Figma VS Sketch

Figma is like Sketch in the browser with real-time collaboration.

With the limited time I had with it, I can already say with confidence that it’s far more polished and production-ready than in my first experience with Adobe XD. It also has three invaluable features that set it apart: real-time collaboration, vector networks and version history. It can handle dozens of designers working on the same document, at the same time without breaking a sweat. Last but not least, this tool is really fast, easily handling 20+ Artboards in a single document.

How To Become A UX Leader

Let’s say you run a UX team. Better yet, let’s say you don’t. Let’s say you just want to do great work. You’re a consultant. You’re a newbie. You’re an intern. Your position is irrelevant. So is your title. What’s important here is that you want great UX to happen. You want it consistently. You want it now. You want it all the time.

Information Architecture. The Most Important Part of Design You’re Probably Overlooking.

Simply put, Information Architecture is the structure of all the information in your app or website. When we put care into the arrangement of information, we can make it easier to understand and navigate.

In actuality, designers can take many different shapes and forms, but they all have a very similar mindset in how they craft and formulate ideas. This foundation is called design thinking.
