My toolbox.

We all have our own way of working, our own techniques and our own tools. I’m always interested in finding new ways of working. Ways to improve quality and creating efficiency in my work. Here are some of my favorite tools I currently use in my day-to-day.

Design.

  • Adobe XD – The foundation of how I work. Adobe XD is an all-in-one design, prototype and developer hand-off tool.
  • (The rest of the) Adobe Creative Suite – The remaining Adobe products help round out and support Adobe XD.
  • Unsplash.com – Stock photos with no strings attached.
  • Placeholder.com – Simple, image placeholder solution. Easily reference and customize.
  • Lipsum.com – Tried and true copy placeholder.

Refine.

  • Usertesting.com – User understanding and experience validation.

Communicate.

  • Slack – Slack is used as my primary communication channel for my teams.
  • Trello – Staying organized and project tracking.

Inspire.

  • Feedly – Allows me to keep up-to-date with design trends/news, and my other personal interests.
