Looking for tools that will allow UXDs to better work together.

Parameters:
- good for wireframing, UI design & prototyping
- PC or web based only
- not Illustrator + XD
- not PS + UXPin

Ideas?
Thx

We use Axure

BA1 ... you don't have to sell me on Axure, i love it. I've gone down those scripting rabbit holes and loved every minute of it.

What we're trying to solve for is better integration between our wireframe, design and prototype app. Like the way Sketch and UXPin or InVision work so well together. We're a PC house, so Sketch is a non starter. Our designers don't even want to go back to Adobe products after using Figma. At this point, I'll use any proper wireframing tool they want me to (so far I've used Illustrator, Omnigraffle, Axure and now UXPin). As long as it helps the team work better together, I'm in.

OP- hi-fidelity we can design in Photoshop or Illustrator and import the graphics into Axure and quickly turn into clickable prototypes. You can save frequently used artifacts into libraries for reuse...can share libraries with others. Common frameworks such as Bootstrap already have libraries built...lots of free libraries out there. Sometimes for quick and dirty clickable prototypes we'll grab a screenshot of the application, import and slice apart in Axure, and apply actions. Can easily add notes artifacts and also export design documents with generated screens. It's a pretty robust tool, great support from the developers too. I will say it's easy to go down a rabbit hole with scripting if you aren't careful!

I prefer Axure. The hardest part of design is creating the interactions and prototype. Sketch sucks for that, especially in table and interaction heavy designs. The visual can be done elsewhere and applied via a library and style guide. It sounds likes Figmas cool too, I’ll have to check it iut

My entire team uses Axure. Each designer uses other visual tools like illustrator or PS if they need to. I find most visual elements can be achieved with axure minus photos and the saved component library makes the wire framing fast. Our Devs also all prefer the axshare links with Jira. So it’s been a successful team tool.

Yeah that's a lot of help. Thanks.

Ok so no PC versus MAC debates. Have to agree UXPin and Axure at the top for PC. With Axure the other value is being able to build quick start packages for your projects. If you do a lot of the same style of work, you can just use this quick start to have all the common layers, pages and scripts already done.

My UI designers are using Figma and love it. But there's no integrated wireframe app. Another architect is gong to try using it for wires, but we don't have much hope for it.

The goal is to get an app or multiple integrated apps to perform the entire workflow together

Booz Allen, what are you using to do visual design that integrates into Axure?

VML, can't use Sketch. It's Mac only

PCs are not good for design. The PC requirement hobbles design collaboration. Apple owns the creative OS. They just do

Sketch has an axure plugin that works beautifully
