UI / UX design Joined over 2 years ago
Well done ! very good update but need free guide ! and to be able to select 2 elements from different group to align them together !!
I’m totally agree with you , and it’s exactly the reason of my asking in DN ;) can we train like a marathon runner without Adobe !
When you work alone yes, but when you work with other designer, everyone need to paid or no one . Always a compatibility issue when you don’t use the same version, for me it’s worst than adobe because an hidden subscription based model .
Filma is a great tool ! Totally agree ! But web base software give me bad performances ;( and for InVision studio , i’ve play with it a lot recently and i think in 2 month it will be ready ! Already great feature in it , if Invision fix some bug and add some little function it will be near from the perfect tool
I’m so agree with you !
Like I said it’s not a price point of view , it’s the hypocrisy of the speech of the company . And like i said performances of sketch app is not like 2 years ago, I use sketch app since 3 years and sketch was always buggy and laggy but now it’s worst than before. Sorry to say that but sketch was a precious photoshop alternative for UI but not a great tool
In the computer world we don’t have too much choice ! Windows 90 % of the market and Apple 10 % , we don’t have the same definition of a monopoly ! Please don’t tell me Linux ....
Thanks for your answer and sharing to the community.
I know code pretty well but I’m most a right brain guy and I’m very happy to have this skill but I don’t like to code. Print is not my main activity but like everyone I want to use the right tool and improve a skill in a software with potentially no limit in this skill.
For sketch, the problem for’me was what said and the philosophy of the founder of bohemian coding 3 years ago, when he critized Adobe with the subscription plan. At this time I could install sketch with my 2 computers, after that : only 2 computer, after that only one computer , after that 99$ for a year of update and for one computer ... and sketch became very buggy, very laggy , my friend who don’t pay for the update can’t open my files, was very disappointed... it’s not for money but principle !
So decided to go back with Adobe ( Adobe Xd surprised me, not like sketch but with very very good point) .
But illustrator seam to me like a dinosaur of the design (just a quick exemple : we don’t see live the color of the element when you change the color, need to apply, to make a group with a lot of elements is so boring etc..), Lightroom is very good with the iPad app too. Pemiere and after effect are so tricky to understand and master, the UX and the UI of these software are so bad to me ! It’s a torture to use them ! Photoshop is photoshop , so good and so bad ! And the monopoly !!! Don’t like that at all !
This is the probleme : to want something different, outsider , new , do you think it’s possible without sacrificing quality of’our work or put some unnecessary obstacles ? Like someone who want to go in the filmmaking industry with iMovie ? A good tool to start with but after a moment you will need to use the right tool !
Here’s mine (like that I’ll learn from your workflow, and maybe you can correct me)
1 - I’ve an interview with my client and ask him a long list of question to have a good understanding of the project
2 - After that, at my office, I look for similar website (depend of the activity of the client) to see the concurrency and I make a folder with concurrency website. Take note about all this.
3 - I start to make list of the target (age, gender, etc ..) and write all the scenario
4 - Start to make a wireframe (with link) and think about the scenario
5 - look for some inspirations
6 - Make the UI style guide
7 - Make all the design
8 - Take feedback from some random people I know who can match the target
8 - Send the design in PDF to my client
9 - Take feedback from my client and do the changes (the part I hate the most !)
