if you can read through the schmalzy language (persona-speak?) then this is good stuff about better working in here:
Simple tweaks in communication and role-modeling based on the latest behavioral research can nudge employees into top form and create a more productive environment for everyone. A McKinsey Quarterly article.

I did check out this article about working with curves in a slightly different, but backward  compatible way.

what I find inspiring is this alternative to pushing points and handles around: pushing the segment itself around. noted here for future design work.
Before I co-founded Figma my background was in game development, not in design. I remember being very surprised when I f…

‘Never let a lyric get in the way of the groove.’ —Maurice White
People always ask me what my favorite song I've written is. I hate to favor any of the babies but pound for pound I'd have to shout “September”! I think it's an eternally uplifting song. It makes people HAPPY, not just with a capital H but ALL CAPS!! I write a lot of happy songs but even ...

went through this with a fine-tooth comb. positive:

+ direct action on the canvas, in-context
+ whittles down potentially thousands of options to the few that are relevant

negative:
- what event triggers the showing of this popup? this is a can of worms; this task is just one out of 144 that can be done at that point; show popup all the time after making/adjusting a selection? claim a primary event (e.g. right-click)?
- cops out when selecting more than one glyph; what about the rest in the selection? this is eminently solvable.
- keep feet on the ground. this covers just a few use cases; I count 6—being charitable and multiplying them out, that’s 36, out of 10.000

can that annoying, commoditised do-not-miss ‘promoCard’ at the bottom of each and every +Medium article be ad-blocked? —yes it can!

Story
Tagline
designs interaction for creatives + solutions with a wide impact on society
Introduction
Peter Sikking is an experienced interaction architect. He unabashedly puts shipping great products at the centre of his design practice. He is known for his work for Google, Nokia, the Metapolator & GIMP open source projects, and startups.

Peter is sought out by executives who have no use for average results. With a design-led process he shapes the success they are after. He also collaborates with ambitious product makers, bridging the void between their vision and their engineers.

Peter designs interaction for creatives. With deep insight into how these masters work, he creates tools that deliver the power and freedom to create. He also designs solutions with a wide impact on society. Peter brings focus to problems of near-wicked complexity and delivers solution frameworks that allow his clients to design, execute and ship.

Peter designs for global use. Increasingly his projects have a clear, sometimes even exclusive, focus on emerging and developing countries.

Peter teaches, mentors, lectures and publishes. He enjoys working with small teams in an international setting, but also the fact that his work can be found on half a billion mobiles and creates billion‐dollar revenues.

If you like to ask Peter one burning question and talk about it for ten minutes, then check out his available officehours.
Bragging rights
Peter lives and runs his firm in Berlin, Germany. He was born in 1969 in Hilversum, Holland and grew up in Amsterdam. His other interests include: typography, design, architecture; street photography; playing drums, producing music; designing + constructing ultra‑fi gear.
