News, work, goodies & freebies from the studio

We sent our last newsletter in February, and the wheels have turned a lot faster since then.

Times are tough and we know that many jobs and businesses have been impacted in recent months due to different macroeconomic circumstances. If you were too, please know that you’re not alone. We’re here to offer support in any way we can. Please don’t hesitate to reach out and let us know how we can help.

Here is a post by Siddharth Sharma on his learnings from previous recession. Additionally, there is a Twitter thread collecting all current open positions across product management, design, and engineering verticals. Head Out is hiring Design Engineers, and Mathworks is looking for designers.

The last couple of months at the studio have been akin the duck metaphor - quiet on the surface, hell lot of movements underneath.

Towards the end of 2022, the team conducted retros of few projects and also looked back at the year. we realised that while we were putting our best work out there and the clients were happy, our processes needed little more love and also a stern look.

We identified internal project management as one of the core processes we could supercharge for both short and long-term benefits, and spent the first quarter streamlining them.

✨ off-site

Team went to Lonavala in March for our first off-site of the year. Our conversations ranged from points from the retros and prioritising them by short-, medium-, and long-term impact; to Baba Sehgal’s music. We will spare you the boring stuff but Baba’s music is something you should definitely check out. NOW!

We didn’t pick up new projects this quarter. It was part-deliberate, part-circumstantial decision - the inquiries that came in weren’t always the best fits.

We are using our time to document our work from the last few years.

You should check this reel in its 4k glory.

If you are designer experimenting with design systems, you have come across the problem of designing complex components - think dialog boxes, bottom sheets. These components act as vessels to hold content, but at the same time need their own stylistic rules.

Figma slots for complex components

Faced with this challenge more often than he could tolerate, Karthik wrote about how the concept of Figma slots could be extended to address this scalability problem. Give it a read.
