I'm creating a background illustration of a path weaving through trees that has to tile vertically. I made a symbol (top) in Sketch then tiled the symbol on a dummy artboard (below) so I could position and preview the trees in context/real-time to ensure it tiled naturally. 🌲🎉

Observation: If you take all the bits of the new slack logo and line them up end-to-end it's exactly the same length as a Gregg's vegan sausage roll.

tfw you've been using Illustrator shortcuts since 1998 and you're trying to work quickly in Sketch

tfw you leave your iPhone plugged in tucked under your pillow and it performs an update whilst you sleep
