Val Head: The Tools I Use
Pen & Paper: Every project I work on starts with these for sketching, storyboarding ideas, or just making sure I don’t forget an idea.
Illustrator: It’s my favourite tool for drawing anything vector and for prepping SVGs for animation.
CodePen: My go-to for making interactive prototypes, trying out ideas, and teaching.
IA Writer: Pretty much every newsletter issue, article, or blog post starts here. The unadorned interface helps keep me from getting distracted, and the preview mode makes it easy to see the structure of articles as you write.
