Tools don’t matter

Can you design iOS with Microsoft Word? Well maybe you never thought it was possible, have a look at the video and then let’s talk…

When you know what you want to create, when you have a clear vision of the result then tools are merely a way to get there and you will get to the result you want.

In the video above, you can see a perfect execution of someone executing the iOS design into Microsoft Word. So while this is really an interesting approach, I have meet along my way designers doing webdesign with InDesign, or directly in CSS.

Some years ago, you could still find designer who would design your website with color pencil and a drawing table.

And you will find web developper who use Angular JS to make your site happen, while some would use perl, or python and some work with WordPress or Drupal.

You want to know the difference?


Because it is not about the tool, it is never about the tools. End users don’t know nor do they care how the sausage was made. A tiny majority have opinions about it should be done, but the reality is simpler. As long as you solve the problem at hand in an elegant and affordable manner, no one will really care about your tools of trade.
