Waldo Broodryk Portrait

Hi, I'm Waldo Broodryk

I serve the team at Webflow,ย I'm a web designer and lover of animating all things on the web. I enjoy writing about my thoughts on web design, going hiking, snowboarding, surfing, swimming, making YouTube videos, taking pictures of our doggo and hanging out with friends and family.

Sometimes I share things on Twitter

This is likely the easiest place to get ahold of me. Just Tweet at me or send me a DM onย Twitter if you'd like to connect.

@rogie We each experience seasons of passionate creative work. Which I cherish, and am intentional about deriving as much value as possible out of. I do my best to live those out in all I do. Then seasons where your attention is channeled elsewhere, often out of necessity.

@rogie I experienced an awful project failure earlier this year which crushed me. I let it creep in to so many areas or my life. But, I'm thankful to be on the other side of that now ๐Ÿ’œ That energy you have, is a gift. I'm so thankful that you share it as it inspires and encourages ๐Ÿ’œ

@galenking @webflow Great question! You would need to upload resized assets if you're using them as background images. If you're using inline images (dragging an image element onto the canvas directly in the grid), then we'll create responsive variants of each of those images.

@gtvrhs @WebflowSupport Thank you so much for the feedback! I can share that it's not an arbitrary number, but instead one which we found by testing out browser and system limits for the best performance possible. Totally understand a need for higher volume uploads and hope to provide that one day.

@galenking @webflow Thank you so much for the extra context! If it's a background image, then we will serve up the full size asset. If it's an inline image, then we'll serve up a resized variant based upon the screensize at the initial web page document load.

I've struggled with insomnia since high school. My goal is to get 6hrs of sleep a night as I've averaged 3-5 hrs of sleep a night for ~10 years now. When I get more than 6hrs for over a month, I typically go way up in weight and depression hits hard. https://t.co/9upKHvwzof
