#Sketch #Releases #Tools

Some great new features added in Sketch 56! Being able to edit overrides on the canvas (without having to edit them in the property panel is a huge time saver!). If you are working as a team check out Sketch Cloud, now with versioning!

Everybody scrolls

#UX #UIDesign #BestProactices

Evolve your design too quickly and you’ll leave your users behind. Design too slowly and your users will do the same to you. It’s crucial to keep design practices aligned with the way users really interact with digital products and interfaces. To help, Huge’s UX and research teams are collaborating to test conventional and emerging design and usability standards.

About Chris Butler

I help teams understand the real business problems they should solve with AI-centered solutions. The teams we work with are generally asked to “do something interesting” with the data they have. We help them avoid local maxima through happenstance correlations and focus on solving huge business problems. My background includes over 18 years of product and business development experience at companies like Microsoft, KAYAK, and Waze. At Philosophie, I have created techniques like Empathy Mapping for the Machine and Confusion Mapping to create cross-team alignment while building AI products.

Hello 2018!

#Sketch #Prototyping #Workshop #NYC

Hello everyone and happy new year!

I am very excited for what the new year will bring us! So much happened in 2017 in the UX/UI Design and Prototyping space!

Here are some of the things you should check out in case you missed them. A big one for me was the evolution of symbols in Sketch and design systems as well as collaboration among team members, and easier handoffs and if you work with React, lots of exciting things there too.

The last 6 months of 2017 I was pretty busy with a job out of town so I could not organize as many events but I am planning to start the year strong and we'll have events in NYC around:
– "Why it's good to prototype early and often" an event on the (crowded) prototyping space and. Good if you are new to the group/space. This an updated presentation I based on
Timeline by Anima App (just released!)
Fuse Tool's improved UI
Framer Studio
InVision Studio
Figma 2.0

Other big announcement was AdobeXD for Windows

Tons of products now have "Studio" in their name as they all rush to become the all-in-one tool to designers. 🚀

Sketch Workshops in January:
Basic if you are starting now
Advanced if you want to learn more advanced workflows or techniques.

Depending on availability, I organize custom workshop for teams. 

What would you like to learn or improve in 2018?

💌 Shoot me an email
and let me know! 😀

Ciao,
Francesco

Salesforce UX: Living Design System

#DesignSystems #Components #DesignTokens

Scaling a design across all form factors and platforms has become the new challenge in the software industry. From watch to phone to tablet to desktop, teams must also consider iOS, Android, Win8 and HTML5 implementations. Opinions on native vs. HTML5 aside, most companies use a mix of both to balance the best user experience with time to market and reusability cross-platform.
