Awesome and exciting work, Florian! I started my design career as a graphic designer, and I was always interested in the “under the hood” aspect, which was the pre-press side: setting up layers, type styles, etc. I love systems, and I think it can be easier to get a lot of things done in a code editor.
But front-end development has become so complex these days, with grunt, npm, pre-processors, compilers, and similar, that I’ve found it harder and harder to keep up with that and also do quality UX design. I’m looking forward to giving Ratio a spin!
