Discovering Sketch

I’m not a designer but I use the tools of designers a lot. I spend a lot of my time in Photoshop exporting assets for projects and on top of that paying what feels like an unfair price to do it. It’s not that I don’t think it’s worth it, I’m just ready for something […]

Fireworks Alternatives: Acorn, Drawit and Opacity

I would have to consider myself a fairly recent convert to Fireworks when the rest of the crowd is considered. I really jumped on the bandwagon when CS4 came out, specifically because of the type engine changes that took place. All that is well and good, but it’s no secret that Fireworks is plagued with […]
