Knowledge Sharing Session on Wordpress

At YoungInnovations, sharing one’s knowledge never stops. While the pandemic might have slowed down the frequency of it, the innovators are still enthusiastic on sharing their skills. Here’s a brief on the upcoming Wordpress sharing session:

Jenish Shrestha is planning on giving two sessions on Wordpress in coming weeks. The two part series will focus on basics of Wordpress and backend development (without coding) and extending the power of Wordpress with Gatsby. …

Namaste everyone to the second edition of this year’s weekly. Today marks the first lunar eclipse of 2020 and the start of this year’s Swasthaani Brata Katha. It’s been a rather quiet week here at YoungInnovations. Here’s what happened,

Structural changes at YI

As mentioned in the last week’s weekly, YoungInnovations is going through a structural change. While the impact of this might be too soon to talk about, people are still warming up to their new seating and “infrastructure” arrangements and getting on with their newly assigned projects. We are looking forward to 2020 so see the impact.

There is no denying that a developing city has a lot of problems. Kathmandu (the capital city of Nepal) is definitely not an exception to that. The good thing is problems bring in a lot of opportunities. And when the government themselves come up with an initiative to create a platform for the youths to mitigate those issues, you feel motivated to do something about it.

The initial conversations

We were approached by the City Planning Commission (CPC) of Kathmandu municipality to co-organize the Smart Urban Technology Challenge Kathmandu. We took on the responsibility and agreed to lead the technology and creatives front.

Symbols are components that can be reused as instances in a Sketch document. A symbol can embed other symbols in it and such a symbol is called a nested symbol.

Nested symbols help us to extend the power of a symbol and provide a bag of opportunities. One such opportunity is creating multiple instances of an icon symbol but with ability to switch colors. Lets see how this works.

Creating an icon symbol

The first step is to create an icon and turn it into a symbol. For example, lets build a search icon as shown here:

Hi there. Unlike almost all of my past posts, this post is not a long tutorial and neither a quick tip. I just wanted to share about a session we’ve been organizing at IT colleges and tech related groups: Designing User Interfaces

It’s been a while since I’ve written a design quick tip (the last one was almost 2 years ago — Feb, 2016). With this post, I’m hoping to continue this series again. 🤞🏽

Here’s a scenario. Imagine we’re designing horizontal navigation for a site. We type in navigation items and distribute them horizontally. Boom! Our navigation is ready. Now, lets say we need to edit one of the navigation’s layers in the middle. Most of the time, this would lead to changing a layer’s width which in turn would probably break the equal spaces among our navigation items. We will…

I’ve been searching for a decent map ui design solution/ workflow for quite sometime now. At YoungInnovations, we constantly run across projects that require a map element in their UI. Until few weeks ago, I used to implement following solution:

Screenshot of Google map

This was back in the time when I didn’t know much about maps and at times where we simply used Google’s default map: Find the place of interest → take a screenshot of the map → crop out unnecessary parts → paste it into the design. …


“Experience is the teacher of all things”. — Julius Caeser

It’s been nine and half years since YoungInnovations came into existence. In these many years, the company has come across a lot of immensely talented people. Some have parted ways while some are still working with us.

We’re launching a series of blog posts that highlights experiences of these people at YoungInnovations. They’ll be talking about how their time here helped them shape their career. This post is the first of the series.

One of our key objectives has always been to empower an individual’s skills so that even when…
