As the experience design sector is continuously and rapidly expanding thanks to new developments, hopes for better tools and apps are growing fast. Accordingly, the request for improved UX keeps on increasing, so the pressure on designers and devs to come up with excellent outcomes is only meant to grow. Thankfully, Adobe XD launched new game design features and design systems to help the designers and expand workflows, as reported by Billionaire365.
With the May 2019 Adobe XD release, Adobe implemented some new features that would allow users to produce cloud documents with reusable color palettes and styles and to share them straightforwardly with their team. Regardless you’re representing a startup, a design agency, or a large company, you already know the significance of implementing a design system to provide solutions to satisfy the requirements for design at scale or to come up with a smooth end-user experience.
Besides the new additions implemented in this month’s Adobe XD installment, Adobe will soon roll out a new website which would center on exploring design system. Keep in touch with us for the latest details on that site once Adobe launches it.
