Adobe released an update to their main software suite two weeks ago. We’ve been using Photoshop extensively and like to share why it’s a nice update for (UI) designers.
In the following two blog posts, we’d like to share our method of creating cast shadows in Photoshop. In this first post we’ll let you in on how we make cast shadows for small icons. In the next blogpost we will show you how we usually create cast shadows for larger icons, eg. for webapps and native OSX apps.
A lot of you designers out there probably already have these installed, but we still wanted to give these plugins an extra hat-tip as they greatly improve our process. We’ll be discussing GuideGuide, CSSHat, Pixel Dropr, Corner Editor & Enigma64, all great productity boosting Photoshop plugins.
Snapchat has finally found his way to the Netherlands, at least in our social circle. We were intrigued by the concept and decided to see what the fuss is all about. For us, being designers, it was a terrible experience and we decided to redesign the app. If you’re reading this on an iPhone check out this quick prototype.
Sketch by Bohemiancoding seems to be the new thing to endorse and love. Quite a few designers are writing or tweeting about how wonderful Sketch is and summarize numeral reasons why you should leave the Adobe app and come to the young and hip side. While we believe there a few things in Sketch that are superior to Photoshop, we are not yet ready to switch.
