We at MacPaw have created a dedicated YouTube video playlist called “Cut Corners” to keep you updated.
What is Cut Corners?
Cut Corners is a design-focused monthly digest in which MacPaw designers bring you all the essential updates from the world of design. Each month, our talented team will cover industry news and events and delve into the latest trends in UI/UX, product design, graphics, and creativity. Subscribe to our main PawTech channel now so you don't miss a single episode.
What’s inside the first episode?
In the pilot episode of Cut Corners, I’ve decided to cover a fantastic collaboration between Loewe and Studio Ghibli. They've created fashion collections inspired by the amazing animated films of Hayao Miyazaki. Plus, there's an interactive mobile experience that really brings the Loewe x Studio Ghibli collab to life, showing just how well design and development can work together.
I also talk about my experience in the Hexagon UX mentoring program, a prominent organization that brings more diversity to the field. As a mentee in their Confidence and Mental Health workshop, I’ve gained valuable insights into overcoming self-doubt and taking charge of my circle of control. I know that won’t be enough for most of you, so I’ve got some real gems on impostor syndrome and how it impacts high-achievers.
I also wanted to give a shout-out to an online talk by a fellow colleague from Setapp on how to use Figma during a real-world crisis. Being ready for Figma’s pitfalls is super helpful during blackouts or even when camping. In short, Figma pros suddenly become cons, but it's more complicated than that.
Also, in this episode: I discuss what to read to spark your creativity and explore how macpawians shift careers in case you need to hear some inspiring “unstuck” stories.
Guess what? The first Cut Corners episode is already up on our PawTech channel. Go check it out – I think you'll enjoy it!
