Here’s a great Premium UI kit designed by our friend Nick Parker, a very talented UI/UX designer from Moscow, Russia.

Pretty good tutorial by the Youtube channel DesignCourse , showing how to design a clean and good looking homepage with Adobe XD (on Windows).
30 minutes long and very informative.
The moment a lot of Windows based UI/UX designers have been waiting for has finally come: Adobe XD has been just launched for Windows 10.
Adobe mentioned it would be coming out by “Late 2016” and it seems like they kept their promise.
XD is only available for Windows 10, and it’s been built as a proper Universal Windows Platform (UWP), the first one ever made by Adobe.
This choice was made as they wanted to focus on a modern development ecosystem allowing them to obtain the best possible performance, make proper use of the latest touch-enabled hardware and build a “future proof” app which will run on all next generation Windows devices.
Very useful XD tutorial made by Caler Edwards, showing how to create a mobile pop-up menu with a ON/OFF Switch, how to use the Apple IOS provided by XD and how to use the prototype tab to make the Switch UI function.
For several years Adobe Photoshop has been the tool of choice for designers wanting to create web sites, mobile apps and user interfaces in general.
Then in 2010, the new kid on the block made its appearance on the market: Sketch, from Bohemian’s coding.
Especially in the last couple of years, it became a great alternative to Photoshop: cheaper and completely dedicated to UI/UX designers, it gradually stole a lot of designers’ hearts and went on to form a loyal and growing community.
Still, a lot of designers never left the Adobe ecosystem as you can’t really do everything with Sketch, and most importantly, this software is only available on Mac, so all Windows users could never switch to it even if they wanted to (unless you run Mac OS on a virtual machine or come up with similar hacks).
So how many people are still using Photoshop for UI design? Hard to say, but my guess is A LOT.
I still see plenty of new UI .psd resources sold on marketplaces like Themeforest or UI8 (UI kits, icon sets, ..), lots of Photoshop tutorials and courses are still being posted on Youtube, Udemy, Lynda and the likes, many projects made with PS are still appearing on Behance, and so on..
Hell, I also never stopped using Photoshop for most of my older projects, even though I use a mix of Adobe XD and Sketch for my new ones.
But things are finally changing for all these happy (or not so happy) Photoshop users: the time for a big shift is coming very soon.
