  • Posted to 5 Best Kept Secrets to Mastering UI/UX Design, Aug 12, 2019

    I fell for this once. basically its a 45 minute class from a visual designer who wants you to sign up for her UX class. It's a pretty uninformed 45-minute infomercial. which I think technically is against the rules... right?

    Thanks Ivan!

    We do a lot of prototypes, including form field input pick lists, etc. These kinds of interactions don't seem possible in Figma. Figma also seems to be primarily for mobile viewports, which is about 1/3rd of the work we do, the desktop is still king for us.

    I like the idea that the team would be able to simultaneously work on the same file as we're somewhat distributed with most working from home or remote. Having a design library and files stay up to date seems like a dream.

    I have to wonder if the browser interfaces are a godsend or a curse. When zeplin isn't available the team can still work, that wouldn't be true if figma died. I think we're all sick of the subscription model pricing, which would be another drawback. do you feel like the licensing make its more expensive the sketch?

    What about the transition and all the work we have in sketch and axure today?

    I have been looking at figma off and on to see if its a good fit for my team. I want to keep an open mind about it, but I can't find a single compelling reason to even put it into an evaluation. What am I missing? what makes this a UX tool that's better than Axure/Sketch?

    I love this site and have for years. It'll be a shame to lose it. Reddit can be a wasteland and over political. I'll join you there but it won't be the same... is there no way to keep DN alive?

    I sit in 12-15 meetings a day, I can't wait to get back to being creative.

    I got my copy yesterday. Far far exceeded my expectations. I missed half a nights sleep reading it. Looking forward to bedtime tonight for more excellent reading.

    thank you!

    Same I went to buy and noticed the 100% price increase. I'm a buyer at 49.
