What do you think of static design tools?
Danny de Vries Sep 13
Designing in the browser is all the rage. 'Should designers code' is a long running meme. What do you think of the static design workflow that is very common in the agency world from a development perspective?
Especially the last couple of years the landscape for design tooling got pretty scattered. We have at least 5 major tools: Sketch, Figma, Adobe XD, InVision Studio and just recently Framer X launched.
If you design something for yourself, you go straight into the browser or first explore some options in static design tools? It's not really about which tools is the best but is there still a place for these tools in the design workflow?
Following folks on dev.to has always been key to customizing the kind of content you're more likely to see in your feed and notifications, but now that we have DEV Connect I feel like there is even more we can do by following folks with shared interests and willingness to be helpful.
