Waldo Broodryk Portrait

Hi, I'm Waldo Broodryk

I serve the team at Webflow. 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 onΒ Twitter if you'd like to connect.

Send me a tweet

@thepixelgeek So what you're saying is that people in San Diego may have felt like this today as they were driving? Video-alt: Ship weathering a massive storm in the open ocean. https://t.co/qAFHim9d8P

@joeDmarti I totally wrote lyrics to a song this morning about how we're all creators.

November 17, 2019

@JessMeuse @taylorswift13 You're so right, Jess! Creators deserve better and should be able to share their creative work, especially outside of an NDA πŸ’œ. Y'alls music is played all over; you wrote it, to share it. πŸ’― The greed and selfishness that's attempting to prevent you from sharing, is ridiculous

November 17, 2019

Saw this toy at a store and it seemed relevant because I've seen the mention of the term "boomers" lately. Please note: I am not caught up on the political aspect of said term πŸ˜… I imagine this toy would upset some people and amuse others. I don't want to make a racket πŸ‡πŸŽΎ https://t.co/Lf3JSZLrYg

November 16, 2019

@whale πŸ‘I believe that most tailors will do *custom* work, like that and wouldn't necessarily call it "crazy." πŸ’œπŸ™‡β€β™‚οΈ Might be able to find some locally (a lot of tux/wedding dress shops do that work), I don't know of any online tailors, but I'm certain there has to be at least one 😁

@KingDogDad @EdgarAllanCo @parkerthompson_ @customink You've got a full plate, Emmett πŸ’œ I believe in you! Do you have a commute each day or spend much time doing chores?

@AndrewDelPrete I do set goals all the time, and have done so every year for as long as I can remember πŸ€” This is my first time setting public goals for the year, I'm working on a recap now and thinking through 2020. Upon reflection, I set many goals, and it's lead to me settling too often. πŸ€”

November 16, 2019

@AndrewDelPrete After I finish up a little project, I'm working on a blog post that I wrote a while back around goal setting. Thank you for the reminder, Andrew! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜„ Goal setting has been incredibly fruitful in my life and I highly, highly recommend it. Dream big, too πŸ’œ.

It's interesting to see the notches on my belt with the most wear.

How do you exit a mindset of inadequacy, and enter a mindset of taking action?
