Figma 2.0

Design and prototype in one always up to date tool

Sam Rye- Founder
Figma is dynamite, especially now it has prototyping baked in. I wish Figma would integrate with some of the animation tools (Principal et al), as sometimes the prototyping functionality just isn't enough.
Karthik Mahadevan- Founder and Designer at Envision
I used to mostly rely on Sketch, Marvel and Keynote for prototyping, but very recently I tried Figma and found it to be a breeze. I especially loved how easy it was for me to handover to the programmer. It's all online so sharing and collaborating was pretty easy as well.
Sam Rye- Founder
Until recently, I'd been using Sketch + Craft + InVision as my core way of designing and sharing UI work with clients. But InVision always felt like it was designed by 3 or 4 teams of people who never met. Comments could be made it one view, but not another.

We use Sketch at Olio Digital Labs, and it is, hands down, way faster and easier to use than Photoshop. You can easily switch from wireframes to full fidelity designs, export CSS, and there are new, useful plugins being released frequently.

What is ProtoPie?

ProtoPie is a highly interactive prototyping tool for designers to turn their ideas into prototypes that feel real.

UX Planet
What happens when a designer has an idea and wants to convey it to stakeholders or team members? Quite often designers create static mockups and try to explain concepts using plain words. They say something like "After you click on this button you'll see the following animated effect."
SitePoint
As a designer, bridging the gap with stakeholders is utterly important. Properly conveying design and interaction ideas quickly and rapidly with solely static UI designs, mockups, wireframes and even simple click-through prototypes simply doesn't work. This is what Tony Kim thought.
ProtoPie
ProtoPie 3.9  - the largest update since the commercial launch of ProtoPie. And it's finally here!
