In my opinion, being a talented designer is not something that comes across easily to everyone. Therefore, design should be enough. Perhaps the problem is not the designers, it’s the tools. I believe design tools need to step it up and deliver or be left to wither away. This is why I’m overjoyed to see established companies like Adobe, and other up and coming software developers, willing to take on the challenge to create the latest and greatest web design tools.
Here are some of the best tools for web designers who want to focus on what they simply do best, design.
“Stop writing code, start drawing it”
Macaw provides the same flexibility as an image editor (traditionally photoshop) and goes beyond to write beautiful HTML and remarkably succinct CSS on the backend. It’s time to expect more from a web design tool.
“A tool for designing and prototyping user experiences”
Adobe is committed to staying in the design game, Following the release of Adobe Muse, we’re expected to see a suit of design tools with advanced capability for web and mobile. Comet hopes to consolidate the amount of prototyping tools used and increase the ability to design, prototypes and iterate quickly. Comet is yet to be released, preview is set for 2016.
“The tool meant for web design”
Sketch was designed to be faster and more powerful that Photoshop & Illustrator. It combines all the best features and tools designers use to Intelligent design. Finally, you can focus on what you do best: Design.
