Code name: Project Comet. You might recall previewing Adobe’s latest solution for UX designers at the most recent Adobe Max conference.
Today, Adobe announces the official name for the all-in-one tool for UX designers: Adobe Experience Design CC, or Adobe XD. If it sounds powerful—that’s because it is! Let’s take a look.
3 Ways Adobe XD Solves UX Designers’ Problems
Adobe XD is meant to be everything a web or mobile app designer needs, from wireframing and visual design to interaction and previewing of content.
First, the idea is for it to eliminate any friction in the process that limits your creativity. Second, Adobe XD is all about high speed and high performance. “We’ve focused on areas where we can really speed up the design process,” says Andrew Shorten, director of product management.
For example, in Adobe XD, you have the option to utilize a UI kit within the program or create something completely custom. In addition, all of the screens in your project will appear as artboards on a large canvas, and adding interaction between them is as easy as drawing lines from one screen to another.
And third, the tool is being built to address all part of the problems you, as a UX designer, solve during UX projects. Once you give Adobe XD a try, you may find you can end subscriptions to a variety of other tools, thanks to Adobe XD’s all-in-one nature.
