If there's one thing you learn while writing about design all day, it's that designers all across the world work differently than you do, no matter how much you feel like you fit into a mold. Avocode is an app that allows developers and designers to work in harmony by giving them better collaboration tools while still working with files from both Photoshop and Sketch. There's a lot to dive into their product for sure, but what I want to talk about today is their new report, How Designers Worked in 2015. Since they get to see what kind of data flows in and out of the Avocode ecosystem, they're in a unique position to see what kind of tools and tricks their designers use on a regular basis.
One standout notion from the analysis is the Photoshop vs. Sketch ratio of 57/43, and how popular Sketch is in North America. Is this more a sign of how Avocode designers work versus the rest? Or are Photoshop and Sketch in that tight of a battle? Frankly, I want to know.
