  • Posted to Designers, what does trouble you in your journey of designing real-life projects? , in reply to Jonathan Shariat , Mar 07, 2018

    This is my biggest issue currently. It gets so complicated very quickly. I'm working on a project right now where there's a UX (me), a copywriter and a UI designer. We're on a tight schedule so we're all working in parallel and sometimes on the same pages. The amount of Sketch files and PNG that we send through Slack each day is ridiculous.

    I still haven't found a productive way to collaborate. We spend so much time going back and forth interrupting each other that it even gets hard to just concentrate and do the work. I started to use Figma for my personal projects and I'm slowly drifting away from Sketch. I think I could probably make this work with Figma since we'd all be working on the same file in real time. Maybe having a "Copy" artboard for the copywriter next to the "Design" one could work. It would also be easier to see what changed since they'd be right next to each other. But it involves switching the whole team to Figma, which is no easy task...

    I think InVision Studio aims to fix some of those issues but I just can't see myself switching my whole workflow there. We use it for clients and presentations but I've had so many issues that I don't think I can trust it anymore.

    I think it was supposed to lead to this website, which is a blatant copy of the one posted by Wassim.

    I'm quite excited! I've already booked my afternoon so I can spend some time experimenting.

    I can't believe someone could say this seriously. It almost feels satirical.

    Is this a joke? It has to be. Please.

    Couldn't agree more. InVision going down is a regular occurence and it's a pain in the ass. Can't count how many hours I spent trying to fix sync issues and explain to clients that I have no control over these bugs.

    I could be wrong but I'll believe it when I see it. I still remember when they announced Motion—their advanced animation tool—back in 2015 saying it was coming soon...

    Could it be Pictogon? I think it was on PH a couple weeks ago.

    Looks a lot like all those 2017 trends lists, or 2016, or 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009...

    I'll save you a click: colours, icons, illustrations, photos, animations. It's missing the classic "big typography" though.
