Firstly, I would like to congratulate the XD team for finally releasing a preview. So far, it certainly is impressive and really exciting to see a proper tool for UX design from
While I do believe that taking inspiration is great, I feel as though a lot has been taken from Sketch as far as looks. While this is great, I do prefer the darker themes that adobe applications
are known for (ie. Photoshop & Illustrator).
Is there going to be a more a dark theme or Adobe UI DNA for this XD application?
TBH, I am tired of the look and feel of Sketch and was looking forward to something more "Adobe" since moving away from PS and Illustrator for most of my work.
I even started using Affinity Designer for doing UI design just because of their dark UI allthough it feels like going back to photoshop which isn't what i want for UI work also it isn't working nicely for pixels perfect work since there are pretty significant pixel aligning and snapping problems.
I feel the Sketch UI is far to cluttered and distracting.
By now Adobe XD is starting to become really usefull for my daily design work and i really like the pace the updates are going (faster is always better though ). Also i must admit that i really didnt believe in it at first when i tried the first few beta's and started to think Sketch was the only way forward but thats turning around now and i am really digging the minimal UI, just want it dark!
Thanks for reading!
Thanks for trying out XD!
