    For sure spend more time on the actual app and not this crap. I do not give a shit about your water bottle, pencil, laptop sticker or other schwag. Make a good app first then I might be excited about wearing something that represents it. FFS.

      Here, I made a list of alternatives for you. A few of these even handle Adobe file formats. Maybe one of these will become a shining beacon of productivity for you and help clean up some of the vitriol in this community.

        I am just fine with Photoshop / Illustrator. I just wish Adobe XD or Adobe Design or whatever the decide to call it at launch was better than it is. I was very excited to see an app that might bring a lot of the things Sketch is great at to Windows and Mac. Thanks for the list, I have looked at / used all of those except for Canva. For my work I unfortunately have to stay in Windows. I suspect if I was making a new lifestyle app for iOS most of these apps would be amazing! Sorry if I upset you with my honest opinion about their identity redesign.

      As far as I know, this isn't the team directly responsible for the Adobe XD app, but the team that works across all apps to create Adobe's UI language? Adobe had a team called 'Experience Design' that predated XD... now, it seems as though they're getting around to rebranding because Adobe has subsequently launched a product with the same name.

      The fact that I can't actually figure out how Adobe Design fits with the rest of Adobe makes this a pretty confusing identity, though. I still can't work out whether Adobe Design is an internal Adobe team or an outward-facing organisation, and the branding doesn't provide a lot of context as to how to differentiate between the two different Adobes.
