"Designer’s workflow on Windows" Great for Apple leavers(medium.com)

    I introduced myself as a web designer & web developer in the article. There isn't any other design software I use beside Adobe software. Even for logo & branding identity, UX/UI, mobile apps design, I still use Adobe software for these. For motion design, Adobe After Effect is the software of selection, but I'm not sure if there's a better alternative on Windows.

    Regarding title selection for DN, that flew past my mind, at the time I was staring at "Should designer code ? ? ?" placeholder.

      If you're going advice others how to move over windows, you should at least have something more to recommend than just Photoshop (even if you don't use them)

      Anyways as a UX/UX designer, here are a few tools I'll recommend.

      Mockups = Photoshop, Figma, Affinity, Adobe XD is coming (there's already a pre-beta release)

      Icons/vector graphics = Illustrator

      Prototypes = Invision, Balsamiq, Atomic, Axure, MS Visio, After Effects

      For drawing flows, sketches, making notes = Onenote

      Hands off to devlopers = Zeplin, Sympli

        Yes, I advised Adobe softwares (not Photoshop precisely) for design related things and most of these apps are online and cross-platform.
