As a product designer I spend as much time writing and planning as I do creating visuals.
Figma: For wireframing, prototyping & general UI / UX design.

It's worth taking a look at my Dotfiles for much more info about my setup.

Fish: A modern terminal shell that has great auto-complete, syntax hightlighting, and history searching.

Sony WH-1000XM3 Headphones: for listening to music & video calls. The noise cancelling is great.
My approach to clothing is pretty simple, I always prefer clothing that is made to last, and if possible I buy as much good second-hand clothing as I can. If you ever meet me in person I'll probably be wearing:
A flannel shirt from Jack Wills, that I've bought second hand from eBay. I like their quality and fabrics.
A t-shirt, my goto basic is a Gildan Hammer.
If I'm walking I'll likely be wearing my beloved GoRuck GR1 backpack, which I will probably be able to pass down to my grand-children.
