As someone who has worked from home on and off over the last 18 years, I want to share a few tips for those who may be doing this for the first time this week, and might be concerned about their level of productivity.
You’re a front-end developer. A pretty good one, in fact. You love CSS like Mike Vaughan loves his Los Angeles Dodgers! You can look at a design comp provided by some random designer and use your developer x-ray vision to calc the grid where the Photoshop guidelines sit in the bloated source file — WITHOUT even having to open Photoshop and wait for the damn thing to load! Hell maybe the designer didn’t even use a grid, but that’s not gonna stop you from building one and saving his ass when it comes to executing his layout responsively!
Happy Lunar Landing Anniversary! The Washington Post utilized a nice augmented reality interface to showcase all of the different space suits used by NASA astronauts over the past space missions. Had a lot of fun with this one!
Another nifty little site that helps get the creative juices flowing when in design mode.
As a designer, developer and creative director, working from home is convenient sometimes and not so convenient others. Ideas come from everywhere and seemingly on their own time. But kick-starting the creative process can come from something as simple as cracking a beer with a teammate.
