Mine is Canva - it has helped me build whitepapers, logos, branding material, video related media and more. What's yours?

Hey Richard, cool topic! Canva is fantastic - a designers best friend. We just launched Tapkit today, it's just like Canva with its creative freedom, full customisation and built in designer widgets, graphics and templates, but allows you to create interactive links - great for bio links, QR, and more - surface across your mobile marketing touchpoints. I'd love to get your feedback! ❤️ Miro - Realtime whiteboards.

I think in termS of UX experience Balsamiq is a great tool accessible to anyone with no experience . User friendly you will be able to visualise your idea and have a better clarity and visibility when speaking to your devs.

We used Trello a lot for planning work and keeping a tab on all the things we had to do. It use to have a more freemium feel to it before the Atlassian acquisition. I still use Trello a lot for my personal projects and even for creative work. Trello is JIRA if it were actually designed for human beings.

@johnofardeal Agree, Trello is much more suitable for small teams like ours for example. Jira is a bit too sophisticated for the most

Notion and Figma 😍 It's like chalk and cheese compared to what I've used before - Confluence/Evernote, Illustrator, etc

@artkhromov I've been using Figma recently and I wish I discovered earlier. I thought it was mainly used for UX/UI people but I've been using it for marketing as well!
Hi
Oh, the canvas is just great. I'm thrilled

Finding the Best Software, Fast.
Sorry it's not sexy, but: Google Sheets. Or Excel. With the right understanding of what is possible, you can build little custom modules/functions/scripts that integrate seamlessly with your workflows, thereby rendering 90% of modern SaaS platforms obsolete. Now, they don't scale as robust database solutions, but they are the perfect way to prototype your architecture and capabilities, getting to an MVP within weeks or even days. The transition to a serious DB backend can be undertaken later, and with a fully functioning prototype you can use to create all your dev stories.
