An overview of the rationale and process for the design my personal monogram.

Introduction


This is an ongoing project and I will be adding relevant content throughout the process. The main goal here is to document my design process for both myself and for others who may be interested.

Recently, I opted to redesign my portfolio. It’s an ongoing project, and certainly isn’t complete. My desired outcome is to have a site that is easy for me to update, within a visual system that reflects my design philosophy. There are probably varying stances on the matter, but I am from the camp that this project should be handled no differently than one for a…

I’m a designer for a startup in Denver. I recently spent a little time investigating Principle’s transition settings. I’m a new Principle user, so it was a good exercise to break the interpolations down and see how they work. What prompted this brief study, was that I was trying to understand how exactly to control the spring of an object in a reasonably complex file. There was no duration setting, so I didn’t quite understand how Principle handled the bounce duration. More on that below.
