    This is an exciting time, but also a frustrating one. Upgrading or changing a workflow or tool set isn't as easy as upgrading a car or a phone (to say nothing of corporate politics or large teams.)

    A lot of us I think are getting used to a diaspora of tool + tool + tool (for better or worse) while Invision looks to draw us in with an Adobe Design Suite alternative, which of course, we know the follies of such a software monopoly. Are we ready for that again?

      Steven, there are just too many talented people innovating in this space and I think we all want to see that continue to make design better for everyone. I don’t know if we will see a monopoly like that again any time soon ;)

      That being said, I think that a consolidation of tools is an inevitable part of evolution. There is a growing need today for teams to design systems together, rather than draw screens alone. From what we’ve observed, the tool + tool + tool diaspora isn’t working – at least not for everyone. DSM aims to connect a workflow to make design systems together possible.

      We’ve always aimed to build tools that integrate with your existing workflow, and that’s exactly what DSM is. We also have some aspirational ideas of what a design tool could be, and that’s why we’ve created Studio.
