Rapidly executed with beautiful craft.
One would usually assume that beautiful craft and rapid execution were two inherently opposite things to try and aim for. But coming from a background in design I’m usually able to build user interfaces and experiences on the fly as I developed the core platform.
The first version of Alcamy took about a month to develop in it’s entirety and the only time I used a design tool was to create the logo and a few icons.
Being a hybrid designer-developer for the past 6 years afforded me valuable insight and freedom when it came to building an amazingly well designed products on a short timeline.
