The life of a designer can sometimes be a struggle, so it's always great to come across tools which aim to not only make life a little easier but cut costs too. Here are three top tools that aim to do just that…

02. Slack (opens in new tab)
Want to improve communication with your team? Or work remotely but still stay in touch? Collaboration tool Slack is a fantastic solution for clear, real-time communication that keeps everyone in the loop.
Perfect for anyone managing a team of remote employees, Slack enables project development to move forward more smoothly. A new way to get things done, Slack helps you grow your design business by reducing email and meeting times, keeping all team communication in one place.
03. Atomic: Interface design software (opens in new tab)
If you're after a design tool to show off your skills to prospective clients, Atomic may just be the solution. A web design tool, Atomic allows users to create a design in the browser (PC and Mac), and then share on a range of devices, including the Apple Watch.
Starting with either a blank canvas or designs pulled in from Photoshop or Sketch, users can utilise Atomic's toolset to add interactive elements to designs, which can then be shared with clients and colleagues. Offering brilliant collaborative abilities, feedback can be also added directly to the project. A brilliant tool for showing clients mockups or giving developers an overview of what you'd like to create.
