Any Distance – Workout Story Designer
This post is funny for me as I try to “experience” everything I feature on this newsletter (so I can vouch for it’s quality). If there was one post I have thoroughly tested, it’s the Any Distance app – coincidently built by my next Yo! Podcast guest, Luke Beard. Coined as “The Workout Story Designer” it’s honestly a delight to make your mundane Strava routes look absolutely gorgeous.
Lens – Image Converter
Massive fan of minimal apps like these. With Lens you can simply drag in 50 PNG/GIF images and convert them to 70% quality JPGs for example. It’s free for macOS.
Spaced Landing Page
So many impressive elements in this Landing Page for social distancing app, Spaced. Make sure you take that intro device mock-up for a spin (seen here) and experience the in-page demo where you drag the characters to a safe distance, changing the website background from red to green.
Flagpack – Open Source Icons
260+ open source flag icons to use in your design tool (Figma, Sketch) or in your code project (React, Vue, Angular).
Highly-curated resource to help you spark inspo or find refs based on 70+ in-trend colors. The colors are presented in a unique horizontal stacked layout and even include a useful bookmark function.
Glassmorphism CSS Generator
Neat little online tool to help refine your “Glassmorphism” style elements (via blur and transparency) within your sites.
Spline 3D Design Tool
3D design tool Spline has finally launched and looks real promising. The interactive Landing Page (seen here) allows you to drag page elements to rotate them and hover the elements to spin them. Fun stuff!
Pulse Demonstration by Claudia Bueno
Inspirational 5-min vid sharing how Claudia Bueno transitioned her fascination for patterns in nature into a jaw-dropping exhibition in Los Vegas.
Quantity vs Quality
Gary Vee content is mostly off-topic for the newsletter but this one really resonated with me. The quantity vs quality debate drastically changes with different objectives, and these words are worth remembering in the work we do. If the topic is something you’re battling with too, this article on quality vs consistency is brilliantly put together by Shawn Wang.
