I hated maths.

Actually, I can create beautiful concepts if I know more about maths!

Spinner is a great place to apply trigonometry.

1. How many points this spinner will have? (i.e: 3 points)
2. On a circle, where each point should be? (i.e: every 120 degrees)
3. In an iteration, how would you like to animate each point? (i.e: In and out, stretch and shrink.)

Can I use it for work?

Exploring design with algorithms, mathematics, and observation. Silly but kind person. You can see my work at jinju.io 😉
