Sketch vs Figma - Why I switched!

Sketch or Figma? Which should you use? In this video I'm telling you my reasons for switching! Please remember to subscribe It feels like there are a million design tools we're supposed to be paying attention to, but completely switching to a new tool can mean a new workflow, new things to learn, new processes... it's a lot of effort! Recently I switched from Sketch to using Figma and I wanted to tell you why I made the switch and what I'm loving about Figma!

Figma Tutorial - A Free UI Design/Prototyping Tool. It's awesome.

Figma is a web-based (with a companion desktop app enabled by Electron) UI design and prototyping tool. In this tutorial, I create a mobile layout while discovering many of its features. I have to say, this is perhaps the strongest contender against Adobe XD. What do you think? - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Subscribe for NEW VIDEOS weekly!

If you are thinking of pursuing a career as a UI Designer or UX Designer then this video is for you. It can be hard to know where to start and which road is the right one for you to travel down. Although there are some inherent similarities between the two roles they are very different in nature.

Is this a figma review? Is this a sketch review? SURPRISE! It's both!

FIGMA OR SKETCH?! It's the question on every product designers mind! At AJ&Smart, we're building prototypes on the regular, which means we're using a lot of prototyping apps. Sketch has been a favourite among AJ&Smart-ers for a while, but now we're using Figma more regularly. Find out why and when you should use Sketch and when you should make the switch to Figma

This is a review of the Sketch app and Figma in a basic sense. We touch on what we like about both Sketch and Figma and why we think you should use them in your prototyping. And some tips for using both of the design tools.
