If you’re UX designer, you probably use one of these 3 most popular digital design tools. Today we’d like to share with you 3 major changes in the main UX design tools: Figma, Sketch, and Zeplin happened recently. Stay tuned with us!
Recent design tools updates you should be aware of are here!
Transitions for Figma prototyping arrived!
As you build a clickable prototype of your design, add a dissolve, slide, or push effect to link frames to each other. This will make the prototype’s transitions feel more realistic to the viewer, whether that person is a developer, prospective client, or a relative who still doesn’t understand what you actually do for a living.
Want to “slide” from one frame to the next over a duration of a few milliseconds? Now you can. Need to mimic the animated motion of an iOS app to bring it to life and impress a new client? Handled.
These transitions are essential for getting your ideas across, and you have been clamoring for them with a flood of feedback via Spectrum and Twitter. The community has requested this functionality nonstop since last summer.
Sketch received Prototyping, Libraries on Sketch Cloud and an official iOS UI kit in Sketch 49!
The whole design process now can be seamless.
Prototyping feature lets you transform your designs into interactive prototypes and preview them, without ever leaving the app.
This new set of tools allows you to connect your Artboards, apply transitions, and then preview your designs right inside Sketch, on your mobile devices with Mirror, or on Sketch Cloud, where you can share your prototypes with colleagues, clients, and the world.
With Shared Libraries, you can now download and subscribe to, Libraries that have been uploaded to Sketch Cloud and, because all of this is built on open web technologies, these Libraries can be stored and accessed from anywhere on the web.
With iOS UI library built-in you received access to everything, from tab bars and status bars to buttons and switches, ready to be inserted into your latest designs.
Zeplin became more extensible!
Now you can build your own Zeplin extensions and share them with hundreds of thousands of developers using Zeplin every day. Also, you’re allowed to pick and choose which extensions you’d like to use in your projects.
Great, isn’t it?
