I design and make apps and stuff
I started the year of 2023 by joining the Product Design team at Sketch, an app that has meant so much for me both personally and professionally.Visit our landing page
A Mac app that lives in your menu bar, and when you click on it you get a view from your camera.
Built this in a weekend back in 2020 and it has been a dream side project for me ever since — a small macOS app that people seem to enjoy and it has gotten several App Store features and writing about by The Verge, MacStories, 9to5Mac and others.
I hope it would make my 17 year old self proud!Download from the Mac App Store
A Mac app that lets you set custom Dock settings for when on different displays.
I wanted to have my Dock visible when connected to my large external display, but hidden and smaller when on my laptop, I couldn't believe that there was no way to do that so I built this.Download for free
I got to scratch "work with friends" off my bucket list when I joined Sam Soffes and Bryn Jackson as their Founding Designer at Along 📼
The goal was to build the best platform for creators to produce amazing content, engage their community, and make a living.
I joined Netlify in 2016 as their first designer and was responsible for designing and scaling our app's UI for the next 5 years.
I’ve also led the 2018's marketing and brand redesign, and helped hire and grow our incredible Product Design team.Learn more about Netlify
Convenient and fun way to keep track of your breastfeeds,
on your iPhone and Apple Watch.
We had our first baby this year and my partner is breastfeeding — one weekend she asked if I could write an app for her to keep track of which boob did she feed our baby with last, and at what time. This is that app.Download on the App Store
Your portable soundboard, right on your Apple Watch, for free!
I think sound effects make life 7% funnier, so I've built a soundboard for your Apple Watch with a Spider-Man Web Shooter mode.Download on the App Store
Web sounds by
All sounds were recorded by Rafa and/or royalty free
Thought it would be fun
Yeah but like, why call it 'thwip'?
It's the sound that Spider-People's web-shooters make
This app was originally just a one button thing and you would strap your watch to the palm of your hand and make 'Spider-People' noises
No further questions
Ok, thanks so much for downloading this app. I have exciting plans for future updates, follow @rafahari or @thwipapp on Twitter to be on top of them ✨
The sound is coming from my headphones.
Swipe from the bottom to bring up Control Center, tap the AirPlay icon and make sure 'Speaker' is selected.
Why is the 'spider web' button bigger than the others? Is this a bug?
Hey I see what you did there, but spiders aren't actually bugs. The button is bigger so that it's easier to hit if you're, let's see, using it to pretend you're one of your favorite super-heroes.
Excuse me, I demand to speak with the manager!
Feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet at me @rafahari — be nice.
