have I really forgiven

everyone I need to forgive?

Someone once told me, resentment is like drinking a poison and then waiting for the other person to die. Resentment is bedfellows with unforgiveness. Both can sting and even feel rightfully justified reactions to pain, if someone hurts us in the moment. The problem with pain, it doesn’t just evaporate. It can linger and develop into resentment and anger.

It’s easy to know the theory, but how do we feel about it showing up in our lives? Are we prepared to even ask ourselves, have I really forgiven everyone I need to forgive? Even if they’re not part of my life now. Am I able to think of them, even bump into them and not hold onto whatever they’ve done, or feel anger?

One of Jesus’ closest friends asked him, how often should I forgive? His answer was 70 times 7.

This number isn’t just a literal sum, but a symbol of infinity. Imagining how life could be if I could forgive everything done to me. Is that an impossible concept or a radically different way to handle our pain?

None of us have ever experienced anything like this before. Give people the space to process all of that. It’s okay to slow down.

Tell me about how you got into design?

My favorite thing about this career path is that the field is constantly changing and you have to be quick to adapt. I love learning new things so this is perfect for me. It feeds my curiosity and never gets boring. Plus, I’m a natural problem solver. The crux of every website is some type of business problem needing to be solved.

Hustle culture - thoughts?

Thumbs down. Like right now, in the midst of the pandemic people are tweeting that if you don’t spend this time producing some type of output then you are wasting time. Ummmm, hello……. none of us have ever experienced anything like this before. Give people the space to process all of that. It’s okay to slow down. It’s okay to do nothing. It’s okay to seek balance. It’s okay to need to take a break from capitalism. It’s okay.

What’s the measure of your success?

Having control of my time is huge for me. It took me some time to realize that is what I value most about my freelance lifestyle. Being able to choose how, when and where I spend my time is a privilege I don’t take lightly. I actually value this over financial success any day. The dream is to attain both time and financial freedom. But I’m okay with just time for now.

Coming from using design tools like Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Sketch, etc when I stumbled on Webflow it just clicked. Being able to visually build websites was a natural extension of my workflow. Once you understand key coding concepts like the box model, responsive design, relative units, flexbox, and css grid you can build almost any marketing site using Webflow. That was very appealing to me. I no longer had to hand my designs over to a developer. I could take a project from idea to completion without the need for hand-off. And for any designer who has ever experienced the back and forth that typically comes with developer hand-off, you know exactly why learning Webflow was so appealing.

Webflow - tell me why you specialised in it?

There’s the doing the design and the business of design - how do you perceive them and work in both areas? What skills are required?

Both the doing the design and the business of design is rooted in problem solving. If you can keep that in the forefront of your mind no matter what part of the process you are in, it will go a long way. Too many times we get lost in the weeds and forget why we are doing what we are doing. So when I am designing, I do my best to link what I am doing to the business outcomes we are trying to achieve. Sometimes those outcomes are measurable, sometimes they are just intuitive, either way they are a constant presence in my process.

Do courage and design need to work together?

Absolutely. To grow in design you absolutely have to be willing to put your work out there for critique. It’s not an easy thing to do and something I still struggle with sometimes. The hardest part for me is sharing unpolished work that is in the very early stages of the process. 

The irony is that this stage of the process is where some initial feedback on the direction can help most. At this point you are more loosely tied to the current design direction then later on in the process. The design community could benefit from a space that allows us to share really rough, early stage ideas and receive really high-level feedback from a community. This would help build our critique muscle on both sides of the coin. (and no, not Dribbble).

Which voices in the design community get your attention?

I didn’t know her before yesterday but this twitter exchange with Tayler Freund really warmed my heart. Instant follow.


What would you like to see evolve for Webflow?

I would love for more of a focus on encouraging the community to implement good coding practices. A focus on using semantic HTML. A focus on accessibility. A focus on naming conventions. I’ve seen a lot of websites built on Webflow with really bad coding structure underneath. It may look good in the browser but the foundation is shaky. The recent addition of pre-made components appears to be a step in the right direction.

I loved the phrase you said, ‘I want to live a life I’ve created.’ What’s some of the dreams you want to see in your business?

I want to run my own product company. Either as a solo-founder or as a co-founder. It will be a minimalist approach to business, ala Paul Jarvis’ Company of One ethos. It will be small and profitable. It will be built using nocode tools. And of course, it will be mission-driven. It will be the first step towards being able to help more people than my current sphere of influence.
