The entire Adobe suite
The Adobe suite is a tool that most of the design community already uses. Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop are widely used among designers at most user experience agencies.
However, if you have not tried “Adobe XD”, it is time to give it a try. It is a great tool for wireframing and visual design, without any restraints on creativity. “Adobe XD” makes the entire Adobe suite more innovative than ever, and is another great tool that user experience designers cannot go wrong using.
Axure is one of the most favored wireframing tools within the user experience community. User experience agencies and designers love Axure because of it’s functionality beyond creating clickable, interactive wireframes.
Our UX designers at Codal also use Axure to create their sitemaps and user flows. Designers can create both low fidelity and high fidelity ‘frames, depending on the needs of their client. Axure allows you to easily share and collaborate on a project.
If you’re in the market for a wireframing tool for your user experience design agency, this is the one to look into because of its broad functionality.
Once the visual design stage is complete, InvisionApp is an amazing prototyping tool. Upload your PSD’s, add your animations and gestures, and your interactive prototype is more than ready to show.
InvisionApp allows you to upload the clickable prototype to your iphone, so it looks like a real app. At Codal, our startup clients specifically love this, because they can use the app to show and pitch to potential investors.
