Other Experience
  • Design A Better Website: Foundations First (Publication)
    Most designers only publish their finished, polished wireframes and mock-ups without revealing how much work really goes into research and content organization. What results is a community that assumes that design is all about jumping into a composition. This understanding of design produces faulty products. In this article, Alex Gurevich gives us a walkthrough of his workflow for the design of a significant non-profit company's website, explaining with each step how a thorough preliminary process leads to holistic web page design.
  • Sketch vs. Photoshop: Is It Time To Switch From Photoshop To Sketch? (Publication)
    Sketch promises a faster workflow and greater ease-of-use than its counterparts. You can think of Sketch as Illustrator with some Photoshop stitched together, but that’s only part of the story. Many Adobe features that you don’t use 90 percent of the time have been stripped out, giving us a streamlined tool that is designed to quickly prototype everything from simple wireframes to complex mockups. In this article, Toptal freelance designer Alex Gurevich takes a closer look at the Sketch vs. Photoshop dilemma, explaining which has the advantage from a variety of perspectives.
