Design Report — October 2018
I started these monthly design reports back in last year to challenge my UI/UX design skills and grow as a designer. The main purpose of these side projects is to try out new techniques, plugins, prototyping tools and solve design challenges I’m interested in.
This article is a collection of my work created in October 2018 combined with my favorite design inspirations.
InVision Studio — Apple Pencil Charging Animation
I’m super excited about the new iPad Pro devices, so while waiting for delivery I recreated this small animation when charging the new Apple Pencil.
The goal of this post was to showcase the power of Studio by recreating an existing animation entirely inside the InVision Studio app.
Oh, and yes, this was my first .mp4 shot on Dribbble! Still can’t believe it’s finally happening! 🎉
This was also my first shot posted in the InVision Dribbble account and at the end of the day, it was the 3rd most popular post on the Dribbble homepage, which was a huge thing for me personally.
Pricing Design — Pricing your design work and dealing with price objections
This month I wrote a detailed article about pricing design work and dealing with price objections.
Writing about pricing was a challenging task since this is one of those topics, which everybody is interested in, but most of the designers are afraid to talk about it.
In this article, my goal was to summarize all the different pricing techniques I used during the past years. This way you can also experiment with these pricing methods to see which fits your needs the best.
As a bonus, at the end of this article, I listed the most common pricing objections I’ve met with, alongside with my responses to them.
The article was featured in the Prototypr.io Medium publication as well as in their amazing newsletter.
HeyDesigner also featured the article at the first place in their Business category! :)

Making my photos available on Unsplash
Since I’m already shooting custom images for my Instagram profile, I decided to publish these on Unsplash too, so others can also use them if they want.
Honestly, I was expecting that a couple hundred people will view and download these photos and would have never imagined that more than 5 million people will view my images with tens of thousands of downloads in a month!
I’m still amazed by the Unsplash community and these crazy numbers, so I will definitely continue uploading new shots there, stay tuned!
