I try to repeat that at least 2 times a day:
The problem with Photoshop is that what’s being created is actually a fiction. It somewhat resembles what the final product might look like, but it’s not real. Layout and typography decisions are made that often don’t translate accurately to HTML. We spend hours designing for a medium that’s interactive and responsive, but we start by producing mockups that are static and inflexible. If great design is not only aesthetics but also how it works, then it’s time to make development part of the creative process.

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be joining the wonderful Berlin based startup ezeep as their new designer. I already had the chance to work with some very talented folks from the ezeep team and I can’t wait to see what awesome stuff we’ll come up with together.
This means I’m transitioning from solo freelancing & contract work to full time employment within a team. No bureaucracy, no invoicing, no joggling with many projects at the same time and no pyjama work dress anymore. Just pure design. And there’s this concept of so called weekends, where I’m not supposed to work. Crazy stuff.
