🧵 THREAD 👇 I’m a designer with a penchant for the web, interaction design, and the intersection of creative and technology

I’m a bit of a generalist who can prototype, code, design, and direct. Currently a Sr. Designer on the Platforms & Experiences team @VMLYR

Some 🆒 stuff below. And my résumé is here if that's what you're looking for

I’m super versatile when it comes to toolset, mostly because design tools are constantly changing, generally for the better, but the ones I love and use the most are probably 👇

Sketch for big projects, bc of the stabilty of libraries and the fact that using Abstract for version control, design reviews, and handoff has been THE biggest game changer ☀️

@Figma for small projects simply because it’s not the tool of choice for the rest of my team but with multi-player, the perfected pen tool, browser-based, it seems as though it’s the future of design tools. Actually designing this in Figma rn tbh

Framer X for prototyping and I find myself using it more and more for everything else as well. Learning React has been a game changer for how I think about interfaces. Built this prototype for Asciimoji below and @Framer tweeted about it: bit.ly/asciimojiframer

Kinda related, but you can find me every year at the @DesignToolsNet Hackathon. Often in either Berlin or Tel Aviv. That’s actually where the plugin Gif.me was born 👶, but more on that here: eliasjulian.com/gifme

I made a @sketch plugin that uses machine learning to decide if an image in your design file is ~spooky~ enough. Called Spooky Sketch and it’s in the official Sketch plugin repo, download here: bit.ly/spookyplug

I have a photo blog at eliastakes.photos that has a shockingly good following over on @exposure, but it’s mostly for me to document life and not forget neat things that happen.
