289: Design File Hygiene
This week, Marshall offers a few simple tips for tidying up your source files, and we answer a listener question about when to move on from a company. In News, we shout out a new resource from the maker of Laws of UX. And as always, we share a couple cool things like a browser for neoworkers and an article about the Omnibox.
- Anonymous has been at a startup for years and doesn't know where it's going. They ask, "Should I stay and fight the good fight? Or should I go to a bigger company and make more money?"
- Loss Aversion and the Sunk Cost Fallacy on Wikipedia
- Kristy Tillman is the Head of Global Experience Design at Slack
- Do you have a question you'd like to hear us answer on the show? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Rename and structure your layers as you create them
- If you find yourself duplicating an element frequently, make it a symbol
- Use "Bounds" layers to define a group's area, then snap groups together like Lego
One Cool Thing:
- Brian shared NOVA, a web browser "designed for the way we interact with the web today, made for the neoworkers" (whatever those are)
- Moom is a simple Mac utility that "makes window management as easy as clicking a mouse button"
- Nova's app icon isn't nearly as bold as its marketing page
- Marshall shared Unboxing Chrome, a Medium article by Hannah Lee about the monumental task of redesigning Chrome's Omnibox
