    +1 on all of the other recommendations: ProtoPie, Framer, and even Principle are great and can provide that level of interaction.

    I would also recommend looking into Origami, which may have a bit steeper of a learning curve (like Framer), rather than something simpler like ProtoPie

  • Posted to In Figma, What is your approach to designing for different platforms, Android, iOS, Web?, Jan 28, 2020

    I'm in the same boat - my quick way of keeping some items organized was to abstract design tokens (text, colors, shadows, etc.) out to another file. I would then have a components file for each of my environments (web, iOS, android), which would each utilize the design tokens file.

    Hopefully that makes sense, but would be definitely be interested if someone figured out a better way to manage this.

    Many of us have felt the influence of his boundary-pushing work - he even concepted the (highly-polarizing) mech designs in Turn A Gundam

    Every team/designer has their preferred methodology for doing this in a way that best suits their work styles and product.

    While some design systems still employ the web element naming convention, others (like https://evergreen.segment.com/components/typography) use simple scales prefixed with the generic function of that text - which may help for designing between web and native too.

    Hey Davide!

    I feel Asana lends itself better to editorial scheduling better than for iterative design tasks.

    Notion has been working great for me - I could have notes for research followed by simple tables for interview feedback, as well as embed Figma prototypes, codepen snippets, etc directly in a single document. It allowed us to manage our projects and design assets all in one place.

    Switched to Notion from Bear Notes earlier this year. Notion also lets you manage multiple workspaces without multiple logins - similar to how Slack handles different teams.
