Is it August already?!

August 2020 Newsletter — Letter #2

Hey there,

If you’re new here, welcome! Can you believe we’re in August already? This year has been wild 😯. If you’re productive during this time, our kudos to you. If you’re not, that’s okay. Either way, we hope you’re taking care of yourself.

For now, here’s some stuff.

Good Stuff of the Month:

Overflow is our favourite tool for UI flows creation. Even though Whimsical is also great, it doesn’t let you import your UI screens from Sketch, Figma & XD with a click of a button like Overflow does; which means no more confusion about which screen goes where when you’re ready to hand off your designs to your engineer friends.

Spend US$15/seat per month & stop the back & forth.

Three user avatar pictures communicating with comments on the same Overflow share link.

Freshly Added:

  • We’ve been preparing some Design Proposals for some new leads & Better Proposals has been a godsend. Suppose you’ve just started your freelance business & you’re not sure about what to include in your proposals to win clients & protect yourself. In that case, Better Proposals may be able to help. They offer a wide range of templates for various types of design projects.

    You can always find Better Proposal under Tools > Business on MakeStuffUp.Info.

  • Another new addition to the site is this article written by Carrie Webster on Information Architecture. Fun fact, our founder & curator, Shay, had worked with Carrie previously. No bias here, though. Carrie is a lovely person with an extensive pool of UX knowledge & we’re delighted to have Carrie & her work featured on the site.

    This piece is filed under Knowledge > Articles > Discovery.

  • Mockupworld is “the original biggest source of free photo-realistic Mockups online” & they’re not lying & we don’t think they’re lying. As Designers, we rely on mockups to represent our work in the best light. Making good mockups is a part of our job & Mockupworld definitely makes our lives a bit easier.

    This resource was, in fact, submitted by a member of our community. If you want to submit a resource, please do it so here. More submission will be added in the upcoming months.

    You can also find this resource under Tools > Presentation with other mockup tools.

Other Stuff:

  • Our friends at Designmodo has recently updated their website. Check out their new awesome site here!

    We love Designmodo’s products here at MakeStuffUp.Info. If you’re looking for an email newsletter visual builder or if you’re looking for a Bootstrap site builder, Designmodo got you.

  • Finally, our friends at Flaticon is having 40% off on all of their plans. Discounts active until August 21.

That’s it for this month. We hope to see you again next time!

Until then, keep on makin’ stuff up. (And, of course, stay safe!)
