Wireframing

Though this category seems like an opportunity to shine for tools like Balsamiq and Omnigraffle which are tailor-made for wire framing, they fail to break into double digits. Participants seem to favor broader design tools like Sketch, the winner by far, and Illustrator.

What is your primary tool for wireframing?

  • 27% Sketch (by Bohemian Coding)
  • 19% Illustrator
  • 14% HTML/CSS
  • 11% Other
  • 8% None
  • 7% Balsamiq
  • 6% Omnigraffle
  • 4% InDesign
  • 2% Keynote
  • 1% UX Pin

In a pattern not dissimilar from the results for the Interface Design category, tech companies prefer Sketch the most, and large agencies the least.
