A Day In The Life Of Designer and Front-end developer
I’m Adam Koniuszewski, and I am designer/frond-end developer. I live in Manchester with my wife, Ruth, and my 2 daughters, Florence(4) and Magdalena(1). Ultimately, all of my work is all about helping businesses grow through design and code.
That means I spend my time designing (websites, web apps, branding materials), coding, responding to support requests and meeting clients.
At work I use a 27” iMac. At home I use 21” iMac and 13” MacBook Air. For testing and browsing on the move I use iPad 2 and iPhone 4s.
Chrome is my main web browser. I spend most of my time in the Sublime Text 3 editor, iTerm2 for CLI utilities. I use git and Github/Bitbucket for code versioning and iA Writer for Markdown formatting.
I use Feedly to keep up with blog posts.
5-6am- Wake up and check my email and schedule for any fires that may need my immediate attention. Coffee. Catchup with new articles on websites I follow via Feedly. Head out to the office.
7-8am- Work on side projects, updates, fixes.
8-9am- Check and respond to emails and support tickets. Organise client work for the day.
9am-12pm- Client work
12.30pm-3pm- Client work
4.10pm-5.30pm- Head home. Pick up Florence from nursery.
7pm-8.30pm- Dinner, family time, get the girls ready for bed.
9pm-10pm- Down time. Watch coupe episodes of Family Guy or something on Netflix.
10pm-11pm- Work on side projects. Do a few lessons of current course(React and Vue.js at the moment). Prepare for the next day.
