    Kenny, my main man. We use all sorts of tools. At Etsy, to be honest, we don't care so much about which tools a designer chooses, but rather that the design process is transparent and collaborative. That said, here's a quick list off the top of my head of programs/apps I've seen in use:

    • Code. For everything.
    • Sketch
    • Adobe CC
    • Invision
    • MS Paint
    • Keynote
    • Google Docs

    I can't think of any more, though I'm sure there are some others I'm not aware of/can't recall right now.

      I am curious as to what does your team use MS Paint for.

          Oh well :)

          Unless it's meant to be a joke—I am sure you don't use MS Paint as you would use Sketch or Invision. Does your team use it for any specific purpose?

          It would be funny to see "Junior designer. Requirement: Proficiency with MS Paint" on the job listing page.
