Design tools

The toolkit that powers my day-to-day workflow.

Sketch

UI designs and component library
Sketch is a design toolkit that I use to design everything from early wireframes right through to final user interface mockups. I use Sketch libraries to build responsive, reusable component sets that can be shared across teams.

Abstract

Sketch file storage and version control
Abstract is a version control and collaboration platform that I use to store, distribute, and version my Sketch source files.

Illustrator

Illustrations and icons
Adobe Illustrator is a vector graphics editor and design application that I use for digital illustrations and icon design.

Whimsical

Collaborative workspace
Whimsical is a collaborative workspace that I use to capture and develop ideas in the form of flowcharts, wireframes, sticky notes, and mind maps.

Webflow

Production websites and data-driven prototyping
Webflow is a powerful web design tool that I use to build production-ready, responsive websites.

InVision

Rapid prototypes, reviews and design handoff
InVision is a design platform that I use to rapidly create clickable prototypes from my Sketch files. It helps me to gather feedback from stakeholders and the team early and to capture highly contextualized notes.

Principle

Animation and motion
Principle is a powerful tool that I use for designing animations and screen transitions. Principle videos often form part of my UI specifications.

Axure

Interactive prototypes for user testing
Axure is a powerful prototyping tool I use for creating complex interactive prototypes that require data and logic rules (e.g. if, else).

Lookback

In-person and remote user testing
Lookback is a tool that I use for conducting and recording user testing sessions. I use its comment section for logging and coding events during the sessions.

Other tools

I have also used other design tools whilst consulting on client projects including Zeplin, Marvel, Silverback, and Balsamiq. My preferred analytics tools are MixPanel and Amplitude although I have used popular alternatives such as Google Analytics, Firebase, and AppSee whilst working on client and personal projects.
