The workflows from design to a shipped digital product are broken in many ways. Think about that painful manual labour when you implement design and have to deal with often incomplete specifications or use cases that weren’t accounted for. When you translate a static representation of colors, typography, and measurements to code, you miss a range of context specific details that make or break the user experience. In addition, when translating an image based representation to code, you’re effectively doing work twice.
But hey, it’s not the designer’s fault! Instead, blame the tools that have been lagging behind. Design tools are generally not well suited to cater to the nitty gritty details of a digital product, like states, user input, live data, error handling, localization, and platform specific layout constraints and rendering.
