Do you design in the browser?

    Tried it, but for me it's much too limiting, because it always takes a certain amount of time until you marked-up something in the browser. However in a graphic app it's much faster to test out ideas, to try new things. Also, if you design in the browser, there is a much higher risk that you just think in boxes. Sketch is still the tool no. 1 for me to design - sometimes I also iterate on things in the browser, but mostly I jump between Sketch and Chrome if I design stuff.

      Knowing what you use a tool for is quite good. What I like about working in HTML first is that it really makes you think about the structure of your page. This is often so much more important than that "creativity".

      The tools we use steer our design direction. Design in the browser does this, but Sketch / Photoshop as well.
