We live in a world that is dynamic, designing and building software that lives on devices that are always changing and evolving. These devices have multiple screen sizes, densities, orientations. Our experiences live in this medium, and adapt to ever-changing constraints. This leads us to an important principle:

Design tools should have the same properties as the medium for which we are designing.

Josh Puckett does an exploration on the properties of future design tools. Meanwhile, Alasdair Monk is building something quite like that.

Between Sketch, Framer, Pixate, Affinity Designer and this, I can wait barely wait to see the landscape of design tools in the next 5 years.
