Empty States

Community Resource

A popular industry resource providing UX inspiration for the often forgotten state of an app; when the application has no data. This often happens when onboarding new users or when users decide to delete existing data.

Nudge & Resize

Adobe XD Plugin

Something that really frustrates me about Adobe XD is that lack of resize commands based on keyboard shortcuts. In Sketch you can use ⌘ ← to resize a shape and ⌘ SHIFT ← to resize it in larger increments. Strangely, in Adobe XD the ‘nudge’ value is set to 10px even though the default grid is set to 8px.

I wrote a plugin to add keyboard shortcuts and a nudge distance setting.
