A few weeks ago I mentioned that I'm using Figma at my new job. As many of you know, I used to design only in Adobe Xd so learning Figma has actually been super interesting! Today, to experiment with these two tools, I'm going to be designing the same app screen in both programs and talking through the differences with components, transforms, shortcuts, plugins, auto layout & more! ◤ Connecting Designers + Jobs 》Browse the job board: 🤍bit.ly/3qOjs62 》Apply to the talent collective: 🤍bit.ly/3uJSuNZ 》Search for talent: 🤍bit.ly/3tVklvM ◤ Skillshare Class 》Intro to UI/UX Design: 🤍skl.sh/3pcWnGC ◤ Follow Me 》Instagram: 🤍itsmaddybeard 》Email List: maddybeard.ck.page 》Behance: behance.net/maddybeard ☆ For Business Inquiries: email maddy🤍maddybeard.com
Is there any way I can use Adobe XD for free apart from the 7-day free trial? Also if I buy Adobe XD, is there any internal subscriptions or anything I need to continue paying for?
Which one do you like the most going to 2023?
Which one you would recommend for new users?
I use Adobe Creative Cloud. I love Illustrator, Photoshop amoung other Adobe apps.
What are your thoughts?
Well, XD lets you design for production, Figma pushes you to design stuff your developer will hate you for.
What VERSION of XD are you making use of and are you connected while using the XD or you're using it offline?
They are two different beasts aren't they? What icon kit are you using to drag those icons in so fast?! Also, would love to see on the screen what shortcuts you're using for each program.
that would be a serif font on a button... :)
Halfway through this video and LOVE this Design With Me series already. Can't wait to get my glass of wine and binge them all later.
Nice video thanks, for the icons in figma i prefer box icons or phosphor plugins. They are cool!
Adobe next year:
$9.9 to get Figma Pro + Adobe XD
i really enjoyed this
I would love to see this also done in Photoshop. I am a life-long Photoshop user and design all my UX/UI/Mocks in Photoshop and still can't bring myself to use either of these tools. I recently had to work with Figma as a client provided their project in that format for us to build/develop and if anything I found the app quite frustrating. The CSS it produces is rubbish, the colour support is inconsistent (renders on screen brighter than the hex values indicate - so don't use a ColorPicker tool that samples the screen). It also doesn't export SVG's with the correct XML headers for the proper MIME-type, and exporting assets in general is a mess, throwing things in folders and few options to choose the filename during export. Then other issues like when graphical assets have been laid out in Figma with layer modes, only to lose all the appearance when you export the flattened art. And the apps themselves just feel like I am moving HTML elements around a canvas and not actually working with pixels or vectors. Yes the apps appear smooth and responsive but I just feel hamstrung. I am sure, over time, I would become more comfortable with the tools.
Hey! Thanks so much for this video!
