  • Cli basics

    This series, by Kezz Bracey, isn’t about “how to run obscure commands for tasks you never do.” Nor is it a “complicated dev process made easy for designers” type of a deal. This is a series specifically for web designers, showing you how to utilize command line tools that are incredibly useful specifically for web design projects.

    Once you start bringing the command line into your design processes it’ll open up a whole new world of options, save huge swathes of your precious time, and, we promise, you’ll never look back.
