UX Design Tools

As UX Design tools are evolving fast, we created a list to help you find the tool that will work best for your designs. If you’re interested in UX design but don’t know where to start, consider Beginner UX Design Course or Intermediate UX Design Course for more information. In the meantime, read on for an overview of several effective UX design tools.

UXtweak is a UX research platform helping designers optimize and evaluate their designs with powerful research tools for improving the usability of websites and apps, from prototypes to production
sketch logo
Sketch is another favorite with designers getting started with UX design, and it’s easy to see why—considering its intuitive interface. Its ability to create beautiful interfaces makes it a solid competitor to Figma for product design.
invision logo
InVision is a versatile design tool that has a strong focus on enabling a top user experience. Using Invision, a UX/UI designer can go from outlining the user journey to collaborating on early design, to wireframes and prototypes, and finally to its design handoff features.
axure logo
Axure provides a platform for creating wireframes and lo-fi prototypes which is easy to use but also doesn’t compromise on function. The software allows users to quickly create prototypes with data-driven interactions without having to use any code at all.
Plerdy is an all-in-one user behavior analysis tool for improving user experience and making customers love your website's or web application's design. With Plerdy you can quickly figure out what works, what doesn’t, and why by analyzing heatmaps or watching user session recordings.
figma logo
Figma is one of the most popular design tools around. Featuring a cloud-based design tool, it’s used for designing and building prototypes with gorgeous design features. The software is also applicable for creating wireframes and other deliverables like mood boards.
proto.io logo
Proto.io is another quality service that enables UX/UI designers to create high-functioning prototypes while remaining fairly friendly to beginners. This combination is not easy to pull off, but Proto.io does it brilliantly, creating final products that work and feel like a finished product.
adobe xd logo
XD is Adobe's UI design software, focused on creating product prototypes, mobile apps, and websites. It provides designers with the tools they need to create fully-fledged prototypes, including workflows, element creation, animated transitions, other dynamic elements, and more.
marvel logo
Marvel is an all-in-one design tool that offers tools for design and wireframing, through the prototyping to user testing stages. The software is incredibly easy to use, making it perfect for quickly generating prototypes and designing simple and effective user interfaces.
balsamiq logo
Balsamiq has been an industry-leading wireframing tool for some time now, and it’s easy to see why. The hand-drawn design forces UX/UI designers to keep their wireframes super low-fidelity. This allows them to focus entirely on functionality and user flow while keeping visual aspects to a minimum.
framer logo
Framer is known for having somewhat of a learning curve by requiring a basic level of CSS and HTML code knowledge for aspects like interactions and animations. Final prototypes made with Framer are about as close to a final product that a prototype can get.
Origami Studio is a tool originally built to be used by Facebook’s designers, now made available for free for everyone. It offers a more complex prototyping tool than others on this list, giving designers the tools needed to create more hi-fi prototypes.
