Introducing Khoi Vinh, Principal Designer at Adobe
Describe your current position at Adobe
I’m a Principal Designer at Adobe. I spend a lot of my time out in the field with customers at conferences to learn what happens in the design industry. I bring that back and try to marry it with our roadmap for Adobe XD, our new design and prototyping tool for UX/UI designers. This way we’re building exactly what our customers want.
What productivity tips save you time and improve your focus?
For me, the best productivity tip is to write everything down. I capture everything I need to do in a task manager. As soon as something comes to my head that I want to do during the day, I write it down no matter how big or small it is. It helps me clear space in my head to focus on the best part of the job: designing.
How often do you use CloudApp? What do you use it for?
I use CloudApp a dozen times a day to share with my coworkers, my friends around the world, and my family. CloudApp is an indispensable tool because it’s easy and fast to share anything from my computer.
What’s your favorite feature of CloudApp?
My favorite feature of CloudApp is being able to capture something in the clipboard, upload it with a keyboard shortcut and then immediately getting that link back so I can paste it into Slack, an e-mail or what have you. And all that can happen in a second or two at most. That immediacy makes life so much easier for me.
