8 Best Plugins To Use In Adobe XD

Adobe XD is one of the most efficient software that web designers use to produce low to high fidelity wireframes. What’s better about Adobe XD, is that it optimises the assets that you use and can be easily handed over to the development team. We get it. Digital designers are like the sandwich between the digital marketing team and the development team. They are constantly on the rush between identifying the functionality of the website or application that they are designing and how viable the platform can organise contents for SEO and marketing purposes.
