WEAPONS OF CHOICE
A lot of times people ask me what I use in designing and coding, so just to put this to rest:
- I design with Photoshop (web & print) and Illustrator (print, iconography & branding).
- I slice and prepare images with Fireworks.
- I code with Textmate and debug with CSSEdit (but still code my css with Textmate).
- Unfortunately I still need to have Windows around for testing. I use Parallels Desktop for that.
