Design Tools for Today’s Web

by sa • May 15, 2014

Even though I learned about designing for the web in what most would consider the modern era, I still learned (what I would consider) the old way of doing things. No, I’ve never made a table-based site, but I learned how to build a site without all of today’s CSS techniques. I remember slicing gradient images into repeatable, 1-pixel-wide background images, I remember how annoying it was to make a scalable container with rounded corners, and I remember adding classes of even and odd to list items and table rows.

I learned the ways of Photoshop, Illustrator, and other Creative Suite applications, but I had no set processes or preferences early on—I was bias-free, and nothing was sacred. There’s no arguing that the Creative Suite applications are powerful, feature-rich, and have the intangible value of being industry standards—the PSD format is almost as universal as PDF—but, they just didn’t feel like the right tool for the job, especially to someone who was new to it all.

As browsers became more advanced and rendering shifted from images to native CSS, the old, established applications fell out of step. A weird divide grew between how things were done in Photoshop and how they were implemented in code. The time was ripe for an application that was built, from the ground up, focused on the new era of interface design. And that’s when I found Sketch.
