What about it?
The answer to, "Should I be calling myself x instead of a UX designer?" is always YES
tl;dr Always use thumbs up
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!
