What Design Tools Does 'Frontend Cafe' Use?

Hey all! Was just wondering what you guys use for design tools? Previously I have used Adobe XD, but I've been looking into alternatives and there seems to be tonnes of options that are all super similar. Thoughts?

I'm using mainly Sketch with Craft Manager and Invision :)

what does your workflow look like with that? do you just create assets within sketch with Craft and then transfer them into prototype projects for invision?

I'm just mostly creating stuff with Sketch and then uploading it to Invision using Craft. Craft also helps me populate my designs using real data

Most of the time Sketch and as of lately I've been using Affinity Designer. AD seems to be easier/lighter for my oldish mac and wallet :p

I've tried figma and I felt like it wasn't quite there yet. I havent touched it in ~8 months though, is it worth trying it out again?

Totally, it's worth checking out again. I only use Figma now. Haven't used Sketch in over year or so...
