Type of the Week

Today let us explore Aritifex Hand by Connary Fagen.

Small techniques compound and enhance your overall workflow in Design. Here are some tips that inspired me over the last few days.
Tools of the Week
Some systems, apps, products, plugins add significant value than others. Here are some you can explore this week.
FREEFORM by Apple
Over the past few months, I've tried Freeform app by Apple and it is one of the most exciting and powerful creator products to come from Apple team after Pages, Keynote or Notes. If you know Canva or Figma, this is a simpler, easier, free tool for penning down your thoughts spatially. My most favourite things about it are the interactions across devices and an ability to bring any file onto the canvas.

Often we wish we could see what is the equivalent pixel dimension of a physical size. Instead of relying on various web converters, here's a nifty little Figma plugin — Converter that can help you out right in the place you need it.
