Remember when web designers used to be total nerds?
Back in the early 2000s, web design was a technical skill; just getting a site to function was considered an achievement in and of itself, and things like interface design, usability, and UX largely fell by the wayside.

A fixed navigation bar, also referred to as a "sticky" navigation bar, is a toolbar that stays in place while the user is scrolling the web page.
It’s a commonly-used site navigation design pattern for displaying a site’s main navigation menu, as well as other essential interface components such as a search box, social media buttons, and notifications. The design pattern guarantees that important interface components are easily viewable and accessible regardless of where the user currently is on a web page.
At our startup, Typeform, we have just shifted our entire web/UI design process from Photoshop and Fireworks over to Sketch. Based on our collective first-hand experiences, we’d like to discuss some of the app’s features that help us get our design work done more efficiently.
