Figuring out what's next. After the startup that I co-founded failed I was facing severe depression and burnout so I took a long and extended break to recuperate. Thankfully with time and a lot of love and support from friends and family I'm feeling a lot better now!
Designing this website specifically for collecting and connecting my thoughts. Andy Matuschak's and Syzmon Kaliski's sites are huge sources of inspiration and will very likely influence the shape of my own notes.
Facing a constant stream of harrassments on Twitter because people often confuse my handle with another horrible person with the same name, and also because Twitter's reply UI sucks.
Work and projects
Conversable for Scriptable I made an open source iOS 14 widget using Scriptable that allows you to add your favourite contacts to your home screen. The widget received a nice mention in Episode 61 of the Automators podcast (~01:08:37).
Extended Icons I made a bunch of beautiful glyphs and icons for your Shortcuts. This is my first attempt at selling something as an independent maker and even though the sales are embarassingly low, I'm happy that I made them and shared the process in public.
Surat Khabar—A News Reader Surat Khabar means newspaper in the Malay language. I made this to keep up to date with the latest news earlier this year when COVID-19 happened. The live version has some bugs and I'll probably never fix them.
Sequence—A Data Labelling Startup I co-founded a data labelling startup where we helped data scientists quickly and accurately label their data. As a co-founder I've contributed immensely to the day-to-day operations of the company including product strategy and management, client project management, while also performing my roles as a Product Designer and Frontend Developer.
Supahands—A Crowdworking Platform I joined Supahands as a Product Designer and helped design, build, and ship various internal and user-facing tools including an internal design system.
Talenox—A SaaS Human Resource Startup I joined Talenox as their first Product Designer (also first hire) and helped shape the early product and platform features.
