Hi, my name is

Rafael Conde

I design for passion & code for fun


I've recently joined Superlist as their first designer, and we're building a new productivity app for teams of the future — in many ways it's the spiritual successor of Wunderlist, and I couldn't be more excited about this new challenge.

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.

Hand Mirror

A Mac app that lives in the menu bar, and when you click on it you get a view from your camera, to check yo face before joining a video call.

Built this little app in a weekend and it was super fun to finally work on a macOS app — after all these years I could scratch this one off my bucket list.

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 — I have some ideas for the future of this app, so keep your ey… ears open.

Sound effects

All sounds were recorded by Rafa and/or royalty free

Made why

Thought it would be fun

Yeah but like, why call it 'thwip'?

It's the sound that Spider-People's web-shooters make

What? Webshooters?

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.

Picture of an Apple Watch strapped to the palm of your hand, making the webshooting hand pose like Spider-Man, whilst tapping on the button to make it fire up the sound effect — it's fun

Excuse me, I demand to speak with the manager!

Feel free to send me an email at rafahari@gmail.com or tweet at me @rafahari — be nice.


Layout is a weekly podcast about design, technology, and everything else—now on the Spec Network.

I record it with my friend Kevin Clark and it's one of the most fulfilling side projects I have ever done. We've recorded more than 100 episodes so far, and have met tons of great listeners and now friends all around the world.

Give it a listen

Break this Safe

An watch game in which you take advantage of the Digital Crown and haptic feedback to break into a safe.

I designed and built this game from scratch and wrote a bit about the process. I’m currently working on version 2 — DM me on Twitter if you want to help build it.

Learn more about the game, and download it maybe?
