Git tips

Visual libs to try out

Thoughts

  • Have a Font vizualing tool. Play around with fonts?
  • Why Dropbox and other sync software suck… Versioning is “linear” and there is no way to .ignore files inside a folder.

CSS tricks

Open design

From this video: http://opendesign.foundation/articles/designers-can-open-source-session-video/

How can designers be more open source:

  1. Share you process. (failed attempts, inspiration,…)
  2. Share your source files
  3. Use code as a design tool
  4. Collaborate
  5. Donate (donate unused work)
  6. Contribute

Make “credit” the core reward for contributing.

Roadblocks:

  • Tooling (invent the tools)
  • File formats (open file formats like svg, html/css as design tools)
