Figma & FigJamMy go-to for mockups, wireframes, and prototypes. Their basic process mapping and vector-editing tools are pretty good also. NotionKind of an intimidating tool to learn, but it stays on my list because of its flexibility, writing experience, and (generally) speedy performance. Affinity Photo & DesignerIf you don’t use Photoshop or Illustrator daily, but need comparable tools on occasion, why pay for a subscription when these apps are so reasonably priced – and so good. Draw.ioA free process mapping tool, which is surprisingly powerful and pleasant enough to use, especially for the price. AppleI tend to use Apple hardware and software for a lot of the work I do. Not a fanboy at all, they have plenty of problems – but still my preferred experience, despite that. WordPressMy go-to for building most websites. Not always the best choice, but the power of their ecosystem is strong. Visual Studio CodeA great, free plain-text / code editor. PixelSnapSometimes you need to measure things on your screen. This is by far the best tool for the job. PikaA pretty good color picker and contrast-checker. 1PasswordMy current pick for a robust, yet user-friendly password manager. ReederStill the best RSS reader IMHO. Fresh AirIt’s hard to be creative if you’re in a poorly-lit, noisy, windowless office. When you need to clear your head or get inspired, just go for a walk.
