My team has recently purchased Axure and are now in the process of attempting to integrate it into our workflow. The initial idea was to utilize Axure for UX designers for wireframing purposes only. As we’ve noodled around and found further functionality around commenting and allowing stakeholders to review the work we have entertain the idea of integrating Axure into other disciplines. Specifically, visual (UI) designers.
There’s no denying the fundamental relationship that designers hold dear with Adobe. Whether that’s Photoshop, Illustrator, etc… Personally, I use illustrator to do all my design work and likely will never change that reality. It offers a flexible, creative environment with no limitations. Allows me to work freely and efficiently.
What it boils down to… I need some way to avoid doing double the work. We will continue using Illustrator to create designs. I need the ability to take my illustrator files (shapes, text, groups, images and all) and copy/paste/import into Axure as separate components rather than one flat image.
I’ve seen suggestions for Sketch+Axure, but Sketch does not deal really well with pasting artwork from Illustrator into it. Perhaps my one-time attempt at it isn’t an accurate view into its possibilities. If that’s the case… how exactly does Sketch integrate with Axure?
Another thought… Project managers would love JIRA integration. Is that a thing?
- I need a way to use my design work created in Illustrated in Axure without having to recreate each UI component.
- Heard of Sketch, but not having luck with it. Pasting into sketch from illustrator seems wonky.
- Any other methods or tools?
