Adobe XD is a UI (user interface) and UX (user experience) design tool that allows you to design websites and apps—not only in terms of visual design—but also motion design and interactivity.
Using Adobe’s flagship web design tool, you can create a prototype that looks and feels like a real website or app. It will help you, your clients, and your development team envisage the final product and build it quicker than ever.
Why You Should Use Adobe XD in Your Designing Process
The first step in the creation process of every product is generating and forming its main idea. For this purpose, a pencil and a piece of paper can do the job, but this traditional method can be limiting. Using Adobe XD, you’ll have access to more space and tools to grow and develop your basic ideas. It facilitates the design process and makes creating smarter and faster.
