I built a physical Sketch panel, would love to know what you think(medium.com)

    I think is is really impressive and well-documented. And what I'm about to say next is not meant to be critical or cynical - it's just another perspective.

    Personally, I struggle to spend time optimizing my workflow to this extent. My gut-feel cost/benefit analysis says that in the time I'd spend creating a new efficiency and documenting it, I could've done a ton of actual design at 1-5% slower rate than with this new tool that will be outdated/obsolete pretty quickly.

    I've also found that as soon as I'm settled in a workflow I've optimized, the market shifts and a new tool replaces the one I've invested in. For example, I haven't opened Sketch in 6 months because Figma is just better for me and where I work.

      Glad to hear your perspective! What are the benefits in Figma compared to Sketch?

        It's in the cloud, super easy to share, versioning no longer matters, great for collaborative whiteboarding/designing. Devs prefer it, no need for zeplin, shared library is really good, prototyping is just as good or better.
