Title: Is it open yet?
Author: Julien Deswaef
Section: Column
The proprietary ecosystem of design apps is booming again. Adobe has lost its supremacy in the toolbox of web designers[^1], and “it’s about time!” I hear you say. An increasing range of new apps is convincing visual creatives that there is another way to do things—a savoir-faire more in tune with the intrinsic granularity of the digital medium. These tools have also embraced a workflow that includes non-designers, working on a diverse set of devices, with practices grounded in a distributed and collaborative ethos. Or at least, that’s what the app vendors are aiming for. Of course this is driven by a web industry that is growing so fast that design departments have had to build new tools to accommodate these massive changes of scale. All aided, it’s true, by the malleability of the medium and the new modus operandi promising that anything not agile or scalable is not fit for this world.
