3 Smart Tech Tools for Designers

I’ll give you three smart technology tools for designers:

1. Online video editing software – I use Adobe Premiere Pro and love it.

2. A well-placed keyboard key – I use a Mac and Apple’s own Trackpad, but the Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse is a close second. (I’m a PC guy.)

3. The ability to integrate 3D models with other kinds of digital assets – Apple’s iCloud is the leader in this area for now, but there are some interesting alternatives out there.

A new generation of tools is making it easier for designers to collaborate, create and share information. There are three I’m looking at that are changing the way we work.

1. Findability

Findability is a key challenge in the design industry, because there’s so much information out there about design and visual thinking, but it’s all scattered across many different websites and platforms – and only some of it is easily accessible to designers. The problem is exacerbated by the fact that many designers aren’t organized in terms of searchable skillsets or areas of expertise (whether they’re a “web designer”, “graphic designer”, “interaction designer” or something else).

The digital shift has made it easier to find what you’re looking for – and a few digital tools have changed our approach to this problem, enabling a more focused way of finding information.

2. Collaboration

Collaborating with others isn’t just an exciting career choice; it’s also essential for creative work. In the past, working with others meant sending files back and forth between two locations, or collaborating on a telephone conference call. But now we can do it more efficiently in real time, sharing content via cloud-based tools like Google Docs, Dropbox and Skype – and we can

People who use technology to solve design problems should know about D.I.Y. (Do-It-Yourself) synthesizers, and open source hardware tools such as the Arduino and Raspberry Pi.

A lot of the specialized equipment that brings technology into play in the studio is pretty expensive, so these days it’s important to seek out alternatives where possible.

There are two main factors that help you keep costs down when you use open source hardware:

1. You can buy the part in kit form, which means you only have to buy enough parts to make one unit, or a few kits at a time. In other words, you don’t have to buy lots of stuff you don’t need before you’ve found out if it is usable for your job;

2. You can get help from others who’ve done the same thing, because their experience is shared information that helps you solve problems faster;

I’m not a fan of the term “gadget.” It’s an Americanism that feels like a bit like “jerk”—a word you’d use to talk about someone who is self-important, clueless, or just annoying. In addition, as the name suggests, a gadget is something you play with; it’s something you can take apart and put back together again or throw away.

Gadgets aren’t for me: I want tools to make my life easier and more fun. Actually I don’t want any tools at all. I want things that make it easy to do things better and faster.

But here is the thing about tools: They are often very useful in their own right. You might not expect that from something so simple as a screwdriver or a corkscrew, but it’s true. You can use them as screwdrivers and corkscrews for years before realizing that you can also use them as hammers instead of beating nails into boards, or screwdrivers instead of using them to pry open cans of paint.

And these days there are so many clever new devices that they’re hard to keep up with. It’s easy to get carried away by the buzz around gadgets and start thinking they’re important in their

1. Adobe Creative Cloud: Creative cloud is a suite of products and services for digital content creation, design, editing, and delivery. It provides the tools for designers to work in a collaborative environment and deliver their designs faster than ever before.

2. Apple MacBook Air: The MacBook Air is a lightweight laptop designed for comfort and power. It delivers long battery life with multitasking capabilities that keep you working all day without running out of juice.

3. InVision: InVision helps businesses build digital experiences that are beautiful and intuitive to use. Trusted by 20,000+ customers like Slack and Medium, InVision is the best way to design your entire app… no coding required!

For example, i can’t be the only one that has a hard time learning how to use a new software package or website. I’ve tried to get my coworkers to explain things but they don’t always know what they are doing and they are too busy with their own jobs to pay attention. So, I have started making an effort to learn how to use these tools and websites on my own.

I am sure there are other people out there who feel this way as well. So, in an effort to help me out, I thought I would share some of the things I’ve found useful in my quest for knowledge.

The Internet has given designers the power to make anything they can imagine. But like all new powers, this one has its pitfalls. Since there is a lot of stuff out there that no one knows how to use or even understand, it can be hard to know where to begin.

So the best place to start is with the things that have already been well understood, and that have been around for a long time but have just recently become cheap and powerful enough to come within reach of most people.

They are:

– Lightweight computers like the Raspberry Pi (the low-power computer with a full Linux operating system).

– 3D printers (print your designs as beams of light instead of plastic colors).

– Digital cameras (take great photos without any film).
