How do I get stuff done? Well, it requires a lot of help.

TOOLS

For all things UI. Made even better by crowdsourced plugins.

Some of my favorites are Zeplin & Symbol and Artboard Organizer.

For prototyping, testing with users, and previewing designs.

Export designs from Sketch for redline handoff to dev.

For user testing. Good price, gets the job done.

Staying in touch with the team.

For interaction design. Easy to test ideas.

While I find Adobe harder to learn and use, it is essential.
