How I designed a website without Photoshop(

    I completely agree with this, especially:

    • If it works for you, that’s awesome. Doesn’t mean it will for me.
    • I’m not very good at sketching and find AI and PS way faster.
    • Duplication for quick experimentation is great. Love doing that.
    • Mocks for things I’ll code are usually rough.
    • Mocks for other people are usually pixel perfect.

    Is it such a crime to want to use a visual, mouse driven tool to design?

    If I'm adding a feature to an existing screen, I take a screenshot of it and then add it in. It might not be super flexible, but it's quick.

    It’s pragmatic, and doesn’t conflate the best design direction with technical constraints. I think that ultimately means you’ll end up with a better result, and cleaner code.

    So what ever way you do things, if it works, is the right way.
