Proto.io upgrade

Posted on

Last week my trial of Proto.io has expired and I was going a bit crazy because I was scared I might loose all of my data. Luckily, nothing like that happened but there was still the problem of me spending me 25 pounds a month on keeping it alive so my business cards would still […]

Designing own icons

I knew they’ll have to be easily recognizable and that I will have to make them myself. The question was ‘How to categorise all the Creative skills and make icons for them?’ […]
