Not yet, but then again a) my print jobs are modest / limited and real pros likely have needs I don't, and b) I almost always set everything myself and use only finished, compressed files. Meaning, I'll outline the fonts and send a PDF or TIFF, never any proprietary formats... and those are universal!
I can't speak for OP, but early Sketch was super buggy and lacking certain major features. In some respects, it still is... as a 1.0, AD felt much more polished and iterated more rapidly. The whole "pan and zoom 1,000,000%"business is just nuts. That sort of thing would bring Sketch to its knees and beachball for days.
(I say this as a long-time user/fan of Sketch.)
For sure. I'm only going to work with tools I own, not rent from a landlord.
Let them do it in Wix. Not the kind of client you want
I hate to say it, but this is basically what it boils down to. Seek better clients! Trust me, they're out there. My guess is you're not charging enough.
A barber was charging $15 / cut, lowered several times to attract customers. And the ones he got would nickel and dime him. My buddy goes for a cut, is crazy impressed, and told him he should quadruple his fee. Against his better judgment, the barber does, and now he's getting people used to spending $100 on a haircut who think he's a bargain!
Basically if you completely reconfigured PS from the ground up with a focus on UI design, and kept 80% of the features, while adding in the most relevant tools from AI, you'd have AD (that's over simplifying but basically it).
^ Exactly this!
I've been able to switch to Affinity Designer for all my print work (which is not substantial). So glad to leave adobe behind!
Who doesn't love Gilroy? Especially GIGANTIC GILROY
Man, Upstatement basically just embarrasses all of us, without even trying.
To be fair, he did say the reason he designs typefaces is precisely because his handwriting is so bad...
