It's two entirely different tools. Axure is for prototyping and wireframes, and for that, it works way faster than Sketch and gives way more structure. For sketching interfaces and doing the interface work, Axure is not a choice at all, because it's for prototyping and wireframing, so here Sketch is the answer. So it all depends on what you wanna do with the tool of choice. So you have to choose first if you need an axe or a hammer, then you won't have to convince your boss.
What about compatibility with Sketch and Photoshop? When you say make an app layout in Affinity Designer, how do you share it with programmers?
I have some ;( though, it crushed just a few times in a year I've used it. But there are some annoying bugs that don't lead to crushes, like screen redraw problems, glitches with symbols, broken undo (though most of the time it can be fixed by copying all file contents to a new file and resaving it).
Well, Adobe subscription packs a lot of different software for 49, not just one, so how can you compare them? ;)
Good point there, thanks man! But do you mean using symbols for that, or what? Because they suck a bit, like changing size of one symbol changes size for all of them, and if you detach, changes are not being propagated anymore. All in all, breaking into components and making a style guide possible would make my life much easier, so thanks ;)
Sometimes some things change, like background images can be added (skins are app versions for different brands). But I get your point, and it's a very nice idea. May be documenting changes needed, instead of making them will take less time ;) Actually I don't need to have all mockups recolored, as they share a lot of elements, just 5-7 to show new client how it will look like. The rest is needed only to show developers what's changed, but they actually don't need every window too as they also change components. So thanks a lot!
Thanks a lot, Shaun! It looks pretty interesting, gonna try now.
1) Most likely, people don't care when some mantra was added to site. What does it change for me if it was on January 7 or September 14? 2) There should be some keyboard shortcuts like arrows to navigate faster, as for now "Archives" page is much more useful than the main page ;) 3) You should also add some sort of more visible arrows to the right/left of every mantra so people won't have to find them at the top of page. At all, it looks pretty neat ;)
Well at least you should try spending those 5 days to present the portfolio online instead of downloading ZIP (!) with images (!) inside.
I buy a lot of courses on Udemy, and what's fantastic about their approach, is that they let people preview some lessons before buying. I noticed the free lesson, but usually first, very simple lesson doesn't tell anything about how useful will other lessons be. And there're a lot of courses that become useless after some lessons. So in your case it will be cool to be able to preview 2-3 lessons from different parts of the course, with links available right from the curriculum, to taste if it fits — because in case it is, 89$ is a nice price tag for such course. You can even let people preview incomplete lessons — like first 5 minutes — it's enough to understand, if you like the course or not. All in all, it seems like a nice course ;) So keep it up!
