New to the group so please be patient.
My background is in corporate design, print and digital. For the last 5.5 years, I worked for a company that for not entirely bad reasons was behind in its digital game. I used Photoshop, Indesign and Illustrator to create digital mock-ups. I’m now looking for a new job. There seem to be a lot of opportunities for people who know Sketch or Figma. I’ve been studying Sketch, I don’t find it difficult but now I’m seeing it’s no longer all that favored. It’s also frustrating because I don’t believe staff designers often times have the responsibility of creating web pages from scratch. Are the jobs that want one role to include Indesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Sketch, Figma, XD, Premiere Pro, and After Effects for real, or are they simply trying to find a unicorn at a time when a lot of people are willing to take any job because there aren’t many available? If I invest the time in learning a digital layout tool, which should I go with? I have the Creative Suite so I’m thinking XD but will it translate?
