👋 Hi! My name is Juan (a.k.a JJ)
I'm a seasoned Product Designer who loves to design, code and hack together cool software products! I'm also the creator of
If this is the first time you visit Waveguide you may be surprised to learn that this website used to be way larger and had a lot more resources than it does now.
This is the gist of what happened 😅
I created Waveguide as a design inspiration and research hub. Before shutting it down it had:
+6000 registered users
+20k monthly views
+10k landing pages screenshots
+500 mobile screenshots
+100 of entries in UX knowledge
Every resource was augmented with color palettes, categorizations, reading insights and many other cool stuff that was automatically generated through a pipeline of serverless Machine Learning functions.
I invested a lot of time and money into Waveguide, but it never felt like I was in a trajectory to achieve the level of content quality and quantity that could have allowed me to monetize the website.
So I shut it down because I lost motivation and got tired of spending money on it. I only kept this static version that contains my favorite content.
You may be wondering: Why is he telling me all this stuff? 🤔
I want like-minded people to get in touch with me! 📬
I was exhausted with Waveguide, but I'm eager to explore new ideas! So I saw this downscale as an opportunity to connect with interesting people by showing how I think and what I can do!
