a formality, because if you’re anything like me... you’re gonna compare yourself to other people's portfolios, rethink all your life decisions and then sink into a depressive slump. Congratulations! You now equate your self-worth to your work 🤡
