As individuals, and as designers, we are all looking for those special qualities in our jobs. It can sometimes be overwhelming stepping into the job market. We question: Will the role be challenging enough? What can I expect to work on? How do my own values match to that of the business? After a while the answers just become guess… Read More →

Welcome to Dear Developer’s entry seven. It’s the dawn of summer in London, providing bundles of vitamin D and some once in a blue moon smiling faces. Including my own. And what better to whack a smile on your face on top of the sunny weather than a little HTML hack? That’s what I thought. If you’ve been following this… Read More →

Designing for a cause is celebrated at Marvel and recently we’ve been seeing inspiring stories emerge one after the other about sharing knowledge and empowering others. Last week on Twitter, Pablo Stanley’s design workshop for children was circulating the masses and we were overwhelmed to see that Marvel was playing a part in the lesson! Happy as Larry, we grabbed… Read More →

Since we launched Marvel in 2013, there have been so many amazing stories of how it’s being used out there in the ether. Marvel was created with the vision of democratising design, enabling creatives who perhaps hadn’t given themselves a chance and the professionals alike to create high fidelity, interactive digital mockups. But the impact it’s had with the younger… Read More →

This March, we were super proud to sponsor Design Club – the event where the creative community figure out what’s next. This time the loyal crowd of designers and creatives flocked to Hackney House and piled inside in their masses for insightful discussion and some drinks on to go with it. This one sold out in record time of 2… Read More →

My last posts in the Dear Developers series so far have been focused on the lessons I’ve learned from various coding classes and the step by step basics of HTML & CSS. This post is a something a little more special as I’m going to share my progress in building my own website from scratch. I’ll be sharing some nuggets… Read More →

My head has been wrapping itself around boxes. Organising them, resizing them and generally just being made aware that they exist. If you haven’t already guessed it, this next post in my Dear Developer series of learning HTML and CSS is of course about the Box Model. Not, in fact, figurative boxes. After a long holiday in the Caribbean and… Read More →

I was born in the age where people still wrote on paper for their school homework and back then I was obsessed with handwriting. Honestly, it was kind of a problem and I might have looked fairly psycho to anyone who flicked through a notebook of mine as I’d test a new one out every two weeks. Computers stole this… Read More →

Here we are, entry three of the ‘Dear Developers’ series and so far I’ve explained why I’m learning to code, asked my stupid questions and have done the first basic few lines of code which are building the first page of my website. I’ve been excited this week – not just because my website is currently looking as bland as… Read More →

We’re super excited to announce the latest update for our Sketch Plugin which transforms your favourite design tool into the perfect companion for prototyping in Marvel. There are two major new features to the plugin – the ability to play prototypes directly in Sketch and also record your flows as a video!

It’s been two weeks since I announced to the world I’d be learning to code from scratch and documenting it all here on the internet…for everyone to see. And if that isn’t a motivator, I don’t know what is. The past couple of weeks have flown by, as they always do. You’ll be proud to know I stuck to my… Read More →
