Without the right app design steps in place, it’s like rolling a dice and wishing for a six. Sure, the app you unleash into the marketplace may be a hit. More likely, it risks sinking without a trace because it didn’t appeal to the target audience and didn’t work the way it should. Effective mobile(…)
During the Design Value Conference, our CEO, Yuga Koda, spoke on UXPin’s latest way of improving the design process for teams that would like to bring the single source of truth to design workflow, without developers’ help – Merge Component Manager. Yuga explained the “why” behind Merge Component Manager and showcased how it works. If(…)
Our friend from PayPal, Anthony Hand, decided to share how to make designers’ lives easier using parsing props with UXPin Merge. Merge is UXPin’s revolutionary technology that helps you import and sync your dev’s UI components from the component library in the design tool. You can bring the components via Storybook integration or Git repository.
As technology and product design workflows evolve, new tech roles open. UX engineers are one of those emerging niche positions, helping to facilitate collaboration between design and development. We’ll explore the difference between a UX designer vs. UX engineer, their responsibilities, and how these team members work together. UXPin is a code-based design tool bridging(…)

We’ve put together our favorite product design YouTube channels and influencers to inspire your next project. We’ve selected the best YouTube channels featuring product design and product development content from some of the Internet’s most creative people. One(…)
Many programming languages use packages to build and scale websites, software, and other digital products. These packages allow engineers to extend a project’s functionality without writing and maintaining additional code. This article will explain these terms from a designer’s perspective, so you get a basic understanding of how packages work and why engineers use them.
A UX engineer’s (UXE) toolkit includes design and engineering tools. They are engineers first, so most tools apply to development, but they also use a fair share of design tools. Working between product design and development means that UX engineer tools must allow for collaboration between both disciplines. They must also work with DesignOps and(…)
What Is Design Iteration? Design iteration is the repeatable process of improving a product (or part of a product) in relatively short but regular bursts, otherwise known as ‘design iterations’. These design iterations can consist of high-fidelity prototypes, mid-fidelity wireframes, low-fidelity sketches, or even simple diagrams such as sitemaps. Design iteration drives the overall design(…)
Key Takeaways Feedback loops have three stages, that is action, effect, and feedback. They are used to understand users, validate design ideas, build information architecture, as well as improve usability. Feedback loops solve problems and answer questions, but they can be either positive (increase an input action) or negative (decrease an input action). Understanding feedback(…)
Design handoff tools help facilitate smoother transitions from design to development. These tools provide engineers with practical documentation, high-fidelity prototypes, and features to communicate and collaborate effectively. Without an effective design handoff process, designers and engineers spend hours, days, or even weeks of back and forth trying to bridge the gap between design and development.
Like any digital product, launching a design system is just the first step. The next step is about supporting, evolving, and scaling your design system as it matures with your product(s) and technology. The design system team must also gather user feedback for system improvements, bug fixes, and new components. There are no right or(…)
Version control has been a software engineering best practice for decades. A version control system (VCS) allows engineers to collaborate efficiently while working independently. With the rise of design systems, version control has become an essential part of cross-functional collaboration and maintaining a single source of truth across the organization. UXPin Merge’s Version Control System(…)
MUI is one of the most popular and robust React component libraries. Developers use MUI to put together user interfaces for React apps. MUI is also useful for prototyping. Using this library, a designer can create high-fidelity prototypes that are fully interactive and ready for usability testing or even the handoff in practically no time.
UXPin is a product design platform used by the best designers on the planet. Let your team easily design, collaborate, and present from low-fidelity wireframes to fully-interactive prototypes.Start your free trial
