    I'm working on one of the tools Pasquale mentioned in his post. I'd love to hear any feedback or suggestions anyone has?

    I couldn't agree more with these articles, especially his comments on code being the wrong tool for design. Designing with code can be fast; I can design UI elements (buttons, forms etc.) faster in code than in AI/PS. However, code adds a layer of abstraction which can sometimes kill my design buzz.

    So part of me wants to design without thinking about code at all. Since the end goal is code though, another part of me thinks that separating design from code is like taking one step forward but two steps backward.
