So 99% of my work is based in the UK so I’ve never really had to think about domain privacy because it is included with .uk domain names through my provider. I thought it was the same for .com domains… oh was I wrong!
I’ve been using Sketch for a few years now and have not thought about going back to Photoshop since. I love using Sketch and it is so much easier to use and create amazing designs quickly.

I am one of those many people that have a fear of flying, I wouldn’t say it was so bad that I feel like I’m going to have a panic attack but it is there in the back of my mind.

I have also learned that I know what I’m talking about and I am good at what I do, after years of doubting myself.
