Basic version control is absolutely available to designers for free, but its utility is very limited. That is because version control for design source files is a much bigger challenge than version control for text files (that is essentially what developers' source files are). Multiple companies are working on a solution which can work as a companion for Sketch, some are working on extensions to git for its easier use with source files of different design apps. Some new tools are having it build in, functionality varies though. Basic level is what essentially Sketch does via integration to your Time Machine. I would like to add, that version control for developers isn't always free, you can set up your git or basic github account for free, but if you need those collaboration, continuous integration and other such stuff you're not gonna get those for free.
Can't upvote this enough.
Not really, no. In general I prefer to avoid this kind of approach (asking team what they prefer) at all. I'd rather collect feedback in-person (either really in-person or via DM) early on when it's still sketches, and look for what would work (and why), what would not, what limitations that I'm not aware of may exist etc.
Then by the time it really is a finished mockup everyone in the team knows why everything is the way it is. Style choices may still arise, but they should be limited to design team.
Figma is good enough already to be a full-time Sketch replacement.
As far as redesigns go this one's horrendous.
The best color tool is Colorxeha, hands down. Sadly it rarely gets the spotlight or even mention.
iOS app no one asked for or wanted
If it was so there wouldn't be dozens unofficial apps.
Razer Abyssus has a perfect shape and amazing precision. The only complaint is that you have to open it to cut the fucking LED off.
It just feels really weird when video goes to freeze frame at the end. Some idle animation would be much nicer.
