How to make a "Briefcase" icon in @figmadesign.

In a 24 x 24 pixel artboard, use the rectangle tool (R) to draw a 18 x 10 pixel rectangle positioned horizontally centered and 6 pixels from the top of the artboard.
Using the ellipse tool (O), draw a 96 x 96 pixel circle and align the top to the center/top of the rectangle. Select both shapes and use the boolean tool to intersect the group.
Using the ellipse tool (O), draw a 48 x 48 pixel circle and align the bottom to the center/bottom of the rectangle. Select both shapes and use the boolean tool to intersect the group.
Flatten the shape (command + E) and double click it to make it editable. Select the top left and right points and give them a 2 pixel corner radius. Select the bottom left and right points and give them a 1 pixel corner radius.
Using the rectangle shape tool (R), draw a 16 x 10 pixel rectangle positioned horizontally centered and make the bottom 3 pixels from the bottom of the artboard.
Using the ellipse tool (O), draw a 96 x 96 pixel circle and align the bottom to the center/bottom of the rectangle. Select both shapes and cut them using the intersect boolean group tool.
Flatten the shape (command + E) and double click it to make it editable. Select the bottom left and right points and give them a 2 pixel corner radius.
Select both shapes and convert them to a centered stroke and flatten them together (command + E). Using the pen tool (P), add 2 points where the shapes intersect (zoom in if the pen isn’t snapping into position).
Delete the overlapping lines.
Double click the shape to make it editable so you can add connecting points. Use the pen tool (P) to manually draw the handle connected to the top. I made it ~3 x 8 pixels. Give the points a 2 pixel corner radius.
To create the dot button, draw a rectangle and manually adjust the size to 0.01 and give it a stroke.
Flatten the layers (command + E) and adjust the stroke to your desired radius/width (Rounded/1.5 pixel stroke shown below).

"I really want to break into Product Management"

"If only someone would tell me how I can get a startup to notice me."

Make Products.

"I guess it's impossible and I'll never break into the industry."

MAKE PRODUCTS.

Courtesy of @edbrisson's wonderful thread on breaking into comics –
https://t.co/TgNblNSCBj – here is why the same applies to Product Management, too.


There is no better way of learning the craft of product, or proving your potential to employers, than just doing it.

You do not need anybody's permission. We don't have diplomas, nor doctorates. We can barely agree on a single standard of what a Product Manager is supposed to do.

But – there is at least one blindingly obvious industry consensus – a Product Manager makes Products.

And they don't need to be kept at the exact right temperature, given endless resource, or carefully protected in order to do this.

They find their own way.
Ok, I’ve told this story a few times, but maybe never here. Here we go. 🧵👇


I was about 6. I was in the car with my mother. We were driving a few hours from home to go to Orlando. My parents were letting me audition for a tv show. It would end up being my first job. I was very excited. But, in the meantime we drove and listened to Rush’s show.

There was some sort of trivia question they posed to the audience. I don’t remember what the riddle was, but I remember I knew the answer right away. It was phrased in this way that was somehow just simpler to see from a kid’s perspective. The answer was CAROUSEL. I was elated.

My mother was THRILLED. She insisted that we call Into the show using her “for emergencies only” giant cell phone. It was this phone:


I called in. The phone rang for a while, but someone answered. It was an impatient-sounding dude. The screener. I said I had the trivia answer. He wasn’t charmed, I could hear him rolling his eyes. He asked me what it was. I told him. “Please hold.”
