As a designer, I know all too well how important it is to work with the right tools when you create your project. Not only will it save you gray hairs, but using the right tools can mean making the deadline as opposed to ultimate failure. If you have worked with a software or service that constantly gives you a headache, you know how frustrating it can be and how little you can actually do about it until you find another solution to the problem. Of course, making your project a success takes a lot more than just using the right tools, but it can certainly help. Once you are skilled enough to use them effectively, you should be well on your way to success.
A good approach is to use the most popular services and software to increase your creativity and the speed it takes for you to do what you love. How do you know what software to use when it’s not exactly billboard news what stuff is popular among designers? Just have a look at the infographic that Best Vendor put together on the subject, and you should be one step closer to finding the applications and services best suited for your needs.
The way Best Vendor put this together is to ask 180 designers and creative professionals what they use and what they think about it. The result is this infographic called The Designer’s Toolkit, and by using this, I am sure you will find what you are seeking. Software is of course a matter of personal taste. However, the time it takes to learn something new is probably a good investment instead of continuing to lose time using the stuff you are using right now, and always feeling behind.
