List of best web design tools:

  • Figma : Figma is not an old tool in the list but because of its fast design process and easy to use nature, it tops the list.

  • Sketch : Sketch aims to create designs easier, quicker and has minimal UI which gives it a cleaner look. Despite it’s simple UI, more features can be added to it using plugins.
    * Cost : 9$ per editor, free 30-days trial
    * Availability : Mac
    * Rating : 4.5/5
    Sketch is intuitive and easy but it’s prototyping feature is nowhere near as good as that of Figma. Support only for Mac has definitely limited the number of users Sketch could have. With Sketch you can create pixel-perfect designs because of its amazing zoom feature. So, if you are an absolute begineer and own a mac, Sketch can be a great tool to start with.

  • Adobe XD : If you have any experience with Adobe products in the past, chances of you loving XD is high. Adobe released XD in 2019 as full fledged vector-based tool for web design.
    * Cost : $9.99 per month, free 7-day trial
    * Availability : Windows and Mac
    * Rating : 4.4/5
    XD has support for auto-animation, prototyping, non-static interactions, sharing tools for feedback and so on.

Hence, it might be overwhelming for beginners or even for experienced ones to get a hang of using XD.

    * Availability : Mac, Windows
    * Rating : 4/5
    Despite of it’s popularity, other tools have successfully outshined Photoshop. The learning curve of Photoshop is steep just like other Adobe products because of the large number of tools Photoshop offers. If you want to be updated with the trends of web design, other tools might suit you.
