It was cool jamming with these guys this afternoon. Their passion for design is just infectious, and I feel I’m learning a tremendous amount from this group.
Setting up all the fonts now so I don’t have to do it again later.
As much as I want to jump ahead and design new features on Input, I actually have to take a step back and clean up our sketch files and really look at the entire system. Since we’re redesigning everything, I’m taking the time to set up everything—the fonts, the spacing, the symbols, and the asset naming. The future is looking brighter.
Juan doing some amazing illustrations.
I’m hoping I can keep the system as simple as possible. It’ll evolve over time, but I’d like to stick to a foundation that we can build on top of for the years to come.

Let me start of by saying that Brazilian food is amazing, and Fogo de Chao is da 💣. It was cool catching up with folks there, talking about design, start-up life, photography and food. Being around so many passionate people (that are masters of their craft) is inspiring.

A variety of delicious all-you-can-eat proteins.
Oh yeh, did I mention that the salad bar there is probably better than most restaurant foods? I’m crazy about the assortment of things you can try there. The quality is 👌👌.
I’m excited to announce that I’ll be teaming up with Expa as Designer-in-Residence. I’m looking forward to working with the partners, awesome engineers and entrepreneurs to create new companies.
Expa was founded by Garrett Camp, co-founder of Uber and StumbleUpon, to apply his lessons learned creating successful startups. Joined by Hooman Radfar (founder of AddThis), Naveen Selvadurai (Foursquare co-founder), Milun Tesovic (founder of Metrolyrics), Roberto Sanabria (Google, Linkedin), Vítor Lourenço (Twitter designer, co-founder of Envoy) and 25 talented in-house experts in SF & NYC, the Expa team actively guides companies. We have done this before, founding 4 industry-defining startups that have collectively reached over 100 million registered users. And now we’re applying what we’ve learned to create the next generation of startups.
I’m thrilled to be joining efforts with this gang, and they’ve given me a warm welcome. I’d like to thank Annie, my family, my friends, and everyone following me for all their support over the last few days. I’ve read all your messages, and I hope that I’ve responded to everyone. Thank you! ^_^
