I use Omnigraffle a lot. I love it, and have ended up building a number of stencils of my own to make common tasks easier. That said, who really has the time to create a kick-ass iOS 7 UI elements stencil, or other really detailed designs? For that reason, I’m sharing a list of my […]
The art of the random is the art of beleaguering business analysts, without a shadow of a doubt. I can analyse something to within an inch of its life, build the most exquisite operational process, and still fail. Why?

Job’s a good’un.
