Sketch

Product design tool to create, test & collaborate on ideas

About Sketch

Sketch is a product design platform, which helps businesses create, test, and collaborate on ideas with team members using color variables, layouts, shared libraries, vector editing tools, plugins, and more. Designers can zoom into designs for precise editing at the pixel level, export, or share assets on a drag-and-drop interface, and set up resizing rules based on screen sizes according to requirements.

Using Sketch, organizations can create icons, customize designs' topography or font, and use shortcuts, mathematical operators, and the shorthand method to toggle grids or layout views and adjust or resize a column's width and color. Designers can build product design prototypes by linking various parts and maintain a library of symbols or text and layer styles to share them with relevant collaborators. The software allows businesses to store designs in a cloud-based workspace and preview prototypes for user research and testing purposes. Contributors can also edit, inspect, and comment on designs or assets and browse documents and projects on a centralized platform.

Sketch facilitates integration with various third-party applications such as Zeplin, Lokalise, Overlay, Flinto, Avocode, Abstract, and more. Organizations can also add or remove contributors, manage finances, view finances, and download assets for production via a web browser.

I love Sketch. I've dropped the practically limitless other options that I've picked up over the years to almost exclusively use this tool for all my designs.

Pros

Easy to use, quick to learn, and an every day tool in my office. I have done everything from web design to logo design to photo editing in Sketch (not recommended, but awesome what can be done). I absolutely love it, and I'm really impressed with the team and pricing model as well!

Cons

Sometimes it is a bit slow to get features that I would hope for (I'm talking to you, dropper tool shortcut key), but overall it just does an excellent job at letting me do my job.

Somehow this bungled mess of a design program has become a can't-live-without UX tool for our company. The tight integration with Invision is probably the reason for that.

Pros

Layers. The layer management is pretty easy considering you can end up with thousands of layers in no time, you don't really have to think about them too much and items are easy to move between groups and layers.

Cons

It's slow. If the comp has over 50 screens, good luck getting anything done. Randomly stops working and spins the beachball for 2 minutes. Saving takes minutes and has no feedback that it's working. Constantly makes my laptop fans spin like a turbine just to change a font color.

Alternatives Considered

Adobe Illustrator

Reasons for Switching to Sketch

Sketch is better streamlined for UX design. The integration with invision makes sharing and updating easy. Illustrator has its own faults as well.

Competitors have easily overthrown it

Reviewed on 29/07/2022

Pros

It was easy to use up until you needed to create and use design systems.

Cons

Creating design systems and components in Sketch was a TASK, sometimes it got to 2 designers trying to solve a problem that didn't even make sense for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

I also solve my web design & development service. When I get any client this time they want a live demo of how to look there website. This time I create a prototype using Sketch. I can create very fast and easily from here.

Pros

Our company offers a full suite of IT Services Like web design & Development, Graphics Design, also digital marketing, so our prototyping needs to run and then hand off to my UX counterparts. Sketch allows us to manage both ends of the spectrum and everything in between, ensuring consistency and collaboration between team members. They then take those and turn them into high-fidelity designs that we use to test with customers. Sketch works great for this.

Cons

Sometimes keyboard shortcuts are not the same as photoshop. This system needs to improve I think. Because maximum designer uses photoshop that why you design your keyboard shortcut like photoshop then much easier for your user.
