Aren’t there too many design formats?

    I see some promise in tools that gap the divide between design and engineering.

    You don't need to be an engineer to use Xcode Storyboard. You don't need to be an engineer to use real React Components for your prototypes in Framer X. Formats are not a problem with these tools, because the format is the same for design and engineering.

    Tools like Photoshop and Illustrator was built in a different age for a different purpose.

      I mean literally built for a different purpose. The fact we relied on photoshop so much when it was a photo editing tool not a design tool.

      There's power in tools that bridge that gap, but I've also seen those tools be barriers to some great designers because they don't have the flexibility that designers need sometimes. I'm hoping for great things with Framer and Framer X though, it's been the closest I've seen to cover the gambit of skillsets.
