  • Posted to Several UX Design Tools You Need to Use, Apr 12, 2019

    Sketch is nowhere on the list, yet it's clearly the most used UX Design app right now. https://cvcompiler.com/blog/do-designers-dream-of-electric-sheep-the-most-demanded-design-tech-skills/

    Sadly, this article reads like content marketing that only exists to pad Paperform's SEO.

    Get up and move at least once an hour. It's cliche, but that's what it takes. Take a walk, even if it's a short one around the building or in the building. Find ways to work in places that are not your desk. Hopefully you have a laptop and can take it to a another corner of the office, or to a table you can stand at. This is immensely helpful, even if it's only for 30 minutes a day. Not only is it good for your overall health, those changes of scenery are great for your creative flow.

    Beyond all of that, get a dog if you can. Having a dog means I walk a minimum of 2 miles a day, which is great for both your physical and mental health.

    "...a comprehensive resource for helping you make your ideas look awesome without relying on the help of a designer."

    I suggest coming at this with the perspective of "learning how to design" rather than "tricks to use so you don't need a designer." It's far more helpful and valuable in the long run to learn a little design skill and see the process as design, instead of diminishing the design as a practice and trying to sidestep it.

    I've used ViewSonics for years because they're reasonably priced, have excellent color and reliability. My current is a ViewSonic VA2855SMH 28" 1080p LED.

    Yes, people get mad over basic compatibility and they're reasonable to do so. Even if Chrome is the better choice (that's merely a preference for you), the entire point of the web is that a visitor doesn't have to use one specific browser on one specific device. Any moderately competent designer/developer should always test on all major browsers.

    It's pretty, but I'll stick with Harvest (harvestapp.com). Harvest doesn't hide the product until you sign up, and they don't claim to be free while collecting 1% on payments.

    Rather broken on Firefox. Clicking the green button does nothing.

    I am a bit surprised that the entire Uber design team didn't quit or revolt during this process.

    Color Oracle is another great app for OSX that helps you simulate various versions of color blindness.
