What is PSD to HTML?
Methodology of success in digital product development.
PSD to HTML is a popular phrase used to explain the workflow of taking a screen UI/UX design mockup and converting it to code in order to make it functional on a web browser.
Traditionally, UI/UX designers handed off screen designs in Adobe Photoshop '.psd' file format to front-end developers, and hence came the name, PSD to HTML.
However, market is now flooded with much more efficient screen design tools, like Sketch, Adobe XD, Invision Studio, Figma, Framer X and Marvel. These tools offer features to ease the process of wireframing, UI/UX screen designing, prototyping, collaboration, developer handoffs and much more.
There has been lot of debate if PSD to HTML is dead and whether UI/UX designers should also building production quality code? In some use cases, like side-projects or small scale projects it is ok for UI/UX designer to do design & code as well. But for UI/UX designers, agencies or startups building product(s) at scale, it is highly recommended to setup PSD to HTML workflow, as modern front-end development has evolved a lot in itself and require expertise.
