Finally overcame procrastination, reset my Kickstarter password, and contributed 100 bucks to the Akira campaign!
We really need something better than Inkscape for UI design, and this seems like the most promising attempt in a long time. The campaign still has 2 weeks and is at 30%, so I'm hopeful they can still make it.
Hitting my favorite Linux Dungeon Master @BryanLunduke@twitter.com to share a project that aims at rocking the Linux design world.

FOSS community should read this. Open design is possible given the right process, right tools, and learning how to work as a team.
We also need an open source version of Abstract lol
Akira is on the right track to be fully funded, but we need your help.
Share the campaign, write a blog post, talk about it on your podcast, make a video about it, and help us reach more people. A professional UX design tool on Linux is possible!

Brasero, a CD/DVD writer app, is unmaintained but still widely used. Would you like to maintain it? https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/brasero
I want to see more designer types contribute to and create FOSS and for that we need an environment that sustains them, so I'm putting my money where my mouth is and backing Akira: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/alecaddd/akira-the-linux-design-tool
Sure it's a kickstarter, but ay least I can do to encourage more designer oriented projects in FOSS
Have you checked out the Kickstarter for Akira yet? Following Sequeler and Taxi, Alessandro Castellani's latest app is a UI/UX design tool for elementary OS. Back Akira to help him hire on some stellar developers to bring this tool to life. https://buff.ly/2FGHLMD
If you missed the Live Streaming, here's the recording you can watch.
While answering your questions, we talked about the reasons behind Akira, differences with other apps, the team, money, and showed a working prototype.
@Gargron hi, I just launched a Kickstarter campaign for a free and open source design tool for UI and UX designers. It would be awesome to get a shoutout 😄
Thank you so much for your work with Mastodon
Do you want to completely change the Linux Desktop environment forever?
